Sunrisers Hyderabad will be itching to make things equal against Delhi Capitals because DC defeated them in their backyard a week ago. It was a hard pill to swallow for them as they failed to chase down 144 runs posted on board by DC batters.

This was a story of a fortnight ago now Hyderabad will have the same chance to defeat Delhi capitals in their backyard. DC have faced two defeats at this ground against top teams like Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians.

A tough track to bat so there will be test of perseverance and skills for batters at this pitch. Let’s take a look at three names who can make a big impact for their team on this ground:

Rahul Tripathi

Disappointing season so far for this player but he is a quality player and can definitely turn things around in a single match. On typical track of Arun Jaitley stadium, Rahul Tripathi could be the man for SRH to lead them to strong position because he is a quite good player of spin.

Also Delhi capitals have three qualities spinners who will operate through the middle overs. So the role of Rahul Tripathi will be very crucial for SRH to keep the score rate moving and also to keep the wickets enact.

David Warner

The DC captain loves playing at this ground. Having scored 885 runs in near 31 matches, he could be the game changer for the home side. But the concern for the captain is his strike rate which hasn’t gone up to 120 this season.

Being an ex Hyderabad man, he is well aware of the bowling ability of the team. There are good chances, good matche ups that he can anticipate those bowlers and can go on to score big runs against SRH.

Aiden Markram

Time for Markram to lead from the front. Yes, his team has struggled so has the captain but if he wants to change the fortune of the team he has to stand up and take the lead. He played impactful 24 balls 42 runs knock against Delhi last year.

Markram is the guy who can certainly perform well beyond what is expected despite difficult circumstances and the behaviour of the pitch. He is a quality player and once he gets going, everyone now it is very hard stopping him.

Hyderabad sits at the 9th position in the points table with four Points. Delhi Capitals, too, have 4 points but they are at the 10 position because of lower net run rate.

Both sides will aim for win because it is more demanding for them than any other team. A lot of cricket experts counted SRH to be the most competitive side of IPL 2023 but so far, the case has been quite opposite.
