IPL 2022 – The BEST Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI to face the Delhi Capitals

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will face the formidable Delhi Capitals (DC) in their upcoming Indian Premier League group round match (IPL). On May 5, the game will take place at Brabourne Stadium. It should be noted that both sides are coming into the game after losing their previous matches.

While SRH was defeated by the defending champions, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the Capitals were defeated by the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in a close match by six runs. In terms of SRH, the Orange Army will likely deploy the same playing XI that defeated CSK by a score of 13 runs in their previous match.

In this article, we are going to talk about the BEST Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI to face the Delhi Capitals.

Kane Williamson, the captain of the South African cricket team, has not been at his best so far. However, he scored 47 runs against the defending champions CSK in the preceding encounter. In terms of IPL 2022 statistics, the right-handed hitter has 195 runs from nine matches and only one half-century to his name.

In his previous match against CSK, batsman Abhishek Sharma also hit a good-looking knock of 39 runs off 24 deliveries with an amazing strike rate of 162.5. However, the left-handed batter was unable to continue to produce a large score. He’ll want to be more efficient in his upcoming match versus DC.

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s middle order has been performing admirably for the club. With the exception of the most recent encounter, in which Rahul Tripathi was out on the first ball, the hitter has played some solid innings for his club. Similarly, South African hitter Aiden Markram has been constantly scoring runs. In the previous game, the right-handed batter scored 17 runs.

Nicholas Pooran, a left-handed batter, smashed 64 runs against the defending champions and nearly won the game for his team. He’d like to keep his good form going against the Delhi Capitals. Shashank Singh delivered a crucial knock against the Gujarat Titans, scoring an unbeaten 25 runs off six deliveries. In his previous game against CSK, he scored 15 runs.

Washington Sundar comes in as the lone all-rounder

Washington Sundar, the tournament’s All-Rounder, hasn’t been at his best so far. The right-arm spinner has four wickets in six outings and struck a blazing 40 earlier in the campaign. However, he was unable to do much in the previous encounter against CSK and will aim to demonstrate his all-around talent to assist his team win against the Capitals.

Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, and T Natarajan form the bowling attack

SRH’s bowlers surrendered 202 runs in their previous match against the Yellow Army. With the exception of senior bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who gave up just 22 runs in four overs, all other pacers let up lots of runs while bowling. T Natarajan was the Orange Army’s lone successful bowler, taking both wickets that fell during CSK’s innings.

Umran Malik made headlines last week after delivering a 154km/h delivery against the defending champs. Despite being battered by CSK hitters, his bowling numbers in four overs were 0/48. In the next encounter, the express pacer will attempt to make a big recovery. Meanwhile, Marco Jansen has not been able to replicate his great performance against the Red Army.
