Delhi Capitals have won the toss and elected to bowl first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Game 11 of IPL 2020, in Abu Dhabi.

DC skipper Shreyas Iyer says the team has made one change with Ishant Sharma returning from his injury and playing in place of Avesh Khan.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are finally playing Kane Williamson who is taking Mohammad Nabi’s overseas player slot. Abdul Samad is also in for Wriddhiman Saha.

Squads

Sunrisers Hyderabad (Playing XI): David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wicketkeeper), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan.

Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Shreyas Iyer(captain), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Anrich Nortje

Preview

Shreyas’ Capitals are high on confidence after two wins on the trot while SunRisers Hyderabad are the only team without a point so far this season, having lost both their fixtures so far.

In their first game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), which went into the Super Over, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada ensured a win for DC before they comprehensively defeated a star-studded Chennai Super Kings in the next match.

On the other hand, SRH will have to address their batting woes as barring skipper Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Manish Pandey, the other have failed to perform. The inclusion of Kane Williamson will be a definite bonus for the side.

In their bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is once again leading the pace attack. However, the 30-year-old hasn't been close to his best so far. He cannot be judged on the basis of just two games, but the pacer needs to find his rhythm as soon as possible. He would need support from Sandeep Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed. Rashid Khan will once again spearhead the spin attack and a lot will depend on how the Afghanistan spinner performs as he is capable of changing the outcome of a game.
