Both the teams lost their last match in this year’s IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad lost to Chennai Super Kings in a high scoring match and Delhi Capitals lost to Lucknow Super Giants by just 6 runs hence a win here is important for both the teams now.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has formed a great team and thus have looked in good touch this season. Their openers, Kane Williamson and Abhishek Sharma have been doing well for the team and have scored runs in most of the matches.
In the middle order, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran have looked good and thus this is the reason why they are in the top four at the point table. Apart from them, Shashank Singh has been playing well for the team and is perfectly performing the role of a finisher. In the bowling department Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natrajan and Umran Mailk have been doing well for the team. However, the form of Marco Jansen has been a sign of worry for them. Besides him, even Washington Sundar hasn’t done much and hence the management will be looking to replace them with some other players.
For Delhi Capitals, a do or die match awaits them. David Warner will be looking to give his best against his former franchise as he will be looking to take the revenge for benching him in the last season. Apart from him, Prithvi Shaw will have a big role to play in this match. In the middle order, Mitchell Marsh has been playing well. However, Rishabh Pant and Lalit Yadav haven’t done much for the team and hence the team management will be hoping for some big innings from them.
Rovamann Powell, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur will be also looking to do well for the team. The bowlers, Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav and Chetan Sakariya have picked up wickets for them and hence they will look to win against Hyderabad.
