After opening their account in IPL 2021 with a win against the Punjab Kings (PBKS), the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be keen to record another victory in the competition. SRH will play their next game against the in-form Delhi Capitals at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
The Hyderabad-based franchise seemed to have finally adapted to the conditions in Chennai as they crushed the Punjab Kings in their last outing.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Capitals have registered three wins in their four IPL 2021 games so far. The Rishabh Pant-led outfit snapped its losing streak against the Mumbai Indians a few nights ago in Chennai.
