The 33rd match of the current Indian Premier League (IPL) will take place between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday (September 22).
SRH is struggling with six seven-game losses in the cash-rich league’s fourteenth season. Not only that, they also changed the captain by removing David Warner and giving responsibility to Kane Williamson.
Although the change in leadership role did not work as the “Orange Army” lost their previous encounter against Rajasthan Royals (RR). The move to remove Warner from his game eleven and include Mohammad Nabi failed for the Sunrisers.
Nabi is highly unlikely to have a chance against DC. Instead, fast-bowling all-rounder, Jason Holder could appear in the final XI.
On the other hand, Rishabh Pant will continue to lead the Capitals even after Shreyas Iyer’s return to the team. Last year’s runners-up rank second on the points table with six wins from eight games.
Pant and Co. will be looking to find the same foreign players who played in the 2021 IPL final against the Mumbai Indians (MI).
