Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH):

This team has a pure line up of destruction in their batting. They are just too ruthless when they come to bat. They already broke the highest IPL total in this season twice. In the last match they broke their own record which they created against MI and now against RCB in the last match a pure destruction was shown by the batters. They are in 4th place with 4 wins in 6 matches. They got their hattrick win in their last match.  

Travis Head in the last match registered his first IPL century. He has till now scored 235 runs with a blasting strike rate of 199.15. He is giving his team a solid start. On the other hand his partner, Abhishek Sharma is not less than a beast than him. He too had a furious strike rate of 197.20 and got 211 runs with the bat. These two gave the team a perfect power play start in most of the matches.

After them more furious batter Heinrich Klaasen who has already scored 3 half-centuries in 6 matches and is batting with a strike rate of 199.21. He is the team’s leading run-scorer this season till now with 253 runs under his belt. His best was against MI where he scored unbeaten 80 runs.    

Aiden Markram and Abdul Samad have also been performing decently till now. Markram scored 159 runs while Samad got the finishing role and scored 106 runs with a destructive strike rate of 225.53. 

Their bowling seems to be a little problematic as after obtaining two highest scorers they were unable to register a huge win. As a result their net run rate is only +0.502. Only skipper Pat Cummins showed decent performance in the bowling unit as he got 9 wickets till now with an economy of 7.88. He has the best economy in the team. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar also deals with huge runs as his economy is 10.46 which is hard from him and got only 3 wickets. The other pacers Jaydev Unadkat and T Natarajan have also been expensive with their spells while spinners Mayank Markande and Shahbaz Ahmed haven’t seen in the best of their form.

Pitch Report:

For the first time in this IPL, the match will be played at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. It is a balanced pitch but adds little more favour to the batters as compared to bowlers. At the start batters might have little problem with the swing but as the match progresses runs can be easily scored. Therefore chasing might be easier for the teams.                        

Weather Report:

Hot and sunny weather is there. The temperature will rise up to 37 degree celsius while it goes down to 24 degree celsius at night. Humidity will be close to 20%.           

Best 11 for the Match:

Heinrich Klaasen, Rishabh Pant, Travis Head, Prithvi Shaw, Abhishek Sharma, Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Aiden Markram, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed.
