Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Delhi Capitals go head to head with Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday evening in Match 35 of the 2024 Indian Premier League. The Capitals had a poor start to the tournament but thrashed Gujarat Titans in their last match. Sunrisers are in fourth place with four wins from six. Read on as we preview this clash which gets underway at 19:30 local time at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on April 20th.

Coming into this game after back to back wins, Delhi Capitals will be confident of making it three in a row and there is a youthful freshness to the side. However, they will be up against one of the best batting line-ups in the tournament in this game and it will be a very tough contest.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have assembled a side full of aggressive batters and due to the impact player option, they are able to pack their line-up with big hitters. Although they have lost two matches so far, they will travel to Delhi full of confidence after posting a record-breaking 287/3 in their last game.

DC vs SRH Pitch Report

This is the first game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in the 2024 IPL so there will be a little bit of unknown about exactly how the pitch will play. However, we can expect to see a pitch with plenty of pace and carry which should encourage the stroke-makers in both batting line-ups. Bowlers will look to make the most of the early overs when the ball is likely to swing but a par score is expected to be 200+.

Delhi Weather Report

It will be partly cloudy throughout this game on Saturday evening with the temperature above 29 degrees from start to finish. Humidity will be no higher than 30% across the match.

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

There was one change for Delhi Capitals ahead of their big win against Gujarat Titans with Sumit Kumar coming in for the injured David Warner. The Australian has a finger injury which is not expected to keep him out for too long but we anticipate he will not be back for this match.

DC Key Players

  • Jake Fraser-McGurk – The 22 year old Australian has already hit four fours and seven sixes across his two innings in the tournament so far.
  • Rishabh Pant – The skipper was at the crease for the winning runs against Gujarat Titans but was also brilliant behind the stumps where he took two catches and effected two stumpings.
  • Khaleel Ahmed – The left-arm pace bowler has had an excellent tournament so far and comes into this game after recording figures of 1/18, including bowling a maiden over, from his four overs in Ahmedabad.
  • Mukesh Kumar – The right-arm medium bowler got the early wicket of Wriddhiman Saha in the last match before ending the innings with two dismissals in the 18th over.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Abishek Porel, Lizaad Williams, Kumar Kushagra, Praveen Dubey, Lalit Yadav

We saw Khaleel Ahmed substituted out of the side after the bowling innings with Abishek Porel coming in during the last game. Both performed well and we expect them to be the same players who are used as impacts in this game.

DC Team Form

Delhi Capitals have won both of their last games by 6 wickets and are targeting a third successive win.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk) Sumit Kumar, Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

Pat Cummins announced an unchanged team for the run-fest against RCB and we are certainly not expecting any changes to their batting line-up for this match. Bowlers were expensive in Bengaluru but that was more to do with the pitch and no new injuries have been announced in the squad.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head – The Australian struck nine fours and eight sixes in his innings against RCB and we expect the left-handed opener to come out with the same intent in this match.
  • Heinrich Klaasen – The South African is rightly rated as the most consistent T20 batter in the world at the moment and hit 67 runs from 31 balls in the last game.
  • Pat Cummins – The Australian skipper is a quick and accurate judge of a pitch and we saw that in the last game where he used slower balls to good effect against RCB.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar – The experienced bowler went wicketless and was expensive in the last game but he always gets movement early on with the new ball and will be a threat once again.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Umran Malik, Anmolpreet Singh, Mayank Markande, Glenn Phillips, Rahul Tripathi

Mayank Markande came into the side for the fielding innings in Bengaluru but the added pace in Delhi may see Umran Malik back in the team. Travis Head is most likely to be left out for the bowling innings.

SRH Team Form

Sunrisers Hyderabad are in excellent form and are targeting their fourth successive victory in the IPL 2024.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Heinrich Klaasen (wk) Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat, T Natarajan, Nitish Kumar Reddy

Who will win Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad T20 Match?

Delhi Capitals produced an exceptional bowling display to thrash Gujarat Titans in their last game but we think Sunrisers Hyderabad have too strong a batting line-up and we have Sunrisers as the top side.

🏆 DC vs SRH Prediction

With Delhi Capitals improving over recent matches and picking up wins, this could be a very high scoring and entertaining clash at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. The Capitals seem to be enjoying their cricket again and they have excellent variety in their bowling attack. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad have broken the IPL team total record twice in the tournament and we are backing them to win this game.
