The Kane Williamson-led team are currently slotted at the fifth position with as many as 5 wins and 4 defeats this T20 tournament.

DC vs SRH IPL 2022: Is Washington Sundar Playing Today?

For the second time this season, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s off-spinner Washington Sundar has pulled off a split webbing in his bowling hand. During the last match against Chennai Super Kings, he injured his bowling hand while fielding near the boundary line and subsequently also failed to bowl a single over in the first innings. Sundar had already missed a few matches this Indian Premier League season when he previously pulled off a split webbing.

“It’s very unfortunate that he had a knock on the same hand were he split his webbing. It had healed completely but he re-injured that area, it’s not injured to the point that he needs it re-stitched. But unfortunately, it wasn’t in a state were he could bowl. It really did have an impact on for us in that early phase of bowling, given he has such a critical bowler for us,” SRH coach Tom Moody said at the post-match presentation.

Due to the above mentioned injury, Washington Sundar is unlikely to be available for selection during the today IPL match against Delhi Capitals. His absence will be a massive blow for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
