Here is the detailed analysis for DC vs SRH head to head record, playoff records and players to watch out among the teams at Dubai.
After a disappointing first half, Sunrisers Hyderabad has picked up the momentum just at the right time when the team required it most and David Warner and Co would look to maintain the same in today's match against Delhi Capitals as well. Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, had an impressive start, which lasted till the first nine matches, but since then the team has gone down to lose five out of their next six matches.
The two teams have faced each other 17 times in the IPL history in which David Warner side has dominated over the Capitals with a nearly half win/loss record i.e. 11/6. In the current IPL 2020 season, Sunrisers Hyderabad has won on both the occasions by demolished their challengers badly.
Delhi Capitals has featured in IPL playoffs for seven occasions and won just a once while the team lost six, and has never made a final, the worsened IPL figures for Shreyas Iyer and Co. So, the Delhi side definitely changes the complication this time when they take on in-form SRH tonight.
On the other hand, 2016-champion Sunrisers Hyderabad has played ten playoff matches in IPL history. SRH had as many win in their tally as many lose. Warner's team has equalled the stats with five wins up till now. But on this occasions the team playing much-better cricket and managed to win its four straight matches after hammering RCB in Eliminator.
Earlier this season, both DC and SRH had squared off at the same venue i.e. Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 27, Tuesday.
