Here we go…Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw to start the Delhi Capitals innings. Bhuvneshwar Kumar with the ball for Sunrisers Hyderabad
Shreyas Iyer: “We would have bowled first as well, irrespective of what happened the other night. Looks a dry surface and it might spin more in the second half. So, banking on that. Three changes – Ishant, Axar and Tewatia come in.”
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: “We are gonna bowl first. It’s a dry wicket but keeping the way we’ve batted in the last few games, we want to chase. We’re unchanged.”

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (w), Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ishant Sharma
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Jonny Bairstow (w), David Warner, Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (c), Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
“No grass at all on it. The Super Over game saw a 180-plus match and the average first innings score has been 177 over the years. The pitch generally is skiddy in the first 10 overs before it starts slowing down. Spin could be the key, especially for DC if they are to restrict the Warner-Bairstow pair.” –
“David Warner — and I think all top players are the same — they have got an unquenchable thirst for the game and to have success in the game. That thirst certainly hasn’t been withdrawn by any means” – Sunrisers Hyderabad head coach
