SRH vs PBKS, IPL 2024: Punjab Kings will look to end their season on a positive note and salvage pride with a win.

2016 champions Sunrisers Hyderabad will be earnest for a top-2 finish as they play their final league match against bottom-dwellers Punjab Kings in the last doubleheader of the tournament at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday. The Orange Army have already qualified for the knockouts. However, they will look to have two chances of getting to the finals and play one less match if they manage to win their last encounter and also if the Rajasthan Royals lose their final encounter as well.

Pitch Report

The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium has been a bowling-first venue with teams preferring to restrict the batting team to an achievable total. The pitch offers due as the game progresses, making it easier for the batsmen to score runs. Out of the 77 matches played here at this venue, 42 matches have been won by teams batting second. Hence, the teams winning the toss are likely to prefer bowling first at this ground.

SRH will be desperate for a win considering their top-2 chances. The PBKS will have nothing to lose as they have been eliminated from the race but will look to end their campaign on a positive note. However, SRH might have an edge as they’ll play on home-turf and have had a good record at the venue.

As per the Google Win Predictor, SRH have a 60% chance of winning the match
