IPL 2021: DC vs SRH- Weather Forecast And Pitch Report Of Dubai Cricket Stadium. Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Delhi Capitals in the 33rd match of IPL 2021 on Wednesday. The two teams have had different results this year. While Delhi Capitals are close to reaching their second consecutive playoffs, Sunrisers Hyderabad are languishing at the bottom of the points table.

Riding on Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw’s opening partnerships, Delhi Capitals have managed to post formidable totals on the board in the India leg of the IPL 2021. The duo has scored close to 700 runs combined in the 8 games this season. Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer capitalized on that in the middle order, though, the former didn’t look at his best.

Shreyas Iyer missed out in the first leg of the tournament. Steve Smith and Ajinkya Rahane replaced him in the playing XI but neither of them could turn up with good returns. Iyer is fit to play in the second leg of the tournament, which also means that Anrich Nortje could play his first game of IPL 2021 on Wednesday.

Avesh Khan has been a great find for them this year. Khan impressed one and all with his accuracy and pace. He has 14 wickets to his name in 8 matches, only 3 wickets behind the purple cap holder, Harshal Patel. Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma are other pacemen in the squad.

Ravi Ashwin, who missed the last couple of matches in the first leg of the season, is likely to make a return in the playing XI. Delhi Capitals are currently sitting at second position with 6 wins in 8 matches. Ahead of the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, they would be keen to continue the winning momentum and strengthen their position on the points table.

Facing them are Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are languishing at the bottom of the table. Sunrisers Hyderabad have endured their worst performance this year in their IPL history. Given the fact that they have only managed to win one match so far, this will perhaps be the first time when they won’t reach the playoffs since 2016.

Jonny Bairstow scored plenty of runs at the top of the order, however, the Indian contingent in the middle order hasn’t been able to capitalize on that starts. David Warner, too, didn’t enjoy a consistent run at the top of the order and as a result, Kane Williamson took over the leadership duties midway in the tournament. Warner was dropped from Hyderabad’s final match of the India leg of IPL 2021.

However, with Bairstow not in the side for the second leg, the Australian opener is likely to make his way back into the eleven. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan will mark their return in the side for the UAE leg of the tournament and this should come as a big boost for them.

For Hyderabad to make the playoffs, they need to win all of their games that are left this season. How they begin the UAE leg against Delhi remains to be seen.

The 33rd match of the IPL 2021 will be played between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The 30th match between CSK and MI was also played at the same venue. It was a two-paced wicket. The ball wasn’t coming onto the bat nicely as it was much on the slower side.

Batting isn’t as easy as it seems. Also, with bigger boundaries, you won’t get to see a lot of sixes. CSK posted 156 runs in the first innings against MI in match 30 of IPL 2021 on Sunday, largely due to a sensational 88-run knock from Ruturaj Gaekwad. Mumbai Indians, in reply, scored 136 runs. Having said that, there wasn’t a lot of movement in the air or off the surface for fast bowlers. The team winning the toss is likely to bat first.

Average 1st Inns scores 144
Average 2nd Inns scores 122

Dubai is expected to be hot and humid. The conditions here should suggest that there is no possibility of rain. One could expect a good game of cricket. The average temperature will hover around 42-degree Celsius.
