This game will be the second year we have seen a SRH vs DC clash. The Delhi Capitals changed their name ahead of the 2019 season in an attempt to rejuvenate the franchise after previously been called the Delhi Daredevils. They have never won the IPL title, something they will be hoping changes with their name change over the coming years.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the IPL title before, they secured their first and only title back in 2016 and have also reached a final in 2018, although were beaten by the Chennai Super Kings in that one. They play their home games at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium and will be looking to bring more success to that stadium in 2020 and beyond.

SRH vs DC
The Delhi Capitals play at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi, and they are hoping to add to the buzz that has been around the ground since their name change. This is a chance for the franchise to make a new start, and last season was a move in the right direction for them, but more is still needed to win a title. They have something to build on, and because of that, they have become one of the more interesting IPL franchises.
SRH vs DC 2018
The SRH vs DC 2018 meeting was the last one between these teams when Delhi were named the Daredevils. They failed to win the game, after posting a reachable total for the Sunrisers to chase down in the game.
Batting first, Delhi was led by Prithvi Shaw who scored 65 runs off 36 balls and Shreyas Iyer, who backed him up nicely with 44 from 36. In total, Delhi reached 163/5 from their 20 overs, slowed down by Rashid Khan who led the Hyderabad bowling attack with two wickets. The Sunrisers went out to bat and controlled the game, playing at a comfortable pace to win with one ball to spare. Although it looked close, the Sunrisers could have gone at a quicker pace if needed. Alex Hales with 45, Shikhar Dhawan with 33 and Kane Williamson with 32 not out led the team to victory, and although they all played well it was Rashid Khan who took home the man of the match award for his first innings bowling performance.
SRH vs DC 2019
The Delhi Capitals were born in 2019 and this SRH vs DC 2019 fixture was the first time fans saw the new look Delhi team at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Their first visit was a winning one too, a game that showed this franchise has the chance to turn things around and be a force now that they are known as the Capitals.
Delhi went into bat first and put 155/7 on the board after 20 overs. This wasn’t a huge total, despite good knocks from Shreyas Iyer scoring 45 and Colin Munro scoring 40. Khaleel Ahmed led the Delhi bowling attack in this innings, he took three wickets in the game and conceded 30 runs. The Sunrisers came out to bat with a reachable total in front of them but failed to fire when it mattered. Jonny Bairstow scored 41 while David Warner hit his half century scoring 51, but away from those two there was nothing else to come from the Sunrisers. They eventually fell to a poor 116 all out, leaving Delhi to win the game by 39 runs. Kagiso Rabada took four wickets in the game, while Keemo Paul took home the man of the match award after three wickets for just 17 runs.
