Match 20 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will see the Delhi Capitals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday.
The Delhi Capitals have been quite impressive this season, winning three out of their four games. Although they have faced some personnel concerns with regular captain Shreyas Iyer being ruled out of IPL 2021, Delhi have coped well under Rishabh Pant’s leadership. Key to their fortunes has been Shikhar Dhawan, who currently holds the Orange Cap with 231 runs to his name. Although DC’s ace pacer Kagiso Rabada is yet to fire in IPL 2021, they will start Sunday’s game as favorites.
But DC face an upbeat Sunrisers Hyderabad side who won their first game in IPL 2021 earlier in the week against the Punjab Kings. Jonny Bairstow has been the star of the show for the 2016 IPL champions, whose middle-order has looked very fragile in recent games. However, the addition of Kane Williamson should help in this regard as SRH look to close out their Chennai leg with a win.
Although the Delhi Capitals are the favorites heading into the game, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s bowling attack, which boasts Rashid Khan, will be a tough nut to crack. But with Axar Patel likely to return to the side, DC will fancy their chances in what promises to be a cracking game of cricket in Chennai.

Date & Time: 25th April 2021, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
An even contest between the bat and ball awaits in Chennai on Sunday. As seen in previous games, the pitch is on the slower side, with the spinners extracting a lot of turn off the surface. The fast bowlers have also done well by varying their pace. However, the batsmen will look to be aggressive in the powerplay overs. With dew expected to play a part in the second innings, both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss. 150-160 should be a competitive total, with the spinners expected to have a major say in the outcome of the match.
