Overview

The Sunrisers are on top of the table with seven wins from 10 games, something which no one had predicted at the start of the league. David Warner has been in fine form, scoring 469 runs with five 50s but it is the bowling which has impressed. The bowlers led by Mustafizur Rahman defended 137 in their last game against Pune, the lowest first-innings total defended this season. The Hyderabad outfit is looking good and are favourites to not only qualify for the play-offs but also to go all the way and win their second IPL title.

The Delhi Daredevils are suffering a bit of a blip in form after starting the tournament so impressively. They come into this clash on the back of consecutive losses. Despite this setback, they are in the upper half of the table with 10 points from nine games played.

Theirs has been a team effort with a number of players contributing at important times. The key though are the duo of keeper Quinton de Kock and spinner Amit Mishra who are the top run-getter and wicket-taker respectively. When one of them has a good game, Delhi tend to go on and win.
