Below is my sample script for you:

 $date1=get-date("08/21/2020")
 $date2=get-date("08/11/2020")
 Connect-PnPOnline https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/michael
 Get-PnPRecycleBinItem | ? {($_.DeletedDate -gt $date2 -and $_.DeletedDate -lt $date1) -and ($_.DeletedByEmail -eq 'john@contoso.com')} | Restore-PnpRecycleBinItem -Force

here is a screenshot attached. also, i have tried it with both modules at a time with one but still the command runs but the file is still in the bin

Install-Module -Name SharePointPnPPowerShellOnline

Get-PnPRecycleBinItem | Where { $_.DeletedByEmail -eq "amit@mstestgigmosamyad.onmicrosoft.com"} | Restore-PnpRecycleBinItem -Force

Hi Mike

I notice the date is in US format will I need to amend it to UK format for this to work on my SPO site?

Thanks
