Match Preview

Delhi Capitals will be up against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Match 33 of IPL 2021 on 22 September at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE. In 19 games, the two teams have faced each other, with Hyderabad winning 11 and Delhi winning only eight. In the first phase, Delhi won six of the eight games they played, while Hyderabad only won one of the seven games they played. Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to put the failures of the first round behind them and make a fresh start under captain Kane Williamson’s leadership. In the first half of the season, SRH appeared to be ignorant, as they struggled in every aspect of the game. They would be looking for a different start in the UAE to derail the top-ranked teams’ hopes.

Top 2 Wicket-Keeper picks

1) Rishabh Pant – The left-handed batsman’s skill set and the expertise required by the IPL are completely in tune.  He’s a powerful hitter who can knock a wide range of blows and cross the boundary ropes with ease.

Matches – 124

Runs – 3333

Average – 32.67

2) WP Saha – The right-handed batsman has impressed not just with his wicket keeping abilities but also with his willow. Saha has established himself as the perfect keeper due to his quick reflexes and acrobatic wicket-keeping ability. His athleticism behind the wickets against fast bowlers has benefitted his team.

Matches – 197

Runs – 3454

Average – 25.21

Top 4 Batsman Picks

1) David Warner – In the IPL’s history, David Warner has been the most successful overseas batsman. He is still an important cog in the SRH top gear and an experienced one.

Matches – 304

Runs – 10017

Average – 37.79

2) Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan, a naturally attacking left-handed opener, has been a cornerstone of the Delhi line-up for a long time and forms an invincible top-order. He is strong on the off-side with his cuts and drives, thanks to his side-on stance and minimum trigger movement.

Matches – 295

Runs – 8568

Average – 32.70                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      3) Prithvi Shaw – With a low grip and a very bottom-handed approach to go along with a flamboyant bat-swing, Shaw possesses a god-given prowess at timing the cricket ball. His superb stroke play, deft footwork, and unwavering consistency cemented his spot on the team.

Matches – 60

Runs – 1508

Average – 25.13

4) Kane Williamson – With his excellent batting skills mixing perfectly with his footwork and gritty disposition, Williamson’s batting is a purist’s delight. He is an experienced player and a sheet anchor for his team.

Matches – 206

Runs – 5921

Average – 31.87

Top 4 Bowler Picks

1) Rashid Khan – Rashid is a legbreak googly bowler with a skill set that suits him well in limited-overs cricket. He is not a great turner of the ball, but by bowling fast in the air, he puts batsmen under constant pressure. His main weapon is a very precise googly.

Matches – 277

Wickets – 384

Economy – 6.33

2) Kagiso Rabada – The youthful tearaway pacers including Rabada, are usually the ones who make the news for their ferocious speed and terrifying bounce. He is the closest thing to a ‘ideal mix.’ Rabada has the ability to swing the ball conventionally, but he prefers to use scrambled seam deliveries to make it seam off the wicket.

Matches – 122

Wickets – 165

Economy – 7.89

3) Bhuvneshwar Kumar – Bhuvi can get it to hoop around corners, typically back into the right-hand batsman, but he also gets it to hold its line frequently enough to be a legitimate menace. The lanky swing bowler continued to experiment with his game and was one of the first players in the IPL to make extensive use of the knuckle ball and its numerous varieties.

Matches – 193

Wickets – 201

Economy – 7.15

4) Anrich Nortje – Anrich is a pacer who can be described as a tearaway at the IPL. He is tall, pacy, and always in the sticks, not to mention at a pace that can be unsettling. With his love for bowling yorkers, he is the ideal white ball cricketer.

Matches – 52

Wickets – 62

Economy – 7.56

Top 2 All-rounder Picks

1) Ravichandran Ashwin – Ashwin burst onto the scene with his street-smart exploits in the shorter form of the game in the IPL, opening the bowling at death, and coming on when wickets were required. He is a valuable player from his squad and an important pick for the upcoming match.

Matches – 252

Runs – 758

Average – 13.29

Wickets – 249

Economy – 6.94

2) Kedhar Jadhav – Jadhav is a superb cricketer with a steely drive to succeed in the most difficult of circumstances, his hitting prowess astounded everyone. His off-spin, which is flat and sluggish, might be effective on UAE’s surfaces as well.

Matches – 147

Runs – 2343

Average – 24.15

Wickets – 4

Economy – 8.80
