SRH VS PBKS PLAYING XI
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Romario Shepherd, Washington Sundar, Jagadeesha Suchith, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (c), Fazalhaq Farooqi, Umran Malik.
Punjab Kings: Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Mayank Agarwal (c), Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Harpreet Brar, Nathan Ellis, Prerak Mankad, Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh.
TOSS: Sunrisers Hyderabad wins the toss and elects to bat. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead SRH in the absence of Kane Williamson – who has travelled back to New Zealand for the birth of his second child. Two changes for the Orange Army, with Romario Shepherd and Jagadeesha Suchith replacing Kane Williamson and T Natarajan. Punjab Kings has three changes – Nathan Ellis, Shahrukh Khan and Prerak Mankad come in for Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Rahul Chahar and Rishi Dhawan.
Prerak Mankad will make his IPL debut today for Punjab Kings. Meanwhile, Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh, who go against each other today, have received their maiden India call-ups for the T20I series against South Africa.
Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will engage in a dead rubber at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday. With both teams out of contention for IPL playoff spots, there is nothing more than pride at stake in this final group stage encounter of the season.
Punjab (12 points) could have stayed in contention if not for a 17-run loss to Delhi Capitals in its previous outing. Mayank Agarwal and his men made heavy weather of a modest 160-run target set by DC, and exited the tournament. Mayank and head coach Anil Kumble will face tough questions on why the unit failed to make the cut despite possessing genuine match-winners like Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Kagiso Rabada and others.
After a promising start to the campaign, it all went pear shaped for SRH in the latter stages. SRH lost five of its last six matches to undo all the good work put in. A close three-run win over Mumbai Indians on Tuesday proved to be too little too late.
