DC vs SRH Dream11 Prediction: Two teams which are at extreme ends of the spectrum will take on each other today in the 11th match of this year’s IPL. Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will meet at Abu Dhabi with completely different objectives. Delhi will be looking to complete their hat-trick of wins first up while Hyderabad are still in search of their first points this season. We will preview DC vs SRH Dream11 contest.
Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings convincingly in their last match at Dubai. Batting first, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan started off brilliantly and put on 94 runs for the first wicket. Prithvi Shaw was particularly dominant and looked set for a big one before he was dismissed for 64 runs. Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer applied the finishing touches as Delhi Capitals posted 175 runs on the board. In reply, Delhi bowlers kept CSK batsmen in check right from the word go. CSK were never really in the game mainly due to the crucial strikes by the South African duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. Delhi Capitals registered a win by 44 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad faced their second defeat in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the same venue. Batting first, David Warner was playing well before he misread a delivery from Varun Chakravarthy and provided a simple caught and bowled opportunity. Manish Pandey made a half-century after Jonny Bairstow went early but Wriddhiman Saha at the other end was struggling to say the least. SRH were restricted to 142 from their 20 overs. In bowling, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan and Rashid Khan struck early blows but Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan took the game from there on. KKR chased down the score in 18 overs as SRH bowlers failed to make further penetration.
In head-to-head comparisons, Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a better record against Delhi Capitals in IPL history. SRH came out victorious on 9 occasions while DC won 6 of the 15 matches played between them. SRH have maintained a lead of 3-2 over DC in their last 5 clashes. Most importantly, Delhi Capitals beat SRH in last year’s playoffs.
The pitches at Abu Dhabi have remained interesting so far. The surface is generally slow and with huge boundaries, it is clearly the most difficult ground for power-hitting. Captains have mostly bowled first but teams batting first have won most of the matches here. Dew will still play a massive role today as temperatures drop down drastically at the night.
