STAT ATTACK : Delhi Daredevils vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

DD vs SRH Stats


After a 4-day break, lengthy by IPL standards, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team returns to on-field action to continue their conquest of a playoff spot, something a win today would assure them of. After a brittle start, the Sunrisers received two major boosts – Shikhar Dhawan’s return to form & Yuvraj Singh’s return from injury. Just as it seemed all was in place for David Warner’s team, Ashish Nehra was picked up a hamstring injury ruling him out for the rest of the IPL season. While Nehra will be missed, Hyderabad still have the impressive Mustafizur Rahman and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar in their attack.

Delhi Daredevils started the season well, but a recent slump has seen them lose 4 of their last 5 matches. Their batsmen seem to have hit a bad patch and the team’s performance has dipped severely. A win today keeps Delhi in contention. Losing wouldn’t rule them out tonight, but results from other matches may mean that Delhi could be out before they play their final game.

With six teams still fighting for playoff spots, this a match where neither team would want to falter.
