It will be a clash of the bottom dwellers when Delhi Capitals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Saturday, April 29. Both teams have a similar record heading into the fixture, winning just two games out of their seven matches so far in the 16th edition of the tournament.
Even though Sunrisers Hyderabad are in the ninth place by virtue of a better net run rate, Delhi Capitals are the form side heading into the contest, winning both their previous two matches in IPL 2023. Meanwhile, the Orange Army will be looking to end their three-match losing streak and avenge the loss against the same opponents in their last outing.

DC vs SRH Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter: Mitchell Marsh
It has been a tournament to forget for the tall Aussie all-rounder so far, but Mitchell Marsh showed glimpses of his talent with a brisk cameo in the previous encounter. Marsh is likely to thrive on the surface in Delhi as it offers plenty of pace and bounce for the bowlers.
Probable best bowler: Mayank Markande
The 25-year-old legspinner from Punjab has been the most consistent performer for his side in this year’s tournament. He has scalped eight wickets in the tournament in just five outings and boasts of the best economy rate for any bowler with more than six wickets to their name in IPL 2023.
