The ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will witness its first-weekend doubleheader on Saturday, September 25, albeit at different venues. The Delhi Capitals take on Rajasthan Royals at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi at 03:00 PM. Whereas, in a battle of laggards Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will square off against Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, in Sharjah, at 07:30 PM.
SRH are almost out of reckoning for a play-off berth, after they suffered their seventh defeat on Wednesday against table toppers Delhi Capitals in Dubai. Batting first, Kane Williason-led side managed to put 134 runs on the board, which was chased down by Rishabh Pant’s team in the 18th over, DC won the match by eight wickets.
PBKS, on the other hand, last played against Rajasthan Royals in Dubai, where they lost the game by a narrow margin by two runs last time out. The Royals scored 185 batting first, however Punjab quite inexplicably came out on the wrong side of a last-over thriller yet again, this time against Sanju Samon-led RR
Both Punjab and Hyderabad have been the floundering sides in this IPL season and find themselves in the bottom two spots of the points table. However, both sides will look to break their losing streak and the hope for a win in this fixture could help them go on a winning streak.
