IPL 2020: Top three picks for Delhi Capitals against Sunrisers Hyderabad

Delhi Capitals


The second-placed Delhi Capitals have seemed to lost their track in the IPL 2020 after registering continuous victories. The teams have lost two games on the tort and are on the verge of making it three against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Though they have one foot in their playoffs, they aren’t officially qualified. Multiple teams are tied on 14-points and it can go till the last day for the qualification. Delhi Capitals have to get their act together before they press the panic button.

Though they have registered the outright victories barring one or two, their dwindling form is a worry of concern. The partner for Shikhar Dhawan has failed to get going in the league. Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane have failed to open their account three times out of four games. On the other hand, Rishabh Pant is unable to clear the ropes which he was usually doing in the previous editions.

The bowling has been top-notch. The bowling also failed in their previous game against Kolkata Knight Riders. Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine took Delhi Capitals’ spinners to the task and scored a humongous 195 in 20 overs. They have to sit back and reassess their strategy in the ongoing edition before they play playoffs.

Here are the top three picks for Delhi Capitals against struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2020:

#1) Rishabh Pant


The dashing wicket-keeper batsman has been left out of the squad for Tour Down Under because of a lack of form and fitness. The southpaw’s Internationa cricket future is in danger after KL Rahul is named as both vice-captain and wicketkeeper for the white ball format. Also, the addition of Sanju Samson as a backup wicketkeeper is shocking news for the player.

On Tuesday, the player will have a point to prove and can be a dangerous one for the opposition. He has come out on top whenever there was pressure on him. He will be one of the top three picks for Delhi Capitals against SRH on Tuesday.

#2) Shreyas Iyer

The captain of the team has always led the team by the front in the ongoing edition of the IPL. Whenever the team was in a dangerous situation, he has addressed it. In the previous game too, he tried to take his team towards the target but his dismissal pulled the collapse. The player will look to address the concern against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Shreyas Iyer has 382 runs in his kitty after 11 games and will look to sail through to the playoffs with a victory on Tuesday. He will be one of the top three picks for Delhi Capitals at Dubai International Stadium.

#3) Anrich Nortje

The Protean international has been a great addition to Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020. The player was rested against Kings XI Punjab but was called back to the line-up after the team faced defeat. The player justified his selection with an economical spell in which he gave away just 27 runs in his quota of four overs. He also removed two wickets of Rahul Tripathi and Shubmann Gill.

Possessing the ability to bowl over 150, Anrich Nortje will be a bad dream for his opposition. The team management will expect a great performance from their star performer and will be one of the top three picks for his side at Dubai International Stadium.
