Sunrisers Hyderabad is looking a threatening side after winning their last 4 matches in IPL 2020. They knocked the fancied RCB out of the competition and it seems they are not done yet. The 2016 IPL champs have bowled exceedingly well and their batsmen have also come to the party. SRH certainly looks the favourites to reach another IPL final and face Mumbai Indians.
Delhi Capitals has lost winning momentum in the second half of the competition. DC was given a hammering by Mumbai Indians in the Qualifier 1. Their batting line up needs to stand up in the knockout match and show their mettle on the big stage. If DC can beat SRH they will reach their first-ever IPL final and they will not get any better motivation to play at their best.

Injury and Availability News
Shimron Hetmyer is likely to feature in the Q2 against SRH to strengthen the batting of DC. He can come in place of fast bowler Daniel Sams who once again went wicketless in the last match. If this happens then either one of Prithvi Shaw or Ajinkya Rahane may sit out as DC will play an extra Indian pace bowler.
On the other hand, SRH currently has all bases covered and are expected to go in with the same side that beat RCB. However, one change that can be made is the inclusion of Wriddhiman Saha in place of Shreevats Goswami.

Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad– Top Fantasy Picks
Jason Holder: You just can’t keep Jason Holder out from your fantasy side after his brilliant all-round show against RCB. He picked 3 wickets in the first half then later backed hit up with a match-winning cameo in the chase with the bat.
Kane Williamson: The cool and calm Kane Williamson is gold dust for SRH in the middle order. The New Zealand captain showed his class in the last match and took his side home. Williamson should be a sure shot pick in your squad as he always scores runs in a big match.
Shikhar Dhawan: At the top order, Dhawan is the most important batsman for his side and he needs to bat sensibly up front against swing bowlers of SRH. Dhawan will be hungry to lead the charge for his side with the bat and should surely feature in your fantasy XI.
Kagiso Rabada: The wicket-taker of the Delhi Capitals will be striving to knock off the top order of SRH. Rabada too should be a sure-shot pick in your fantasy XI as he has been ruthless with his performances in every game.
R Ashwin: After a terrific last game with the ball Ashwin too should be part of your side. The Abu Dhabi pitch has assisted the spinners and the seasoned off-spinner will again be a handful in the middle overs against SRH.
