The change in captain and players has so far not helped Sunrisers Hyderabad to get back to winning ways from last season and so far they have already lost both of the matches played in IPL 2023 quite comprehensively. Punjab Kings on the other hand are roaring with confidence as they won both of their matches and sitting on four points in the points table. SRH vs PBKS Match 14 will showcase both franchises in completely different mindsets because one team is struggling while the other team is trying to survive in the race which is not a mind frame to be in so early in the tournament. SRH vs PBKS Match 14 Dream11 Prediction, Match Preview, Head-to-head stats, weather forecast & pitch conditions are discussed in detail below.

Below are the SRH vs PBKS match 14 details of IPL 2023.

How To Watch SRH vs PBKS Live Streaming
Cricket fans in Australia can watch IPL 2023 live streaming coverage on Channel 9 & Foxtel network by paying an affordable subscription cost which also provides you access to other exclusive OTT Fox content. Tapmad TV is now the exclusive IPL broadcast partner in Pakistan which is great news as in past few seasons fans from Pakistan have not been able to watch IPL in their country.
The humidity will increase as the match progresses which will eventually cause the dew factor to play a role while the temperatures are expected to stay in the range of 31 to 28 degrees Celsius. The good news is even with high humidity levels there are no rain interruptions expected so we will see a full match.
Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is often considered a good chasing venue because the pitches here are often flat and the boundaries are not that big. The average first innings score here is around 170 runs however with the dew factor in mind team might want to score more than 180 runs to provide bowlers a bit of extra cushion when the ball gets wet.
SRH vs PBKS Match 14 Probable Playing XIs
For Sunrisers, Brook & Markram holds the key for them as their batting hasn’t been able to put up a show and get a good defendable score to their reasonably experienced bowling lineup. SRH might go with the same strategy they utilized in Lucknow with only three overseas players in the starting XI if they bat first.
Punjab Kings like Gujarat Titans have enjoyed chasing targets so far in the IPL 2023 but if SRH puts them to bat first they might bring in Rishi Dhawan in place of Prabhsimran Singh to further strengthen their bowling while defending the target.
Below are the SRH vs PBKS Match 14 probable playing XIs for both bat and ball options.
Probable bat-first XI: 1 Anmolpreet Singh (wk), 2 Mayank Agarwal, 3 Rahul Tripathi, 4 Aiden Markram (capt.), 5 Harry Brook, 6 Abdul Samad, 7 Washington Sundar, 8 Adil Rashid, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Umran Malik, 11 T Natarajan

Probable bat-first XI: 1 Prabhsimran Singh, 2 Shikhar Dhawan (capt.), 3 Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 4 Jitesh Sharma (wk), 5 Sikandar Raza, 6 Sam Curran, 7 M Shahrukh Khan, 8 Nathan Ellis, 9 Harpreet Brar, 10 Rahul Chahar, 11 Arshdeep Singh

SRH vs PBKS Match 14 Dream11 Prediction
We have put our faith in the young cricketers from India yet again while formulating our best possible SRH vs PBKS Match 14 Dream11 fantasy team and with a good batting wicket available in Hyderabad we expect young prospects like Prabhsimran & Mayank Agarwal to go big and help their franchise register a victory.
Have a look at our SRH vs PBKS Match 14 Dream11 Team for Grand Leagues.
Wicket-Keepers – Prabhsimran Singh, Anmolpreet Singh, Jitesh Sharma
Batsmen – Shikhar Dhawan, Rahul Tripathi, Mayank Agarwal
All-rounders – Sam Curran (vc), Aiden Markram, Sikandar Raza
Bowlers – Arshdeep Singh (c), Nathan Ellis
While it is a batter-friendly pitch we have decided to take a risky call by opting for Arshdeep as our SRH vs PBKS captain who can trouble SRH batters upfront in the powerplay who have already struggled in the last 2 games. Left-arm swing bowlers are always the most difficult to face in the powerplay. Sam Curran like last game is our vice-captain who is a crucial member of this Punjab team to make vital contributions both with the bat & ball.

SRH vs PBKS Match 14 Prediction
Sunrisers Hyderabad even though have a notable record at home but the recent form and team combination have made them the underdogs for this game while Punjab Kings are marked as the clear favorites for this game by expert bookmakers with a winning probability of around 55%. For SRH to win there will be a huge responsibility on Aiden Markram, Rahul Tripathi, and Anmolpreet Singh to make sure they score a good enough defendable score while batting first to give something to their reasonably good-looking bowling lineup who can create problems for Punjab.
