In what will be the 16th game of the season in the Indian Premier League, Delhi Capitals will be playing hosts SunRisers Hyderabad on Thursday.
Delhi Capitals have an even record so far in the IPL and have to cautious or else will once again fall down spiral as they have in the last few seasons. They did start the season strongly, but still, are some ways of becoming the franchise the owners want them to be. It will be interesting to see how they tackle things in the upcoming fixtures to really test their mettle against some of the big boys in the league.
Meanwhile, SunRisers Hyderabad are one of the best teams in the IPL and that has been the case ever since they came back into the competition with a new name. With superstar batsmen such as David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, they have one of the best opening pair the tournament has ever seen in its history. They were the finalists last time out and will be looking to make amends this year with a fully fit squad.
