Last league match of IPL 2022 will be played between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both teams are out of playoff contentions and have won 6 matches out of 13 played so far.
They will not be part of playoffs this season but they have so many things to look forward to next season. Uncapped players like Rahul Tripathi and Abhishek Sharma has been in great form in this IPL. Rahul Tripathi has scored 396 runs in 13 innings with an outstanding average of 39.30 and with a strike rate of 161.73. He might be considered for T20 world cup later this year in Australia. Aiden Markram also justified his inclusion in the team and has been in brilliant form.
Umran Malik’s pace was talk of the town, he has been expensive at times but has taken crucial wickets and will improve with time. Priyam Garg scored an excellent half century in the last match. Nicholas Pooran came in to the form after initial failures. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been economical as ever. Kane Williamson has reached home and will not be part of the last league match for SRH . His performance has been disappointing.
Punjab Kings have played some good cricket in IPL 2022. They were a bit inconsistent and that is why they are in this position. Shikhar Dhawan has scored more than 400 runs for the 7th time in his IPL career. Bhanuka Rajapaksa
Liam Livingstone has been a revelation with bat and ball this season. Captain Mayank Agarwal did not live up to the expectation this season as for as his batting is concerned. Arshdeep Singh has been bowling with economy rate of 7.31 at the death. They have managed to build a core this season and hopefully will put on a show next season.
