The battle between defending champion Sunrisers Hyderabad and table bottom Delhi Daredevils in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 all set to be held at Feroz Shah Kotla on Tuesday Night. The hosts Daredevils have nothing to lose but the visitors have plenty to receive.  They will eye for a victory to boost their chance to qualify for the play-offs. The match 40 between Delhi Daredevils vs Sunrisers Hyderabad is scheduled to begin at 8 PM IST | 2:30 PM GMT on Tuesday, 2nd May 2017.



The Delhi franchise has many international stars in both batting and bowling departments but they failed to utilize them according to the conditions and situations. In their last game against Kings XI Punjab, they bowled out for their lowest total in IPL 67. A dismal batting display and bad shot selection cost the side heavily.

In the last match, Karun Nair led Daredevils in absence of regular skipper Zaheer Khan. In the last game, Corey Anderson was the highest scorer for Delhi with 18 runs. Only three batsmen, including Anderson, reached the double digits.

Though, Delhi have an outstanding pace bowling attack comprised of Pat Cummins, Mohammed Shami, Kagiso Rabada and Chris Morris, their batting department, throughout the tournament failed to give them robust support.

The batting department has talented youngsters like Sanju Samson, Sam Billings, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer but the absence of experienced batsman affected their chance in IPL 2017. As Zaheer Khan is not available, Karun Nair will lead the side once again on Tuesday.

Now, it is a big question whether Daredevils will be able to bounce back or not in the ongoing IPL.



In the last game at home, the Hyderabad franchise registered an emphatic 48 runs victory against in-form Kolkata Knight Riders. Batting first, Sunrisers skipper David Warner battered Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers during his 126 runs innings. Riding on Warner’s century Sunrisers Hyderabad have post 209 runs on the board.

The Knight Riders, in reply, bowled out for 161, courtesy to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, and Siddharth Kaul’s two wickets haul each.

Nevertheless, in this away game they will eye for a victory to grab the second position in the points table.

The Hyderabad franchise has an intimidating batting attack comprised of Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques.

The bowling department is rightly balanced with seamers and spinners. The Bhuvneshwar Kumar lead bowling attack has a talented Afghan spinner, Rashid Khan.
