Toss Sunrisers Hyderabad opt to bowl v Delhi Capitals

Kane Williamson returned from injury to lead a revamped Sunrisers Hyderabad side against Delhi Capitals at the Rajiv Gandhi international stadium. He won the toss and opted to bowl on a grassy Hyderabad pitch.

All up, Sunrisers, who had suffered back-to-back defeats, rung in four changes. Williamson replaced Mohammad Nabi while the left-arm spin-bowling allrounder Abhishek Sharma, local batsman Ricky Bhui and left-arm quick Khaleel Ahmed all came into the side. This meant Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey and Siddarth Kaul were left out.

Meanwhile, Capitals made two changes, including an enforced one. Colin Munro got his first game of the season, replacing Colin Ingram, who has returned to South Africa on paternity leave. Legspinner Amit Mishra came in for Rahul Tewatia in a like-for-like swap.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1 David Warner, 2 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Vijay Shankar, 5 Ricky Bhui 6 Deepak Hooda, 7 Abhishek Sharma, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Khaleel Ahmed, 11 Sandeep Sharma

Delhi Capitals: 1 Prithvi Shaw, 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Shreyas Iyer (capt), 4 Rishabh Pant (wk), 5 Colin Munro, 6 Chris Morris, 7 Axar Patel, 8 Keemo Paul, 9 Amit Mishra, 10 Kagiso Rabada, 11 Ishant Sharma
