IPL 2020: DC vs SRH, Match 11 Updates: Bairstow, Warner start steadily for Hyderabad

Abu Dhabi, September 29: In-form Delhi capitals meet winless Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 11 of the IPL 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday (September 29).

While Shreyas Iyer-led Punjab will look to continue their winning run, David Warner’s side will look to secure their first win of the campaign.

Delhi Capitals have secured wins in their opening two games, one being via Super Over against Kings XI Punjab, while the second and most recent result being a 44-run victory over Chennai Super Kings. So, Iyer and co will be brimming with confidence going into Tuesday’s encounter.

Sunrisers, on the other hand, have suffered back-toback losses in their two matches. Their campaign opener was a 10 run loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore and their second defeat came just three days ago against Kolkata Knight Riders. So, Warner’s men will look for a quick upturn.

Hyderabad have also been hit by injuries with Mitchell Marsh limping off the field in the opening match and Kane Williamson yet to take the field this season. However, they have some good news as the New Zealand batsman could be part of the team to strengthen the weak middle-order. They will also hope Vijay Shankar returns to the eleven.

As far as Delhi are concerned, even they had an injury blow in their campaign opener after spinner Ravichandran Ashwin left the field with a shoulder issue and is expected to be rested for a few more games.

But they have a veteran in Amit Mishra to call upon in his absence and with a tidy performance from the veteran leg-spinner, Capitals may stick to the winning combo.

Despite the advantage of bowling first, Delhi Capitals have won both their matches by batting first. But, it is their first match in Abu Dhabi, which has favoured the team chasing in 2 of 3 matches. So, it will be interesting to see what decision the captains make at the toss.

After witnessing back-to-back high scoring and thrilling ties, nothing less will be expected tonight when Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi Capitals lock horns with David Warner’s Sunrsiers Hyderabad.

06:08 pm

Milestones in sight for a few players in this match: Manish Pandey needs 72 runs to reach 3000 IPL runs. Shikhar Dhawan needs three maximums to reach a 100 sixes in IPL and is also one fifty away from equalling Suresh Raina at second position for most number of fifties in IPL.

05:28 pm

Sunrisers may have the upper hand when it comes to head-to-head record, but opposition all-rounder Marcus Stoinis seems relaxed as Delhi Capitals aim for a hattrick of wins to start the IPL 2020 season.

05:23 pm

They may be without a win coming into today’s match, but Sunrisers hold the edge over Delhi Capitals in the head-to-head stats with a 9-6 record. So, will that play in Orange Army’s favour or do these stats not matter much in T20 cricket?

We’ll find out soon as the toss is just under two hours away.
