Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will lock horns with Delhi Capitals (DC) in Match 34 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday, April 24. Both teams have faced off against each other 21 times, with Hyderabad winning 11 times while Delhi have come out victorious on 10 occasions.
SRH will be coming off a seven-wicket loss over four-time IPL Champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) from their previous game that was played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 21. SRH have won only two of their six matches and with four points, they are currently placed ninth on the IPL 2023 points table with a negative net run rate (-0.794).
Notably, their victories have come against Punjab Kings (PBKS) and two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). DC, on the other hand, come into the contest on the back of a four-wicket win over KKR. Notably, this was David Warner’s side’s first win of the season. With a negative net run rate (-1.183), they continue to sit at the bottom of the IPL 2023 points table.
Both teams have had a rough start to the season and will need to bounce back in the remaining matches to stay in playoff contention. A win is necessary for both teams when they face off on Monday. The two sides may assemble a dynamic lineup to collect the two crucial points.
