The Sunrisers Hyderabad had a golden opportunity to bolster their chances of a top-four finish in IPL 2020 last weekend against the Kings XI Punjab. However, the Orange Army failed to chase down 127 runs against KL Rahul's side.
Although skipper David Warner gave SRH a brilliant start, the likes of Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Priyam Garg, and Jason Holder could not take their team over the line. SRH are alive in the race for the IPL 2020 playoffs, but they need to win their remaining three fixtures.
The 2016 champions battle the Delhi Capitals in the first of these three games. While the Delhi-based franchise have been excellent overall in IPL 2020, they looked off color in their last game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Also, SRH have beaten DC once already this year, so Warner's men would back themselves to perform well in this contest.
Here's a look at their head-to-head stats in IPL before DC and SRH clash in match number 47 of IPL 2020.
