DC hope to halt inconsistent run
- Delhi Capitals’ bowling attack impressive on paper
- Sunrisers Hyderabad need to fix batting template
Sunrisers Hyderabad have a solid middle-order core with Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran and Rahul Tripathi. However, at the top, skipper Kane Williamson has misfired so far… Sunrisers will hope to fix that as they face Delhi Capitals, a game they have odds of 1.94 to win.
Delhi Capitals’ chances of beating Sunrisers stand at 1.83. They have a solid bowling attack and the batting has stepped up well although DC would want better consistency.
Sunrisers Hyderabad hold the edge in overall record
SRH and Delhi Capitals are yet to play each other this season, but in 20 matches before this, SRH have 11 wins and DC have 9. In 2021, though, SRH lost both matches to Delhi Capitals.
SRH have been good with bat and ball this season and are favourites to win this battle.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
Of the two teams this year Sunrisers Hyderabad have had the better run, winning five out of four games as against four victories in nine games for Delhi. The contest will likely be decided by the battle between Sunrisers’ quicks against Delhi’s top-order.
Keep an eye on…
Abhishek Sharma: The Sunrisers Hyderabad opener has racked up a decent run tally without making a huge score. He is the fifth-highest run-scorer this year and SRH will be banking on him to score quicker upfront.
Prithvi Shaw: Prithvi Shaw has taken off in the powerplay overs against favourable bowling attacks and will be hoping to do it against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Shaw has a strike-rate close to 160 this season and will be crucial at the top of the order.
TIP: Abhishek Sharma has been in good touch in the last few games. Back Abhishek Sharma at 6.00 to be the top batter for SRH!
