After two action-packed games, it’s the unbeaten Delhi Capitals, who will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad on September 29 (Tuesday). The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi is up for a good contest as these two points will be crucial going into this tournament. We bring you today’s match prediction from the Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals game.
Both teams have had contrasting fortunes so far in the tournament. While Delhi will be oozing with confidence with two back-to-back wins, Hyderabad are yet to taste victory. They have bigger problems to solve in their batting order.
The middle-order has looked extremely wobbly which might prompt them to include Kane Williamson in the side. The Sunrisers also lack firepower in their lower-order which will hurt them badly. The World Cup-winning coach Trevor Bayliss will have to work out some magic and strive the right conditions as they aim to return to winning ways.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will have in a happy space after a rollicking start to the tournament. Despite missing senior pros like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma due to injuries; the players have rallied well under head coach Ricky Ponting.
The Shreyas Iyer-led side will hope for another winning effort as they aim to consolidate their position at the top of the points table.
