IPL 2021 match 20, DC (Delhi Capitals) vs SRH (Sunrisers Hyderabad) cricket match had been scheduled today in which DC won in super over.
Delhi Capitals won the toss and Rishabh Pant chose to bat first given the reputation of the Chennai wickets which get terribly slow in the second innings and it becomes a headache to chase. Teams have even defended 130 odd runs on this pitch, while DC and Sunrisers Hyderabad have seemingly found a cheat code having chased down runs successfully in their last matches.
Capitals started off well with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw going after the SRH bowling which is below par after Bhuvneshwar Kumar was ruled out due to a thigh strain, leaving Rashid Khan and Khaleel Ahmed as the frontline bowlers. A solid 53 at the top from Prithvi Shaw was followed by a decent 58-run partnership between Steve Smith (34*) and Rishabh Pant (37) as Delhi Capitals got to 159 for 4 against Sunrisers in Chennai. This was after Delhi skipper Pant won the toss and opted to bat first. The much-criticised Chepauk track is hosting its 10th and final game of the season tonight. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) need to chase down a target of 160 to win against Delhi Capitals (DC).
