The IPL 2022 season is fast approaching and the teams are looking for the right combinations. Season after season, the IPL Auction has played an important part in the formation of the teams. The IPL 2022 Mega Auction also witnessed the teams breaking the bank. So, let’s have a look at the two teams Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. There is also a quick analysis mentioned below: 

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team for IPL 2022: 

Players Name Position Players Name Position 
Kane Williamson Batter Marco Jansen All-Rounder 
Washington Sundar All-Rounder Sean Abbot Fast Bowler 
T Natarajan Fast Bowler Aiden Markram Batter 
Nicholas Pooran Batter/Keeper Shashank Singh All-Rounder 
Saurabh Dubey All-Rounder  Bhuvneshwar Kumar  Fast Bowler 
Rahul Tripathi  Batter Vishnu Vinod All-Rounder 
Priyam Garg Batter Glenn Phillips Batter/Keeper 
Abhishek Sharma All-Rounder Fazalhaq Farooqi All-Rounder 
Shreyas Gopal  Spinner Umran Malik Fast Bowler 
Abdul Samad  All-Rounder  Kartik Tyagi Fast Bowler 
Jagadeesha Suchith Spinner   
Ravikumar Samarth  Batter   
Romario Shepherd All-Rounder   

Expected Playing XI: 

Aiden Markram, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (C), Nicholas Pooran, Priyam Garg/Washington Sundar, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Umran Malik/Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan/Kartik Tyagi, Marco Jansen, Shreyas Gopal. 

Strengths: The team’s middle-order looks solid. They have top batting options. Nicholas Pooran is in the form of his life. He plays the spinners very well. Kane Willaimson, Abhishek Sharma, and Abdul Samad are present to provide stability. Washington Sundar will give a few good overs in the powerplay as well.

Weakness: Too many cooks spoil the broth. They have too many pace-bowling options. Bhuvi, Natarajan, Jansen, Umran Malik, Romario, and Kartik Tyagi. The management has to figure out a way to fit all the pieces together. The opening option is also not looking formidable. They can give Glenn Phillips an opening chance.  

Opportunities: The opportunities are for Umran Malik and Abdul Samad. The thing is that the Indian Cricket Team always looks for a good finisher. Hardik is never a consistent player due to his injuries, Jadeja is on and off with the bat. Abdul Samad can certainly try for that available spot.  

Threats: The biggest threat is the possible absence of Kane Williamson. Williamson is facing an elbow injury that will take some time to recover.  

Delhi Capitals Team: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Rishabh Pant Batter/Keeper KS Bharat Batter/Keeper 
Axar Patel All-Rounder Kamlesh Nagarkoti Fast Bowler 
Prithvi Shaw Batter Khaleel Ahmed  Fast-Bowler 
Anrich Nortje  Fast Bowler Chetan Sakariya Fast Bowler 
Khaleel Ahmed Fast Bowler Lalit Yadav All-Rounder 
David Warner Batter Ripal Patel All-Rounder 
Mitchell Marsh All-Rounder Yash Dhull Batter 
Kuldeep Yadav Spinner Rovman Powell  All-Rounder 
Shardul Thakur  All-Rounder Pravin Dubey All-Rounder 
Mustafizur Rahman Fast Bowler Lungi Ngidi Fast Bowler 
Ashwin Hebbar All-Rounder Vicky Ostwal Spinner 
Abhishek Sharma All-Rounder   
Mandeep Singh Batter   

Expected Playing XI: 

David Waner, Prithvi Shaw, Mandeep Singh/KS Bharat, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (C, WK), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya. 

Strengths: The explosive opening pair looks solid. Prithvi Shaw and Warner can beat the hell out of any bowling attack. Mitchell Marsh is in the form of his life. Rovman Powell is a lesser-known player who can be an X-Factor. Their Indian bowling line-up looks formidable with the presence of Khaleel, Sakariya, and Shardul Thakur.

Weakness: No evident weaknesses. However, both Warner and Shaw are having a weakness against the swinging ball. The number 3 batter is a lesser-known face. It can be Mandeep Singh or KS Bharat.  

Opportunities: Many opportunities for Indian pacers. Sakariya and Khaleel Ahmed are the top left-arm pacers in the country. With them bringing the other dimension, they have an upper hand over the other bowlers.  

Threats: Shardul Thakur leaks runs at times. Mitchell Marsh and his injury concern is something to ponder upon.
