Indian Premier League IPL 2019: Delhi Capitals aim to avoid collapse woes against rampant Sunrisers Hyderabad

first_img New Delhi: Summer has arrived in Delhi. The temperature is rising and the heat is well and truly on. For Delhi Capitals, they will be feeling the heat even more. A collapse of seven wickets for eight runs when they needed just 23 off 21 to win against Kings XI Punjab will rankle for a long time. How will Delhi Capitals bounce back? Their task heading into the next match at the Kotla will not be easy, considering the team that they are about to face is coming off a massive 118-run win over Virat Kohli’s side. Their opponents, Sunrisers Hyderabad have been boosted by the top order masterclass of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Both batsmen scored centuries and shared a record opening stand to decimate Royal Challengers Bangalore in such a way that they lost the match by one run solely to Jonny Bairstow’s bat alone. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batting is an added bonus to their power-packed bowling line-up. With Mohammad Nabi complimenting Rashid Khan, the spin duo compliment the bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma. For Delhi Capitals, they will need to shore up their lower middle order if they are to avoid such collapses in the near future. The bowling has been boosted by Kagiso Rabada but even he conceded 10 runs in the last two balls of the Kings XI Punjab innings which proved to be costly.  Team combinations With the match being played at the Feroz Shah Kotla, the pitch might once again assist the spinners. Will Delhi Capitals risk playing Amit Mishra in place of Avesh Khan? With the lower middle order struggling a bit, they might look to get Manjot Kalra or Jalaj Saxena to give them a bit of a buffer. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, might not be wanting to make too many changes. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s side looks settled and they will be aiming to sustain the momentum. Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Colin Ingram, Hanuma Vihari/Manjot Kalra, Amit Mishra/Jalaj Saxena, Harshal Patel, Chris Morris, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada Sunrisers Hyderbad (Playing XI): David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar(c), Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul Who will win? On form, Sunrisers Hyderabad look set to continue their winning run but Delhi Capitals can put up a strong performance in front of their home fans. Weather and pitch The weather is expected to get hotter with day temperatures touching close to 40 degrees and night temperatures hovering close to 23. Stadium and timings The match will be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla and it will start at 8:00 PM IST. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
