Hyderabad, May 18: Regular skipper Shikhar Dhawan has been sidelined with an injury. Stand-in-skipper Sam Curran has returned to England for national duty.

In such a tricky situation, the captainship of Punjab Kings team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, would be handled by keeper Jitesh Sharma in their final match of the season on Sunday.

He might not have dazzled as per expectations in this IPL season, but Jitesh would be bestowed with the leadership role in Punjab Kings' final game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), set to take place at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday.

Jitesh will take charge from Curran, who has returned to England for international duty. Curran was named in England’s five-match T20 series squad against Pakistan and will join the team for the first T2OI, scheduled on May 22 at Leeds.

Kings are already eliminated from the race to the playoffs and are currently positioned at the ninth position of the points table. PBKS have only won five matches out of 13 games and will look to end their campaign on a big note. 

Their opponents SRH are already in the playoffs and are sitting pretty comfortably at the second spot in the points table. (With IANS support)
