Preview

It is a Super Sunday in the IPL 2020 when we will get our second finalist of the season. Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will lock horns against each other in second qualifier. SRH, led by David Warner, have momentum with them having won four matches on the trot and one of their thumping wins came against DC as well. They defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a low-scoring thriller in the eliminator.

DC, on the other hand, were at the receiving end of all the thrashing at the hands of Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first qualifier. Finishing the league stage at the second position rescued them and has presented them with yet another chance to make it to the final. However, a lot needs to be sorted for the Capitals before they get on the field on Sunday. Their batting and bowling, both, has suffered and has lost all its X-factor and will need a special effort to beat SRH.

Pitch Condition/Report

Slow pitch was on offer in Abu Dhabi on Friday and to everyone’s surprise, there wasn’t much dew. It was a low-scoring thriller and if the same pitch is used, we might be in for another such encounter. While SRH are doing well with winning the toss and bowling first, DC might think otherwise given their vulnerability in chasing big totals.

DC vs SRH Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:

David Warner is in amazing form with the bat. He is the second-highest run-getter of the season with 546 runs to his name. If he plays out Ravi Ashwin well, we might witness a special knock from the SRH skipper.

Kane Williamson played one of the best knocks of IPL 2020 in tense situation against RCB to help the team get over the line. He will once again be key with a similar kind of pitch likely to be on offer.

Anrich Nortje has flown under the radar with all the focus on Rabada. But Nortje has done a good job picking 20 wickets thus far.

Marcus Stoinis could be a surprising name in this list. But his brute force in the middle is needed for DC to chase high totals. If they find themselves chasing around 190-200 again, DC might promote him this time around.
