Two dynamic openers, a young Indian middle-order batsman, world’s finest T20 bowler, a highly talented Indian pace attack. Hyderabad has the perfect combination required to dominate T20 games.
But the franchise has seen three defeats in six games in IPL 2019 thanks to some average performance in crunch moments. On the other hand, Delhi has time again proved that they can be a tough opponent in Indian Premier League season 12 and are riding on good confidence.
The Hyderabad wicket should offer assistance to batsmen and do expect a decent score on the board. However the spinners shouldn’t be discarded.
The important news for Delhi is Shikhar Dhawan has regained his mojo which means their batting strength has enhanced. Pant is growing in confidence too.
Morris and Ishant are offering Rabada the ideal assistance and if the spinners step up, this could be a mighty strong bowling unit.

With an astonishing innings of 97 not out Shikhar Dhawan has roared again in the Indian Premier League. He has played a lot at this venue and now after swapping teams, this is his homecoming. What does he hold in store for his previous franchise?
With the spotlight on Kagiso Rabada, Delhi pace bowler, Ishant Sharma has flown under the radar so far. He has just five wickets in IPL season 12 but has done effective damage with the new ball.
He can be lethal against Warner as Ishant can take the ball away from him.
