DC host SRH in clash where the bottom two sides battle it out

DC welcome SRH to the Arun Jaitley Stadium in match number 40

(Cricket news) Delhi Capitals host Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday, as there is a lot in common between the two teams. Both teams are at the wrong end of the table and are only separated only by net run rate. DC and SRH have scored the least runs in the IPL this year, and has been their main problem. In their last meeting, Capitals won three-wicket over in the last match despite Mayank Agarwal playing the anchor role but were suffocated by Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav. For DC they would want Mitchell Marsh to find some rhythm at the top,

Sunrisers have had a similar struggle to find a constant opening combination. They started the season with Mayank and Abhishek Sharma at the top, but it looked like prompting Harry Brook up the order was a masterstroke after he scored a hundred against KKR but recently he struggled to find his groove.To accommodate Brook and Abhishek at the top, Sunrisers have juggled Mayank up and down the order, and are yet to find a solution.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals are likely to stick to the same team as Sarfaraz Khan was used as an impact player and Mukesh Yadav, vice versa if they bowl first. Ishant Sharma should continue in playing XI as the veteran is rolling back his years by bowling really well at the top

Probable XII: David Warner (capt), Phil Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Sarfaraz Khan, Manish Pandey, Aman Khan, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Washington Sundar is out injured for the tournament and they may replace him with a batter in Abdul Samad or the impressive Kashmiri Vivrant Sharma could be handed his debut. T Natarajan will be the impact player making way for Rahul Tripathi.

Probable XII: Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (capt), Abhishek Sharma, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad/Vivrant Sharma, Marco Jansen, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
