Shreyas Iyer led Delhi Capitals have shown a lot of promise but they have suffering losses as well. They are in the middle of the points table with as many wins as losses. They faced a major collapse in their last against KXIP. Now they will face Sunrisers Hyderabad at their home. Get the best of IPL tips for the match.
Delhi Capitals were in a strong position in the last match and the teams often don’t lose from that position. But the loss for Delhi Capitals has drained a lot of confidence out of them. Sunrisers are languishing at the third place in the points table with the best of the run rate. They collapsed RCB in the last match to boost their morale. Both teams are almost the same on paper and we expect a cracking match.
IPL Prediction Tips Performance Check
Facing the poor of the seasons in IPL, Delhi Capitals seem to be more promising this season. Change in the name seems to have brought fortune for the franchise. This has been a great start for the team with a thrashing win in their opening game against Mumbai Indians.
However, the team collapsed in the previous match against KXIP and reminded the fans of the dark days in the previous seasons. This has been a weakness with the team. At one time they were ahead in the chase and the win was very certain but the fall of one wicket led to the other. They collapsed from 144 for 3 to 152 all-out.
The team looks tremendous on paper and is not short of skills. They have an arguably strong young batting line-up with the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Colin Ingram, and Rishabh Pant. Their bowling unit is also strong. Iyer doesn’t have the experience to lead the side in just high profile tournament. If Delhi Capitals work on their weak points and try to handle such pressure situations, then it would be very difficult for other teams to face them.
Campaign for Sunrisers has been contrary to that of Delhi Capitals. The runner ups of the previous season started off this season with a loss in the opening match against KKR. However, they have fought back well with two wins in their next two matches.
Kane Williamson has not been available in the team regularly because of injuries but Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has managed the team well as stand-in captain. His bowling has not been that sharp as in last season.
With David Warner, Vijay Shankar and Bairstow in fine form, the absence of Kane Williamson doesn’t affect the team whatsoever. They have a deep batting line-up with players like Nabi, Yusuf Pathan, and Deepak Hooda down in the order.
Overall, Sunrisers have been doing good and if they continue to perform like this in the rest of the tournament, then it would be very difficult for the teams to get past them.

Toss Prediction Tips
Since dew might be a factor, the team winning the toss is likely to opt for bowling.
Sunrisers have been the best bowling side till the start of this season. But now they seem to be arguably the best batting side with Warner and Bairstow with three 100 plus stands. Delhi too has good batting attack but they lack experience. However, they have the best bowling attack with world class bowlers. It is going to be a match between Delhi’s bowling and Hyderabad’s batting. Sunrisers are a better side on paper and are expected to win the match.
