The Indian Premier League is closed for business and we are in the final group stage match of the season, which will be played between SunRisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings. It’s a pity, as both teams have been knocked out of the playoffs, both teams can only hope to give the fans a good performance and pray for a smooth next season. shall. The match, scheduled to take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, will be the 70th of the 74-match tournament and the teams will finally say goodbye to Mumbai after their final few months on the West Coast. of the country.
What is at stake?
Punjab Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad entered the auction with very different philosophies. While, Punjab has revamped their entire structure with elite representatives, SunRisers have changed their identity from a top heavyweight power to a middle power. SRH has given up their trusted lieutenants in the auctions, putting up for sale David Warner, Rashid Khan and Jonny Bairstow, in hopes of building a new generation of heroes.
For Punjab, the fight is about identity. Does the extremely aggressive approach work in modern T20 gaming? Or should they just take a step back as conventional logic dictates.
For SRH, the debate is whether they should leave Kane Williamson and hand the reins to a younger and more dynamic player, or go back to the old ways that have given them consistency.

Nicholas Pooran (SRH): Before their last match, Pooran said he could win SRH a few more games but ran out of mates. Pooran was recently named West Indies white-ball captain and a statement like that clearly shows his ambition. He must play in his final game for SRH if he wants to one day take over from Kane Williamson.
Kagiso Rabada (PBKS): Kagiso Rabada’s revival as a powerhouse pitcher has been a lovely watch. He’s the third-most catcher in the IPL with 22 catches and will end the season on a high.
