The Sunrisers Hyderabad will play at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on May 1 with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings in Match 46 of IPL 2022. SRH will enter this match after losing five wicket to the Gujarat Titans in their previous match. Meanwhile, the Orange Army hopes to make it two out of two over Chennai, having won them by eight wickets in their reverse match.
The 2016 winners may have gone to GT in a last-ball thriller, but they wouldn’t be happy to make changes to their Playing XI and instead the team management would most likely be interested in taking the same side again. Other than the forgettable final was over, their batting and bowling were spot on.
Here is the predicted playing XI of the Sunrisers Hyderabad for match 46 of IPL 2022:
Openers: Kane Williamson (c) and Abhishek Sharma
Kane Williamson just failed to impress in 22 yards this season. The skipper has amassed 148 runs from eight games to date with an average of 21.14 and an under-performing batting rate of 93.08 with just a lone half-century and his highest individual score was 57. He’s now set to hope to get back into shape as Hyderabad to bolster their play-off hopes.
On the other hand, Abhishek Sharma scored a blistering thump of 65 runs from 42 deliveries with an impressive success rate of nearly 155 in their last game against Gujarat Titans. This knockout allowed Hyderabad to post a stiff total of 195/6, which turned out to be nearly a match-winner.
Middle-Order: Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk) and Shashank Singh
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have a really good middle order and the batters in this position can be expected to play some crucial shots. Rahul Tripathi has blown hot and cold this season. He scored 16 in the last game and now the senior batter would like to come up with an impactful knock in the next game. Aiden Markram played a great supporting knock to Abhishek Sharma and chipped in with a 40-ball 56. The duo were also involved in a 96-run tie for the third wicket.
Caribbean wicketkeeper batter Nicholas Pooran may have failed against Gujarat, but he can be a devastating player in his day and has also ended proceedings a few times this season. Shashank Singh played a crucial battle against the Gujarat Titans. After the loss of Abhishek Sharma, Shashank took responsibility for ending the SRH innings with an unbeaten run of 25 runs from just six pitches.
All-rounder: Washington Sundar
Washington Sundar was off-colored and went wicketless against GT. Nevertheless, the Tamil Nadu all-rounder has four wickets from five matches and scored a further 40 earlier in the season. As well as fooling the best in the business with his breaks in his right arm, Sundar can also move lower in the rankings. play impactful strokes.
Bowlers: Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
Marco Jansen was the most expensive bowler for the former champions in the final match when he went wicketless and allowed 63 runs. More importantly, he was knocked down for 25 runs in the final by the hard hitting duo of Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also went wicketless and would love to be in the wickets column against the Chennai Super Kings.
Umran Malik only grows stronger as the season progresses. He dismantled the main GT batters with his thunderous yorkers and registered his first IPL fifer to finish with numbers of 5/25 which also earned him the Player of the Match award. ‘Yorker King’ T Natarajan was also another consistent performer with the ball in hand and is also on the Purple Cap list with 15 wickets from eight matches.
Here is the Predicted Playing XI from Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (c), Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
