Sunrisers, Kings look to sign off on a high in dead rubber

Rahul Tripathi and Abhishek Sharma are uncapped and have been spectacular. Umran Malik has been quick, fiery and impactful, albeit a bit costly at instances.

Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada have economic system charges of seven.31 and eight.30 respectively within the demise overs, the first and third-best amongst bowlers in IPL 2022. Shikhar Dhawan has but once more been among the many runs, the seventh successive time the place he has crossed the 400-run mark in a season. Liam Livingstone is among the many top six-hitters this IPL whereas Jitesh Sharma has been a revelation as a finisher.

However on the finish of all of it, each Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings have missed out on qualification for playoffs, even earlier than their final league recreation, because of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s win over Gujarat Titans.

Each groups would look to log off on a excessive, in what’s a useless rubber, one thing that isn’t too ordinary within the IPL.

Kane Williamson has flown back to New Zealand for the delivery of his second baby. Sunrisers have not but introduced their captain for the final recreation, although Bhuvneshwar Kumar has led them prior to now whereas new West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran could possibly be one other candidate

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1 Abhishek Sharma, 2 Priyam Garg, 3 Rahul Tripathi, 4 Aiden Markram, 5 Nicholas Pooran (wk), 6 Glenn Phillips, 7 Washington Sundar, 8 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 9 Fazalhaq Farooqi, 10 Umran Malik, 11 T Natarajan

Punjab Kings: 1 Jonny Bairstow, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Mayank Agarwal (capt), 4 Liam Livingstone, 5 Bhanuka Rajapaksa/Benny Howell, 6 Jitesh Sharma (wk), 7 Harpreet Brar, 8 Rishi Dhawan/Ishan Porel, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Rahul Chahar, 11 Arshdeep Singh

Though Kings are likely to convey Rahul Chahar into the assault a bit later within the innings, there could possibly be a case of him approaching earlier in opposition to Sunrisers given he has dismissed Abhishek twice in two innings and Tripathi twice in 4 conferences. Furthermore, that would imply he wouldn’t be on when Pooran walks out to bat because the left-hander has a strike price of 154 in opposition to the legspinner.

Livingstone has been out to left-arm spin thrice within the six innings he is confronted that sort of bowling. Sunrisers might use Abhishek in opposition to him if they do not get J Suchith in.
