Not much time left now. We will have the first ball in 90 minutes. SRH has to win the toss, bat first, bat big. That's their only chance. 

16:38 (IST)

Some good news for Chennai Super Kings. CEO says Dwayne Bravo and man in form Ambati Rayudu will be available for the upcoming games.

16:06 (IST)

Meanwhile RCB head Simon Katich has asked the team to be a little 'ruthless.' He says if RCB wants to close off games, then they have to be flawless.

15:37 (IST)

Can Delhi make it 3 in 3?

15:16 (IST)

In the battle of spinners, it is the SRH who looks set to dominate. Don't forget they have Mohammad Nabi and the great Rashid Khan who can run through middle order on their day. Both can bat as well and be handy in the fag end of the innings.

14:45 (IST)

Sunrisers have a 9-6 head to head record against Delhi. But this new look Capitals have a 2-1 record over SRH. Interesting!

14:28 (IST)

Meanwhile Ravi Ashwin has hit the gym but unfortunately he won't be playing tonight. According to Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer, the management wants to give him a rest for at least 2 to 3 games.

14:01 (IST)

Meanwhile Blackcaps are set to have an interesting summer. You can also check the full list of fixtures.

13:45 (IST)

Who do you think will star with the bat as far as Delhi Capitals is concerned? We think Prithvi Shaw, in all likelihood, will maintain his good run. Add Shreyas Iyer and then you have a Marcus Stoinis in the middle. Also, very important that Pant can bat through the innings if he walks in early. And then accelerate in the fag end of the innings.

13:26 (IST)

Here is our analysis. Five players who can star tonight:

1. SHIMRON HETMYER

2. KAGISO RABADA 

3. RISHABH PANT

4. DAVID WARNER 

5. JONNY BAIRSTOW

13:11 (IST)

The feeling is mutual, Lisa.

12:58 (IST)

Well, Delhi Capitals look the superior side on paper. Reason: The presence of some world-class pacers in their set up. Remember what Shreyas Iyer said in last game's post-match presentation. He said that he is 'lucky' to have the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje in the playing eleven.

12:44 (IST)

Food for thought!

12:38 (IST)

Speaking about Nortje, the Protea bowled stunning four overs against CSK in Dubai. Here are his figures. Four overs , 21 Runs, 2 Wickets. But more importantly, 12 dot balls!

12:18 (IST)

To be very frank, odds are heavily stacked against SRH. They don't show promise when it comes to their middle order. Add to it a well balanced bowling line-up that DC posses. They are missing Ashwin and Ishant and yet they were able to strangle CSK in their last game. Anrich Nortje can be the x-factor.

12:05 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Siddarth Kaul, Billy Stanlake and Sandeep Sharma These are the full-time pacers currently available to SRH. Not to mention Vijay Shankar who can be a handy seamer as well.  

11:56 (IST)

SRH skipper knows it has to be him who has to step up tonight. Well, see these shots!

11:50 (IST)

The Capitals have a net run rate of + 1.1. That's way ahead of their closest rivals Rajasthan who had a net run rate of +0.615. The Capitals have to lose and lose big to fluff their run rate.

11:47 (IST)

Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals are the only two teams who haven't lost a game in the tourney and are rightly placed at the top two standings of the IPL Points tally.

DC vs SRH IPL 2020 Match Day Live Updates: Bowling Heavy SRH up Against Sublime Delhi Capitals

DC vs SRH Predicted XI Live Updates IPL 2020: Not much time left now. We will have the first ball in 90 minutes. SRH has to win the toss, bat first, bat big. That's their only chance.

Preview: The Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals (DC), high on confidence after two wins on the trot, will be up against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), the only team without a point, in the 11th match of the IPL here on Tuesday. While DC will aim for a hat-trick of wins, the David Warner-captained SRH would aim to register their first win of the season, having lost two of their previous outings against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). In their first game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), which went into the Super Over, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada ensured a win for DC before they comprehensively defeated a star-studded Chennai Super Kings in the next match.

In batting, the DC top-order comprising Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw will look to lay the foundation of a big total. While Shaw looks in good nick with the willow, Dhawan is dish out something special. Rishabh Pant and Iyer have also been in fine form. While the duo rescued DC after a top-order collapse against KXIP, they also chipped in with valuable contributions against CSK. Also, Aussie all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has proved his worth both with the bat and the ball and is expected to come up with late fireworks with Shimron Hetmyer.

In the bowling department, the South African pace duo Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have looked sharp so far. The DC team management will just hope Nortje to be a bit economical like his compatriot. In the absence of ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who is recovering from an injury, Axar Patel and Amit Mishra have performed decently well and they are once again likely to share the spin workload. Ashwin suffered an injury in their game against Punjab and his inclusion in the playing XI remains doubtful. On the other hand, SRH will have to address their batting woes as barring skipper Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Manish Pandey, the other have failed to perform. The 2016 champions need an explosive batter like Stoinis, Keiron Pollard and Andre Russell in the middle-order and in a move to strengthen it, the SRH team management might include Kane Williamson, replacing Afghanistan off-spinner Mohammad Nabi. In their bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will once again lead the pace attack. However, the 30-year-old hasn't been close to his best so far. He cannot be judged on the basis of just two games, but the pacer needs to find his rhythm as soon as possible. He would need support from Sandeep Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed. Rashid Khan will once again spearhead the spin attack and a lot will depend on how the Afghanistan spinner performs as he is capable of changing the outcome of a game.
