David Warner and Aiden Markram

Delhi Capitals (DC) will face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 40th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Arun Jaitely Stadium on Saturday (April 29). Notably, DC’s and SRH’s last fixture was also against each other, where the Delhi-based team emerged victorious by seven runs.

Axar Patel shined for DC in their victory over SRH as he played a resilient knock of 34 runs for his side and also picked up two wickets. Although Mayank Agrawal scored 49 runs for SRH, he failed to sail his team through in the run chase. Among bowlers, Washington Sundar bagged three scalps for the Hyderabad-based side in the first innings. However, Sundar will not play the upcoming matches for SRH as he has been ruled out of the entire tournament due to an injury.

Both the teams aren’t doing well in the league so far and occupy the last two positions of the IPL 2023 points table. While DC sits at the tenth spot, SRH are at the ninth place.

Pitch report:

The Arun Jaitley Stadium is known for its short boundaries and offers a batter-friendly track. However, the spinners will also receive some help from the surface as the game progresses. The dew factor will play a role in the game as well. A high-scoring game is expected to take place at the venue.

Probable XIs:

Delhi Capitals: David Warner (c), Philip Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Sarfaraz Khan, Axar Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, Ripal Patel, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Marco Jansen, Abdul Samad, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
