Delhi Capitals have been the team to beat so far with two wins in two games. While their first game was an absolute thriller against KXIP, the likes of Anrich Nortje and Prithvi Shaw came to the fore as they decimated Chennai Super Kings by 44 runs.
While their bowling attack has done the damage of late, their batting unit is slowly finding its feet in the competition, which could spell doom for the others sides in this competition.
On the other hand, it has been a completely different story for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are winless after two games in IPL 2020. Most of their worries have been associated with their fragile middle order with David Warner's slow start to the season also compounding those woes.
However, SRH are more than capable of bouncing back with a good performance, especially with a solid bowling attack led by Rashid Khan.
SRH would feel at ease looking at the head-to-head record which reads 9-6 in their favour. However, they will be hoping for an improved performance from the likes of Saha and Nabi in the middle order, with both not setting the world ablaze in their previous encounter.
Thus, we should be in for another cracking game with both teams looking for two points to gain some momentum heading into the middle phase of the tournament.

Match: Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Match 11
Date: 29th September 2020, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
A very competitive game beckons at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Tuesday with something in it for both the batsmen and the bowlers. The pacers have found some swing early on in all three IPL 2020 games at this venue although batting against the new ball with the field restrictions on is relatively easier.
As the innings progresses, the spinners will come into play, paving the way for an exciting contest between them and the batsmen.
The average first innings score at this venue this IPL season is 167 with the chasing team coming out trumps twice. With dew also bound to come into play, one wouldn't be surprised if the captains opt to bowl first upon winning the toss.
