After defeating SRH on the road, DC will host SRH again at home on April 29, 2023 in Delhi. Both teams have lost three of their last five games, and they are struggling to win this season.
DC is at the bottom of the table with 4 points after two wins in seven games this season. SRH, on the other hand, has won two of their last seven games and is currently ranked ninth in the table due to a higher net run rate.
SRH has not won a game against DC in the last two seasons, so a win against DC will be critical. DC, on the other hand, are looking forward to turning the league’s points table as the second leg of the league has begun.
The 40th Match between Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad will take place on April 29th, 2023 at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.

DC lost the first five games of the season in a row, but they gained momentum in the last two games, defeating KKR and SRH. To keep the momentum going, DC will host SRH again on April 29, 2023, at Arun Jaitley Stadium.
In the previous game against SRH, David Warner chose to bat first, but DC’s batters failed to put up a good total. They scored 144 runs on the board thanks to Manish Pandey’s 34 runs from 27 balls and Axar Patel’s 34 runs from 34 balls.
Despite batting failure, DC’s bowlers came to the rescue and bowled a brilliant spell to defeat SRH while defending the target of 145 runs. Anrich Nortje and Axar Patel picked up 2 wickets each to put pressure on SRH’s batters and defended the target. DC got managed to register a win by 7 runs.
DC’s batting unit is heavily dependent on David Warner, so his role in the team is now more important in the 2nd leg of the league. With 2 back-to-back wins, DC’s bowlers are of high confidence, and they will try to continue that form against SRH in the upcoming game.
David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ripal Patel, Rovman Powell, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharma, Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw
Players to watch out for:
Currently ranked fifth in the race for the orange cap this season, Warner has scored over 300 runs in just seven games. Surprisingly, despite smashing over 40 boundaries, the Australian International has only hit one maximum in the competition. This demonstrates how safe he has been for DC thus far.
The veteran Indian pacer has been the Delhi Capitals’ knight in shining armor. Sharma bowled three overs in the previous game, giving up 18 runs and taking a wicket.
Axar has contributed not only with the ball but also with the bat in the IPL 2023. In the previous game, he took two wickets while allowing only 21 runs and scored 34 runs.
Possible Playing XI:
Phil Salt (wk), David Warner (c), Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Yash Dhull, Aman Khan, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Ripal Patel, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav
SRH has now lost three consecutive league games. Though the team’s roster appears balanced on paper, they have failed to capitalize on that strength on the field, winning only two of the seven games played so far. They will now face DC in an away game.
In the previous game, SRH’s bowlers were on fire. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar took two wickets in four overs, allowing only 11 runs and conceding only a boundary on the final ball of his spell. Washington Sundar, who is currently out of the IPL due to injury, bowled a brilliant spell, taking three wickets. SRH gave up 144 runs in 20 overs.
Despite having a strong batting lineup, SRH’s batters fell short of the 145-run target and lost the game by 7 runs in the final over. Mayank Agarwal’s 49 runs off 39 balls and Heinrich Klaasen’s 31 runs off 19 balls were in vain as other batters failed to score during the chase.
If the SRH batters are to get back on track in this second leg of the IPl, they must pull up their socks. They will try to win after three straight defeats when they face DC in Delhi on April 29th.
Aiden Markram (c), Abdul Samad, Rahul Tripathi, Glenn Phillips, Abhishek Sharma, Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Kartik Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T.

Players to watch out for:
The medium-arm Indian bowler took two wickets and allowed only 11 runs when SRH faced DC a few days ago. Even in Match 40, Kumar will be critical in taking early powerplay wickets.
The Englishman previously demonstrated his true worth by smashing a thumping century for SRH, but he has since gone cold. While inconsistency has been an issue for Brook this season, he will be eager to redeem himself in Match 40, especially after being dismissed for 7 runs off 14 balls in Match 34.
Washington Sundar’s confidence will be high after taking three wickets and scoring 24 runs off 15 balls against the Delhi Capitals in Match 34.
Possible Playing XI:
Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Marco Jansen, Mayank Markande, Bhavaneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
