In the 14th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), Punjab Kings (PBKS) will clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Having won just one match, PBKS might replace Riley Meredith with Chris Jordan. Meredith has been very costly for them in the last three games. His bowling figures were 1/35, 0/21 and 1/49.
On the other hand, SRH head coach Trevor Bayliss recently said that Kane Williamson has recovered from his injury and will be soon fit to play. He further mentioned that in that case, the Hyderabad-based franchise would replace Jonny Bairstow. It will be interesting to see which four overseas players will make it to the final XI. Also, Kedar Jadhav might make it to the team instead of Abhishek Sharma.
