SRH vs PBKS injury update

SRH injury update Sunrisers Hyderabad has no injury concerns ahead of the game while their captain Aiden Markram also returned to play the last game after missing the opener.

Key players SRH senior top-order batters have not made enough contribution so far with Mayank Agarwal (8) and skipper Markram (0) not living upto the expectations. Rahul Tripathi (34) got some runs after scoring a duck in the last game while Anmolpreet Singh (31) successfully replaced Abhishek Tripathi at the top of the order after the former couldn’t score in the first game. Markram, however, scored 175 for South Africa recently and is expected to lead from the front.

Among middle-order batters, Abdul Samad played the role of finishers well with a knock of 21 in the last game while Washington Sundar and Harry Brooks have failed to click. Sundar hasn’t performed with the ball as well and was used for just an over for the last game.

Among pacers, senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has failed to contain runs and has picked just a wicket in return. Umran Malik (2 wickets) and Fazalhaq Farooqi (3 wickets) are the only two bowlers, who have taken wickets across two games but haven’t managed to be the lead bowlers. Spinner Adil Rashid gained form as he picked 2/23 after going wicketless in the first game.

PBKS injury update Punjab Kings have some injury concerns as Liam Livingstone is yet to join the side as he is undergoing rehabilitation and will join next week. Kagiso Rabada is available for selection on completion of national duty while Bhanuka Rajapaksa also is fit and likely to play the game. The Sri Lankan batter was hit on the hand at the non-striker end in the last game and couldn’t bat beyond that.

PBKS key players: Shikhar Dhawan (86) and Prabhsimran Singh headline Punjab batting after sublime knocks in the last game. Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s return is also crucial as the southpaw scored a crucial half-century in their opening game. Wicketkeeper-batter Jitesh Sharma has played good cameos in the middle order as well and appears eager to fire big.

Shahrukh Khan and Sam Curran have played the role of finisher well but the latter didn’t do the best of work with the ball yet. His death bowling remains crucial, something that Arshdeep Singh couldn’t do in the last game. The left-handed pacer is the strike bowler for PBKS with five wickets in two games but proved a bit expensive in the death overs.

Nathan Ellis took charge with the ball as he took four wickets against RR, leaving Kagiso Rabada’s selection difficult. Harpreet Brar, Sikandar Raza, Rishi Dhawan, and Rahul Chahar are yet to make a telling impact among spinners.
