DC vs SRH Pitch Report: Arun Jaitley Stadium expected to favour batters with help for seamers

Delhi Capitals return to Delhi after playing their home matches in Vishakhapatnam so far. What can be expected from Arun Jaitley Stadium's pitch?

Delhi Capitals are all set to return to their home ground Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium in New Delhi when they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in an enthralling encounter of the IPL 2024. The Delhi Capitals were playing their home matches at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam so far. However, they will return to their original home on Saturday. Let’s take a look at how the pitch of the Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium is expected to play out in this IPL campaign.

Delhi Capitals are 7th in the IPL standings at the moment, winning three out of the seven matches played so far. However, two of their three victories have come in their last two matches, suggesting an upward curve for the Delhi-based franchise. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad are 4th in the table, and have won 4 out of 6 matches played. They are on a three-match winning run, suggesting a strong contest.

DC vs SRH Pitch Report

After playing two home games at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam, DC return to their home ground of Feroz Shah Kotla. Over the coming weeks, DC’s home games against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Gujarat Titans, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, and Lucknow Super Giants will all take place at the Kotla.

The pitches at the Kotla, which were previously known for producing low and slow wickets, underwent significant renovations before the 2023 ICC ODI World Cup. There have been several high-scoring matches as the wickets have transformed into a batter’s paradise. There were a variety of surfaces used in the WPL matches in March of this year. Some were very beneficial to the batters, while others helped the bowlers.

Teams batting first have largely prevailed in Delhi, but teams chasing have also managed to provide quite a good chase. It will be interesting to see what kind of surface hosts the DC vs SRH tie.
