Here is our review between Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals , In First Innings SRH Batsman started their with innings slowly by reading the bowlers and pitch behaviour, Once the powerplay came to end David warner took charge of Delhi Capitals bowlers. On the other side , Bairstow was rotating strike ,while choosing the reverse sweep Warner gave his wicket to Amit Mishra at a crucial point of time by scoring 45 Runs in 33 Balls.
