Both teams, Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are looking for a win and this match is going to be very important. The points table is changing after the result of every match and things are changing dramatically. Delhi had played a total of nine matches with just four wins. They have lost five matches and are holding the seventh spot on the table. On the other hand, SRH has been better than DC in IPL 2022 and also has a good run rate when we compare it with Delhi. Hyderabad had also played nine matches with five wins to their name. They have lost four matches and are holding the fourth position on the table. SRH is in the top-four positions and another win in this match will cement their place in playoff positions.
DELHI CAPITALS REVIEWS
The most recent match of DC was very interesting against LSG which they lost and now they have lost two matches in a row. They made some bad decisions in the batting inning. The bowling department of Delhi is strong and experienced but they were not good in the previous two matches. Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Shardul Thakur, and Kuldeep Yadav are leading the bowling department of DC. We don’t think that the performance of the above-mentioned bowlers was good in the most recent match against Lucknow. They leaked 195 runs in 20 overs. Thakur was the only most successful bowler in the previous match with three wickets to his name in four overs against 40 runs. No other bowler from the side of DC could manage to pick any wicket. Kuldeep Yadav, Lalit Yadav. Axar Patel, Chetan Sakariya, and Mustafizur Rahman were the bowlers who could not pick any wicket.
Kuldeep Yadav had played a major role in every match that DC had won. We can’t ignore his importance in the squad of Delhi. Axar Patel is the other bowler who had been good in the previous matches. We think that Khaleel Ahmed will get a chance to play this match as he was left after giving the best performance. The batting order of DC had been good in almost all previously played matches. They also performed well in the previous match and scored 189 runs while chasing the target of 196 runs. Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, and Axar Patel are leading the batting order of Delhi. Rishabh Pant was the highest run-scorer in the previous match with 44 runs to his name on 30 balls with the help of seven boundaries and one huge six. Axar Patel was the other batter who was just superb with the bat and scored 42 runs on 24 balls and smashed one boundary and three huge sixes during his inning. He remained not out till the chase of the target. Rovman Powell is back in good form and this is good news for Delhi.
SUNRISERS HYDERABAD REVIEWS
SRH is a team that lost two opening matches but won the next five matches in a row. Now they had once again lost two next matches in a row. Another win in this match will boost the place of Hyderabad on the table. Hyderabad lost its most recent match against CSK. The bowling department of SRH had lost momentum in the last two matches and they leaked more than two hundred runs in 20 overs. Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Markram, Umran Malik, and Shashank Singh are the star bowlers of Hyderabad. Umran Malik had been good with the pace and speed but had failed to pick early wickets even though he leaked 48 runs in four overs in the previous match. Remember that he is the highest wicket-taker from the side of SRH. T Natarajan was the only bowler who had two wickets to his name in the previous match against Chennai while no other bowler could manage to pick any wicket. Bhuveneshwar Kumar is the other bowler who is struggling in IPL 2022. The big problem of SRH is the spin bowling department as Washington Sundar is injured and they will choose one bowler from Shreyas Gopal or Jagadeesh Suchith who is a left-arm spinner.
The batting department of SRH is strong and is also in good form. The role of the batting order of SRH will be very important in this match. Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson are opening the batting innings for Hyderabad and these both bowlers have provided a good start in almost every match of IPL 2022. Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, and Shashank Singh are handling the middle and lower batting order of SRH. They were good in the most recent match against CSK where they scored 189 runs while chasing the target of 203 runs. Nicholas Pooran was the most successful batter who remained not out after scoring 64 runs on 33 balls with the help of three boundaries and six huge sixes. Kane Williamson also had an outstanding performance with the bat and scored 47 runs on 37 balls. He smashed two boundaries and the same huge sixes. Abhishek Sharma also performed well and scored 39 runs. Rahul Tripathi failed to open the account on the scoreboard.
