DC vs SRH match preview

Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will cross swords in the 33rd match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The M Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi will host the contest.

The Capitals are still at the bottom half of the table and need to extend their winning streak to further climb the skipper. SRH, on the other hand, have looked the most ruthless batting unit in the tournament.

The Capitals and the Sunrisers have faced each other 23 times since their first meeting back in 2013. SRH are leading DC 12-11 on the head-to-head count. At home, the Capitals have a poor record against the Orange Army, winning only 1 out of 6 games.

In their previous meeting, SRH beat DC by 9 runs. Mitchell Marsh won the Player of the Match award after he scored 63 runs off 39 balls and picked up 4 wickets for 27 runs. DC do not have Marsh this time as he has returned to Australia after tearing his hamstring.

The upcoming DC vs SRH prediction may turn out to be a one-sided affair as the Sunrisers are in a different zone altogether.

Player of the Match prediction: Travis Head
