After beating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the eliminator match, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will face Delhi Capitals (DC) in the second qualifier of the IPL 2020. While both the teams are going against each other for the third time this year, DC is coming after losing a match against the Mumbai Indians (MI) very harshly, and SRH is coming after winning a close one. The thing worth noting here is that DC lost both the matches against SRH in the league stages. So SRH already has a psychological advantage. But DC has had a good season as well, thus both the teams would go hard against each other, and another IPL T20 thriller is expected.

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE
The weather is expected to be the same as what you saw the day before yesterday on the RCB vs SRH match. The temperature would drop a little at night, but the conditions are going to be pretty much the same as every other match. For getting more information about the weather of the match, keep following the live score section of Cricdaddy.
Pitch was good for both the batsman and bowlers in the last match played against RCB and SRH. There was seam, swing, and bounce in the first innings while there was a turn in the second. Dew didn’t seem too big a problem since it was very less. But it might be there today, so the team batting second might gain a little advantage.
SRH’s expected lineup – David Warner (C), Shreevats Goswami (W), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, and T Natarajan.
DC expected lineup – Shreyas Iyer (C), Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (WK), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Tushar Deshpande, Kagiso Rabada, and Anrich Nortje.
Match 59: Overall Prediction
It is hard to determine which team will win today. This is because either of the teams has great players who have stepped up during various phases of the tournament. One thing is for sure, for DC to play the final, it will need to get Williamson and Warner out pretty cheaply. DC has a very strong batting lineup which can exhaust the opposition bowlers on their day.
But even SRH has got a strong bowling lineup with T Natarajan being a hidden gem for them in this edition of the IPL T20. Cricdaddy, today’s match prediction, says that SRH might proceed to the final since the batting and bowling lineup of the team is pretty balanced. But DC can’t be ruled out because of Rabada leading the bowling attack for the team.
