This clash is between two underdogs that have proved their skills every time they appeared on the field. Sunrisers Hyderabad Vs Delhi Capitals is a battle we all wait for. Both the teams are equally talented and the players make sure to give their best every time they come on the field.

Delhi Capitals was initially called Delhi Daredevils and can be recognised by their sky blue jersey. They have been one of the most promising teams in the Indian Premier League , however, they haven’t won an IPL title yet. One of the strengths of the team is its batting unit. Players like Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan are an asset to the team. Their famous theme song called Roar Macha is a tune every fan loves to listen to. The captain of the team is 26 years old Shreyas Iyer , who is exceptionally talented and vital to the team.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad is owned by Kalanithi Maran (Sun TV Network) and was founded in 2012 after Deccan Chargers was terminated from the IPL. The team is currently led by David Warner, with their home ground being Rajiv Gandhi International cricket stadium. They have won one Indian Premier League trophy till date, in 2016. Sunrisers Hyderabad recently signed JK Lakshmi Cement as their title sponsor. The team's fans identify themselves as 'Orange Army' as the entire stadium gets filled with people wearing Orange when SRH plays a home game.
