Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match preview
The Capitals, led by David Warner, were going nowhere in their campaign. After losing their first five matches, they were looking absolutely down the out. They were languishing at the bottom of the table and needed a win desperately to get back to winning ways.
The Capitals finally got their first win when they defeated the Nitish Rana-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by four wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. The match was a low-scoring affair and in the end, Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav held their nerve to take DC past the finish line.
Thereafter, DC got their second win under their belt after beating the Sunrisers by seven runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Axar Patel, who has shown a lot of consistency, was their star performer.
Axar scored 34 runs off as many balls with four fours. On the back of his knock, the Capitals scored 144 for the loss of nine wickets. Thereafter, Axar picked up two crucial wickets and guided his team past the finish line.
DC possible XI: David Warner (c), Philip Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Sarfaraz Khan, Axar Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, Ripal Patel, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma
The Sunrisers, led by Aiden Markram, are in a spot of bother. The 2016 champions began their campaign with a heavy 72-run defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals (RR) after which they slumped to a five-wicket loss to Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
The Orange Army made amends by winning their first game after they defeated Shikhar Dhawan’s Punjab Kings (PBKS) by eight wickets. Thereafter, SRH got the better of Nitish Rana’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 23 runs.
Just when it seemed that the Sunrisers were finding some momentum, they have entered a slump yet again. SRH are currently on a three-match losing streak and are in danger of going down to the bottom of the points table.
They will go into the game after losing to David Warner’s Delhi Capitals (DC) by seven runs. Washington Sundar was excellent with the ball after he finished with figures of 4-0-28-3. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also looked at his very best, having churned out figures of 4-0-11-2.
Sundar also scored an unbeaten 15-ball 24, but his knock was not enough for SRH to chase down the target. Heinrich Klaasen’s 31 and Mayank Agarwal’s 49 also went in vain.
SRH possible XI: Abhishek Sharma, Harry Brook, Aiden Markram (c), Mayank Agarwal, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
Pitch and expected weather conditions
The pitch at the venue in New Delhi has been a tad on the slower side. Run-making may not be all that easy and spinners are likely to come into play. There is no chance of rain for the time being. Temperatures will be around the 30-degree Celsius mark.

Match prediction: Delhi Capitals to win
The Capitals will go into the next game as favorites, although they are placed at the bottom of the points table. DC have won their last two games while the Sunrisers have lost three matches in a row. The Capitals also beat SRH in their previous match a couple of days ago.
Toss prediction: Delhi Capitals to win the toss and field first
The Capitals should opt to field first after winning the toss. They have the batting to chase down targets against an SRH attack, which has not looked at its best in the championship.
Man of the match prediction: Axar Patel
Axar Patel has scored 182 runs from seven games for the Capitals at an average of 30.33 and a strike-rate of 135.82 with a top score of 54. He has also picked up six wickets in as many innings at an excellent economy rate of 7.04.
- Delhi Capitals: 1.805
- Sunrisers Hyderabad: 2.005
The bookmakers believe that the Capitals have an edge over the Sunrisers in their upcoming game. We also think that DC can beat the Sunrisers in their reverse fixture.
