IPL 2021 Fantasy: Punjab Kings vs SunRisers Hyderabad, Top Picks

IPL 2021: The likes of KL Rahul, David Warner, Chris Gayle and Rashid Khan among others will be in action on Wednesday and they bring with them plenty of points in fantasy cricket.

Punjab Kings take on SunRisers Hyderabad in Match 14 of Indian Premier League at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Several T20 heavyweights including KL Rahul, David Warner, Chris Gayle, Rashid Khan and Nicholas Pooran among others are set to take the field yet again as both teams look to climb from the bottom half of the table to the top half. SRH are yet to register a win in the season and lie at the bottom in the points table. PBKS are better-placed than SRH but only just as they occupy seventh position with one win out of three matches. Nevertheless, for fantasy cricket fans this match brings yet another opportunity to score points with clever selections.

Here are the top picks for fantasy teams ahead of PBKS vs SRH

Jonny Bairstow (Credits – 9.5): At 9.5 credits, Jonny Bairstow is a good choice among wicket-keepers as he comes at a lower price than KL Rahul (10.5). Bairstow has returned scores of 43, 12 and 55 in the tournament thus far and he bats at a healthy clip at the top of the order with David Warner. He has fetched 173 fantasy points already.

Mayank Agarwal (Credits – 9): Mayank Agarwal gained some form in the last match, scoring 69 runs and adding 122 with KL Rahul for the first wicket. Agarwal had a good IPL 2020 and after two low scores this season, he seems to have hit the right notes with the bat. He could fetch yet more points than he did in the last match and add to his tally of 124 points.

Deepak Hooda (Credits – 8.5): The big-hitting Deepak Hooda played a cameo in Punjab Kings’ last outing that helped the team get close to 200. His 13-ball 22 not out had two sixes and together with Shahrukh Khan helped give the innings a final flourish. He has accumulated 177 points already and could be a valuable addition to a fantasy team.

Rashid Khan (Credits – 9.5): With bowlers from both sides struggling in the tournament, the experienced Rashid Khan is a safe bet even though he comes at a price. He has four wickets from three matches so far and he is only expected to add to the tally every game on pitches in Chennai that assist the spinners.

PBKS Vs SRH IPL 2021 Live Score: SunRisers Hyderabad Look To Open Account vs Punjab Kings

Match 14 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will see Punjab Kings (PBKS) clash with SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, on Wednesday. Both PBKS and SRH have endured a dismal run in this year’s edition of the IPL as both are languishing at the bottom of the table. SRH is at the last position with three defeats in as many games, as David Warner’s side will be aiming for a fresh start to their journey this season. For KL Rahul-led PBKS, the story has been so close yet so far this IPL, having won only their opener against Rajasthan Royals (RR) by four runs. Both teams are expected to make crucial changes in their line-up in order to find the right balance going ahead in the tournament.

IPL 2021, PBKS vs SRH: SunRisers Hyderabad Players To Watch Out For

PBKS vs SRH: SunRisers Hyderabad, quite in contrast to their name, are in the darkest corner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 edition, with three losses out of three pitching them at rock bottom.

SunRisers Hyderabad, even in their most pessimistic minute, would not have envisaged that they would none from three matches, at the end of the Indian Premier League (IPL) points table. They seem to be seriously out of sorts, with skipper David Warner conjuring up so many ways to get out while the rest have not put up much of a fight, with bat or ball. But the benefit of a long league is that io provides every side with a long rope, waiting to see if they can clamber up the order, or hang themselves with it. While it is indeed a long league, SRH could run out of time if they don’t conjure up some points.

Here are some of the key players for SRH:


Irrespective of how many runs SRH’s Australian skipper scores in any match, there is no denying that he is the fulcrum of SRH and needs to come good sooner rather than later if his team has to make it a good IPL, as it was in 2020.

Warner has scored 93 runs so far and while he has had a couple of half-decent knocks, including a half-century, the left-hander has not looked too convincing. Warner’s 54 off 37 balls had stretched Royal Challengers Bangalore but as has been SRH couldn’t seal a win.


The Englishman needs to come good at the top of the order consistently. With Wriddhiman Saha not doing justice to the opener’s slot, Bairstow will surely be the lynchpin at the position, not to mention his additional role as the wicketkeeper.

Bairstow has so far scored 110 runs for SRH, up and down the order, but since his slot has got cemented at the top, he can now focus on the job at hand and the franchise desperately needs him to come good.


Listen to the latest songs, only on

It’s rare to see the Afghan leg-spinner outside the top ten wicket-takers’ list but Rashid Khan if off that ladder board, for now at least. Four wickets from three matches is rather modest haul for him, but an economy of 5.33 is right up there.

Rashid could be a key bowler for SRH, since as the tournament progresses, it is pretty clear that spin will be critical to every side’s fortune and especially wrist spinners will be key. Rashid has his task cut out, with his side scraping the bottom of the barrel as of now.
