Of late, everyone seems to be keeping up with the latest sporting tournament, the IPL and this is your one stop for all the info on the upcoming match and the top picks for the IPL fantasy league.
An in-form Delhi Capitals will look to carry forward the momentum when they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal today. While SRH will look to come back strongly after losing their last game to Punjab, DC will be riding high on confidence after being Kolkata at the Eden Gardens on Friday.
The last game between Hyderabad and Punjab saw the SRH batsmen struggle on the slowish wicket and they will be more than happy to return to their home ground. Also, it is believed that regular skipper Kane Williamson will be back in the line-up and that will help strengthen the batting which has depended heavily on the duo of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner at the top.
For Delhi, it was an important game to win as they beat Kolkata chasing a tricky score of 178. More than the win, it was the convincing manner in which Shikhar Dhawan (97*) and Rishabh Pant (46) batted that will give the likes of head coach Ricky Ponting and advisor Sourav Ganguly confidence.
It will not be easy for DC to take on the Orange Army in their own backyard, but DC have the bowling in Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada and Chris Morris to take on the challenge. It will be interesting to see whether the spinners like Axar Patel can create an impression like a Rashid Khan has or Mohammad Nabi has for SRH.
While the batting has looked good in the last game for DC, they will need to be at the top of their game against an SRH unit that is considered one of the best bowling units in the competition with Rashid, Nabi and Bhuvneshwar Kumar leading the show.
From the Hyderabadi team, picking Rashid Khan and David Warner would be a wise decision. Rashid Khan is one of the best performing leg-spinner in the IPL and having a great bowler by your side can never go wrong. Over his 32 match IPL career, he has taken 39 wickets, making him a promising choice. David Warner is an explosive batsman with more than just a few tricks up his sleeve. Jonny Bairstow is another consistent player you've got to pick.
On to Delhi Capitals, choose one their bowlers- Axar Patel who has shown consistent performance and is a great expert at the game. His game sense allows him to manipulate any situation in his favour. Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan on the other hand are great run scorers who are adept at batting, can offer a great performance to their teams and give an exciting twist to the match.
