|Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s LIVE coverage of IPL 2022 Match 50 between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad from the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.|
That’s a convincing win for DC. They move fifth in the points table. SRH are sixth. DC win by 21 runs. An all-round show by DC. Warner and Powell’s pyrotechnics powered DC to a formidable total before the SRH bowlers kept chipping away at SRH, not letting the game get out of their hand at any stage. Nicholas Pooran and Aiden Markram mounted a fightback but it wasn’t enough in the end. That would be all from our side. Thanks.

DC 207/3 in 20 overs: FIFTY for Powell as he tonks Umran over long-off for a huge SIX. Umran cranks up the heat on the shorter ball that flies past Powell’s blade to the keeper. Swatted away and Powell gets another FOUR behind short-third. Width on offer and Powell hammers the ball over extra cover. 157kph! Well, whom do we applaud here? Another 156-plus delivery and Powell crashes it for FOUR once again through cover.
DC 188/3 in 19 overs: Bhuvneshwar fires one down leg as Warner shuffles across a switch-hit and plays a cut late as a right-hander past the inner-ring for FOUR.

DC 135/3 in 14 overs: Abbott drops short and rushes Powell to the pull. The ball clips the top-edge and flies just past a diving Tyagi at short fine-leg. Abbott touches full outside off-stump and Warner pummels the ball past extra cover for FOUR.

Gopal fends a tad short and Pant fires it past point for FOUR. Played on! A low full meant to be hit and Pant gets an inside-edge back to the stumps.

Tyagi replaces Umran
DC 39/2 in 5 overs: Abbott to Marsh. Chipped straight back to the bowler. Excellent deception from Abbott after conceding a boundary through extra cover. He rolls his fingers over and sends in a slower ball that puts Marsh off-guard. Abbott completes a brilliant return catch and Marsh is on his way. Pant in at 4. Streaky! Pant pushes the first ball to Williamson at short cover and sets off on a quick single as Warner responds for the same.

Another short delivery from Umran and Warner pulls it behind short-fine leg for SIX!
Umran Malik replaces Abbott
DC 12/1 in 3 overs: Bhuvneshwar is finding the right angles against the batters at the moment. Warner is squared up with a sharp length that delivery that moves across the pitch to whiff past the outside-edge. Kumar follows up with an in-swinger to the pads and Warner fails to work it away. Bhuvneshwar drops one on the full and Warner pushes the ball mid-on.
DC 11/1 in 2 overs: In the air and Warner gets off the blocks with a streaky drive past the cover fielder for FOUR. Warner gets off strike with a single to mid-off. Short from Abbott and Marsh quickly swivels to pull the ball through square-leg for FOUR.
Sean Abbott from the opposite end
DC 0/1 in 1 over: Bhuvneshwar begins with a gentle out-swinger against Mandeep well outside the off-stump. Ripper from Bhuvi. He tails in one quickly to hit the pads, but the ball is a touch too high. Another in-swinger and Mandeep is having some early concerns against Bhuvneshwar’s swing. Edged and taken. A gentle out-swinger outside the off-stump and Mandeep has a half-hearted poke at it. The ball flies comfortably to Pooran and Sunrisers have struck early. Mitch Marsh in at 3. Wicket-maiden for Bhuvneshwar!

TOSS: SRH wins toss, opts to bowl
Kane Williamson: Our losses have been different, we want to take positives and put a good performance. Marco Jansen misses out along with Washington Sundar and Natarajan. The new players are excited. We have a lot to play for, we need to keep moving forward and execute our plans.
Rishabh Pant: We feel on these tracks, batting or bowling first does not make too big a difference. Prithvi, Axar, Sakariya, and Mustafizur are out. Mandeep, Khaleel, Ripal, and Nortje are in.. Axar was injured, we thought an extra batting all-rounder would add value. We are not going to be hard on ourselves after losses, even with LSG, it could have been different with a boundary here or there.
UPDATE: Prithvi Shaw unavailable for Delhi Capitals.
UPDATE: Sean Abbott, Kartik Tyagi and Shreyas Gopal to debut for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
|PITCH REPORT from Kevin Pietersen: This is such a beautiful stadium, it’s pretty and it has got history. The outfield resembles a carpet, the batters will love playing here, Kuldeep has some success over here because he has slowed down the pace. Chances of dew means the captain winning the toss will opt to field first.|
Pravin Amre, DC assistant coach: This is an important game. We want one of our top-six to go big. The CCI has been a good ground for us, and we hope to win here. We are taking it match-by-match as it is a corollary to the points table standings. Winning our game today will take us to 10 points, it will boast us and will put pressure on the other teams. We have been hot and cold but we have defeated strong teams and hope to do so today.
Nicholas Pooran, SRH keeper: (On West Indies limited-overs captaincy) It’s still sinking in, I’ve been getting a lot of messages. I’ve never thought it’d come true, I just wanted to play for West Indies. I’m thrilled to have gotten it. Staying in the present is my focus here. I hope to lead by example and not repeat mistakes to help the youngsters in the team. Our loss at Wankhede was a last-over loss, in Pune losing Washi and Nattu were issues. Both Washi and Nattu are fine and might feature at some point in the tournament.

DC vs SRH previous match
In the last match between these two sides, Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai, UAE.
When we think of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s campaign at the last IPL, two images could come to the mind. One warmed the heart; the other tugged it a bit.
The sight of an unknown Umran Malik racing up to the wicket and releasing those thunderbolts excited not just the SRH fan, but everyone except those who would have to face him with a bat.
The other image was an SRH team without David Warner inside the stadium. The Aussie opener, who had been at Hyderabad since 2014 and led the franchise to its only title in 2016, was forced to watch his team’s matches in the latter part of the tournament from his hotel room.
Warner has since joined Delhi Capitals. On Thursday night at the Brabourne Stadium here, he will face some familiar faces as Sunrisers takes on Capitals, with both sides looking to bounce back after losing their last matches (to Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants respectively). With the battles for the playoff spots hotting up, SRH is on 10 points and DC eight.
Capitals will want Warner to continue his good run, his opening partner Prithvi Shaw to return to form and skipper Rishabh Pant to explode. It will look to Kuldeep Yadav, who has taken 17 wickets, to spearhead the attack once again.
For SRH, pace has been its ace this season, with Umran and T. Natarajan taking 32 wickets between them. The in-form duo of Abhishek Sharma and Aiden Markram may not mind support from other batters.
