Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad are set to battle it out in the first eliminator of IPL 2019, to be played at Visakhapatnam. The Capitals will look to maintain their impressive winning run while the Sunrisers would hope to rediscover their early season form.

Delhi Capitals are looking like a reincarnated force, and have played some scintillating cricket in this campaign. Initially regarded as the underdogs, the Capitals have shown that they have the potential to clinch their maiden IPL title.

Delhi’s batting has been one of their major strengths this season, and they would be hoping for the same kind of dominant performance in this must-win match. That said, the absence of Purple Cap holder Kagiso Rabada could hurt them.

On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad have struggled to find their feet in this edition of the IPL. Runners-up last year, they had to depend on other teams' results to qualify for the playoffs despite some sensational performances by David Warner and Jonny Bairstow.

Their batting lineup has been inconsistent throughout this season, and despite the fact that Manish Pandey has regained his touch, the departures of Warner and Bairstow have hit them. Their bowling too is a worry, especially since Rashid Khan has not been taking too many wickets this season.
