    Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings have no chance of making the IPL 2022 Playoffs but will be eager to end their season on a high with a victory when the two sides clash at the Wankhede Stadium.

    Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will both want to end their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season on a high when the two sides meet for their final outing at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Sunday, May 22.
    SRH are currently in seventh position on the IPL 2022 Points Table with 12 points while PBKS have the same number of points but are one spot above them thanks to a much healthier Net Run Rate.
    The last time these two sides met this season, it was SRH who put in a dominant performance to seal a 7-wicket victory. Umran Malik (4/28) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3/22) ripped through the PBKS batting line-up while Liam Livingstone (60 off 33 balls) put up a brave fight to help his team post an average 151/10.
    Aiden Markram (41 not-out off 27 balls) and Nicholas Pooran (35 not-out off 30 balls) then helped seal the win with Rahul Tripathi (34) also contributing with a trademark whirlwind knock.
    SRH come into this game after breaking their five-match losing streak with a hard-fought 3-run victory over Mumbai Indians. Tripathi (76 off 44 balls) played a blinder while Priyam Garg (42 off 26 balls) provided a solid start despite playing his first game this term to help SRH post 193/6.
    Umran Malik (3/23) helped pick up key wickets while Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/26) was at his economical best as SRH snacthed a late-victory despite Tim David (46 off 18 balls) threatening to take things away with a blazing knock.
    Meanwhile, Punjab suffered a 17-run defeat against Delhi Capitals in their last outing which ended their playoff hopes. Livingstone (3/27) and Arshdeep Singh (3/37) did their bit with the ball to help restrict DC to a below-par total of 159/7.
    However, barring Jitesh Sharma (44 off 34 balls), the other PBKS batters failed to deliver, with only four players posting double-digit scores as Punjab limped to just 142/9 in reply.
    Both sides have been knocked out of the race for the playoffs but will be eager to end their season on a high and players will want to impress and lay stake for a spot looking towards next season.
