IPL 2020, SRH vs DC: Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals are eyeing IPL 2020 playoff birth when they face Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 47th match of the tournament at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday.

Last time when they met, SRH had beaten DC by 15 runs on the back of some fine performances from David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, and Rashid Khan. While SRH will be searching for a similar outcome to keep their playoff hopes alive, DC will be seeking to avenge their loss and consolidate their position in the points table.

Delhi Capitals opt to bowl first

What's the recent form guide?

Sunrisers Hyderabad's form has dipped sharply recently, as it has lost four of its last five matches. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals has stuttered in the recent past by losing two matches on the trot before this contest. Dubai is ready for a real contest tonight.

What's the head-to-head record?

The two teams have faced each other 16 times in the IPL, and SRH has dominated the fixture by winning it 10 times. Earlier this season, SRH (162/4 in 20 overs) beat DC (147/7 in 20 overs) by 15 runs in Dubai on October 8. Can SRH provide an upset again?

Pitch Conditions

The pitches have slowed down in Dubai considerably as witnessed in the recent games. Both teams would be inclined to bat first on this surface. SRH in particular would want that after the failure to chase down a moderate total last time.

15:25 (IST)27 Oct 2020
Where they stand

Two back-to-back defeats against Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab must be hurting but DC needs to shrug it off and add two points to take their tally to 16, which will elevate them to the top of the table. On the other hand, Sunrisers’ hopes to reach the playoffs are hanging by a thread. David Warner and his men occupy the penultimate spot with eight points from 11 outings.

Shaw or Rahane?

Opener Prithvi Shaw, who has been going through a lean patch, was replaced by Ajinkya Rahane but to no avail as the senior Indian player perished without opening his account.

Stats to remember

SRH at this venue: Played 9, Won 5, Lost 4
DC at this venue: Played 7, Won 5, Lost 2

Delhi hopeful of a batting show

The Capitals possess an explosive batting department as well as a formidable bowling unit. They have not been dependent on any one person, as different players have raised their hands at different points of time to deliver the goods for the team. However, apart from Shikhar Dhawan, the Delhi batsmen have been very inconsistent in the last three games.

12:43 (IST)27 Oct 2020

Manish Pandey needs 62 runs to complete 1000 IPL runs for SRH.
David Warner requires 9 sixes to complete 200 IPL sixes.
