Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad top picks

DC: DC: Prithvi Shaw (259 runs from nine matches) and David Warner (264 runs from seven matches) started the tournament well but have dipped in form in recent matches. Rishabh Pant (234 runs from nine matches) has not been able to tow Delhi Capitals over the line consistently due to a lack of support from the middle order.

In the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav is in prime form and has taken 17 wickets in nine matches at an average of just over 15.82. Khaleel Ahmed has been bowling economically, snapping 11 wickets in six games at an economy of 7.91 but hasn’t had a continuous run.

SRH: Abhishek Sharma (324 runs in nine matches), Aiden Markram (263 runs in seven innings) and Rahul Tripathi (228 runs in nine matches) have scored most of the runs for the 2016 champions while captain Kane Williamson, with 195 runs from nine matches, has played brief knocks but has lacked the punishing strike rate.

In the bowling department, T Natarajan has taken 17 wickets in nine matches while Umran Malik has 15 wickets for show. However, all the SRH bowlers, including T Natarajan and Umran Malik have gone for plenty in the last two matches and have taken just seven wickets in the last 40 overs across two matches.

Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2022 prediction

Delhi Capitals hold the edge as Prithvi Shaw, David Warner and the rest of the batting line-up look well equipped to deal with the pace of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Expect Delhi to come on top in the crucial encounter.
