IPL 2017: Team Hyderabad eyes fourth consecutive win against Delhi Daredevils at home
The Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to take forward their three-match winning run at home when they face mighty-spirited Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL) contest on Wednesday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.

Team Hyderabad's all three wins have come at this particular venue, their last win being in the match on Tuesday, where they beat Kings XI Punjab by 5 runs. However, they have lost both of their away matches played so far. This suggests that they really thrive in home conditions.

Given the home advantage, SRH's absolute might at home will come under serious challenge against team Delhi, who defeated the Kings XI Punjab by more than fifty runs before losing to KKRby four wickets in a match that lasted till the last over.

Studded with the young batsmen like Sanju Samson, Sam Billings, Shreyas Iyer, and Karun Nair, Zaheer Khan-led Delhi's strength lies in their variety of talented seam-bowling all-rounders. Players like Corey Anderson, Chris Morris, Pat Cummins and Angelo Mathews provide the depth and balance to their side. But this exciting team many a times faces an absence of a pivotal bastman around whom the team can bat.

Skipper Zaheer Khan has shown that despite his international retirement, he still remains one of the best exponents of pace bowling. Giving him support in the bowling attack will be Mohammed Shami and the veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra.

Not only team Delhi's bowling but also their batting is going to face tough challenges against the defending champions Hyderabad, who supposedly have one of the most balanced teams in the tournament.

In Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ashish Nehra, team Hyderabad has two of India's best shortest format medium pace bowlers. B Kumar's capability to mix his seam balls with yorkers at both the start and at the death overs has been of paramount importance in his T20 cricket career. He is currently the highest wicket-taker with 15 to his cap. Meanwhile, team Hyderabad's newly acquired Afghan spin pair of Mohammed Nabi and Rashid Khan has been quiet impressive as well.

In today's match SRH looks as a slightly better team.
