More about Delhi and Hyderabad
The runners-up of IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals, would be keen on repeating their good performance. They have retained the young and fearless Rishabh Pant, the left-arm spinner Axar Patel, the attacking opener Prithvi Shaw, and a gun pace bowler Anrich Nortje. They will be looking to build their team around these four. The exclusion of Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, Stoinis, and former captain Shreyas Iyer surprised many. However, the retentions are never easy to decide, and there are always going to be some top players that will be released by franchises.
To put it simply, the Capitals drafted Pant as #1 on their list of retained players. He has also been the DC vs SRH man of the match, where he scored a match-winning 128 against Hyderabad. As soon as Iyer ruled himself out, Shaw was given the position. Nortje and Axar were more difficult for the Capitals to agree upon. It is important to note that the franchise may select only four players.
Gautam Gambhir stepped down as captain of Delhi Capitals in 2018, and Iyer took over the reins, leading the franchise to their first-ever IPL final in 2020. However, owing to the COVID-19 epidemic, he had to sit out the IPL 2021, which was suspended in May. Iyer was demoted to second-stringer after suffering an injury setback.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers would want to learn from their mistakes in the past two years. They would want to focus on overhauling their T20 approach, which is not working any longer. Since their inception, they have been a bowling-dependent team focused on getting a decent total and letting their bowlers take care of things. When the bowlers had a bad day, they would lose.
In their last IPL season, SRH finished at the bottom of the DC vs SRH points table, making it a year to forget for the team. The bowling attack of Sunrisers Hyderabad has long been regarded as the strongest in the IPL. However, by the year 2021, they had become completely commonplace. Other than Rashid Khan, none of the bowlers appeared to be in good rhythm or displaying their usual flamboyance.
Pre-auction retention figures for the IPL 2022 mega-auction have surprised everyone. Kane Williamson has been retained, which is understandable given that he is the leading candidate for the captaincy. Abdul Samad and Umran Malik are the other two holdovers. Khaleel Ahmed, Kehar Jadhav, and Vijay Shankar have not been retained. The Orange Army had better choices than the Jammu-Kashmir pair.
