IPL 2019: Match 16: DC vs SRH – Delhi Capitals’ Predicted Playing XI, Analysis
Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will lock horns with each other in the 16th match of the season. The Delhi team was in a shoo-in position in their last match against Kings XI Punjab but threw away the game. Delhi needed only 21 runs from 23 balls and they ended up losing eight wickets for only seven runs. In fact, the Delhi Capitals had done the same against Kolkata Knight Riders but had got away in the final over. Thus, there are some lessons to learn for the young side. We at Sportzwiki brings you the Delhi Capitals’ Predicted Playing XI.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad has been in sublime form. The Orange army has won their previous two matches and would be confident of getting past Delhi Capitals. Hyderabad is in fine form and they would like to continue their good form.
Here is Delhi Capitals’ Predicted Playing XI:
Prithvi Shaw had got out on the golden duck in the previous match. However, the talented batsman had scored a fine knock of 99 in the match against KKR.
Southpaw Shikhar Dhawan had got off to a start in the previous match but could not make a substantial score. However, Dhawan needs to work on his strike rate.
Captain Shreyas Iyer had also got off to a good start but once again could not make a good score to get his team to the finishing line.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant had played like Rishabh Pant in the previous match. However, he would like to finish the games and that he will learn from experience.
South African Colin Ingram has done a good job but he would have been disappointed when he could not close the last match against Kings XI Punjab. Thus, he would like to get going.
All-rounder Chris Morris had scalped three wickets against the Punjab franchise. However, Morris was dismissed for a golden duck and could not contribute with the bat.
Delhi will like to learn from their mistakes.
Hanuma Vihari could not add finishing touches to the Delhi’s team in the previous run-chase. In fact, Vihari will like to bat up the order.
Experienced Amit Mishra should get a chance in the playing XI. The veteran spinner was dropped from the previous match and he should be back in the final XI.
Harshal Patel has done a good job with his medium pacers. However, the Delhi bowler was on the expensive side in the previous match.
Kagiso Rabada has thus far bowled with fire in the tournament. Rabada has been accurate with his line and length and would like to continue his good show going.
Nepal’s Sandeep Lamichanne has delivered the goods in the two matches he has played. The leg-spinner was the pick of the bowlers as he had scalped two wickets.
