Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face off each other in the Eliminator match of the IPL 2019 at YSR Reddy Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam tonight. Winner of this match will play against Chennai Super Kings in the Qualifier 2 day after tomorrow.
Delhi Capitals have had an excellent tournament so far and in the group stage, they won 9 of the 14 matches and will now look to win their first ever knockout match in the IPL. Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Rishabh Pant are in great form and will hope for yet another good outing. Prithvi Shaw has had a poor season so far but he has a good chance to make it a good one.
In the bowling, Delhi will miss their star pacer Kagiso Rabada and in his absence Trent Boult, Ishant Sharma, and Chris Morris have to step up and spinners Axar Patel and Amit Mishra too will look to support them.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad made to the playoffs with just six wins in the group stage and are coming off two back to back losses but they will look to put their past performance behind them and will start afresh. Batting is their weakness right now and captain Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey will have to carry them and they will also hope that Martin Guptill and Wriddhiman Saha will step up at top of the order and cameos from the lower order batsmen might help them to post a good total.
In the bowling, they have been doing good and their main bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, and Khaleel Ahmed are in good form and have the skills to put any side in the trouble.
