It would be a tough call for Delhi Daredevils(DD) as they face the team which has both Purple cap(most wickets) and Orange cap(most runs) that is Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH).
Sunrisers would be happy to win match again after straight 2 losses and would be thinking of hunting down Daredevils but there are problems for SRH as they have not clicked together as a strong batting unit and looking at Delhi’s bowling unit it is at 2nd place after SRH, so the batting should be more strong as middle order has struggled to perform.
Delhi Daredevils would be eager for a win against the defending champs and would be very happy if they can turnaround there form as in the starting two matches, Delhi should know that they are playing against the best bowling attack and there batting hasn’t been that good as Karun Nair in the middle order has failed to hit some runs and his place could be taken up by Angelo Mathews, rishab pant is in good form and can be pushed up in batting order. The main problem of Delhi Daredevils is their consistency.
Sunrisers appear to be a strong team and playing on the home surface, if the batting & bowling combinations strike well then they could defeat delhi easily, after all they are defending champions .
