The table toppers Delhi Capitals will lock horns with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 11th match of the IPL 2020. Delhi Capitals under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer and coaching of the Australian legend Ricky Pointing have been doing a great job and are yet to taste defeat this season. SRH on the other side have been struggling to get past the line and with their injury woes to key players like Kane Williamson and Mitchell Marsh has only made things worse for them.
Delhi Capitals after a very close finish in their first match against KXIP, which they won in the super over made a much lighter work against the CSK. The score of 175 seemed not enough against the standards of CSK but the batsmen of CSK failed once again making it two times in a row. Delhi Capitals will be looking to continue their reign at the top of the table.
The SRH team are having an uncharacteristic IPL season as they are usually in better position. The team has been struggling with both injuries and form issues of the players. The main headache for the 2016 title winners is the form of their captain David Warner and injury concern of the star middle-order batsman Kane Williamson. The middle-order seems to be in disarray even after the addition of Mohammad Nabi.
Can the Bottom Dwellers finally bounce back and open their account? Or will the table toppers continue their prime form and make it three in three?

The weather as always is expected to be on the clear side with no chance of rain. The temperature has dropped a bit in the desert country and is likely to hover in the 31-32 degree mark with humidity reaching 67%.
The Pitch in Abu Dhabi has been quite batsman friendly and is likely to continue the same way. The spinners may get some assistance later in the innings once the pitch starts to hold up. Overall, it seems to be a batsman friendly pitch. With due again certain to play a part the team batting second should have the advantage.
The service of Ravichandran Ashwin will not be available for the DC as he is still recovering from the shoulder injury he had during the first match against KXIP. Though the bowler told him he was fit. The DC captain Shreyas Iyer stated that the management wanted to give the off-spinner ample amount of time to recover as he is one of the key players for DC. Capitals will be happy to play the same Xl that defeated the three time champions Chennai Super Kings.
SRH on the other side have very limited options. With Kane Willamson requiring another week to completely recover. David Warner and Co. will want to strengthen their middle-order and for that reason they could replace Priyam Garg with Virat Singh.
