Match Prediction – PBKS vs SRH, 28th Match IPL 2022 – Who Will Win Today’s Match?

Punjab Kings will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 28th match of IPL 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Punjab Kings have had a pretty strong start to their IPL season and they are fourth in the table. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad are third from bottom and they have won two of their four matches so far.

Punjab kings have easily been one of the most entertaining sites in IPL 2022 so far. While their top-heavy approach to batting, including going at a very high tempo, has been criticised by some experts, it has also got the job done for them on certain occasions. The likes of Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow comprise one of the most terrific batting units in the IPL and Punjab have never shied away from showing their big guns.

Captain Mayank Agarwal finally arrived to the party and scored his first half century of IPL 2022 in the previous match against Mumbai Indians. He was also joined by fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan, who hammered 70 runs off 50 deliveries. Punjab ended with a total of 198/5, which they ended up defending by 12 runs. This time, Odean Smith redeemed himself by taking three wickets in the final over and finishing with a four-wicket haul.

PPKS have won three of their five matches so far and have six points to their name. They also have a net run rate of +0.239 and are fourth in the IPL table. Punjab are level on points with KKR, RR, LSG and RCB.

After an extremely disappointing start to the season with two consecutive losses, Sunrisers Hyderabad are clawing their way back. They have won their last two matches and are third from the bottom with four points to their bank.

Sunrisers took on formidable opponents in Gujarat Titans in their previous match. Their bowling unit, led by T Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, did extremely well to restrict Gujarat to a total of 162 inside 20 overs. Captain Kane Williamson then steered the run-chase with a fantastic half-century as SRH won by eight wickets in the final over.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have a significant advantage in head-to-head record between the two teams. Of the 18 matches played, SRH have won 12 games while PBKS have been victorious on only six occasions.

Who will win today’s match – Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, 28th Match IPL 2022?

Although the head-to-head record paints the picture in Sunrisers Hyderabad’s favor, Punjab Kings might have a little edge over their opponents in this contest. Punjab are a revamped side this season and their batting prowess hasn’t been hard to miss. If the likes of Mayank, Dhawan, Bairstow and Livingstone get in their groove, the Sunrisers’ bowlers will have an extremely difficult task on their hands. PBKS are favourites to win this game. Find out why in our SRH vs PBKS prediction analysis.

Game changers for Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, 28th Match IPL 2022

For Punjab Kings all eyes will be on their batting unit comprising stars like Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone and Odean Smith. Kagiso Rabada’s pace-bowling prowess is formidable while Rahul Chahar can dismantle opposition in the middle overs with his spin.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to turn towards captain Kane Williamson and hope he stays at the crease longer. Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran, and Aiden Markram are also capable of hitting the big shots. Umran Malik needs to exhibit more control along with his frantic pace while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan have been reliable. It will be interesting to see how the side copes without Washington Sundar who brought plenty of balance to the starting XI.

Who will be the best match bowler?

Kagiso Rabada has been one of the most consistent bowlers in the Indian Premier League over the last four seasons. He has scalped 82 IPL wickets at an average of 20.43. He has six scalps to his name this season already.

Who will win today’s man of the match?

Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Odean Smith, and Kagiso Rabada are expected to be in contention for PBKS. For SRH, Kane Williamson, Washington Sundar and T Natarajan are expected to be in the running.

Who will be the best batsman for Punjab Kings?

Liam Livingstone has been the best batter for Punjab Kings in IPL 2022. The hard-hitting English batter has slammed 164 runs in five matches at an average of nearly 33. The jaw-dropping strike rate of over 186 has been the best facet of his game. Livingstone is also known to take wickets in the middle overs.

Who will be the best batsman for Sunrisers Hyderabad?

Whenever captain Kane Williamson bats well, Sunrisers Hyderabad wins. This was also true in the previous game where Kane steered the run-chase against one of the most formidable bowling units in the league with plenty of aplomb.
