The clash between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will be held at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai from 7:30 pm today. Talking about Sunrisers, after losing the first two matches, they won five matches in a row and now have lost two matches again. Umran Malik is constantly wreaking havoc on the pace, but he has been insufficient to take the team to victory.
Delhi Capitals has been able to win only 4 matches after playing 9 matches. In such a situation, both the teams will have to perform better in today’s match to reach the play-offs. David Warner and Prithvi Shaw are seen in fine touch. If Delhi’s opening pair clicks, they can register their fifth win of the season.
We have seen a good batting track in Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. RCB had scored 170 runs against the GT and Gujarat had easily chased these runs in the last match played on this ground of this season. There is some assistance for bowlers also in the initial period of innings.
Most of the strips are of Red soil, which gives good bounce and pace to bat on. We can’t forget whole IPL is going to play in only 4 venues so there will be some assistance to spin too in the mid-period of the tournament.
Mumbai is located in the western state of Maharashtra. The weather in Mumbai remains hot and humid during the summers that spanning from March to May. The weather model indicates a good forecast for the game of cricket on the 5th of May 2022.
Temperature – 34/28
Humidity – 58%
Wind – 18 km/h
Chances of Rain – 0%
Both teams have played 20 matches against each other in the IPL so far. SRH is leading the head-to-head competition with 11 wins. Delhi has won 9 matches out of 20.
It is like a trend in IPL 2022, the players against their previous franchise performing very well. We can expect a tremendous performance from David Warner against his previous team SRH. Hyderabad has not only removed him from captaincy but from the team too.
