Image result for dc vs srh

Two well balanced teams lock horns for a spot in the qualifier two of the VIVO IPL 2019. The ACA-VDCA stadium in Andhra Pradesh holds this season’s eliminator. Delhi and Hyderabad who finished third and fourth respectively have only one shot at the trophy, with the loser getting eliminated. The winner will go on to face either Mumbai Indians or Chennai Super Kings from their qualifier match. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our prediction.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi has been one of the top sides of IPL 2019. Despite finishing the group stage with 18 points, Delhi were placed third because of a lower NRR than MI and CSK. Delhi started off the season poorly and it looked like it was the same Delhi Daredevils who had faltered in the previous seasons. But the change DC underwent has been remarkable to turn into a serious contender for the title. Under the capable leadership of young Shreyas Iyer, Delhi has become a force to be recognized. Openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan put up fine opening partnerships to set the innings for Rishabh Pant and Iyer. The likes of Sherfane Rutherford and Colin Ingram provide stability to the middle order.

Delhi will surely miss the services of Kagsio Rabada. The South African was the best bolwer for DC and the whole tournament. The responsibility now falls on the veteran pacers Trent Boult and Ishant Sharma. This duo will have to shut down SRH with the help of Amit Mishra. The spinner along with Axar Patel also has to be at their best in the match.

Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will be vital for scoring runs. Ishant Sharma and Amit Mishra will be the same for bowling.

Predicted XI

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Ingram, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford, Trent Boult, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH endured a nervy group stage. They had to wait until the final day to see whether they would qualify or not. With 12 points in the bag and just a slight better NRR than KKR, bagged Sunrisers the fourth place in the table. SRH became the first team in IPL history to qualify even after securing 12 points. SRH started the season well but lost track midway, especially due to the over dependence of Warner and Bairstow. With the duo now gone, SRH look on Kane Williamson, Martin Guptill and Manish Pandey to do the needful. Even though replicating the destructive batting of Warner and Bairstow will be next to impossible, SRH will need to do their best to win this match.

SRH have a potent bowling attack led by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Kumar along with Khaleel Ahmed have formed a very good partnership. The pace duo has been responsible for many collapses in the opposition teams. SRH still have their ace Rashid Khan. Although the spinner has seen a dip in form, he is not to be trifled with. Delhi is sure to be weary of the SRH bowlers.

Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey are the key performers in batting. Bhuvi, Khaleel and Rashid will overlook the bowling attack.

Predicted XI

Kane Willaimson, Martin Guptill, Manish Pandey, Wridhhiman Saha, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Yusuf Pathan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma.
