Delhi and Hyderabad will be keen to return to winning ways when they come face to face at Brabourne Stadium in match 50 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. A narrow defeat against Lucknow saw Delhi, seventh in the points table, slump to their fifth loss. Meanwhile, Hyderabad have suffered back-to-back defeats. But they are fifth in the standings with ten points from nine matches.
Here are five interesting fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Delhi-Hyderabad match.
P SHAW VS K WILLIAMSON
Despite scoring just five runs in his last two matches, Prithvi Shaw will be feeling confident ahead of the clash against Hyderabad. The 22-year-old has made scores of 38, 51, and 41 at Brabourne Stadium this season. Kane Williamson, on the other hand, registered 33 runs in two innings at the venue. He made a 37-ball 47 in Hyderabad's last outing in the Indian T20 League.
Verdict: P Shaw is likely to win the Match-Up against K Williamson.
D WARNER VS U MALIK
Both David Warner and Umran Malik couldn't make a valuable contribution in their respective last matches. The Delhi opener was dismissed in the powerplay, while the Hyderabad pacer conceded 48 runs in his four overs. However, Warner has struck consecutive fifties - 61 and 60* - in his two outings at Brabourne Stadium.
Verdict: D Warner might claim more fantasy points than U Malik.
R PANT VS ABHISHEK S
Rishabh Pant and Abhishek Sharma lock horns in a Match-Up of two stylish left-handed batters. A 30-ball 44 against Lucknow helped Pant, who has picked up an average of 43 fantasy points per match, cross 200 runs in the 2022 season. Hyderabad opening batter Abhishek has amassed 182 runs, including a 47 against Bangalore at Brabourne Stadium, in his last four outings.
Verdict: R Pant is likely to win this Match-Up.

A PATEL VS S THAKUR
Axar Patel came up with another impressive performance with the bat in the defeat against Lucknow. He made an unbeaten 42 and stitched together a 41-run stand with Kuldeep Yadav for the eighth wicket. Shardul Thakur topped Delhi's fantasy points charts against Lucknow with 86 points. The former Chennai player clinched 3/40 and took a catch off his own bowling to dismiss Deepak Hooda.
Verdict: S Thakur could beat A Patel in this Match-Up.
KULDEEP Y VS A MARKRAM
Kuldeep Yadav bagged more batting points than bowling points in his previous match. He is two wickets away from equaling current Purple Holder Yuzvendra Chahal's tally of 19 wickets. Meanwhile, Aiden Markram had made 36-ball 68* in his lone batting outing at Brabourne Stadium in the ongoing season. He is second in Hyderabad's batting charts with 263 runs from seven innings.
