The race to the IPL playoffs is picking up nicely – and after consulting the live cricket satta rates, we have put together some DC vs SRH betting predictions ahead of the contest, which will go some way to confirming the ambitions for either side.

The Capitals currently lie two points behind the Sunrisers – but boast a better net run rate, which means a victory here would put them ahead of their rivals in the standings with four games left to go.

How much will the Sunrisers’ defeat to the Titans last time out eat away at their confidence? They should have had the game wrapped up on several occasions, but fail to kill off the Titans at your peril – as the Sunrisers found out.

Meanwhile, the DC have won just one from three, and a closely-fought defeat to the Lucknow Super Giants last time out will also give cause for concern to team management.

There are several reasons to be excited about this game – to get the full IPL betting preview, scroll down below. The action gets underway from 7.30 pm (IST) on Thursday 5th May at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

DC vs SRH Betting Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back the Delhi Capitals to win @ 1.83 with Pure Win

This DC vs SRH betting prediction was no easy feat – the Sunrisers have one of the best young fast bowlers on the planet (and the subject of my Hot Bet) and boast an exciting top order underpinned by the mercurial talents of everlasting Kiwi Kane Williamson.

However, the Capitals come into this tie with some serious form behind their premium batsmen. Despite winning just one from their last three, they are averaging 183 per innings in each of those games. What is more, they were chasing in all three – giving you an idea of the sort of high totals they were in pursuit of.

What stands out about the Capitals is the depth to their batting roster. You would have to go all the way down to Kuldeep Yadav at number nine to find a player uncomfortable with the bat in hand, and even he can blast it about a bit. The form of David Warner, the return of Mitchell Marsh, and the abilities of Privthi Shaw mean they boast one of the best top threes in the competition.

Today’s DC vs SRH Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Umran Malik to be Sunrisers’ top bowler @ 3.5 with 10CRIC

I may have gone with the Capitals as part of my DC vs SRH betting tips, but I am reserving my Hot Bet for one of the brightest young talents in world cricket – Umran Malik.

The 22 year-old boasts the tournament’s best figures so far with 5-25 (against the Kolkata Knight Riders, a game they went on to lose, remarkably) and is topping the pace charts too.

The Sunrisers bowling coach and South Africa legend Dale Steyn knows he has a star on his hands, answering in a Twitter Q + A that his inspiration is Umran Malik.

Is he the next fast bowling sensation in world cricket? He will have to be managed carefully – we all know the injuries caused by the pitfalls of pace bowling. If he can steer clear of over-exertion, we may have a speed demon diamond for the next generation.

You can back him to be the top wicket taker with 10CRIC – a leading online Indian betting site that boasts huge odds on the biggest games. Read our 10CRIC review to find out more!

Delhi Recent Form

Not reflective of the way they have been playing. The Delhi Capitals are a frustrating franchise to follow – the talent is there, the performances are there, but the consistency in results is lacking.

They have yet to put back-to-back wins together to garner any sort of momentum – a trick they should learn from their opponents.

The Capitals have been chasing targets in seven of the nine games they have played, winning on just three of those occasions and losing four. However, if you look at the aggregate number of runs they have lost by across those four defeats, it amounts to 51 – that’s 12.75 on average. The fact the Capitals are running a number of their defeats close speaks to a possible mentality defect more than anything else.

I still think they could be one to watch up the home straight – they were my second pick to win the IPL behind the Punjab Kings at the start of the season.

Team News

There are no new injuries to concern the Capitals – no doubt a relief to management who had to deal with Covid-19 enforced absences in Mitchell Marsh and Tim Seifert.

Opening batter Privthi Shaw comes into the tie under a cloud however – the opener was fined 25% of his match fee for breaching the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) Code of Conduct.

Player to Watch: Rovman Powell

One of the best finishers in the game – Powell continues to impress this season. The West Indies international hammered 33 runs from just 16 balls in the victory over the KKR back on 28th April before marmalising 35 runs from 21 balls in the defeat to the Lucknow Super Giants last time out.

It will be interesting to see if skipper Rishabh Pant decides to promote him up the order – especially if he finds his team in a position of comfort.

Too often this season, the Capitals have allowed games to drift – promoting your gunman is the move of a skipper taking affirmative action to take control of the tie.

I will be placing a small punt on Powell to tops score for the Capitals – you can back him at 13.0 with Betway.

DC’s Likely XI

David Warner, Privthi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Andre Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman

SRH Recent Form

They are going through a rocky period. After a run of five wins on the bounce earlier in the campaign, the Sunrisers are now pledging to avoid a third straight defeat.

Both of their previous losses were more about the failure to capitalise on their game position than the other team being better.

A gut wrenching five-wicket defeat to the Titans on 27th April on the last ball of the game was brutal enough, but a narrow 13-run loss to the Super Kings next time would have compounded frustrations.

Team News

The Sunriers remained unchanged from their previous game against the Super Kings, and I can see Williamson sticking with the formula that proved so successful earlier in the campaign.

Player to Watch: Abhishek Sharma

The results may not read well for his side, but Sharma looks to be coming into some dangerous form.

A brisk 39 from 24 balls against the Super Kings followed 65 from 42 balls against the Gujarat Titans. The opener has the perfect foil opposite him in Williamson, and is beginning to bat freely.

I like the look of him to top score for the Sunrisers at 4.75 with Betway – that’s a big price for someone that opens the batting.

Sunrisers; Likely XI

Abishek Sharma, Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, Shashank SIngh, Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T. Natarajan.

Venue & conditions

The recent trend for teams batting first at Brabourne Stadium does not look too pretty – indeed, the last three games here have been won comfortably by the team chasing, with an average first innings score totalling a pitiful 117.66.

That’s not to say it can’t be a run-makers’ paradise either – there have been three first innings scores of 200+ at this venue this campaign, and one score of 199.

It will be fascinating to see what either skipper will opt for, should they win the toss.

DC vs SRH Head-to-Head

The current DC vs SRH head to head record reads marginally in favour of the latter – the Sunrisers have won nine of the 11 games between these two.

However, the Capitals are looking for a fourth straight win over the Sunrisers, after dominating the previous three affairs.
