DEL vs HYD, 40th Match



In the 40th match of the IND T20 League 2023, the bottom-placed DEL will square off against the 9th-placed HYD in Saturday's evening encounter. David Warner-led side Delhi is currently on a two-match winning run. On the other side, Aiden Markram-led Hyderabad is on a three-match losing streak. This match between the two sides will take place from Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi at 07:30 PM on 29th April.

Delhi has played 7 matches in the league so far and has won 2 matches, losing 5 matches whereas, the Orange Army also has played 7 matches, winning 2 and losing 5 matches. But HYD stands above DEL in the points table having a quite better run rate than the Northern side.

In the first half of the league where DEL defeated HYD in a low-scoring game while setting the target of 145 for the Orange Army in the 34th match. The quality spells from Ishant, Axar, Nortje and Mukesh put HYD in the backfoot and DEL won the game by 7 runs, reducing Hyderabad to 137/6 and picking its second win of the season.

Now, in the second half of the season, both sides will meet each other once again in the same venue and DEL once again looking to beat HYD to claim its third win of the tournament.

Both sides have faced each other in 22 matches in IND T20 League. Out of these 22 games, Warner's army has won 11 matches whereas HYD comes out victorious 11 times.

Match Prediction

By looking at both teams, HYD's unit looks balanced, but the momentum DEL has in the last 2 matches adds an advantage to its side to register a win against the Orange army at home. Warner's side has not lost any game against Markram's side in the last 2 seasons. We expect DEL to win this match after winning its last against the same opponent.


Top Fantasy Picks

David Warner: The left-handed batter and the skipper of DEL is currently the fifth-highest run scorer in the tournament with over 300 runs, including four fifties in 7 games he played so far in the IND T20 League. In addition, the veteran batter has scored 145 runs at an average of around 50 in the last games played at the home venue here in Delhi, including 2 half-centuries as well.  

Axar Patel: The left-handed all-rounder will be another top pick ahead for the 40th match day. Patel's all-around abilities are unmatched as the 29-year-old is in terrific form with both bat and ball. In addition, HYD has been the worst team while facing left-arm spin this season. 

Heinrich Klaasen: The wicket-keeper batter will be another great choice for this game. The Proteas batter has looked in brilliant form with the bat but unfortunately has not been able to play a match-winning knock so far for the Orange Army. Klaasen will be an integral part of the HYD side against spin and will be one of the players to watch out for in this game. 

Rahul Tripathi: The right-handed batter is having a below-average season going by his standard for 9th-placed HYD. He has only one half-century in 7 games this season in the IND T20 League. He will play a crucial role in today's match for HYD.


Risky Captaincy Choice

Mukesh Kumar: Delhi's medium fast bowler has been picked by many in the last game after his match-winning last over against HYD in the 34th league match. Mukesh can play a huge role with his bowling role in every phase of the game. His ability to take breakthroughs can be a huge difference-maker going forward in this game.
