Toss update

Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the toss and they have elected to field first against Delhi Capitals at home. SRH will look to do the league double over DC tonight, having won the reverse leg against them at Kotla earlier in the tournament.

19:24 hrs IST

DC’s predicted XI

elhi could bring in Colin Munro at the top of the order as the Kiwi is an impact batsman can take the match away from the opposition with his power hitting. The Kiwi will be a good addition in place of Keemo Paul, who has been quite expensive with the ball. Munro can bowl seam up if needed.

Predicted XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Munro, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Colin Ingram, Rahul Tewatia, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ishant Sharma

19:19 hrs IST

SRH’s predicted XI

Captain Kane Williamson has been waiting in the sidelines since Afghan all-rounder Mohammed Nabi has been making useful contributions with the ball and bat. But the time has come for Williamson to make a comeback and provide more mettle to the batting line-up.

Predicted XI - David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma

19:12 hrs IST

Player battle - Pant vs Khan

Wicket-keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been rather inconsistent in the tournament so far and he will be eyeing a good show against SRH. But it won’t be an easy task for the southpaw as he will have to deal with couple of quality Afghanistan spinners. Rashid Khan holds a decent record against Pant in the previous editions of the IPL. Off 30 Khan deliveries, Pant has scored 45 runs but he has been dismissed once as well.

19:07 hrs IST

Player battle - Shaw vs Bhuvneshwar

Young Delhi opener Prithvi Shaw has the ability to take the game away from the opposition with his hard-hitting up front. SRH’s premier fast-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be tasked with sending him into the hut early. Off 20 Bhuvi deliveries, Shaw has hit just 13 runs and he has also been dismissed by the SRH bowler once.

18:59 hrs IST

Player battle - Ishant vs Pathan

In DC’s last match against KKR, Ishant Sharma set the tone for his team by picking a wicket on the first ball of the game. Ishant returned with outstanding figures of 1/21 in four against in that game and Delhi will be hopeful of a similar performance from their most experienced bowler. Yusuf Pathan holds a good record against Ishant as he has scored 36 off 20 deliveries and he hasn’t been dismissed even once by him so far.

18:52 hrs IST

Player battle - Bairstow vs Rabada

Kagiso Rabada has been easily the best pacer in the IPL thus far. He has been economical and also been among the wickets to lead DC’s charge in the league stage of the competition. Against SRH, he will have to contend with Jonny Baistow, who along with Warner, is leading the race for orange cap. Rabada has shown that he can put breaks on hard-hitters like Bairstow (read Andre Russell) and DC will hope he brings his A game against the SRH opener.

18:46 hrs IST

Player battle - Warner vs Axar

This is one contest that will play a big role in which side comes out victorious in the match. Warner has been in sensational form for SRH and if he gets going then DC will find it hard to get something out of the match. Axar has managed to dismiss him in the past twice but Warner has scored 73 runs off 46 deliveries from him. So, this see-saw battle could go either way.

18:40 hrs IST

Out-of-form bowlers

On the bowling front, the pace trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma and Siddharth Kaul have been decent while the Afghan spin duo of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi have also been impressive in the middle overs. But they failed to contain Kings XI Punjab batsmen, especially KL Rahul, the other day. Hyderabad will hope that their bowlers give a good account of themselves against the Delhi batsmen on Saturday.

18:30 hrs IST

Over-reliance on openers

Although the Sunrisers looked threatening in their first three games when David Warner and Jonny Bairstow stitched century-plus stands, once the duo got out cheaply, the Hyderabad middle-order was in complete disarray. Sunrisers’ middle-order fell apart against Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab in their last two games with the likes of Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan falling flat.

18:20 hrs IST

SRH eye league double

In contrast, Sunrisers Hyderabad have suffered defeats in their previous two games and would be desperate to get back to winning ways. Hyderabad will draw confidence from the fact that they had thrashed Delhi when the two teams met last time in Ferozshah Kotla. Having restricted Delhi to 129 for eight, the Sunrisers achieved the target in 18.3 overs, handing the home team a five-wicket defeat.

18:10 hrs IST

Delhi’s good run of form

Besides Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant, skipper Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw have also been among runs and the Delhi batsmen would be looking to fire in unison against Hyderabad. Even Delhi’s bowling unit comprising Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Ishant Sharma did well to restrict KKR on a good batting track.

18:00 hrs IST

Hello and welcome
