The IPL 2020 season, the 13th edition of the cash-rich cricket league has its 11th match on 29th September, when Delhi Capitals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Delhi Capitals have etched a stellar start to their IPL 2020 campaign, with back to back victories against KXIP and CSK. Prithvi Shaw excelled with his bat in the last game against Chennai with a smashing half-century, along with impressive batting from Shikhar Dhawan, Rishab Pant as well as the skipper Shreyas Iyer.
The DC bowling squad was marvellous in defending their total against CSK- thanks to spectacular performances from Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. Both Amit Mishra and Axar Patel also landed economic bowling figures.
Full Squad: Shreyas Iyer (c), Ravichandran Ashwin, Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Sams, Lalit Yadav, Keemo Paul, Alex Carey (wk), Amit Mishra, Sandeep Lamichhane, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Ishant Sharma, Mohit Sharma, Tushar Deshpande, Anrich Nortje.
The 2016 champions are struggling to register their first win on UAE and have lost both of their first two games versus RCB and KKR. While Manish Pandey was impressive against Kolkata with scoring a fifty, along with the skipper David Warner as the opener, the bowling squad failed to defend the KKR batting squad, who ended the chase by the 18th over.
Full Squad: David Warner (c), Rashid Khan, Sanjay Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Abdul Samad, Mitchell Marsh, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Mohammad Nabi, Fabian Allen, Abhishek Sharma, Basil Thampi, Billy Stanlake, Sandeep Bavanaka, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Virat Singh, T Natarajan, Kane Williamson, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Siddarth Kaul, Priyam Garg.
Waging odds: Delhi Capitals (1.80) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (1.95)
Delhi Capitals are the waging favourites and are priced at 1.80, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹180
Sunrisers Hyderabad are priced at 1.95 and are the underdogs. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹195 if they come out as winners.
DC will be full of confidence due to their flawless run in the tournament. A hard-hitting Shaw-Dhawan opening duo will have support from a strong middle order of the skipper Shreyas Iyer and Marcus Stoinis. However, the unavailability of both R Ashwin and Ishant Sharma is a blow to the bowling squad, but Rabada, Axar Patel and Nortje will make efforts to restrict the SRH batsmen.
On the other hand, having failed to win any matches in the tournament yet, SRH will come in full force against DC today to secure their first two points. The plus point for them is the return of Kane Williamson in the starting 11, so there will be less pressure on the Warner-Bairstow opening duo. Bhuvi and Khaleel Ahmed will thrive for more restrictive bowling with support from Rashid Khan and Nabi to tie up the opposition batting lineup. Sunrisers Hyderabad will register their first victory.
