Delhi Capitals, the table-toppers, will be up against Sunrisers Hyderabad who haven’t had a good start in this season. The Capitals side has looked to be the team to beat this season. Their batsmen have done well but it is their bowling especially which has stepped up big time. They look a well-oiled unit and everyone seems to have done well in the chances they have got.

Sunrisers on the other hand, a team which has qualified for playoffs every season since 2016, hasn’t been up to the mark. They have looked heavily reliant on their opening partnership for runs and their bowling hasn’t come good yet. They will look to make a few changes from their loss against KKR to change the momentum for themselves.

Here are 3 players who you can look to exclude from your Dream11 team for DC vs SRH encounter:

1. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (9 credits)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has looked very rusty in the IPL till now. While he was decent in the first game against MI, against KKR he went for 29 in 3 overs without picking a wicket. He hasn’t looked threatening. He has bowled with middling pace without really challenging the batsmen. He also doesn’t have happy memories playing Delhi as he was taken to the cleaners by Rishabh Pant in 2018. You can opt for other in form bowlers in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

2. Wriddhiman Saha (8 credits)

A player which you can surely keep out of your eleven is Wriddhiman Saha. He was brought into the team last game and looked badly out of touch. He scored a painstaking 30 of 31 balls and sucked all the momentum out of SRH’s batting. For quite a few seasons now, Saha hasn’t been a regular part of playing XIs of IPL franchises. He is primarily a Test batsman and doesn’t possess the ability to really accelerate especially in the middle overs. The experienced Saha can be safely left out.

3. Shikhar Dhawan (10 credits)

Shikhar Dhawan showed decent form in the last game against CSK with a 27 ball 35. But he hasn’t looked at his fluent best. Also when you go to make your team for this game, he might not fit in with his credit requirement. This game has a lot of brilliant batsmen playing who are in better form or have other things going for them and to opt for them over Dhawan might be more conducive. This decision is not as much because of the player’s poor form but others being a better prospect.
