Sunrisers Hyderabad is ready to welcome Delhi Capitals in the 30th fixture of the Indian Premier League for another intriguing contest. The Orange Army will look to get back to winning ways after two back-to-back defeats while the visitors must be ecstatic after their exceptional performance in their last encounter. Both the teams will battle it out for the second time in this season; the Sunrisers emerged victorious by five wickets in their previous meeting.
Sunrisers Hyderabad was the most balanced team on paper, but their recent slump performances have exploited their batting woes. Apart from David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, no other batsmen have been up to the mark for the SRH. However, they are still of the strongest contenders to lift the trophy given they address to their shortcomings at earliest. Sunrisers Hyderabad would be hoping to get back to winning ways when they host the Capitals tomorrow. Kane Williamson could be seen making a comeback after Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has been miserable with his captaincy.
Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals look a different side in this edition of the Indian Premier League. With Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, and Rishabh Pant, the visitors have the best Indian core batting lineup in their ranks unarguably. Delhi Capitals won their previous encounter comprehensively by seven wickets while chasing a tricky total of 178 runs on the board. Shikhar Dhawan was declared the Man of the Match for his excellent 97-run knock against the Knight Riders. Delhi Capitals would be eyeing to register another victory away from home when they collide with Sunrisers Hyderabad.
