Delhi Daredevils, who are undergoing the worst performance in the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), are still expected to reach the playoffs. With this hope, the Delhi team will now play against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who is in the top of the points table. Kane Williamson’s team, Hyderabad, has won eight of their last 10 matches and has confirmed their place in the playoffs. The team has 16 points, while Delhi has managed to win only three out of 10 matches. Delhi will have to win all their matches to enter the playoffs. Hyderabad and Delhi have been played 11 matches against each other in IPL till now and Hyderabad has kept the lead winning seven matches in it.
In the last match of the IPL-11 played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad defeated Delhi by seven wickets. In this case, Delhi would like to take revenge for its defeat this time too. Delhi’s open batting is going through with huge ups and downs. However, young batsman Prithvi Shaw is batting well, but despite this team is finding Shreyas Iyer’s feeling some difficult to make good runs. Apart from the Prithvi Shaw, wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant is also batting well and Delhi is hoping that he will score good against Hyderabad.
Sunrisers’ bowling is being handled by very well young Afganistan fast bowler Rashid Khan and Bangladesh’s Shakib Al-Hassan.
