Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on Delhi Capitals (DC) in match 40 of IPL 2023 in Delhi in the reverse fixture. The match will be played on Saturday, April 29 at 7.30 pm. SRH and DC are the bottom two teams on the points table.
Sunrisers Hyderabad after back to back wins against PBKS and KKR have lost three consecutive matches and lost all the momentum. They will need to play a lot better in the second half of the season to give themselves the best chance of making the playoffs.
SRH were totally outplayed in their last match against DC. They could not chase 145 required for victory and fell seven runs short ending at 137/6. Their batting was way below par in the match and could not back the good work of their bowlers.
To make matters worse for the Sunrisers, Washington Sundar, the only player who performed against DC in the previous match was ruled out due to a hamstring injury. The franchise has not a replacement as yet and it will be interesting to see who replaces him in the lineup.
