The Preview

It’s still early days but it does feel strange to see a side with internationally-active and glamorous T20 players languish at the bottom of the table after the first week of the Indian Premier League 2020.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has been a consistent side in the tournament and to live up to the reputation, it needs to get its act together against Delhi Capitals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

New Zealand star Kane Williamson already declared that he is available for selection. His inclusion could be the turning point for David Warner’s side after losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.

IPL 2020: DC vs SRH - Head-to-head record, players to watch out for

Being the former captain, he is expected to know the revival route. But if he is in, the T20 World No. 1 all-rounder Mohammad Nabi may have to go out.

World No. 1 T20 spinner Rashid Khan has been ordinary so far with one wicket in two outings.
