The two teams are on different ends of the spectrum with Delhi Capitals(DC) winning both their matches so far while SunRisers Hyderabad(SRH) is the only team in IPL 2020 not to get a win yet.
SunRisers Hyderabad(SRH) has always been a top-heavy side with a weak middle-order. This is never a secret. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow did all the work for the last year scoring barrel of runs which made the job of Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar and Mohammad Nabi that much easier.
SunRisers Hyderabad(SRH), however, has been completely off the boil so far with their big names yet to set the stage alight.
Kane Williamson, who declared himself fit and available, An international captain who has been so successful all over the globe is likely to help in crunch situations slightly better than someone of lesser repute.
On paper, Delhi Capitals(DC) definitely goes into Match 11 of IPL 2020 as firm favourites. Their openers, Shaw and Dhawan are in prime form, while Iyer, Pant and Stoinis to have looked in good touch. Pant and Iyer, in particular, have a terrific record against Hyderabad’s No.1 spinner Rashid Khan and that could define the match.
Delhi Capitals(DC) bowlers have certainly looked the part. Rabada and Nortje were exemplary in the match against Chennai, while Axar Patel and Amit Mishra too were superb. In short, Delhi seems like a team with all bases covered.
