SRH vs DC MPL Team: Delhi Capitals who have suffered back-to-back defeats against Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab are set to meet Sunrisers Hyderabad who failed to chase a meagre 126 against KXIP in their last match. The beforementioned point was to stress on how important winning is for both the teams as Delhi, though certain for playoffs, would want to finish in the Top-2 and for SRH it is the fight for survival as they need to win their remaining three contests to finish with 14 points, the bare minimum to have a chance to making it to playoffs. The last time these two teams met, Sunrisers batted first and posted a score of 162/4 which Delhi couldn’t chase and fell short by 15 runs. SRH also lead 10-6 when it comes to head-to-head between the two teams.
Fixture: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals, Match 47, IPL 2020
Date: Tuesday, 27th October 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue: Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: 160 has been the score the teams batting first have been targeting off late and both teams will go in the match with that target and will reassess at the half-way stage in their innings. The tracks have got uneven which means that the slower-bouncers and cutters are coming in handy for the pacers in this game.
Team News SRH: Not being able to chase a modest score will have its say in the line-up and it will be a newcomer Abdul Samad who might face the axe and Abhishek Sharma is likely to replace him as apart from being a decent batsman he is also a more than able left-arm spin.
Team News DC: Delhi dropped Prithvi Shaw and included Ajinkya Rahane in the last game but the move flopped as Rahane got out for a duck but DC are likely to give him one more game before they change him. Tushar Deshpande has been very expensive in the last three meetings leaking runs at over 12 and he is likely to be replaced by Harshal Patel. Let’s take a look at HYD vs DEL MPL fantasy cricket tips now.
HYD Playing 11 (Predicted)
1 David Warner (capt)
2 Jonny Bairstow (wk)
3 Manish Pandey
4 Vijay Shankar
5 Priyam Garg
6 Abhishek Sharma
7 Jason Holder
8 Rashid Khan
9 Sandeep Sharma
10 Khaleel Ahmed
11 T Natarajan
DEL Playing 11 (Predicted)
1 Shikhar Dhawan
2 Ajinkya Rahane
3 Shreyas Iyer (capt)
4 Rishabh Pant (wk)
5 Shimron Hetmyer
6 Marcus Stoinis
7 Harshal Patel
8 Axar Patel
9 R Ashwin
10 Kagiso Rabada
11 Anrich Nortje
Rashid Khan: The Afghan spinner has been the biggest match-winner for Sunrisers this season and his overall figures are 14 wickets in 10 matches at an economy rate of only 5. The last time he bowled against Delhi he won the Man of The Match award for his figures of 3/14 where he dismisses three od Delhi’s biggest batsmen in Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant. Rashid is the man you trust in important matches. He could be a key in SRH vs DC Today Match Prediction match.
Shreyas Iyer: The Delhi Capitals captain has been an inspirational leader and gets most of the decision right and is contributing with the bat also and has 343 runs at an average of 38 and strike-rate of 131. Iyer likes taking on the spinners and he will be the man who would look to target Rashid as he likes to hit straight and that’s the best ploy against the Afghan spinner.
David Warner: Sunrisers captain has not been in the best of form and even then, has good numbers (264 runs at an average of 40 and a strike-rate of 128) imagine what he will do when he bats at his best. Warner made a good contribution of 45 the last time he batted against Delhi his team will be looking at him to tackle the solid combination of Rabada and Nortje. He may also bring out his reverse-slogs against the duo of Axar and Ashwin.
Kagiso Rabada: The holder of Purple Cap obviously has the highest wickets (21) but just have a look at his bowling strike-rate of 11.3! This means that Rabada takes one wicket in every two overs he bowls and that’s what makes him such a massive threat. The South African speedster would know that there are others who are closing in in him and would want to come up with another strong show.
X-Factors – Differential Picks
Jason Holder: Experts were surprised to see Holder replacing Kane Williamson instead of T20 specialist Mohammad Nabi but the West Indies’ Red Ball captain has shown he good he can be. In the two matches he has played, he has taken 5 wickets and has only gone at 7.5 runs per over. He gets a lot of bounce and bowls the in-between length which makes him difficult to slog against.
Shikhar Dhawan: He failed against KKR and that was ok (considering the law of averages) after his two mesmerizing hundreds and would once again be a threat now that he has met a failure. Dhawan has 471 runs at a strike-rate of 149 and would be itching to add to the numbers as he is one of the contenders for the Orange Cap.
