Kane Williamson (148) needs two big hits to complete 150 sixes in T20 cricket.
Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other in the 50th match of IPL 2022, which is played at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. While DC lost both playoff games after topping the group stage list last season, SRH then finished in bottom position. So far in IPL 2022, DC has won four matches and lost five matches, while SRH has won five and lost four matches. Both teams are unbeaten at Brabourne Stadium this season, with DC winning three and SRH winning two games on the ground. The teams will face each other for the first time this season.
Although openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warne came out for single-digit scores in DC’s final game, they’ve done an impressive job overall. Captain Rishabh Pant, despite not scoring 50 this season, has consistently dealt useful blows to the team. The bowling in DC’s final match was very different from usual as Shardul Thakur, who was in miserable form, took all three wickets taken by the DC bowlers. Axar Patel, Mustafizur Rahman and Kuldeep Yadav put in impressive performances for the team with the ball.
The main problem with SRH’s at bat is that Kane Williamson is unable to be consistent or score the runs quickly. Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram and Rahul Tripathi were in good form with the bat. While SRH was consistent with the ball in the first half of the season, they only had one wicket taking bowler in their last two games. The entire bowling unit must be ramped up to return to winning ways.
