Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and elected to bat first against Punjab Kings in the 70th match of the 15th season of the Indian Premier League in Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Both teams have been eliminated from the IPL 2022 and have no chance of making it to the playoffs.
SRH, who defeated the Mumbai Indians by three runs in their previous game, have opted for two changes in their playing 11.
"We will bat first. Same wicket as the last game, so could be a bit sticky going into the second innings. Two changes for us, Romario Shephard and Jagadeesha Suchith are in. We would love to win this match and go up a bit in the points table. It looks like a slow surface and we're backing ourselves to defend a score," SRH skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar said after winning the toss.
The Punjab Kings, on the other hand, have made three changes.
"We have made three changes, Nathan Ellis replaces Bhanu, Shahrukh and Prerak Mankad are in, replacing Rahul Chahar and Rishi Dhawan. We don't want to make changes to the structure of the team, just giving chances to everyone. Every game is important and we're looking forward to the two points. We are bowling first, so we'll know what target we'll be chasing tonight," Punjab skipper Mayank Agarwal said.
