The Sunrisers Hyderabad will be locking horns with the Punjab Kings in Match 70 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on May 22. Not only will this be the final league game of the season but also the final match for both these sides. The Royal Challengers Bangalore’s emphatic eight-wicket win over the table-toppers Gujarat Titans ended these two teams’ playoffs qualification hopes.

Both SRH and PBKS will now be playing for pride in this inconsequential clash but more importantly, they would be hoping to bow out with a consolation win. Hyderabad would be hoping to do the double over Punjab having got the better of them by seven wickets in the reverse fixture.

After a huge 54-run win over RCB last week, the Punjab Kings were able to prolong their stay in the tournament. After that contest, they received a setback where they went down to northern rivals Delhi Capitals by 17 runs. On the other hand, the Sunrisers have been inconsistent throughout the season and they would now be without the services of their skipper Kane Williamson for the final game as he has flown back home for the birth of his second child.

Pitch and conditions

Usually, teams prefer chasing at the Wankhede after winning the toss during the evening games due to the conditions being hot and humid and also taking the dew factor into consideration in the second innings. Nonetheless, this match would be played on a used wicket just a day after the clash between the Mumbai Indians and the Delhi Capitals. Thus, the surface could wear down as the contest progresses and the spinners might come into play in the second half. Therefore, the captain winning the toss could have a bat first.

Playing combinations for SRH vs PBKS

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad registered a hard-fought three-run win in the last game against the Mumbai Indians where they survived a huge scare from Tim David’s fantastic batting display. Meanwhile, Glenn Phillips might join the playing XI in captain Kane Williamson’s absence.

Predicted Playing XI: Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Glenn Phillips, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.

Punjab Kings

Even the Punjab Kings would not be interested in making any chopping and changes for their last game of the season which also happens to be an inconsequential one and would prefer going with the same winning XI. It remains to be seen whether skipper Mayank Agarwal would open the innings this time around or will again bat in the middle-order.

Predicted Playing XI: Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone, Mayank Agarwal (c), Jitesh Sharma (wk), Harpreet Brar, Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh.
