Punjab vs Hyderabad in Indian T20 League

The match between Punjab and Hyderabad should produce some incredible mini-battles with both teams having some of the top batsmen in the world playing for them. The KL Rahul-led team (Punjab) has made several changes in their arsenal during the auction by bringing in players like Glen Maxwell and Sheldon Cottrell among many others. Hyderabad too made some smart buys in the shape of Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen to fill in the all-rounder’s spot.

Punjab has not been that consistent a team with only two play-offs finishes. However, Hyderabad has been one of the most consistent teams in the Indian T20 Premier League with 5 playoff finishes in the 7 seasons they have played, and a title win in 2016. While Punjab keeps on making some major changes in their squad before every season, Hyderabad believes in maintaining a group of players that will form the core of the team every year. This is where the major difference lies in both teams. Their head-to-head record resonates with this fact as Hyderabad has won 10 of the 14 matches they have played. 

Even though the team from South India looks like more of a well-rounded side on paper, Punjab has managed to form a decent team with all their recent acquisitions. With the addition of Glen Maxwell, KL Rahul will be breathing easy with the stability and firepower the Aussie provides. Hyderabad will be yet again hoping for the Warner-Bairstow performing at their very best so that the likes of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan have enough on the board to defend. With the Punjab team looking slightly on par with Hyderabad, this could turn out to be one of the best matches in Indian T20 Premier League 2020.
