IPL 2021, DC vs SRH Preview: Bolstered by Shreyas Iyer’s return, Delhi Capitals will look to maintain the form they showed in the first half of the season as they resume their IPL campaign against a struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Wednesday.
Delhi are currently sitting on the second spot, with 12 points from eight games. On the other hand, Sunrisers are placed at the last spot, with just a solitary win from seven games and six losses. The Rishabh Pant-led side ended the first half of the IPL with a win and would be keen to start on a winning note.
