Delhi vs Hyderabad in Indian T20 League

Delhi and Hyderabad are pretty much on the opposite spectrum of the ideology on how to run a team. While Hyderabad has strictly followed the policy of keeping at least 5-6 players of the playing XI intact and building a team around it, Delhi has hardly had the same core of players for two consecutive seasons.  Having played 15 matches between each other, Hyderabad has had a better record with 9 wins. However, Delhi improved significantly in the last season and the fresh signings and trades should only bolster the team further.

Hyderabad has had consistent performers over the last few years with the likes of David Warner, Kane Williamson, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan. However, the team did not perform that well as a unit last year and therefore will have to get their act together right from the start this season. On the contrary, Delhi had one of their best seasons last time around under the young captaincy of Shreyas Iyer and with added experience in the team, one can only expect more from them this season. Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin are all seasoned campaigners and they should bring in the winning mentality in the squad. 

While the Delhi’s home ground is quite small, Hyderabad has a bigger ground, which is why the dynamics of the team lineup shall be different at both grounds. This season, it would quite hard to choose between the two as both teams look quite balanced on paper.
