Punjab Kings are one of the very few franchises who are yet to stamp their authority in terms of winning any title in the history of the Indian Premier League. The closest that they have come in the competition was during the IPL 2014 season. They made it all the way to the finals but surrendered at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders in the epic final showdown.
Punjab Kings were the finalists only once in the Indian Premier League. Apart from that, they have made it to the playoffs once in the inaugural season of the IPL, which is indeed a terrible record as a team. Punjab Kings franchise have finished outside the playoffs 13 times, the most by any team in the history of the Indian Premier League.
On the other side of the coin, Sunrisers Hyderabad were inducted into the IPL in 2013 season. Since then, they have been one of the most consistent teams in the tournament. They have qualified for the playoffs six teams so far, which is well and truly great. In the first season, they announced their arrival in style by qualifying for the playoffs. In the next two seasons, they finished outside the top four spot.
Their best performance was observed in the IPL 2016 edition where they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final to win their maiden IPL trophy. In IPL 2017 season, they made it to the playoffs before finishing IPL 2018 season as the runners-up. SRH qualified for the playoffs in IPL 2019 and 2020 before failing to qualify in IPL 2021 and 2022 respectively.
