Mumbai. The team of Sunrisers Hyderabad, who made a strong comeback in the Indian Premier League 2022, will face Punjab Kings today. This match between the two teams will be played in the afternoon at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. By winning this match, the intention of Punjab Kings will be to reach the top-4. At the same time, the team of Sunrisers will also try to improve their net run rate. In IPL 2022, both the teams have played 5-5 matches in which they have won 3-3 matches. Let us tell you about the probable playing XI of the match played between the two teams.
Sunrisers Hyderabad had a poor start in the 15th season of IPL and had to face defeat in two consecutive matches. But after that the team made a great comeback, putting a hat-trick of victory. Rahul Tripathi and Aidan Markram contributed the most in bringing Sunrisers on the winning track. If Kane Williamson is also included in the line of these batsmen, then this time Hyderabad will be going to see the performance of IPL.
Good performance expected from Smith-Bairstow
On the other hand, the team of Punjab Kings has also recovered from the humiliating defeat against Gujarat Titans. In their last match, Punjab defeated Mumbai Indians by 12 runs. Captain Mayank Agarwal will not reshuffle the team and is expected to take the field with the previous playing XI. Their overseas players Odeon Smith and Jonny Bairstow need to perform consistently.
Punjab Kings strong in batting
If the batting of Punjab Kings is seen, then there is a lot of depth in it. Whereas Sunrisers’ team is dependent on its top five batsmen. With the injured Washington Sundar out, the team will miss a solid all-rounder. It has to be seen which team will dominate the bowlers during the power play.
Probable Playing XI of Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Shah Rukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma, Odeon Smith, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Varun Arora, Arshdeep Singh
Sunrisers Hyderabad Probable Playing XI: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aidan Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Shashank Singh, J Suchit, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Janssen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
