Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
Indian Premier League 2020, Match 11
Date & Time: 29 September, 2020 at 7:30PM IST
Sheik Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE
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.
Bet365: DC- 1.90, SRH- 1.90
Betway: DC- 1.83, SRH- 1.83
DC to win the match
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in UAE)
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
Expert free tip for Fantasy cricket and IPL betting tips
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
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.
DC- Shreyas Iyer
DC captain has been great touch in the last two matches. With 130kmph kind of pacers lined-up in the opposition, Iyer is expected to be at his best.
SRH- David Warner
David Warner is one of the most consistent batsmen in IPL history. He is due for a big score in this IPL. With his team languishing down at the bottom, the chances of him taking the responsibility of the entire batting unit on his shoulders is quite high.
Other Prominent options: Jonny Bairstow, Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson(if he plays)
DC- Kagiso Rabada
This man needs no introduction. He is one of the best fast bowler going on in the world right now. With a weak SRH batting line-up in the opposition, he is expected to take many wickets. As for cricket betting tips, he is the man worth investing your money in.
SRH- Rashid Khan
Star bowler for SRH in the past couple of years, he hasn't been at his absolute best in this year so far. But as the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Expect some magic from the spin magician.
