This Sunday saw yet another doubleheader day in IPL 2022 as Delhi Capitals took on Lucknow Super Giants in the first game of the day and Sunrisers Hyderabad took on Chennai Super Kings in the night game.
In the first game, LSG won by 6 runs to go 2nd on the points table and in the 2nd game, CSK won their 3rd game of the season by 13 runs.
DC vs LSG
KL Rahul won the toss and batted first, Rahul and Deepak Hooda scored the 50s and took LSG to 195 runs in the first innings.
Marcus Stoinis managed just 17 off 16 deliveries, if he could have got going LSG would have scored much more than what they eventually did.
For DC, Axar bowled an economical spell as he gave away just 25 runs in his 4 overs but he didn’t take a wicket. Shardul Thakur was expensive as he gave away 40 runs but picked up 3 wickets.
Delhi Capitals were never really in the chase as they lost wickets at regular intervals. Prithvi Shaw and David Warner both got out early. Rishabh Pant, Mitchell Marsh and Rovman Powell got starts but they couldn’t materialise their starts and in the end, it was too much of a task for DC’s lower order to chase the target.
Mohsin Khan picked up 4 for 16 and got the player of the match award.
SRH vs CSK
MS Dhoni returned to captain the side, and CSK returned to winning ways. Ruturaj Gaikwad also got back in form as scored 99 runs. Devon Conway also returned to the side and scored 85 runs. Due to the blistering performance from their openers, CSK posted 202 runs on the board.
SRH got to 58 runs inside the powerplay but they lost two back to back wickets in the form of Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi which put SRH on the backfoot. They continued to lose wickets whenever they looked like they were going well in the chase but eventually lost the game by
