A dejected Delhi takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad at Delhi with an intention to get back to winning habit. Sunrisers have the best top-order in this tournament so far and it is backed by a match-winner leggie in the form of Rashid Khan.
So, Sunrisers are the clear favourites but Delhi have the individuals who can snatch the game in no time.
We look at the three key player battles from DC vs SRH IPL 2019 match.
#3. Bhunveshwar vs Dhawan-
Shikhar Dhawan has got runs in IPL 2019 but he hasn’t had a much of a blazing contribution so far. Delhi would him to play a big knock but for this Dhawan will have to endure the challenge of Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the Powerplays.
Bhuvneshwas has been wicket-less in IPL season 12 so far and hence he too has a lot to prove when he comes to bowl on April 05. This will be an interesting duel and do watch out for the outswinger from Bhuvi which will shape away from Dhawan.
#2. Rabada vs Warner-
A high-quality battle. A serious hitter versus a s skilled bowler. Kagiso Rabada has emerged as a complete bowler and his extra pace is always a challenge for batsman.
On the other hand Warner is batting in supreme form. He is scoring runs for fun and will he show the same disdain to Rabada which he has shown to other bowlers in IPL so far?
#1. Rashid vs Pant-
A match-winner vs a match-winner. Rishabh Pant is Delhi’s biggest match-winner and he has responsibility of accelerating in the middle-overs. But against SRH this will be a tough ask as the middle overs for SRH are manned by Rashid Khan whose leg-spin is highly lethal.
Will Pant go after Rashid or will he prefer seeing him off and attack the rest of the bowling unit?
