In the 45th match of IPL 2021, Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Rajasthan Royals in Dubai on Monday. KKR defeated PBKS the last time these two teams this season. 

Kolkata has their find of the season, Venkatesh Iyer, batting superbly while opening the innings for KKR. He scored 41* against RCB and 53 against MI, proving his worth on the grandest stage.


KKR spin bowling department - Narine & Chakravarthy can provide breakthroughs at any time for their team.  Prasidh Krishna came back from an injury in the last match vs CSK and was hammered by Jadeja, giving 22 runs in an over. 

A good sign for Punjab Kings is that Aiden Markram seems to be back in form, as he scored 42 off 29 balls in the last match vs MI. Also, they would be hoping that Mayank Agarwal recovers from his injury and joins them for this match.

PBKS bowling seems in good hands, with Arshdeep, Shami & Ellis leading the pace department while Harpreet Brar and Ravi Bishnoi can be destructive with their spin any day.

The head to head count between these two teams stands at 19-9. However, this time the contest can be closely contested.

KKR vs PBKS Head-to-Head(H2H):

  • Total – 28
  • Kolkata Knight Riders – 19
  • Punjab Kings – 9
