Match 16 of Vivo IPL 2019 will feature the Delhi Capitals battle it out with Sunrisers Hyderabad on 4th April at 8:00 pm. It promises to be a cracker of a contest because both the sides are on 2 wins each and will want to climb up the points table.

Delhi have had problems chasing and will look to set a score for SRH to chase if they win the toss. SRH have been unstoppable and their batsmen have made life difficult for opposition bowlers. The contest between Kagiso Rabada and the SRH openers will be one to watch out for.

Kane Williamson is expected to remain on the sidelines due to a niggle which he's nursing and they won't want to risk him in an away game, especially since the top order is already firing. Delhi have to send the SRH openers back in the shed early and if they do that, they will have the upper hand.

With plenty of popular names featuring in this game, it's bound to be a good one for IPL Fantasy players and here we take a look at who the X-Factor will be for this match.

Jonny Bairstow can be the X-Factor in today's match and this is not just due to the form he's in. Bairstow played a sublime innings, scoring 114 off 56 balls against a hapless RCB bowling attack and will expect more of the same against Delhi.

Bairstow is a very versatile player who knows how to handle pressure and even if he gets a slow start, he can easily make up for it later in the innings. On a 2-paced Delhi track which might see some dew, he will be the player to watch out for. He will also have plenty of work behind the stumps and that will give him additional points.
