IPL 2021, Match 33: Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Toss Report

The Delhi Capitals (DC) clash with the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 33 of IPL 2021 on Wednesday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.

There has been a covid-19 scare in the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp with pacer T Natarajan testing positive for the virus. However, the game will go on as decided after the rest of the contingent tested negative, including Natarajan’s six close contacts who have been placed in isolation.

The two sides are sitting far away from each other in the points table after the first half of the season. Rishabh Pant’s team is placed second after 6 wins and 2 losses while Kane Williamson’s SRH have lost 6 and won just a solitary match, and are languishing at the bottom of the table.
