Foreign vs Desi will compete
This match will be mainly between foreign players vs homegrown players. While Delhi’s Daromdar is mainly focused on Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant and R Ashwin, Hyderabad’s hopes will be set against Johnny Bairstow, Warner, Kane Williamson and Rashid Khan. Williamson may have played one match so far but his arrival has strengthened the middle order.
However, the Hyderabad team looks weak in the bowling department. Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan and Marcus Stoinis are consistently doing well for Delhi, while for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Vijay Shankar and Siddharth Kaul have not been able to do anything special for Hyderabad.
