DC vs SRH Match Preview – The ACA-VDCA Stadium is all set to host the Eliminator of the IPL 2019 between DC and SRH here on Wednesday.
Despite having a brilliant start to the tournament, the Kane Williamson-led SRH could not hold its winning flow and get scattered during the mid-season. The team lost its control over the game and found difficult to win matches, especially the away ones.
Till Jonny Bairstow’s and David Warner’s presence in the team, SRH performed up to the mark, but after their leaving, the Orange Army couldn’t maintain the same blow.
However, Sunrisers Hyderabad qualified for the playoffs as KKR lost its last game against the Mumbai Indians.
On the other hand, the Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals has been absolutely phenomenal throughout the season with their performance in all the three departments of the game.
The players of Delhi Capitals are on the higher end of confidence and are looking in a very good form.
Now, it’ll be very interesting to see which team will eliminate the other one tonight to play 2nd qualifier of the playoffs.
Here are the match preview, Dream 11 fantasy league teams, pitch report, weather conditions, our power picks, and all the details of today’s match.
