Misfiring Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will have their task cut out when they take on resurgent Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. After a solid start to the season which saw the Sunrisers win three of their opening four games in thumping manner, the Hyderabad-based franchise has lost two in a row. And unlike the Sunrisers, the Capitals have returned back to winning ways by winning their last two games.
Sunrisers will seek home comfort after losing their last game which was against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali. It was an unusual performance from the Bhuvneshwar Kumar-led side as the batsmen struggled to get going throughout their innings. David Warner managing just 70 runs from 62 balls despite remaining not out makes the story pretty clear. Sunrisers could only manage 150 before Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) rode on KL Rahul’s unbeaten fifty to chase down the total with a ball remaining.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have looked like a force to reckon with while playing away from home. They have already beaten Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) away from home and will definitely fancy their chances against Sunrisers who are low on confidence. In their last outing, they thrashed Knight Riders by seven wickets with Shikhar Dhawan scoring an unbeaten 97.
Delhi Capitals will definitely start the game as favourites but Shreyas Iyer & Co. should be well aware of the threat possessed by SRH, one of the most consistent teams in recent years. Moreover, the Sunrisers have already beaten Delhi once this season and will take confidence from that. The hosts can also welcome their skipper Kane Williamson as coach Tom Moody has confirmed the New Zealand is fit for selection.
How will be the weather:
As far as the weather is concerned, there is good news for both the teams and the fans. According to AccuWeather, there are no chances of rainfall. The temperature will be around 33-degree Celsius at the start of the game but will fall down to 20s as the game progresses. The cloud cover will be around 31% throughout the game while the humidity will hover between 25-35%.
