IPL 2019, Match 16: Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Match Prediction, Feroz Shah Kotla
We’re expecting to witness a couple of changes from Delhi Capitals (DC), however, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) might appear with the same team they’ve fielded against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). On the other side, Capitals batters have shown somewhat a discipline. Meanwhile, we have got a lot in the store, apart from the match prediction for DC vs SRH much-awaited contest at the Feroz Shah Kotla, New Delhi.
For SRH, a masterclass from David Warner, Jonny Bairstow significantly boosted the Hyderabad camp. The duo has been innovative during their stroke-filled centuries respectively.
Right from the beginning of the IPL 2019, Capitals were optimistic about their chances for the ongoing season and they’ve performed and proved it in patches. And, on the other side, solid Sunrisers have the logjam to control the promising hosts on April 4 in New Delhi.
The recent loss against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) has somewhat dented the morale of Capitals while facing a batting collapse.
On the other side, Sunrisers are flying as their openers have forged hat-trick of hundred-plus run partnerships.
By considering all the parameters Delhi has ample chances to give tough time to Sunrisers. But again, they need to give their cent per cent.
With two Afghanistani cricketers; Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi ruling the roost, Sunrisers have faced the problem in off-colour Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He has not only leaked runs but failed to pick wickets at the same time.
Well, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma looked authoritative in approach.
Moreover, it would be an enticing battle to witness between Kagiso Rabada and David Warner. It’s more about the exuberance of youth and exulted experience.
The runners-up for season eleven of the IPL have all the bases covered. Apart from the niceties of the T20 leg, Kane Williamson’s inclusion will be a vital decision for the SRH camp.
