SunRisers Hyderabad takes on Punjab Kings in Match 70 of IPL 2022 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Both teams will aim to finish the season on a high as they already race out of the playoffs. SRH defeated Mumbai Indians in their previous match while Punjab Kings lost to the playoff aspirants Delhi Capitals. Kane Williamson has left SRH’s bio-bubble and will not be seen in the final game of the season. As a result, SRH will be forced to make a change to their playing XI.
Here’s how SRH might line up against PBKS:
Abhishek Sharma: The youngster has been in good form this season, but was rejected with a score of nine in the previous match. He will look forward to ending the season on a high.
Priyam Garg: The young batter made his first appearance in the previous game hitting 42 from just 26 balls. He will try to play a similar knock in the final game of the season.
Rahul Tripathi: The batter has been in excellent form for SRH this season, scoring 393 runs in 13 games, an average of just over 39. He will aim to finish the season with the same momentum.
Nicholas Pooran: The wicketkeeper batter has been a brilliant asset to SRH this season. He scored 301 runs at an average of 43.
Aiden Markram: The form of the South African batter was one of the positives for SRH this season. Markram scored 360 runs in 13 games, averaging 51.43.
Washington Sundar: The all-rounder started the season at a high level, but an injury has hampered his progress. He is another player who would like to finish the season with a strong performance.
Sean Abbott: The Australian all-rounder has only played one game so far this season. He will likely play in the final game, replacing Williamson.
Fazalhaq Farooqi: The pace on the left arm was expensive in the two games he played this season. With SRH already out of the playoffs, Farooqi is likely to keep his place in the team.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: The experienced pacer has been very frugal this season, taking 12 wickets in 13 against 7.2 RPO. He will try to finish the campaign with another solid performance.
T Natarajan: It was an off day at the office for T Natarajan. In addition to failing to pick a wicket, Nataraja was caught for 60 runs from his quota of four overs.
Umran Malik: The young speedster has shown that he can regularly bowl over 150 km/h and has taken 21 wickets in 13 matches this season.
