Just days after the first game between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), the two sides now meet for the reverse fixture. This game will now be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi and is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
The struggling Delhi side had won the previous encounter. An insipid batting performance from Hyderabad and an exceptional bowling performance from the visitors made sure that David Warner’s side win their 2nd game on the bounce.
Hyderabad are on a 3-match losing streak and they need to snap this streak. A loss for them would push themselves to the bottom of the table. Despite having some big names in their roster, the Aiden Markram led side hasn’t been able to put on their best performances.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s DC vs SRH game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi:
1. Axar Patel (Delhi Capitals)
Keeping in mind the slow nature of the Delhi pitch, spinners traditionally have been among the wicket-takers. Axar Patel has been in good form, both with the bat and with the ball. He bagged the player of the match award in the previous game for scoring 34 runs and then picking up 2 wickets.
He can be a good vice-captain choice in your team. Incidentally, he is also the vice-captain of the Delhi Capitals outfit.
2. Aiden Markram (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
With 124 runs in 6 games so far, the South African batter hasn’t been at his best. But we are all aware of his potential and his ability to play those big innings. If he can get into the groove early on in the innings, he could well go on to make a big knock.
3. Kuldeep Yadav (Delhi Capitals)
A slow turned and it naturally becomes a paradise for Kuldeep Yadav. The wily left-arm chinaman bowler is the leading wicket-taker for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023 so far. He has bagged 7 wickets and has had an average of 23.86.
Kuldeep’s performance will be vital if DC are to bag the honours of this game. He has been a match-winner and if he gets going, he will absolutely be unstoppable.
