- Shikhar Dhawan holds the Orange Cap; he has 231 runs from four games
Amit Mishra's 4 for 24 helped Delhi Capitals restrict Mumbai Indians to 137 for 9 on a sluggish track in Chennai and DC will count on the experienced leg spinner to work his magic yet again against the likes of David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson when DC take on SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday. Orange Cap holder Shikhar Dhawan has become the most dependable batsman for DC over the past two seasons and together with Prithvi Shaw forms a formidable opening pair. With bowling not the strongest suit for SRH this season, the opening pair of Dhawan-Shaw can take full advantage of the firsts six overs.
Here are the players who can make a difference for Delhi Capitals
Shikhar Dhawan: With 231 runs from four matches, Dhawan has been the most consistent scorer among all batsmen this season.
A strike rate of 148.07 means the runs have come at a fair clip and DC have benefitted from good starts given by Dhawan and Shaw, making the job easier for a power-packed middle order comprising Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer and Steve Smith.
Amit Mishra: The seasoned leg spinner came into his own in the last match with four wickets. With 164 wickets from 152 IPL matches, he is the second highest wicket-taker in the history of the tournament and he is just 16 wickets behind Lasith Malinga, the highest wicket taker in the IPL.
On slow pitches in Chennai, Amit Mishra's variations can make lives difficult even for the most accomplished batsmen.
Avesh Khan: The surprise factor for DC this season, Avesh has eight wickets from four games and he is still the leading wicket-taker for DC this season.
He retuned 2 for 15 in the last match and has the knack for picking wickets in any situation. The fast bowler could cause problems on a difficult Chennai wicket.
