In DC's last match against KKR, Ishant Sharma set the tone for his team by picking a wicket on the first ball of the game.

On the bowling front, the pace trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma and Siddharth Kaul have been decent while the Afghan spin duo of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi have also been impressive in the middle overs.

While the batting has looked good in the last game for DC, they will need to be at the top of their game against an SRH unit that is considered one of the best bowling units in the competition with Rashid, Nabi and Bhuvneshwar Kumar leading the show. Iyer scored 45 but took 45 balls to get them.

Second innings: Chasing 156, SRH were off to a flier with openers Jonny Bairstow and David Warner forging a 72-run stand. Warner was uncharacteristically slow and it was left to Bairstow to take the chances. Ishant Sharma and Chris Morris also bowled well in the last match. The Sunrisers, however, lost Bairstow at an inopportune juncture with Paul dismissing him in the 10th over.

At the halfway stage, the Sunrisers were 73 for 1 with 83 more runs needed for a win and they were on track.

Bhui's dismissal in the 16th over piled on further pressure on the Sunrisers.

The Proteas' premier fast bowler did it again for the Capitals side as his 4-22 in 3.5 overs (5.73 economy) ensured a handsome victory over the deteriorating Sunrisers outfit at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Rabada got rid of Vijay Shankar (1) off the next delivery and with it, the game was as good as over in favour of the Delhi Capitals.

Besides Dhawan and Pant, skipper Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw have also been among the runs and the Delhi batsmen would be looking to fire in unison against Hyderabad.

Senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar returned with figures of 2/33 while leg-spinner Rashid Khan and Abhishek Sharma took a wicket apiece as the Sunrisers' bowlers made it hard for the Delhi batsmen to score runs.

The southpaw notched 40 runs off 24 balls with four boundaries and three sixes.

Delhi Capitals struggled with openers Dhawan and Shaw back into the dressing room by the fourth over and Ahmed accounting for both the batsmen. SRH's premier fast-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be tasked with sending him into the hut early.

Delhi Capitals: Shreyas Iyer (capt), Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Colin Ingram, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Ankush Bains, Harshal Patel, Manjot Kalra, Chris Morris, Sherfane Rutherford, Jalaj Saxena, Sandeep Lamichhane, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Nathu Singh, Bandaru Ayyappa, Colin Munro.
