Almost overwhelmed with a play-off spot, the bottom group Sunrisers Hyderabad will try to play party freaks when they face the equally fighting Punjab Kings in the battle of the IPL’s stragglers on Saturday. Sunrisers suffered their seventh loss on Wednesday after being blown away by Delhi Capitals.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson (c), Kedar Jadhav, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
Punjab kings: KL Rahul (c) (wk), Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, Deepak Hooda, Fabian Allen, Ishan Porel, Harpreet Brar, Mohammed Shami, Adil Rashid, Arshdeep Singh
Punjab, on the other hand, has inexplicably found a way to snag the Rajasthan Royals defeat from the Rajasthan Royals and is desperate for an answer to their problems after finishing seventh with six points out of nine games. The Kings were well placed to win their first IPL game of the UAE leg before beating Harakari in Kartik Tyagi’s final over. They lost two wickets and only scored one run while it took them four to win against Rajasthan. Their players have also gone through many changes, which has drawn sharp criticism from former team mentor Virender Sehwag. In batting, Rahul and Mayank Agarwal were one of the most dominant opening duos of the IPL.
