Kane Williamson has won the toss, and Sunrisers Hyderabad are bowling first against Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022. The dew factor and the will to chase the total is behind Kane’s decision to invite Pant to bat first. “We want to chase because we would know the target, and obviously, the dew factor is another reason. SRH have made three changes. Marco Jansen misses out along with Washington Sundar and Natarajan. Kartik Tyagi, Sean Abbott, and Shreyas Gopal are in.
Rishabh Pant is not concerned about batting first as he was ready for both options. Capitals have made four changes, with Prithvi Shaw and Axar Patel being ruled out of the contest. Prithvi, Axar, Chetan, and Mustafizur are out. Mandeep, Khaleel, Ripal, and Nortje are in.
