Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings Key Players Battle Preview:

SRH vs PBKS Key Players Battle: Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings have been sporadically brilliant this season. But the failure to seize the key moments has cost them a spot in the playoffs. These teams who have shown a lot of promise in patches will be a force to reckon with next season. They will be eager to test their bench strength in their last league game.

We Look At The SRH vs PBKS Key Players Battle In This Game:

#1 Rahul Tripathi vs Rahul Chahar

It will be the battle of Rahul’s in this game. One is on the cusp of an India call while the other is eyeing a recall. Rahul Tripathi in all fairness has been the best number 3 this season. He looks at ease against both pace and spin. Tripathi has been instrumental in SRH’s important wins this season. He will look to cap off the season on a high.

Tripathi will be up against his namesake, Rahul Chahar in this game. Chahar himself admittedly would have liked more wickets this season. He too will be eager to put one big performance in the last game. It will be a great middle-overs battle.

#2 Aiden Markram vs Kagiso Rabada

He has had a fairly decent season this year with the Sunrisers. Aiden Markram has shepherded SRH’s middle-order brilliantly. His game against pace was never in doubt. But it has been his improved showing against spin that has grabbed attention. Markram will be keen to sign off on a high. He will be up against his fellow countrymen, Kagiso Rabada. The pacer has been breathing fire in the last few games. It will be a top battle.

#3 Jonny Bairstow vs Umran Malik

It has been a season of great evolution for Umran Malik. He picked up his maiden fiver in the game against the Gujarat Titans. But he then went wicketless in his next three games. He conceded 125 runs in 10 overs. Malik bounced back to put up a defining performance against the Mumbai Indians. He will look to put in one big performance in the last league game.

Malik will be up against Jonny Bairstow. The PBKS opener has really come into his own in the last few games. He will be looking to make it count in the last game. Bairstow is someone who loves taking on pace. It will be a great contest.

#4 Liam Livingstone vs Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Punjab’s most expensive purchase in the auction, Liam Livingstone has repaid the faith beautifully. He has been destructive across all phases of the game. Livingstone has lit up IPL 2022 with his fireworks. He smashed the longest six (117 meters) so far this season.

Livingstone will be eager to extend the purple patch in his side’s last game too. He won’t be having it easy against Bhuvneshwar Kumar though. Kumar bowled one of the overs of the tournament in the last game. His maiden-wicket 19th over stunned the cricketing world. He will be an able matchup to Livingstone’s pyrotechnics.
