Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) claimed their first victory of the season after comprehensively beating the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 14 of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the M. A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday.

The toughest T20 saw two teams clash, both of who had forgettable records at Chepauk. One had won their last game at the venue in 2012, while the other had lost 6 games played there. Yes, it is SRH vs PBKS. Who would better their record at Chennai?

PBKS won the toss and chose to bat. They had a really slow start, and then, Rahul fell. Soon, their batting lineup crashed, as it had against Chennai. Wickets were taken regularly, and SRH bundled them up for 120.
