IPL 2020, DC VS SRH: Sunrisers Hyderabad hunt for first win against Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on each other at Sheikh Zayed Stadium Abu Dhabi. Delhi team has won both their matches and have momentum with them. They will fancy their chances against a Hyderabad team that is yet to register a win and have lost both the matches.

Starting with Sunrisers Hyderabad David Warner and team will be desperate to turn things around and hope that team puts up a complete performance. Batting looks dependent on top 3 as middle-order looks weak and their bowling also has not clicked as well with only Rashid looking threatening in phases. Bhuvneshwar and others would like to start hitting the wicket-taking lengths that give them a chance to win. Likes of Saha, Khaleel, Priyam, Abhishek, Vijay have to raise their game.

Getting to winning ways and then having a run of 3-4 wins is important otherwise once in habit of losing matches, winning becomes very difficult. Delhi team looks very well balanced and have been able to do well in batting and bowling departments. Fielding needs to improve a bit. They will again rely on top 6 to give their bowling unit a par plus score to defend.

Dhawan, Shaw, Iyer, Pant, Stoinis, Hetmyer have been among runs. Rabada, Nortje, Axar, Mishra have done well in the bowling department. Stonis also has bowled some overs for them as 6th bowler option. In absence of Ashwin, Delhi spinners have done well and will get another chance as Iyer indicated that Ashwin will be given one more game to rest. They have got 7-8 players doing well together and this has shown in their results.

As things stand Delhi look favourites to win and if Warner plays an innings as Rahul or Mayank did then SRH might give themselves a chance.
