In
match
37
of
IPL
2021,
Sunrisers
Hyderabad
skipper
Kane
Williamson
won
the
toss
in
Sharjah
and
elected
to
bowl
first
against
the
KL
Rahul-led
Punjab
Kings
on
Saturday.

While
Sunrisers
named
an
unchanged
side,
Punjab
made
three
changes,
with
Ravi
Bishnoi,
Chris
Gayle
and
Nathan
Ellis
coming
in.

The
two
sides
occupy
the
last
two
berths
of
the
IPL
points
table
this
season.
While
Sunrisers
are
languishing
at
the
bottom
of
the
table,
Punjab
are
placed
a
rung
above
them
at
seventh
place.

Desperate
to
register
a
win,
Sunrisers
will
take
comfort
from
the
fact
that
their
only
win
this
season
has
been
over
the
Punjab
Kings.
Furthermore,
in
the
head-to-head
count,
the
Kane
Williamson-led
side
are
the
overwhelming
favourites,
having
won
on
12
occasions
out
of
their
17
encounters
so
far.

Meanwhile,
Punjab
will
look
to
put
behind
their
dismal
result
in
the
previous
match,
after
losing
the
match
against
the
Royals
from
a
comfortable
winning
position.
While
the
playoff
hopes
are
almost
over
for
the
Sunrisers,
both
sides
will
have
to
register
wins
to
stay
afloat
in
the
race.
After
resuming
the
second
half
of
the
IPL
2021
season
on
a
losing
note,
both
Punjab
and
Sunrisers
will
be
eager
to
pocket
a
win
and
turn
their
fortunes
around.

Captain’s
Speak:


Kane
Williamson
(SRH):

Will
bowl
first
as
it
is
a
small
ground
and
there
is
a
chance
of
dew
later
on.
Hoping
to
start
well
with
the
ball
and
get
some
early
wickets.
No
changes
in
the
playing
XI.


KL
Rahul
(PBKS):

Was
looking
to
bowl
first
as
well.
Now
will
look
to
put
up
a
good
target.
Not
much
to
lose,
so
we
are
keen
to
get
out
there
and
turn
it
around.
(Gayle
back)
Still
trying
to
find
the
winning
eleven
and
sometimes
it
worked
and
sometimes
it
didn;t,
but
having
someone
like
Gayle
is
good
for
the
team
and
he
has
won
a
couple
of
games
for
us.
