SRH will have the home advantage and will be confident as they defeated Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their last game. Skipper David Warner is in a terrific form, leading the team from front while the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan are team’s mainstay in bowling. However, they might consider bringing back Ashish Nehra, whom they had replaced with Barinder Sran, who failed to pick up any wicket after being given a chance in the last match. Defeating SRH at their home will be a big challenge for DD.
Delhi, on the other hand, have been producing commendable performances consistently, making them one of the strongest contenders to make it to the playoffs. DD’s bowling is being touted as one of the strongest this IPL season. The likes of Zaheer Khan, Pat Cummins have been consistent with wickets while Rishabh Pant has been impressive with the bat.
