SRH desperate to turn things around as they take on a confident DC

Only two points separate SRH and DC in the IPL 2019 table

It has been a topsy-turvy ride for the Sunrisers Hyderabad this season with last year’s table toppers finding themselves in desperate need of a turnaround of fortunes.

 

In their last outing, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s men went down to Kings XI Punjab by six wickets at Mohali and now sit sixth on the Indian Premier League points table with six points. SRH will make a push to get into the playoff spots when they take on Delhi Capitals at home on Sunday.

 

Delhi on the other hand have registered some impressive results lately, last being a seven-wicket victory over a formidable Kolkata Knight Riders at home on Friday.

 

There were encouraging signs for Delhi with Shikhar Dhawan blasting his way to an unbeaten 97 off 63 balls, while Rishabh Pant (46) also got amongst the runs.

 

Dhawan will look to play party pooper against a team he represented for six seasons of the IPL.

 

Sunrisers were hugely successful last season thanks to their impressive performance at the death. Their economy of 8.77 was the best in the tournament last season but the Hyderabad franchise have struggled this season.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar hasn’t been successful in the last couple of seasons but Siddarth Kaul stepped up the last time around.

 

Kaul has been struggling like his captain this year as the duo are among the worst in terms of economy between overs 16 and 20.

Sunrisers’ positive results have come when both their openers – David Warner and Jonny Bairstow – have been prolific. A dip in Bairstow’s form has been detrimental as the middle order haven’t nearly done the job.

 

It’s a different case for Delhi who bat deep and apart from a couple of instances, have been resurrected by middle order batsmen’s performances.

 

Injury updates: Kane Williamson suffered a shoulder injury and SRH will be sweating on his availability. More than injury concerns, form of the bowlers will be a real concern for Hyderabad. Finding the right combination then becomes vital for the Orange Army.

 

Delhi have gained some momentum and will hope to keep doing what they are. The Capitals have a fit squad but may not look to rotate considering the rescent results.

 

Probable XIs:

 

SRH: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan/Shahbaz Nadeem, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma

 

DC: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Colin Ingram, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma
