Head to Head Stats
Total Matches Played : 15
Delhi have shown great promise in the two games they've played so far. Delhi defeated Punjab in Super Over before outplaying Chennai in the second match. Hyderabad lost to Bangalore and Kolkata and are placed at bottom of the points table.
As far as the momentum and form is concerned, Delhi are expected to be dominant over Hyderabad side. I would probably give 60-40 in favor of Delhi.

A good game of cricket is expected when these two teams compete against each other on Tuesday at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Delhi will look to continue their winning streak while Hyderabad would want to open their account against a team in form.
Hyderabad have few things to improve if they are to overcome the challenge of Delhi Capitals. I feel their fragile middle over is going to give them a headache throughout this season. Guys like Mohammad Nabi and Wriddiman Saha needs to step up and perform better.
David Warner at the top of the order had been brilliant for them in previous season which hasn't been seen in this season. It may be just a matter of time that Warner gets into his groove and start piling runs for his team. Manish Pandey has been doing a decent job at number 3 if not great.
Delhi's batting seems to have adapted to the playing conditions and look pretty good. Prithvi Shaw was superb in previous match against Chennai. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant too have been scoring crucial runs for the team. After Ravichandran Ashwin's injury, Amit Mishra got a chance in playing eleven. Mishra was wicketless against Chennai but he is a quality leg spinner and is expected to be amongst wickets in matches to come.
