DC vs SRH IPL 2024 Match 35 Match Ups

Delhi Capitals will face off against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 35th match of IPL 2024 at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.

Currently, DC are placed in the sixth spot on the IPL points tally with six points from seven games and have won their last two games. 

Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad have shown supreme form so far and won three games in succession to be placed fourth in the IPL points table. Pat Cummins and his side scored a whopping 287 from 20 overs against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru in their previous game. Hence, a high-octane is expected in the upcoming fixture as the fans will get to see some sumptuous battle between some prominent batters and bowlers.

The upcoming clash will be the 24th game between these two sides in the IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad are slightly ahead, as they have won 12 out of 23 games and Delhi Capitals have won 11.

  1. Prithvi Shaw vs Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been SRH’s go-to bowler in terms of wickets. However, he has taken just three wickets in IPL 2024 so far. The right-arm seamer could stop Prithvi Shaw from going all out in the Powerplay. Bhuvi has dismissed Shaw twice in the IPL, while the latter strikes at 100 in this battle. The tally includes 22 dot balls.

  1. Abhishek Sharma vs Khaleel Ahmed

The left-hander is matching the power-hitting of Head and has scored runs. He has scored 211 runs at a strike rate of 197.19. It will be important for DC to stop him. However, Abhishek has a weakness against left-armers and Khaleel Ahmed can certainly exploit it. He has bowled three balls to Abhishek and has dismissed him once in the IPL.

  1. Rishabh Pant vs Pat Cummins

One exciting battle in DC vs SRH will be between the two captains. Pat Cummins, who is the leading wicket-taker for SRH will be up against Rishabh Pant, who is the leading scorer for DC. Cummins has dismissed Pant twice in ODIs. In the IPL, he has dismissed him once in 15 balls, whereas Pant has scored 19 runs off him.

  1. Heinrich Klaasen vs Kuldeep Yadav

One important battle will be between the match-winners of either side. Heinrich Klaasen will be the biggest threat for DC and can take the game away from them in the middle overs.

But, he will have to face in-form Kuldeep Yadav, who has a number of variations. The wrist-spinner has dismissed Klaasen twice in ODIs. He has bowled 12 balls to Klaasen in the IPL and given away 11 runs. But, he hasn’t let the South African star get away.

  1. Travis Head vs Ishant Sharma in Test

Travis Head slammed a 39-ball ton in the last game against Royal Challengers Bengaluru and has been in red-hot form. He will look to capitalize on it even more and take advantage of the shorter boundaries in Delhi.

But, DC need to find someone who can dismiss him early. Ishant Sharma is one such bowler who has a good record against the left-hander. These two have never met in the IPL, but Ishant has dismissed Head three times in Test cricket.

Runs 55
Balls 84
Dismissals 3
Average 18.3
Strike-Rate 65.5

Another big battle will be in the powerplay. David Warner, who missed the last game, is likely to come back and he is in good form this season. But, he will be up against his former teammate and a bowler who has good numbers against him, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

This will be a key battle in the game. Bhuvneshwar has dismissed Warner four times in international cricket. In the IPL, Warner has only scored 18 runs off 29 balls he has faced him at a strike rate of just 62.1 and the Indian seamer has dismissed him once.
