21st Match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 will be played between home team, and also defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), and Delhi Daredevils (DD) on 19th April at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad. As the match starts at 8 pm, toss will be an important as dew has proved out to be a serious concern for the team bowling second.
Sunrisers have won three out of five matches played; while all the matches were won at home ground in Hyderabad. This match being played in Hyderabad will be a plus point for SRH. Also, Sunrisers won their last match against Kings XI Punjab in Hyderabad. Warner is back in form and has scored 70 runs in 40 balls. Bhuvi was sensational taking 5 wicket haul in 4 overs and giving 19 runs only. He also took the wicket of Manan Vohra in the second last over; who almost snatched the game away from the hand of SRH. Afghan player Rashid Khan proved to be expensive in this match while Barinder Sran bowled at an economy of 14.5 and was given only 2 overs, which is why it’s almost certain that he is going to miss the upcoming match.
Delhi Daredevils have played four matches and won two of them. Delhi Daredevils lost its last match against Kolkata Knight Riders. DD will be playing this away match after two home matches and defeating SRH at will be a tough task. DD’s batsmen are scoring runs but failure to build big partnerships is hurting them to post a par total; absence of Duminy and de Kock can be easily noticed. Daredevils’ bowlers have been in the front seat under the skipper Zaheer Khan. Angelo Mathews is back and has added value to both bowling and batting department. There should be no change in the playing XI, as team is working as a single unit.
Head to head: SRH vs DD
DD and SRH have encountered 8 times in IPL history out of which SRH have won 5 times while DD have won in 3 matches. Three wins of Delhi Daredevils has come in the last 4 matches.
