DC-145/2 after 16 overs

8.51pm

7.55pm

Toss Results

Delhi Capitals wins toss and opts to bat first.

David Warner: We would have bowled first, so happy with the toss. You can see a few indentations on the pitch too and hopefully we can take some early wickets in the powerplay. We are supposed to win close games, and that was a kick in the backside to perform and we have performed well since then. Everyone knows their roles in the team.

Shreyas Iyer: We had two outings against SRH and I think this is a better outfield to bat against them. Putting on a good total would be a responsibility, and it’s a good surface too. You have to take the positives, and do the homework right and I think we have done that well. Rashid is an amazing bowler who can change the game. We have to be aware of him and play smartly. Pravin Dube and Hetmyer come in. It’s important to keep things simple, and it’s only a matter of executing our plan today.

 

 

 

 

 

6.30pm
Can DC overturn their poor run of fortunes tonight?

6pm
We are exactly one hour away from toss!

Pitch conditions: Slow pitch was on offer in Abu Dhabi on Friday and to everyone’s surprise, there wasn’t much dew. It was a low-scoring thriller and if the same pitch is used, we might be in for another such encounter. While SRH are doing well with winning the toss and bowling first, DC might think otherwise given their vulnerability in chasing big totals.

5.35pm
Can Rabada clinch the Purple Cap from Jasprit Bumrah tonight?

Bumrah: Matches-14; Wickets-27
Rabada: Matches-15; Wickets-25

17.01pm

Prithvi Shaw all set to be dropped, Delhi Capitals likely to opt for new opening pair against SRH in IPL 2020 Qualifier 2

Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw’s bat has looked completely silent in the ongoing Dream11 IPL 2020. With each passing match, problems with Shaw’s batting and headache for DC has compounded. It seems DC management has now lost patience with Shaw as he is all set to be dropped from the make or break game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.

– Shaw has managed to score just 228 runs in 13 matches played this season at a strike rate of 136.52.
– Shaw’s highest score in the last 8 innings has been 19.
– He has been out on duck three times during this period.
– Shaw’s early dismissal in every match has created a lot of pressure on the team’s middle order resulting in team struggling for runs.

4.45pm
Milestones on the card!

-Shreyas Iyer needs 67 runs to complete 500 runs in IPL 2020.

-Ajinkya Rahane requires 69 runs to complete 4000 IPL runs.

-David Warner is 5 sixes away from completing 200 IPL sixes.

-Shahbaz Nadeem needs 3 wickets to complete 50 IPL wickets.

4.10pm
Can Stoinis be the gamechanger for DC again?

With 314 runs and nine wickets to his name, Stoinis is having one of his best IPL seasons, but the all-rounder said the team’s victories mean more than his individual performance.

Delhi Capitals all-rounder Marcus Stoinis on Saturday said playing “fearless cricket” could see them emerge victorious against a resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second qualifier and continue their march towards a maiden IPL title.

3.41pm
Air of uncertainty looms over Wriddhiman Saha’s availability!

Wriddhiman Saha’s groin injury, which ruled him out of the eliminator, might also keep him out of the second qualifier.

“We have faith in (Shreevats) Goswami. He has been around for some time and we need to give confidence,” said Holder, whose 13 wickets in six games along with crucial middle- order contributions, has been the ‘x factor’ for his side.

3.20pm
Sunrisers start as favourites to seal IPL 2020 finals berth- Check out why

Sunrisers Hyderabad is dubbed to start as the favourites when they lock horns agains Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2 due to their current  form. SRH have won both their league games against DC this season and are also on a good run of form.
