The SRH vs PBKS reverse fixture will be played in Hyderabad on Sunday, from 3.30 pm IST. Punjab Kings are already eliminated from the tournament. SRH became the third team to make the playoffs after their game against GT was a washout.

A win for Sunrisers Hyderabad will give them a chance to finish in the top two. They need a few other results to their way as well.

SRH vs PBKS Team Analysis

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

SRH have a chance to finish in the top two if they win their last game against the Punjab Kings. They can finish with 18 points and eventually end up in the top two if RR wins one of their remaining games. Hyderabad already has a better NRR than the Rajasthan Royals. 

This has been a season of two halves for SRH. They dominated in the first half with five wins out of seven. Losses to RCB and RCB affected their NRR. However, their 10-wicket win over LSG followed by another good win over GT have now brought them to a situation where they can finish in the top two.

Punjab Kings 

This has been another disappointing season for the Punjab Kings. Apart from a few individual performances, they have not had team performances as a whole. Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma have been their two biggest positives. Losing Shikhar Dhawan due to injury was a massive blow for the Kings. 

Sam Curran who led the Kings for a few games will be back for national duty ahead of the World Cup. Thus there are chances of Dhawan likely to return to top captaincy after almost a month's break. 

SRH vs PBKS Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

The Hyderabad track has been a high-scoring venue so far. SRH posted 277 in the very first match of the season at this venue against MI. They have posted above 200-plus total in plenty this season. In the last match, they chased 166 in less than overs against LSG and are poised for another big-score batting first. 

Form and Fitness 

The form is a concern for the Punjab Kings batters. With the ball, Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel are in form and the spin twins Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar are in form as well

For SRH, their openers Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head holds the key. The duo has been in splendid form with the bat and is one of the big reasons for SRH's success this season. Their bowlers have backed up their batters as well.

Tactical Acumen

Pat Cummins, the experienced international captain has made all the right calls that has enabled SRH to get to a position where they can eventually finish in the top two. Sam Curran as PBKS skipper had some good games. Now it will be over to Shikhar Dhawan who is expected to return to leadership for the last game.
