DC vs SRH: Who will win?

After two nail-biting matches held in Sharjah and Dubai respectively, IPL will move to Abu Dhabi, where it will host the clash between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. This match in itself is a contrasting match-up. Delhi has got off to a great start in IPL 2020, winning all of their 2 matches played so far. Whereas David Warner led SRH is yet to find the right combination. Having lost all two of their opening fixtures SRH will be hoping to regroup and get their 2020 campaign up and running. That being said they lack the required team balance and quality in the domestic middle order and hence for that reason, they are expected to fall behind to the much stronger Delhi Capitals. So if you are in for online IPL betting, place your money on DC.

Strength

Delhi Capitals:

  • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-4 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Hetmyer and Stoinis makes them a strong force.
  • Despite the injury concerns regarding Ashwin and Ishant, their bowling unit performed well above their weight.
  • Kagiso Rabada is in terrific form. That provides a major boost to the already in-form bowling unit.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • The best opening pair among 8 teams. Record of Warner-Bairstow speaks for themselves.
  • On paper, they have a good enough bowling unit.

Weakness

Delhi Capitals:

  • They need one domestic pacer to step up to the occasion. Both Mohit Sharma and Avesh Khan were targeted by the opposition batsmen in the last two matches.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Worst middle-order among 8 teams. After Warner, Bairstow, and Pandey, there are no good enough players to inflict greater damage on the opposition.
  • SRH have good enough young finishers in their squad, in the form of Virat Singh and Abdul Samad. Despite that, they decided to bench them for the first two matches. If that continues even today, they don’t stand a chance to win this match.

Win Prediction:

  • DC- 70%
  • SRH-30%

Betting Odds:

Bet365: DC- 1.90, SRH- 1.90
Betway: DC- 1.83, SRH- 1.83

DC to win the match

  • DC has a very strong team and they have found their right combination quite early in the tournament itself, whereas SRH is still searching for their best eleven, due to this reason DC is expected to have a major head start over SRH as per today match prediction.
  • DC has a well-settled batting unit. It will be tough for the SRH bowling unit to breach through them.
  • SRH’s middle order is a huge worry, if Warner and Bairstow departs early, then they are in very serious trouble. For DC they have a strong force in Kagiso Rabada who is potent enough to breach this Warner-Bairstow partnership.

  • Matches Played- 15
  • SRH – 09

DC VS SRH MATCH PREDICTION

After two days of drama and excitement in Sharjah and Dubai, the city of Abu Dhabi will host the game of extreme ends. The game where the table-toppers Delhi Capitals takes on the team languishing down at the bottom, Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both teams have had a contrasting start to their tournament so far. And it falls down to one major factor- team selection. DC who has enjoyed the greater success was very sharp with the team selection whereas SRH, despite having enough players in their armoury decided to field one of their weak eleven. And rightly so SRH has too many problems to address ahead of this match. The consistent failure of their middle-order points fingers to one thing- it’s high time they bring in Kane Williamson if he is fit. He can bring in the much-needed stability in the middle order, which SRH is lacking now. And contrary to the popular expectations, he has a tremendous average and strike rate in the death overs as well. Even then he won’t be David Warner’s first preference as his Afghan counterpart Mohammad Nabi, is most likely to seal that spot owing to his expertise with the ball.

Another selection blunder that SRH did in the last match that cost them badly is the selection of Wriddhiman Saha. Despite having young guns like Virat Singh and Abdul Samad, who could strike at above 150+, they decided to go with Saha. Unless and until Warner and Bayliss correct these blunders, they stand no chance to beat this strong DC team.

DC on the other hand has fewer problems to worry about. Their only major concern will be regarding their domestic pacer. Both Mohit Sharma and Avesh Khan who featured in matches one and two respectively as the replacement for injured Ishant Sharma failed to make an impact. If one of them can step-up, then DC can fill in their only visible weakness. On the team selection front, both Ishant Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin have recovered and have started training with the team, but as per reports they won’t be hurried into the eleven and hence they are most likely to miss this encounter.

DC Playing 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Amith Mishra, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan.

SRH Playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson/Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg/Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan

  1. Kagiso Rabada is a wicket-taking machine. Moreover, he loves taking heaps of wicket at death. With a weak SRH batting line-up in the opposition, he expected to have a great game.
  2. All of DC’s top four Indian batsmen are in fine touch, especially Prithvi Shaw and Shreyas Iyer. Make sure to take at least two out of those four in your fantasy teams
  3. He may not have had a great IPL 2020 till now as per his own standards, but the SRH captain David Warner’s overall IPL consistency is tough to look beyond. He is due for a big score this season. If you are in for online cricket betting, gamble on him to score big today.
  4. Amit Mishra and Manish Pandey are consistent IPL performers, leave them out of your fantasy teams at your own risk.

DC vs SRH Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

This is the toughest part. UAE conditions have been un-predictable so far. Despite the presence of dew in the second half, most games were won by the team batting first. This is one part were captains would be scratching their heads at. That being said, looking purely at the conditions, batting second seems the most suitable decision, even though the results of the past 10 days suggests otherwise. Anything below 170 should be easy to chase down.

If Delhi Capitals bats first: 160-170

If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 140-150
