The Sunrisers Hyderabad have been on a batting rampage this season with three 200+ scores in the season so far. In their last match against RCB, where they registered the highest-ever total (287/3), their opener, Travis Head, took their bowlers to the cleaners with a sensational ton. Heinrich Klaasen, who was promoted to no.3 considering the brilliant batting conditions, also smashed a brilliant 67 off just 31 deliveries to help SRH break their own record.

2020 runner-ups Delhi Capitals have found the groove after two consecutive wins and hopping to no.6 in the table. In their last match against the Titans, DC bowlers got things underway for their team by dismissing four batters in powerplay. The pace line-up of Mukesh Kumar (3 wickets) and Ishant Sharma (2 wickets) dismantled the Titans’ batting lineup as they silenced the Gujarat crowd, restricting their opponents to their lowest total of 89 runs.

With the SRH batters in fiery form this season, it will be interesting to see how they manage to unleash their sting against the Capitals. With the comeback of Delhi’s opener David Warner still uncertain, the Capitals are likely to feature their young gun Jake Fraser McGurk in the opening duo alongside Prithvi Shaw.

Jake Fraser McGurk, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Abhishek Porel, Tristan Stubbs, Shai Hope, Sumit Kumar, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar.
