SRH vs DC Dream11 Grand League Team, Team News: IPL 2019 | Eliminator

Indian Premier League 2019 eliminator is here and the two teams fighting to get one more step closer to the elite trophy are the Delhi Capitals and the Sunrisers Hyderabad. This match will be played at the Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vizag.

The Delhi Capitals have been the best travellers in this season of the IPL as five of their 9 wins this season came away from home. It has been a long wait for the Delhi fans as their side has made it to the playoffs after a long lay-off of 7 years. The biggest positive for Delhi Capitals this season has been the consistency of the experienced cog Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Shreyas Iyer who have the pillar of strength. The bowling in the absence of Kagiso Rabada is a bit of worry but Ishant Sharma and Amit Mishra have step-up to the occasion and will hold the key for DC.

Talking about the Sunrisers, they have a pendulum sort of season and are coming into this match on the back of two loss against Mumbai Indians in the super-over and against Royal Challengers Bangalore. With the departure of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner, Sunrisers suffered a lot but at this juncture of the competition, any lapses will shatter their dream of capturing the cup for the second time.
