Delhi Capitals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in match number 58 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.
The two teams will be battling it out in this IPL 2019 Eliminator.
It promises to be a fascinating contest in Vizag.
DC had finished third in the standings, whereas, SRH ended fourth.
Here is the detailed match preview.
These two teams have faced each other 14 times in the past. SRH have won a staggering nine games, while DC pocketed a total of five wins. Earlier this season, both teams won one encounter each.
DC will be keen to build on their bowling heroics and dictate the show.
The target will be to attack SRH's shaky batting line-up.
The presence of Trent Boult and Ishant Sharma could give DC added impetus.
Shreyas Iyer will be wanting to take control of the batting unit.
The likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant have crucial roles to play as well.
The major issue for the Orange Army is their batting which looks flawed.
The middle order in particular can be shaky.
Therefore, the onus lies on skipper Kane Williamson to stand tall and take charge.
On the bowling front, SRH are strong just as DC.
Khaleel Ahmed and Rashid Khan are SRH's best bets with the ball.
SRH need to produce enough substance.
Williamson played a fine knock in the previous encounter and he needs to be present for SRH to carry their batting.
Manish Pandey has enjoyed some form with the bat and could be influential as well.
Khaleel is their prime asset with the ball.
For DC, Dhawan needs to provide a strong start for the side.
Boult's exploits with the new ball is important.
The pitch in Vizag is expected to be on the slower side.
That will see spinners play an important role.
Anything around 150-160 will be massive.
Recently, India and Australia had issues scoring here in a T20I.
The Eliminator is scheduled for 7:30 PM start IST.
