Disappointed by today’s performance by @DelhiCapitals they are lot better than how they played today. The young guns have to take the lead and responsibility. #Powerplay is key! Again it was @jbairstow21 who took game away. Good fight by #Capitals bowlers. #DCvSRH #VivoIPL2019

Champion stuff from @MohammadNabi007 in back to back games. What a player! #DCvSRH — Prasenjit Dey (@CricPrasen) April 4, 2019
Earlier, after being asked to bat first, Delhi lost their openers early on a slow wicket and struggled for momentum.
Dhawan vs off-spinners

Nabi is arguably the best finger spinner in limited overs. He has a good arm ball and varies his pace/length #DCvSRH — Bharath Ramaraj (@Fancricket12) April 4, 2019
Rishabh Pant had all the time to build an innings but fell early trying to go for a six.
That’s six wickets in two games for the President. Didn’t get to play many games last season but he is making it count big time this year. Top stuff by Mohd Nabi! #DCvSRH

Pant and Shaw, both need to apply themselves first and then go for big shots. Good thing is , Both are youngsters and there is plenty of time and hope both learns. — srikrishna (@1998Srikrishna) April 4, 2019
Shreyas Iyer was the lone man fighting for his side with his 43. Delhi huffed and puffed their way to 129/8.
You can’t attack Rasidh khan with conventional shots. You can’t outskill him. You have to outsmart him.

He has a few issues against seam bowling, but Iyer is one of the better players of spin going around in the domestic circuit. In the game v KKR, he was nicely tackling Kuldeep's angle #DCvSRH — Bharath Ramaraj (@Fancricket12) April 4, 2019
Delhi have so many stroke players in their batting line up, players who love the ball coming onto the bat. Traditional Feroz Shah Kotla wicket isn't best suited for them. If pitch continues to be like what it is, most probably it will, doesn't serve them well #DDvSRH #IPL2019

Kotla needs a revamp more badly than RCB's squad. Enough said. #IPL2019 — Manya (@CSKian716) April 4, 2019
Good disciplined bowing effort from SRH. Never let DC get away.
Even Bhuvneshwar Kumar seems like a better T20 captain than Virat Kohli.#DCvSRH

In the chase, Jonny Bairstow got Hyderabad off to a flying start as he raced away to 48 in just 28 balls.
Bairstow is smoking them redder than his hair #DCvSRH — Rohit Sankar (@imRohit_SN) April 4, 2019
Jonny Bairstow is outscoring David Warner comfortably for the second time in two games.

Takes a brave man to let the only Indian batsman of international quality in your team go but what a deal it has been for SRH! Solved their middle order issues with Shankar as a part of the deal and got a top class opener from the auctions. Two birds in one stone. — . (@CricAussieFan) April 4, 2019
Jonny Bairstow has virtually finished it for #Sunrisers.
— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 4, 2019
Hyderabad lost a flurry of wickets since the dismissal of Jonny Bairstow but Mohammad Nabi and Yusuf Pathan saw them home.
These two middle orders are as thin as a McAloo Tikki patty. #DCvSRH — Tareque Laskar (@tarequelaskar) April 4, 2019
Why arent young Indian batsmen imbibing the greatest quality of Virat Kohli into their system? Moulding their batting as per the required run rate & situation.#KingKohli

This could be so near yet so far for Delhi. Now you get forced to think if they could've managed to squeeze 10-15 runs more, the match would've become damn interesting. #DCvSRH — Tanmay (@fast_hostile) April 4, 2019
Lol Afghans ain't having any of that "nail-biting" bs. SRH are gifted to have Rashid AND Nabi in their lower order. #IPL2019
— Arjun Chopra (@ArjunChopra_8) April 4, 2019
Mohammad Nabi, you beauty. Serious, serious cricketer. One of the top all rounders in white ball cricket today. #IPL2019 — Srini Mama (@SriniMaama16) April 4, 2019
The match would've been a lot closer if DC had grabbed their chances and half chances. And you expect a young team like them to throw themselves around, not falter in the field.
A disappointing string of performances from DELHI. AS ALWAYS. #IPL2019
