SRH vs PBKS, Wankhede Stadium. Both the teams are out of the playoff equations. Sunrisers Hyderabad will be playing without Kane Williamson. Bhuvi is likely to lead the SRH team for this game, but Nicholas Pooran is also an option. Punjab Kings have been mostly misfired with their batting and bowling in the IPL 2022. Both the teams look unbalanced on paper, but SRH has a very poor winning percentage at Wankhede.

Rahul Tripathi and Umran Malik are the only good thing SRH has gained this season. The team management pushing Kane Williamson to open the batting was a terrible strategy. Now that he is out of the tournament, fans fear that his fate will be similar to David Warner. In other words, we will not see Kane Williamson in the orange jersey again.

If we compare the two probable teams of SRH and PBKS, the latter looks stronger. The reason is good venue stats and good head-to-head matchups.

Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh have performed very economically in the death overs. PBKS is one of the teams with the fewest sixes conceded in the last four overs. In contrast, SRH has hit the lowest sixes in the same slot of overs.

At Wankhede Stadium:

SRH has managed to win only one game at Wankhede out of nine! Both the teams have lost more games than they won at this venue, but PBKS has better experience winning the games at Wankhede.
