The Delhi batting has delivered however not devastated, with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant developing with some first rate knocks and Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan and Marcus Stoinis chipping in.
The bowling has verged on the sensational, with Kagiso Rabada main the present, with nice assist from South African compatriot Anrich Nortje within the tempo division and the veteran Amit Mishra and Axar Patel developing good with the spin, particularly after Ravichandran Ashwin injured himself within the opening match.
SRH had Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey with one thing to supply with the bat, however your complete bundle, together with bowling aces Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan, trying a bit of beneath.
It remains to be early days, so one hopes SRH enhance on all fronts. But as issues stand, the momentum positively appears to be with Delhi Capitals.
Nothing adjustments fortunes in cricket like a win, and SunRisers Hyderabad will certainly be gunning for factors in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday. But they may have their process lower out and upbeat Delhi.
