IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) Preview, Probable XI, Head-to-Head and Fantasy 11

Sunrisers Hyderabad holds a slight advantage in the head-to-head count over Delhi Capitals with a better record of nine wins over six defeats.

DC vs SRH Preview

Table-toppers Delhi Capitals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 11 of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sheikh Zayed Stadium of Abu Dhabi will host this game on September 29 (Tuesday) from 7:30 PM (IST) onwards. 

Both the teams have contrasting positions in the Points Table where Delhi Capitals are on the pole position with two wins out of two games. On the other hand, David Warner’s SRH are currently struggling with the last spot amongst all eight teams, after losing their first two matches.

DC are coming to this game with a winning streak of two matches. Earlier they defeated Kings XI Punjab in the super over and then, CSK comprehensively lost to them. Shreyas Iyer-led side is on the most balanced teams of this season as they have all the boxes ticked in their squad.

They faced a few injury scars after experienced players like Ishant Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin hurt themselves. With suitable substitutes performing in the last game, DC will most probably take the field with the same playing XI.

The situation of Sunrisers Hyderabad is entirely different in this tournament after they didn’t get the desired results. After a close defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they once again fell short against Kolkata Knight Riders.

After expressing disappointment from the last game’s batsmen, David Warner’s ‘Orange Army’ may drop Wriddhiman Saha and bring Vijay Shankar or Abdul Samad in the side. It would also be interesting to see if they manage to play Kane Williamson in this tie.
