Match Preview

Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Punjab Kings in their next match on May 22th at Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday. Both clubs are out of postseason contention, but they will be hoping to finish the season on a high note. The Orange Army defeated the Mumbai Indians in a tense game, but they will be without captain Kane Williamson, who has gone to New Zealand to give birth to his kid. Glenn Phillips is anticipated to take his position in the starting lineup.

Punjab Kings, on the other hand, have had a hit-or-miss season and a victory today may propel them to sixth place in the points standings. Mayank Agarwal has battled for runs in particular, and falling to the middle order hasn’t helped matters. His leadership has been amazing at times, but there is also a case to be made for his performance. In lieu of struggling Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Shahrukh Khan can get a chance in the last game.

Pitch and Weather Report
