Delhi Capitals will face Kane Williamson’s Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 50 of Indian Premier League 2022.

The match will be held at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on 5th May.

Current form

In their last IPL match, Delhi suffered a six-run defeat against Lucknow Super Giants, in a thriller.

Batting first, Lucknow made a total of 195 runs for 3 wickets in 20 overs.

In reply, Delhi could manage to reach a total of 189/7 in 20 overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad were on a five-match winning spree, but CSK put a halt to their streak.

Led by Ruturaj Gaikwad, CSK shred the pace battery of SRH and made them eat humble pie.

The only bright spots were captain Kane Williamson who hit 47 runs from 37 balls.

T.Natarajan was also impressive as he picked up another two wickets in the last game.

SRH will be eager to get back to winning ways against DC.

Head to Head record

Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad have played each other 20 times.

Delhi Capitals have emerged victorious in 9 games.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have won 11 games.

In the last 5 matches between DC and SRH, Delhi Capitals have won 3 matches.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have managed to win 2.

Delhi Capitals Likely Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya

Sunrisers Hyderabad Likely Playing 11

Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan

Players expected to shine

Kuldeep Yadav of Delhi Capitals is the second highest wicket-taker in IPL 2022 with 17 wickets from 9 games. He is in excellent form and is picking up wickets in every match.

Abhishek Sharma of SRH has been in prolific form this season firing the SunRisers Hyderabad to great starts in the powerplay.

He has scored 324 runs in his 9 games at an average of 36.

With scores of 39, 47 and 65 in his previous three games, he is looking in great touch and could repeat his batting exploits.

Mitchell Marsh hit three sixes for Delhi Capitals in his last appearance. He is a clean striker of the ball and can be the X factor for the Delhi side.

T Natarajan has evolved into a remarkable death ball specialist. He also enjoys the skipper’s confidence and perfectly complements Umran Malik’s pace. He is expected to be a star performer for SRH.

The Dave Warner factor

Warner was part of the victorious Australian team that won the last T20 World Cup.

Since that tournament where he was the leading run-getter, his T20 form has been sensational.

In IPL 2022, he has struck three half-centuries in the tournament and is averaging 44.00 from seven innings.

Moreover, he was sacked from captaincy by SRH in last year’s IPL and will be keen to prove a point to his former employers.

Who will win

The Delhi Capitals are sixth in the table with 4 wins and 5 defeats in their 9 games played so far.

On the other hand, the SunRisers Hyderabad lie fourth in the table with 5 wins and 4 defeats from their nine games.

So it’s a must win game for both.

SRH looks like a more well-settled team with the right blend of experience and youth.

Also, Kane Williamson has displayed better captaincy than Rishabh Pant, in the crunch moments.

Hence our prediction is that SRH will win.
