Sunrisers Hyderabad v Punjab Kings

When: Sunday May 22, 1500
Where: Wankhede
How to watch: Sky Sports Cricket

For the second day running, Wankhede plays host to IPL action and it will be fascinating to see if the same strip as Saturday is used again, or a fresh pitch is unveiled for the regular season finale.

Should both teams be asked to play on a used pitch, betting low runs could be the way to go, especially considering how Sunrisers have struggled to find consistency with the bat this term.

The Kings haven't always been bombproof either, with their all-out-attack approach meaning their batting can vary from the sublime to the ridiculous. Playing the extreme unders to small stakes might a worthwhile plan if conditions allow.

I'll be holding fire until the toss and clearer details of the pitch emerge, but I'll once again make the case for SEAN ABBOTT in the top Sunrisers batsman market at 50/1.

The Australian seems unlikely to get a game having only played once all season, but Sunrisers are missing a trick by not including a man who has been central to the success enjoyed by Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash.

A bowling all-rounder, Abbott can really bat and made handy contributions for Australia in the recent ODI series against Pakistan, suggesting he can make his mark from number seven if Sunrisers' inconsistent top order fails to fire on Sunday.

At 50/1, he's worth chancing.
