IPL 2020, DC vs SRH, Delhi Capital vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Players to Watch Out For
The table-toppers Delhi Capitals team will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday. Both teams have won both their matches at different ends of the spectrum with Delhi capitals while Sunrisers Hyderabad is the only team in the IPL 2020 that is yet to win. It is not that Delhi have been fantastic – they were lucky against Kings XI Punjab and then defeated the CSK team. SRH, however, has so far been completely off the boil and is still setting the stage heights with its big names. The Delhi capitals’ top order came into the party against Chennai Super Kings and could be a field day against SRH’s bowling which has failed to hit their stride so far.
Capital of Delhi
Prithvi Shaw: The Delhi opener was in top form against the Chennai Super Kings, scoring 43 runs, hitting nine fours and a six. The young man seemed to be in fine touch, finding the limits of willpower. Shaw will not be able to take advantage of the SRH bowlers’ best performance and will give his team a flight once again.
Rishabh Pant: The wicketkeeper-batsman came to bat against CSK in front of Shreyas Iyer, scoring 37 runs in 25 balls. Surprisingly, Pant’s fours were all around and it is rare that the left-handed ball could not clean the fans. However, his strike rate was still good enough to push the Delhi strike to a score of 175. He could come up against Rashid Khan in the middle overs, which would surely be a difficult task.
Kagiso Rabada: The South African fast bowler has been absolutely sensational in the two matches so far. In the last match, Rabada took three wickets for just 26 runs from his four overs. He is currently the second highest wicket taker in IPL 2020 with a total of five wickets, two wickets behind from Mohammed Shami.
David Warner: It was at that time that the Australians were going into this season. He was unlucky to be out early in SRH’s opening game and despite scoring 36 against KKR in the second match, he was far from his best. SRH needs to top Warner, but will have their task cut against Rabada.
Manish Pandey: The stylish right-hander looks great in the SRH camp. He scored 34 against RCB and scored 51 runs in 38 balls against KKR. Pandey needs to score big, especially in the SRH middle order, who are looking extremely weak in the absence of Kane Richardson.
Rashid Khan: After failing to impress against RCB, Rashid Khan took his first wicket in IPL 2020 against KKR and was the standout bowler for his team in the match, conceding 25 runs from his four overs. Rashid will be up against some of the talented batsmen in the Delhi outfit and SRH will need to fire their big-game player if they join the board.
