The 47th match of IPL 2020 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi capitals takes place today at the Dubai International Cricket Ground. In tonight’s match, Delhi capitals will correct their shortcomings and the talented Sunrisers will pick an eleven to win the match against Hyderabad and get those 2 points to qualify for the playoffs with 16 points. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, need to score a hat-trick of wins in the remaining three matches to qualify for the playoffs, depending on the results of the other teams.
The Rise and Fall of Delhi Capitals led by Shreyas Iyer in IPL 2020
The Delhi capitals, which performed remarkably well in the first half of IPL 2020, are now struggling a bit. Delhi have won 5 of the 7 matches played in the first half and have lost two of the 4 matches so far in the second half. In the previous two matches, Delhi seemed to have difficulty in selecting the eleven they would play, and now it has come to the fore that if they lose today’s match against Hyderabad, they will get hat-trick defeats.
The Delhi capitals had benched their opening batsman Prithviraj Shah for his last matches as he struggled a bit with his form. Shah replaced Ajinkya Rahane, who missed the first ball against KKR. Apart from this, Delhi made a mistake by dropping in-form bowler Anrich Nordji against Punjab, but they corrected this mistake by including him in the match against KKR. Against Kolkata, Nordje took two wickets for 27 runs.
Is the absence of senior bowler Ishant Sharma a big issue for Delhi capitals?
Apart from this, Delhi Tushar has been giving a place in the eleven playing for Deshpande in the last few matches. In the first match, Tushar performed well and caught everyone’s attention, but after that he scored about 12 runs per over. Delhi definitely feel the absence of Ishant Sharma in their bowling attack.
How has Sunrisers Hyderabad played so far in the tournament?
Speaking of Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Orange Army fell against Kings XI Punjab, who were in control of the match most of the time but they lost the match. After a quick start by David Warner and Johnny Burstow, Hyderabad’s score was 100 for 3 at the same time, but they lost 7 wickets for 14 runs. Because of this failure, their path to the playoffs has become much harder.
