The evening fixture of the doubleheader on Sunday will be played between Chennai and Delhi. With no team having mathematically qualified for the final four, the tournament is still wide open and both sides would want to grab the 2 points on offer.
More desperate would be Chennai who are languishing at the ninth position on the points table with just 3 wins from their 10 matches. Delhi also haven't been as consistent as they would have liked with 5 wins and as many defeats in their 10 games.
Here is a stat-based prediction of how things could unfold when these two sides meet at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai on Sunday evening.
1. Toss Prediction
Chennai have won 4 tosses so far in IPL 2022 which is less than Delhi's 6. Both have played 10 matches each, meaning Delhi have had a better toss winning rate. Predicting Delhi to win the toss ahead of this match.
2. Win Possibility
While Chennai have the better head-to-head record among these two teams, they haven't played as per their reputation this season. It seems like they have a mountain to climb from here and the pressure of that might even prevent them from playing their best match. So predicting Delhi to win this match who are not only placed higher on the points table but have shown more promise than the defending champions this season.
3. Team of the Day
The Team of the Day is Delhi who apart from their better run than in Chennai in IPL 2022 are riding on the back of a win over Hyderabad.
4. Powerplay Score
44.1 is the average powerplay score at this venue in this season of the IPL. Despite the wickets getting slower, both teams should easily get past the 40-run mark inside the first six overs.
5. Average first innings and second innings score
The average first innings score in IPL 2022 is 167.46. Meanwhile, the average second innings score here is 161.2.
