Vivo IPL 2016 match prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad looking for their fifth straight win collide with Delhi Daredevils at home
Today is the match between the home side Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Delhi Daredevils which will be played out at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

As IPL 9 heads towards its climax, one is compelled to think how Sunrisers Hyderabad, a team which started the tournament with two straight losses manage to become table-toppers and are now being touted as the favourites to lift the IPL 2016 cup.

Honestly, the success of SRH cannot be attributed to one single player, but credit should be given to the entire team. A strong batting side coupled with a potent pace attack, they have looked the most well balanced team in the tournament.

After Tuesday's win against the Rising Pune Supergiants, Sunrisers Hyderabad are an upbeat side standing atop the points table with 14 points. A win for the Sunrisers on Thursday will almost seal their berth in the Playoffs.

">But as we peep down the IPL 2016 points table, the situations becomes confusing. Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians are placed at the third and fourth places respectively with 12 points each, followed by Delhi Daredevils with 10 points. A win for Delhi Daredevils today will bring them at par with KKR and MI, further heating up the competition.


Besides having lost their last two games, DD need to arrest their down slide which might throw them out of the competition. The most challenging part for the Delhi Daredevils would be tackling the Hyderabad pacers Ashish Nehra, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Mustafizur Rahman. The pace trio having hit a purple patch are making life difficult for the best of batsmen.

Led by skipper Zaheer Khan, Delhi Dardevils are also a good bowling side with able support from Amit Mishra and Chris Morris. The Delhi Daredevils have experimented a lot with different team combinations in this season of IPL and it won't be surprising if Iran Tahir is brought in for today's game.

As regarding the psychological edge, without a second doubt it rests with the Sunrisers Hyderabad who have beaten the Delhi Daredevils on five out of the six occasions both teams have met.

But this is where the twist in the tale is expected today. My prediction is that the Delhi Daredevils are going to win today's match putting a roadblock on the Sunrisers' victory march.
