IPL 2020: Top 3 Picks for Sunrisers Hyderabad against Delhi Capitals


Sunrisers Hyderabad squares up against Delhi Capitals in one of the most intriguing games of the IPL 2020. Delhi Capitals are on top of the league table whereas Sunrisers Hyderabad are in the rock bottom. The Hyderabad outfit is still in the search of their first victory in the 13th edition of the season.

David Warner had a normal outing against Kolkata Knight Riders whereas the England wicket-keeper batsmen, Jonny Bairstow couldn’t get going. Manish Pandey has remained consistent in both the games, finding his feet in the league amidst the pandemic break.

Against Kolkata Knight Riders, both batting and bowling seemed to be successful until Shubhman Gill and Eoin Morgan decided to pull the strings. Gill and Morgan stopped the early rot while KKR was pursuing a target of 146. The bowlers need to be consistent and their start leg-break bowler, Rashid Khan has only one wicket in two games. These things have hurt Sunrisers Hyderabad on top of the batting weakness. VVS Laxman and the team management will hope to address these issues before locking their horns with Delhi Capitals.


Here are the top three picks for Sunrisers Hyderabad against the Shreyas Iyer led Delhi Capitals on Tuesday:

#1) David Warner

The Australian skipper, David Warner is the most important and one among the top three picks for Sunrisers Hyderabad against Delhi Capitals. After a dismal first game, David Warner scored a patient 36 after the early fall of Jonny Bairstow. The dashing and swashbuckling Australian international will look to take the match into his own hands against Delhi as they have a strong bowling line-up that can unsettle any side. The SRH batting depends on David Warner’s performance against Delhi if they are to register their first victory in IPL 20220.

#2) Manish Pandey

Manish Pandey



The Karnataka batsman has scored in both the games, against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. In the first game, his dismissal led to Sunrisers Hyderabad’s fall. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, Manish Pandey supported and played the second fiddle to David Warner after the early fall of Jonny Bairstow. He notched up a half-century in 38 deliveries and played a crucial role in putting up a decent total against Kolkata outfit. Manish Pandey will look to kill the match against table-toppers Delhi Capitals on Tuesday as SRH are in search of their first victory.

#3) Mohammad Nabi

Mohammad Nabi

The Afghanistan spinning all-rounder was not in the playing XI against Royal Challengers Bangalore on their inaugural fixture. Mitchell Marsh got ruled out of the tournament due to injury in the first game against RCB. This opened the door for Mohammad Nabi in the second game who put down the marker on his spot. He not only scored quickfire 11 runs at the fag end of the game but also controlled the run flow of Kolkata Knight Riders. He gave away just 23 runs in his quota of four overs.
