Both DC and SRH have not lost a single game at the Brabourne this season.
Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other in the 50th match of IPL 2022 on Thursday at the Brabourne Stadium. DC have won 4 out of 9 matches and are placed in the 7th position with 8 points. A win in this match will help them jump to the 4th position. They lost the previous match against Lucknow Super Giants by a mere margin of 6 runs after failing to chase a target of 196 runs. Both the openers were dismissed for a single-digit score in that match and DC would be hoping for a better performance from them. The middle-order has done the maximum scoring for DC in the last couple of matches which is a positive sign for the Rishabh Pant-led side. A better performance would be expected from the bowling unit as well.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, are placed in the fourth position currently with 5 wins from 9 matches. They have lost the previous 2 matches and would be looking to make a comeback. The bowlers gave away 202 runs in the last game against Chennai Super Kings and apart from T Natarajan, no other bowler could pick a wicket.

Both DC and SRH have not lost a single game at the Brabourne this season and would be looking to maintain this record. DC’s 3 out of 4 wins have come at this very ground. This might be a high-scoring game considering the fact that the surface offers a lot to the batters. However, it would be tough for batters to score runs initially as pacers might dictate that phase.

Top Picks for DC vs SRH Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
David Warner: He is the leading run-scorer for Delhi Capitals despite just playing 7 matches. Warner failed to make a double-digit score only for the second time in the tournament and would be looking to score maximum runs against his former franchise. Warner made three back-to-back half-centuries in the tournament and might score one more in this game.
Abhishek Sharma: After failing in the first few matches, Abhishek Sharma has scripted a perfect comeback story this season. He has made 30+ scores in the last 4 matches and has provided some fiery starts to SRH. He would be a key player for them in this game.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Aiden Markram: He is the backbone of SRH’s middle-order and would be expected to make a decent score in this match after getting dismissed for 17 runs in the last game. Markram has made 263 runs in 9 matches at an average of 87.66 and a strike rate of 149.43.
Axar Patel: He displayed an impressive show with the bat in the last game against LSG. Axar made 42 runs off just 24 deliveries and had almost won the match for DC. He has made 145 runs in 9 matches at an average of 48.33 and a strike rate of 166.66.
Top Picks – Bowlers
T Natarajan: He has picked 17 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 17.82, an economy of 8.65, and a strike rate of 12.3. Natarajan has picked less than 2 wickets in only 2 matches this season. He is the leading wicket-taker for SRH.
Kuldeep Yadav: He is second on the list of bowlers with most wickets this season. Kuldeep has picked 17 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 15.82, an economy of 8.23, and a strike rate of 11.5. He failed to pick a wicket in the last game and that was only the second occasion in this edition of the league.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Rishabh Pant: He is yet to score a half-century in this edition of the league, however, Pant has scored 234 runs in 9 matches at an average of 33.42. He is likely to play a key role in this match for DC.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: He has picked 9 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 27.66, an economy of 7.28, and a strike rate of 22.7. He has failed to pick a wicket in the last 2 games, hence, would be a risky candidate for the captaincy position of your fantasy team.
