SRH vs DC Match Prediction: It’s been quite strange to see a consistent Sunrisers Hyderabad languishing at the sixth position in the points table. Though, it can be argued that Bhuvneshwar and Co. have played one match lesser than their opposition. Still, it has been quite a sub-par tournament for Sunrises so far, having won three matches and lost three too. Given Sunrises have lost their last two matches, they certainly have some concerns to address ahead of the contest against Delhi Capitals.
Perhaps, it’s Sunrisers’ bowling which has let the team down this year more than their batting. The opening pair of Warner and Bairstow have made SRH’s batting look much solid this year. In addition to that, new recruit Vijay Shankar has been batting splendidly in the tournament. However, the form of middle-over players with the likes of Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, and Hooda have been a matter of concern for them. Fortunately, Kane Williamson has been looking fit as he will look to hit the ground running on Sunday as well in a bid to strengthen SRH’s batting line up.
But most importantly, bowling mainstays such as Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan haven’t been up to the mark in the tournament. The duo hasn’t been able to give their side wickets which perhaps has led to the downfall of Sunrisers this year. Hopefully, the bowlers will look to showcase a better performance ahead of the game against Delhi.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, are coming off with two wins. Shreyas Iyer and Co. will be high on confidence as they will look to register their fifth win in the tournament. Delhi’s batting has been spectacular this season. Time and again, one or the other from the top four has stepped up to the occasion and bailed their team out in the matches they have played so far.
The bowling department will be once again spearheaded by Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma. Given the pitch at Hyderabad, Sandeep Lamichhane or Amit Mishra might get a game on Sunday.
Head to Head
SRH vs DC Match Prediction: Delhi, on most of the occasions, has ended up on a losing side against Sunrises Hyderabad. The Capitals have played as many as 13 matches against SRH, where they have managed to win only on four occasions.
