Both Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have endured a rough first half of the ongoing IPL 2023 season. However, David Warner and Co. seemed to have pulled things back together by obtaining back-to-back wins in their last two outings in the competition.
On the other hand, after successive wins, Aiden Markram’s Sunrisers have lost three games on the trot. While Delhi are placed in the tenth place with four points and a Net Run Rate (NRR) of – 0.961, SRH are just above them with as many points with an NRR of -0.725.
In fact, Delhi emerged victorious against SRH in their first clash on April 24, in Hyderabad. Speaking about their head-to-head records in the last five games, the Capitals have stamped their authority on each of the five occasions and will be gunning to add another win against the orange outfit.
David Warner and Co. host Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi on Saturday, April 29. Both sides will be gunning to put their best foot forward and obtain results in their favour.
Pitch and Conditions
The shorter dimensions of the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi aid the batters to score big runs. However, the deck also has something in it for the pacers who will look to play a key role in the contest. Any score in the region of 160-180 could be a competitive game.
Probable Playing XI for DC vs SRH
DC excluded Prithvi Shaw from the set following his underwhelming run with the bat. The management is likely to drop him in the forthcoming game as well and play Ripal Patel and Aman Hakim Khan as they did in the previous clash.
Predicted 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 injury of Washington Sundar comes as a blow for the Sunrisers. However, Abdul Samad could likely make his return to the XI in the upcoming clash.
Predicted XI: Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Marco Jansen, Abdul Samad, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
