The Delhi Capitals take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Sunday in Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League ( IPL) 2020. The match would be telecasted live from 7:30pm onwards.
PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
Over the past few weeks, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have been completely sensational, and on the back of four consecutive wins, they head into Qualifier 2. During this winning streak, they defeated both the Mumbai Indians and the Delhi Capitals, who are the only other remaining teams in IPL 2020.
SRH’s bowling attack did the same, with T Natarajan and Rashid Khan picking up 35 wickets between them, despite losing the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mitchell Marsh to injury. With an epic partnership, the duo of Kane Williamson and Jason Holder held their nerve against RCB, though David Warner was also in excellent form.
Their rivals, the Delhi Capitals, are not in the best shape. With their batsmen unable to reproduce their early-season form, they have won just one of their last six games. In recent games, Kagiso Rabada, who wore the Purple Cap for almost the entire tournament, was woeful, which was detrimental to their fortunes. They will need the Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer duo to come up with the goods against a well-rounded Rashid Khan-led SRH bowling attack.
In both their IPL 2020 fixtures against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Delhi Capitals have been on the receiving end of thumping defeats. In this IPL, Rashid Khan spun a web around their batting unit, which blew hot and cold. However, this high-octane game’s setting makes it an even match.
We should be in for another cracking play-off game in this IPL with a spot in the final hanging in the balance.
The weather is expected to be slightly cloudy tomorrow. The visibility would be about 10 km, i.e. 6 miles, and 1016 mb of atmospheric pressure. The temperature during the day is going to hit 32 ° c and at night the temperature is going to drop to 26 ° c. Without precipitation and cloud covering 28 percent of the atmosphere, it will be dry, the humidity will be around 47 percent.
The pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium is, as seen in the Eliminator, slightly on the slower side. Although with the new ball there is some swing on offer, the spinners have proven to be deadly on this surface with the square limits helping their cause.
