Match 50 of IPL 2022 saw the Delhi Capitals (DC) take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. Here's the updated points table after the high-scoring contest:

Match 50 of IPL 2022 edition saw the Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals (DC) lock horns with the Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Both sides were coming into this fixture on the back of a defeat each. However, DC emerged on top as SRH succumbed to their third straight defeat as the playoffs race heats up.

Opting to bowl first, SRH removed Mandeep Singh -- playing for an injured Prithvi Shaw -- and Mitchell Marsh in no time as Bhuvneshwar Kumar applied pressure with his tight bowling. Opener David Warner (92*), playing his first game versus SRH since being released by the Orange Army last year, led the charge. He initially stitched a handy partnership with skipper Rishabh Pant (26) before Rovman Powell (67 not out) joined him and the duo tormented the SRH bowlers in the death overs. As a result, DC posted a mammoth 207-3 in 20 overs.

In reply, Williamson & Co. weren't off to the best of starts. In-form opener Abhishek Sharma and Williamson fell early whereas Rahul Triphathy tried his best to up the ante but departed for an 18-ball 22. Aiden Markram's attacking 42 kept SRH in the hunt before it all came down to Nicholas Pooran. Pooran, the newly-appointed white-ball captain of West Indies, didn't give up easily but his fireworks (34-ball 62) took SRH only to 186/8, with the 2016 champions losing by 21 runs. Heres' the updated points table of IPL 2022 after match 50:
