Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

The 2024 IPL will bring us the furiously competitive matches of Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. It will be interesting to see how both sides fare after the overhaul brought on by the IPL auction. The Delhi side has seen many ups and downs since its inception and has come into its own recently. Under coach Ponting, the Delhi Capitals have been doing immensely well in the last few years. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad went to the playoffs almost every year until a few years ago. The side has been struggling, and its top players have not performed up to their level. The Delhi-Hyderabad DC vs SRH rivalry has been a treat to watch over all these years. No team has dominated the other throughout the last decade. Both the teams - DC & SRH didn't perform well in the IPL 2023 and were positioned in the 9th & 10th spots in the IPL points table.

More about Delhi and Hyderabad

The runners-up of IPL 2020, Delhi Capitals, would be keen on repeating their good performance. They have retained the young and fearless Rishabh Pant, the left-arm spinner Axar Patel, the attacking opener Prithvi Shaw, and a gun pace bowler Anrich Nortje. They will be looking to build their team around these four. The exclusion of Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin, Stoinis, and former captain Shreyas Iyer surprised many. However, the retentions are never easy to decide, and there are always going to be some top players that will be released by franchises.
To put it simply, the Capitals drafted Pant as #1 on their list of retained players. He has also been the DC vs SRH man of the match, where he scored a match-winning 128 against Hyderabad in 2018. As soon as Iyer ruled himself out, Shaw was given the position. Nortje and Axar were more difficult for the Capitals to agree upon. It is important to note that the franchise may select only four players.
Gautam Gambhir stepped down as captain of Delhi Capitals in 2018, and Iyer took over the reins, leading the franchise to their first-ever IPL final in 2020. However, owing to the COVID-19 epidemic, he had to sit out the IPL 2021, which was suspended in May. Iyer was demoted to second-stringer after suffering an injury setback.
Delhi Capitals (DC) added former IPL team captains Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane to their roster for IPL 2020. However, Rishabh Pant led the team until 2022. After Pant's accident in December 2022, he took a break, and David Warner captained the team in the 2023 season. However, Rishabh Pant will captain the team in the IPL 2024.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers would want to learn from their mistakes in the past two years. They would want to focus on overhauling their T20 approach, which is not working any longer. Since their inception, they have been a bowling-dependent team focused on getting a decent total and letting their bowlers take care of things. When the bowlers had a bad day, they would lose.
In 2023 season, SRH finished at the bottom of the DC vs SRH points table, making it a year to forget for the team. The bowling attack of Sunrisers Hyderabad has long been regarded as the strongest in the IPL. In 2024, Delhi Capitals' team includes Ishant Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav, and Anrich Nortje. These players aim to be in top form for the upcoming IPL season.
Pre-auction retention figures for the IPL 2024 mega-auction have surprised everyone. Rishabh Pant has been retained, which is understandable given that he is the leading candidate for the captaincy. Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, and Axar Patel are the other holdovers. Manish Pandey, and Sarfarash Khan, along with the other 9 players were released by DC.
