The 15th edition of IPL is all set to hit a 50 with the game between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
It’s the business end of the tournament as the second half is going on in full force, and these two teams involved here have to buck up.
The Kane Williamson-led side is coming off a loss to the Chennai Super Kings in their previous game, and their bowling attack has gone for runs in two games in a row. Sunrisers Hyderabad are in fifth place in the points table with 10 points after five wins in nine games.
The Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, were defeated by the Lucknow Super Giants in a close match, and they are presently in seventh place in the points table with four wins in nine games. The Rishabh Pant-led team seems to have discovered their perfect playing combination, and the same XI is expected to start this encounter.

The previous game at Brabourne Stadium was a nail-biter that went down to the wire. The pitch was ideal for batting and a high scoring game could yet again up on the cards.
Both DC and SRH have not lost a single game at the Brabourne this season and would be looking to maintain this record. The captain who wins the toss will most likely bowl first, as has been the case throughout the tournament.
Despite only appearing in 7 games, David Warner is Delhi Capitals’ leading run scorer and has scored three back-to-back half-centuries this season so far. Warner has already racked up 264 runs in seven games this season, and he is projected to increase to that total.
T Natarajan has picked 17 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 17.82, an economy of 8.65, and is the leading wicket-taker for SRH.
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar/Jagadeesha Suchith, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.
