Although he had a brief innings in the previous game against CSK, scoring only 18 runs, he showed promising form. Despite two quiet games in the past, the 24-year-old is now determined to notch up another big score.

Our prediction is that the Sunrisers will win over the Delhi Capitals in a tightly contested match, ending their losing streak in Hyderabad. Although the Sunrisers have individual match-winners in David Warner, Axar Patel, and Anrich Nortje, they have struggled to perform cohesively as a team. Despite the efforts of their star players, the team’s weaknesses have been apparent even before the halfway mark of the season. However, if Aiden Markram and Harry Brook can find their groove, the Sunrisers could successfully chase or set any target.
