IPL 2021, Match 33, DC vs SRH: Delhi Capitals will lock horns with SunRisers Hyderabad in the Match 33 of the IPL 2021 today at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
As far as performances are considered Delhi Capitals are stronger than SunRisers Hyderabad. Both the teams lie at opposite ends of the IPL 2021 Points Table. Delhi Capitals is in second place with six victories from eight matches being played. They are behind CSK in terms of Net Run Rate. Delhi capitals registered a seven-wicket win over Punjab Kings in their last clash.
On the other hand, SRH is languishing at the bottom of the Points Table with just one win from seven matches being played. In their last clash against Rajasthan Royals, they suffered a miserable 55 runs defeat. SRH also suffered a major setback with their star pacer T Natarajan has tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday morning & thus has been put into isolation along with six close contacts. Today’s match will go ahead as per the schedule as the rest of the squad has tested negative for COVID-19.
Meanwhile, the SRH team after facing continuous defeats in the first leg of the IPL 2021, SRH management decided to hand over the captaincy reins from David Warner to New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson. However, it’s worth noting whether this major change in leadership would raise SRH’s performance in the second leg of the IPL 2021.
Meanwhile, there is good news for the Delhi Capitals franchise as its star player Shreyas Iyer will feature in the second leg of the IPL 2021 but Rishabh Pant will continue to captain the DC franchise. A couple of players of both teams have pulled out of the second leg of the IPL 2021. Jonny Bairstow has pulled out of the second leg of the IPL 2021 & the franchise has signed Sherfane Rutherford as his replacement. While Siddharth and Chris Woakes will be absent for the Capitals with Kulwant Khejroliya and Ben Dwarshuis replacing them.
The last time when these two teams met in a face-off the fans got to witness an enticing super over the contest. Fans will be hoping for a similar enthralling contest in today’s clash also. Delhi Capitals would be eyeing to continue their winning momentum by clinching today’s clash while it’s a must-win contest for Sunrisers Hyderabad. If SRH wants to keep their playoff hopes alive then they have to win every match of the second leg of the IPL 2021.
Date: September 22, 2021 (Wednesday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
It would be another warm evening in Dubai with an average temperature of 35 degrees Celsius. The humidity levels should once again be pretty high creating problems for players on the field.
The wicket at the Dubai International Stadium looked good in yesterday’s PBKS vs RR clash with something to offer for the bowlers as well. Considering the quality of both the team’s bowling attacks we are unlikely to witness a high-scoring match. A total of 160-165 score would be competitive on this pitch.
Predicted XI: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (C/WK), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Avesh Khan/ Ishant Sharma
Predicted XI: Wriddhiman Saha (WK), David Warner, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson(C), Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Mohammad Nabi/ Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, and Sandeep Sharma.
The Delhi Capitals squad looks more competent & stronger than SunRisers Hyderabad as evident from their performances in the first phase of the IPL 2021. While Kane Williamson & Co will surely give them a tough competition, Delhi capitals should win the match & move to the top of the Points Table.
Prediction: Delhi Capitals to win.
