Sunrisers Hyderabad have played two games this week. On Sunday first of May, SRH took on CSK in which MS Dhoni and Co. batted first and gave SRH a target of 203. Umran was very expensive, giving 48 runs in his spell and remained wicketless. The CSK batters found his pace easy to play as they were looking to just time his balls.
GT played three games this week against RCB, PBKS, and MI in which Ferguson gave 36, 29, and 34 respectively in his quota of four overs respectively. He got just three wickets this week. His inability to pick up wickets has been one of the major reasons behind Gujarat’s back-to-back defeats.
The Bengal pacer is doing well in IPL 2022, but his economy rate has been a big issue for him. He is getting hit for too many runs which is a strange thing as Shami is considered an economical bowler. Shami has conceded at an economy rate of more than 10 runs per over in the 12 overs he has bowled in the three games Gujarat played this week.
The 22-years-old did well for Mumbai Indians and was an important member of the side. He has played 52 IPL games till now picking 55 wickets at a bowling average of 25.13. He has bowled some exceptional spells in IPL. His good performances in IPL made way for him to get India’s debut cap in 2019. He has played six T20Is for India.
The premier Indian all-rounder started the season as the captain of the mighty Chennai Super Kings. However, he decided to step down from captaincy and give it back to MS Dhoni in the middle of the ongoing season. The additional responsibilities had an impact on his personal game. He has been promoted in the batting order but has not delivered much.
In the sixth week of IPL 2022, the Mumbai franchise played two games. Pollard scored 10 runs off 14 balls and four off 14 respectively against Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans respectively. With Mumbai reeling at the bottom of the points table, the management will hope the veteran all-rounder hits the form in the remaining games.
LSG played against DC as their single game of the sixth week of IPL 2022. LSG batted first and had an amazing partnership for the second wicket between KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda. Everyone thought that LSG will finish with a 220+ score but Stoinis looked a bit out of touch and scored just 17 off 16 balls with a strike rate of 106.25.
Punjab Kings played only one game this week against the table-toppers Gujarat Titans. Chasing 144 runs, Bairstow came out to open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan in place of the skipper Mayank Agarwal. However, the experiment didn’t work as the England cricketer managed only one run.
The right-hander was bought by the Delhi Capitals in the 2022 IPL mega auction. However, he failed to justify his selection whenever he got a chance to play in the XI. He has played three games this season and got out for a duck twice. Mandeep made 18 in one game that too at a poor strike rate. He definitely will have to level up his game to stay in DC’s playing XI this season.
Prithvi featured only in one game for Delhi Capitals this week against Lucknow Supergiants. LSG batted first and gave DC a challenging target of 196 in 20 overs. Prithvi got dismissed by Dushmantha Chameera, scoring just five runs off seven balls. Chameera bowled short of length outside off and trapped the right-hander at mid-on.
The Jaipur-based franchise took on the Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday, in which Padikkal got out in the third over of the game, scoring two off just five balls. The southpaw has played all ten games for RR this season so far and has scored 216 runs at an average of 21.6. Despite batting in 1o innings, he has managed just a single 50+ score.
