Kane Williamson is back to leading the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) as the hosts won the toss and elected to field against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday.

Williamson, who was excepted to return after batting in the nets on match eve, made a comeback at the expense of Mohammad Nabi, who will feel unlucky to miss out. SRH made as many as four changes including Williamson. Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey and Siddharth Kaul make way for Abhishek Sharma Ricky Bhui and Khaleel Khaleel.

Delhi Capitals, meanwhile, made a couple of changes as well. Colin Ingram has left the squad to be with his wife, who delivered recently, and in his place, Colin Munro comes in. Amit Mishra replaced Rahul Tewatia.

Here are the playing XIs:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Kane Williamson(c), Vijay Shankar, Ricky Bhui, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Abhishek Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, K Khaleel Ahmed

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Munro, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Keemo Paul, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma

Here’s what both captains had to say at the toss:

Kane Williamson: “We are gonna have a bowl. Usually a good surface. Two string teams and looking forward to a good contest. Initially, it was about recovering. We always enjoy playing here. We have a number of changes. Four of them. I am in for Nabi and three other changes as well.”

Shreyas Iyer: “I am really happy. Boys need to be consistent as well. We just need to believe in our abilities. Whoever gets going has to see it off. Two changes. Ingram has gone off to see his baby and Munro is in. Amit Mishra comes in and Tewatia is out.”
