Sunrisers Hyderabad will go head to head against Punjab Kings in the 70th and last league game of IPL 2022 on 22nd May (Sunday) at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Both teams are out of the playoffs contention, so the match turns out to be a potential dead rubber. Sunrisers at one stage were in pole position to make it to the playoffs, but a wretched run of 5 losses on the trot saw their chances dwindle. Although, the orange army would hope to finish off the season on a good note with a win.
SRH - Umran Malik [727 points], Rahul Tripathi [638 points]
PBKS - Liam Livingstone [793 points], Kagiso Rabada [697 points]
SRH - Glenn Phillips [0 points], Fazal Haq [6 points]
PBKS - Harpreet Brar [84 points], Rishi Dhawan [253 points]
The pitch of Wankhede Stadium is considered good for the batsmen. Here the ball hits the bat well and the batsmen take full advantage of it. Also, due to the small boundaries in this ground, the batsmen also get additional advantages. At the same time, bowlers also get a lot of help on this red clay pitch. This pitch provides a good bounce to the bowlers. Due to which the batsmen dodge.
However, due to the small boundary, even the biggest total on this ground seems small. Defending the total in Wankhede is not easy at all. Also, the statistics also say that the team chasing the target gets more success in Wankhede. Therefore, in the Hyderabad and Punjab match (SRH vs PBKS), whichever team wins the toss can bowl first.
