Delhi Capitals(DC) are set to face SunRisers Hyderabad(SRH) in the 50th match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) on Thursday, May 5 at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
Delhi Capitals have picked up 4 wins playing in 9 matches and are placed in the 7th position with 8 points. A win in this match will send them up to the 5th position. They lost the previous match against Lucknow Super Giants by a mere margin of 6 runs after failing to chase a target of 196 runs. Both the openers were dismissed for a single-digit score in that match and DC would be hoping for a better performance from them. The middle-order has put up the maximum runs for Rishabh Pant-led side. This is a positive sign which they have shown in the last couple of matches. A better performance would be expected from the bowling unit as well.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, are placed in the fifth position currently with 5 wins from 9 matches. They have lost the previous 2 matches and would be looking to make a comeback. The bowlers gave away 202 runs in the last game against Chennai Super Kings, and apart from T Natarajan, no other bowler could pick a wicket. They would be trying to bounce back in the outing.
