Matchday 16 of IPL 2019 pits Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi Capitals against Kane Williamson’s Sunrisers Hyderabad on a flat Ferozshah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.
Delhi Capitals had been top of the IPL table if not for their late batting collapse against Kings XI Punjab in the last game. A collapse which will go down as the biggest collapse in IPL’s history. On the other
Delhi Capitals – WLWL
Delhi Capitals started the season strongly by beating Mumbai Indians in their opening match. It was followed by a defeat to Chennai Super Kings and super over win over Kolkata Knight Riders. Then came the great batting collapse in Mohali which gave Kings XI Punjab an unlikely victory.
Sunrisers Hyderabad – LWW
Sunrisers Hyderabad was unlucky in their opening fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders, if not for Russell’s blistering innings they might have won that game. But Sunrisers Hyderabad gave two strong back to back performances against Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

One player that can take the game from any opposition is Rishabh Pant. He had a great IPL last season and started the season with the same intent as well. His ability to clear the ropes with ease and his amazing strike rate makes him a complete game changer.
This year’s Orange cap holder, Hyderabad’s Australian opener David Warner is one of the most fearsome openers in world cricket. He has made a great comeback from his year-long suspension and is making his bat do all the talking. Century in last game shows how easily he can dominate the opposition bowlers.
