Cricket Match Preview:
Two teams, Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), who seem to be going under the radar of everyone so far in the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament are going to clash with each other once again. In their first clash, SRH easily beat DC by five wickets. That cricket game was played at Delhi’s home ground, whereas this cricket game will be played at SRH’s home ground in Hyderabad.
Both teams have so far played six cricket games and won three games each. Both teams are not too far from the top four teams of the tournament, most of whom have played six or seven cricket games and won four cricket games. As a result, both cricket teams are still in contention of going through to the next round.
However, it will not be so easy to break into the top four now for these teams. CSK are at the top and chances are they will stay at the top by the time the group stage ends. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) all have better run rates and wins than DC and SRH. Hence, DC will have to stop blowing hot and cold and get some consistency in their performance.
SRH, on the other hand, are suffering from middle order woes. They do not know who will score their next runs post the dismissal of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Their middle order comprising of Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan have not shown enough form to inspire confidence. There is a case of bringing back Kane Williamson into the playing eleven as that will add more depth to their batting but that will come at a cost of Mohammad Nabi, who has been very good with the ball.
DC are coming off a good win over RCB in their last cricket game. But they will need more consistency as almost all of their wins have been followed by a loss. At the halfway mark, it will not take much to get behind the competition. Hence, Delhi will look to continue the good performance that they showed in Bengaluru. The onus of that will lie once again with their top order and Kagiso Rabada.
Cricket Match Information:
SRH and DC will take on each other in their seventh and eighth cricket game of the IPL 2019 respectively. Currently, both cricket teams are out of the top four and are on the fifth and sixth spot respectively on the points table.
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
SRH have appointed Kane Williamson as their captain on this occasion just like in previous season. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Williamson in the playing eleven for this cricket game. As a result, Mohammad Nabi will be ruled out of this cricket game.
Here is our prediction of SRH’s playing XI:
- David Warner
- Johnny Bairstow
- Kane Williamson
- Manish Pandey
- Yusuf Pathan
- Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
- Rashid Khan
- Siddharth Kaul
- Sandeep Sharma
- Vijay Shankar
- Deepak Hooda
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
DC are being led by young batsman Shreyas Iyer. They have begun well this year but have been inconsistent. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of DC’s playing XI:
- Shreyas Iyer
- Rishabh Pant
- Shikhar Dhawan
- Chris Morris
- Prithvi Shaw
- Colin Ingram
- Rahul Tewatia
- Axar Patel
- Avesh Khan
- Sandeep Lamichhane
- Kagiso Rabada
Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
Prithvi Shaw will be crucial for DC against a good bowling attack of SRH. Our prediction is of a good knock from him in this cricket game.
Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:
The pitch in Hyderabad has been very good for batting this year. The opening pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have wreaked havoc on this ground so far. Our prediction is of a score of around 180 this time around. Conditions are expected to be dry.
SRH will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They are very good in their home conditions and have a formidable record against DC in the last five cricket games. Hence, our prediction is of SRH’s victory.
Top Batsman (Prediction):
David Warner (SRH) – 50+ runs
Top Bowler (Prediction):
Rashid Khan (SRH) – 2 or more wickets
Most Sixes (Prediction):
David Warner (SRH)
Sunrisers Hyderabad – 1.60
