The 33rd game of the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is being played between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Abu Dhabi. Both of them are resuming their campaign playing the first game of the UAE leg. In the first phase of the tournament, the Capitals won six matches out of eight and were at the top of the points table.
SRH went through poor form and also changed the skipper midway through the season. They have won only a solitary game in seven outings. To make it to the playoffs, they will have to win all the remaining matches. But according to CricTracker Expert Lalchand Rajput doesn’t think that the Orange Army will be able to beat the Rishabh Pant-led side.
According to him, the Delhi Capitals should win this game and win their seventh game thereby regaining the top spot in the points table. Rajput expressed his opinion in CricTracker’s pre-match analysis show ‘In the Air’.

SRH win the toss and opt to bat
As far as the match is concerned, after much uncertainty earlier in the day, the game went ahead. T Natarajan of SRH tested positive for COVID-19 and his close contact Vijay Shankar was also deemed unavailable along with another net bowler.
Nevertheless, the SRH fronted up for the game after all other players’s reports returned negative. Their skipper Kane Williamson opted to bat first after winning the toss. But they didn’t get off to a good start as David Warner was dismissed for a duck by Anrich Nortje in the first over of the match. The other opener Wriddhiman Saha also got out early while Kane Williamson also couldn’t last long.
DC, meanwhile, decided to bench Steve Smith with Shreyas Iyer available to bat at three. However, they have been dealt a blow with an injury to Marcus Stoinis. He walked off while bowling his second over of the match and it remains to be seen if he will come out to bat.
