Match 50 of the 2022 TATA Indian Premier League brings us live action from the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai for the clash between the Delhi Capitals and the SunRisers Hyderabad.

The Delhi Capitals lie sixth in the table with 4 wins and 5 defeats in their 9 games played so far. They are coming on the back of a narrow defeat against the Lucknow Super Giants by 5 runs. LSG managed to score 195 runs on board courtesy of a KL Rahul knock of 77 runs. The Delhi openers, Prithvi Shaw and David Warner, failed to score runs with just 8 runs between them which proved to be costly in their run chase making them fall short of the LSG total by 6 runs. The Capitals will be filled with hunger to pick up the two points as we are nearing the latter half of the season and in order to pick up a place in the playoffs they need to win games and avoid slip ups. However, they know their opposition will not be an easy giant to defeat and they have to be at their very best that evening. 

On the other hand, the SunRisers Hyderabad lie fourth in the table with 5 wins and 4 defeats from their nine games. SRH were on a five game unbeaten run however, they have found themselves on the other end of line losing two back to back games aains the Gujarat Titans and the Chennai Super Kings respectively. It was not a good day at the office for the SRH bowlers in their previous outing as the CSK put up a daunting total of 202 runs for just 2 wickets in their 20 overs. SRH responded well in their chase however fell short by 13 runs which cost them their two points. They will be looking to keep this defeat behind and correct their errors in order to gain nothing less than two points in their game against the Delhi Capitals which will get them back on track for a place in the playoffs.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Brabourne stadium is one that the batsmen love to bat upon and play some fine strokes. The previous game played at the venue between the RCB and the GT witnessed a high scoring game of 171 runs put up on board by the RCB which was chased down by the GT in 19.3 overs winning the game by 6 wickets. However with dew coming into play, we expect the team winning the toss to bowl first and be comfortable chasing the game.

Batter to watch out forAbhishek Sharma

Abhishek Sharma has been in prolific form this season and has been firing the SunRisers to great starts in the Powerplay, having scored 324 runs in his nine games at an Average of 36. With scores of 39 (24), 47 (28) and 65 (42) in his previous three games, he will be looking forward to scoring another blistering knock and guide his team to a huge total on a pitch that supports the batters.

Bowler to watch out forKuldeep Yadav

As things stand, Kuldeep Yadav will surely be looking to win the Purple Cap come the end of the season. He has picked up 17 wickets in his nine games and is just two wickets behind his fellow countryman Yuzvendra Chahal, who is at 19 wickets from his ten games. Yadav is in great form and will also be fancying chances to earn a call-up to the Indian national team in order to cement his place in the T20I squad for the upcoming T20I World Cup. 

DC vs SRH – Fantasy XI

Rishabh Pant, Nicholas Pooran, David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Abhishek Sharma (vc), Kane Williamson, Axar Patel, T Natarajan, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur

DC vs SRH – Match Prediction

The Delhi Capitals will be filled with intent and hunger, while the SunRisers Hyderabad will be looking to bounce back from the narrow defeat they suffered at the hands of the Chennai Super Kings in their previous encounter. Considering the past record between the two teams and the form they are in, I predict the SunRisers to bounce back and get back to winning ways.
