Spirited DC eye joyful return

Spirited DC eye joyful return

Delhi Capitals, who had only one win in their opening five games, have now managed to string together two wins in a row for the first time this season. They are currently ranked sixth in the points table. But maintaining the momentum won’t be a simple chore as they prepare for the opening IPL 2024 encounter at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are coming into this game after breaking their own record for the highest IPL total, are their opponents. With their aggressive style of play, they have redefined T20 batting.

The Indian seam bowling tandem of Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, and Mukesh Kumar has been outstanding for the Capitals in their recent victories. The Capitals have finally made progress in the competition with the ever-dependable Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel running the spin department. In the batting department, Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw have been producing with the bat, but the addition of Jake Fraser-McGurk has given the top order a breath of fresh air. But DC will be worried about David Warner’s form and fitness because he was out of the last game.

From the beginning of the inning until the end, the Sunrisers hitters, led by Travis Head at the top and Heinrich Klaasen at the bottom, have been hitting for maximum power. Five of the eight fifty-plus goals by Sunrisers in this edition have come from them together, and the team will be hoping they keep up the fine work. Though they have amassed enormous totals, Sunrisers will be eager to improve their bowling because they have allowed teams to go close. While T Natarajan (6 wickets with an economy of 9.43) and captain Pat Cummins (9 wickets and an economy of 7.87) have performed admirably, the remaining bowlers have all had higher economies, and SRH will be keen to remedy this as quickly as possible.
