Delhi Capitals are in seventh place in the points table with four wins in nine games, and Sunrisers Hyderabad are in fourth place with five wins in nine games. SRH have lost their past two games, and DC has lost a close match against LSG.
DC struggled with both the bat and the ball, and their top scorer, David Warner, scored 264 runs. He is the 16th highest run-scorer in IPL 2022. Skipper Rishabh Pant scored only 234 runs, but he is a crucial batsman in the middle order. Rovman Powell played a few cameos, and wasn’t consistent with the bat.
The Delhi-based franchise has so far scored 493 runs in the power play, which is more than any team with a more than 9 run rate. However, they struggled in the middle overs and scored only 592 runs at a 7.7 run rate. Only the Mumbai Indians scored fewer runs than DC in this phase.
Also, their bowling has been a concern. They’ve only taken 11 wickets in the power play, the lowest by any team, showing that they’re struggling to take wickets in the powerplay. Shardul Thakur has seven wickets, while Axar Patel has four. To win matches, other bowlers should support Kuldeep Yadav in his bowling.
SRH won 5 consecutive matches after losing the first two matches, and after that, they lost 2 matches. Kane Williamson isn’t able to play aggressive cricket in the powerplay. Nicholas Pooran hadn’t performed well before the last match, scoring 64 off 33 against CSK.
SRH’s T Natarajan and Umran Malik are consistently picking wickets for them. The left-arm pacer is the purple cap, rare with 17 wickets. Umran Malik picked up 15 wickets. SRH coach confirms Washington Sundar is injured again while fielding in the CSK game. This will once again challenges the team balance.
