The way Delhi Capital kick-started their Indian Premier League 2019 season, they made us think that it’s time for them to sit on the throne. But the terrible defeat against Kings XI Punjab made us believe that they are not worth it. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is enhancing their stability and strength with every match.
Now, Sunrisers Hyderabad will fly to capital to lock horns against Delhi Capitals at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Thursday, April 4. Both the teams would step on the field with their prime players. Therefore, you have a chance to witness some standout performances from both sides.
SRH vs DC Preview:
Last year runner up Sunrisers Hyderabad has clearly announced their dominance in this season as well. The monstrous knock by David Warner and Jonny Bairstow against RCB bowlers was everything that a cricket fan could ever ask for.
Hyderabad’s bowling attack doesn’t stand behind either. Mohammad Nabi picked by four wickets for just 11 runs against RCB.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, they seemed running right till the 15th over, until something mystifying happened. Suddenly, Sam Curran came into action with a hat-trick, and Delhi lost their seven wickets in just eight runs and fell short by 14 runs against Kings Xi Punjab.
Now, let’s see if Delhi Capitals would be eagerly looking forward to covering up their humiliating defeat in their last game or continue to keep failing at their fan’s expectations.
