Past performance of Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad

Playing since 2013, Hyderabad has already won the IPL championship in 2016. In contrast, Punjab Kings, which has been part of the IPL since its commencement in 2008, is yet to achieve its maiden championship title. They have made it to two playoffs within the sixteen seasons of IPL but, unfortunately, have never been able to win.
Hyderabad seems to have a clear edge on paper; however, the team has faced challenges in recent years, with consecutive bottom-half finishes in the seasons from 2021 to 2023. Punjab on the other hand has finished 8th in the IPL 2023. The team started their IPL journey well in the last campaign but in mid when Shikhar Dhawan sat out for a few games in the IPL due to his shoulder injury, PBKS lost its winning charm.
There have been some fascinating matches between Punjab and Hyderabad in the last few years. So far, in the past, both have had some of the best batsmen on their teams. Hyderabad had one of the best batting line-ups, consisting of legends like David Warner, Kane Williamson, and Johny Bairstow. Punjab, too, had a great batting line-up with players like KL Rahul and Chris Gayle on their team. This led to matches between these two teams, giving rise to some of the best batting performances. No wonder then that their matches are perfect for fantasy cricket.
For the upcoming 2024 season, the SRH franchise has brought in Pat Cummins who is expected to lead the team. The franchise has also added some other star players, including Travis Head, the star of the World Cup final. Similarly, the PBKS, known for their high-flying performances, have assembled a strong squad comprising national and international talents. Under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, the team boasts players like Harshal Patel, Liam Livingstone, Chris Woakes, Rilee Rossouw, and Arshdeep Singh, among others.

Head-to-head performance: Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

In the past, under the leadership of their captain David Warner and head coach Trevor Bayliss, Hyderabad has had a steady and positive performance. However, in recent years, the team's overall performance has seen a decline. With changes in captaincy and struggles to perform consistently across matches, Hyderabad has faced challenges. Nonetheless, in specific matchups like PBKS vs SRH, they have showcased resilience, managing to secure victories in 3 out of 5 matches over the last three years.
On the other hand, in the past, Punjab has played in a dynamic fashion, which made them a sight to see. The team has maintained a strong level of competitiveness, consistently delivering commendable results.
