IPL 2024, DC vs SRH IPL Highlights Latest News


April 23, 2024

IPL 2024 Delhi Capitals vs. Sunrisers Hyderabad, DC vs. SRH IPL Highlights: With a remarkable spell of play and a four-for, T Natarajan helped Sunrisers Hyderabad defeat Delhi Capitals by a commanding 67 runs. SRH climbed to the second position on the points table with the victory. With a half-century off 16 balls, Travis Head lit the stage on fire as Sunrisers Hyderabad amassed 266/7 in 20 overs. Head (89) and Abhishek Sharma (46), together with SRH, broke the record for the greatest powerplay score in T20 cricket history, which stood at 125. 300 seemed possible at one point, but Kuldeep Yadav took three fast wickets to keep them from getting there. Shahbaz Ahmed’s 59* run effort at the end of the innings added a lovely closing touch as well.

The Delhi Capitals are returning to the nation’s capital for their first “home” game of the 2024 Indian Premier League after playing two games in the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam, where they have adopted a new home. They defeated the reigning champion Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs in their first game in Vizag, but they lost their second game against Kolkata Knight Riders by 106 runs.

It will be skipper Rishabh Pant’s first performance in front of the Delhi home crowd after he came back to the field following a 15-month hiatus to recuperate from an automobile accident in December 2022. After having a slow start to the IPL 2024 season, Pant found his stride and amassed 210 runs in seven games for Delhi, scoring back-to-back fifties and putting himself in the running for a position in India’s T20 World Cup squad. Not to be overlooked, Pant was praised for his outstanding captaincy in the last game, where he was named Player of the Match. He has also been outstanding behind the stumps.

When the Capitals host the 2016 winners today at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi, they should be cautious of a scorching Sunrisers Hyderabad team. After defeating CSK at home and winning two away games against Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru, SRH won all three of their remaining games in the season. Sunrisers Hyderabad, presently ranked fourth in the IPL points table after winning four of their last six games, have set a whole new standard with two of the highest-ever totals of 277/3 and 287/3, which will be difficult to overcome without a great deal of bravery and talent.

While strong victories over the Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants have placed Delhi back in the mix, they have had a mixed season overall. They are now sixth in the table after seven games played, with three victories and four losses.
In order to silence players like Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, and Heinrich Klaasen during the match in New Delhi, Pant would therefore have to rely solely on his bowlers. Delhi’s left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (economy of 6.06) might turn the course of the match against SRH, and in Tristan Stubbs, the captain has found the perfect third spin partner to go with Axar Patel (6.75).However, everyone will be watching to see how Ishant Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed counter Head and Sharma in the powerplay.

The bowlers have been the main worry for SRH this season; only captain Cummins (7.87) has an economy rate of less than eight runs per over, which is good in Twenty20 cricket. While the tweakers, left-arm spinner Shahbaz Ahmed (ER 12.44) and wrist spinner Mayank Markande (11.23), have been put on a leather hunt, the experienced pace combination of Jaydev Unadkat (11.35) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (10.45) have both been mediocre.
