Delhi Capitals pose a major challenge to Sunrisers
The fortunes of the two IPL teams couldn’t have been more divergent. Sunrisers Hyderabad have appeared listless in this season so far while Delhi Capitals have been ruthless with bat and ball. Last season, Delhi had edged out Sunrisers for the third place in the league and if the beginning of this season is anything to go by, Delhi have maintained good form while Hyderabad have dwindled further. The odds for Hyderabad pulling one over Delhi is 2.00.
Delhi, on the other hand, have a complete team with solid batsmen and quality bowlers. The leadership in the side has also been top-notch and they appear good enough to test a lot of teams this IPL. Their odds of a win against SRH stand at 1.80.
Sunrisers lead in the overall numbers category against Delhi
The overall head to head record between these teams is led by Sunrisers Hyderabad with a 9-6 win-loss record against Delhi. While SRH have been dominant in these games, history matters little when these teams play again this year. Delhi won two of the three matches between these teams last year and are all set to add to their overa tally to this season.
RECOMMENDED BET: Delhi Capitals are strong across different departments while Hyderabad have struggled after their top three and DC’s odds stand at 1.80 in beating SRH
SRH have won three of the last five matches between these teams but again recent form counters them as they have two losses in two games this IPL season. Delhi, meanwhile, have a flawless record this year and will look to add to it.
Keep an eye on…
Delhi pacers: Led by Kagiso Rabada and ably supported by Anrich Nortje, Delhi Capitals have a terrific bowling attack that could trouble Sunrisers Hyderabad’s middle and lower order. Getting past David Warner and Jonny Bairstow will be the bigger struggle for Delhi Capitals.
Rashid Khan factor: The Afghanistan spinner has been countered by teams with a play-safe appraoch. Not taking on Rashid Khan has denied him wickets and Delhi might adopt a similar approach. However, they do have Shimron Hetmyer and Rishabh Pant capable of taking on the leggie.
