Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by two wickets and earned a spot in the second qualifier. It is the end of the road for SRH this year. DC won the toss and skipper Shreyas Iyer decided to bowl first. Led by Kane Williamson, SRH managed to put up 162 runs on the board. DC chased it down with two wickets remaining and a ball to spare. Rishabh Pant was awarded the Man of the Match.
Delhi Capitals have slipped to the third spot but none of that matters right now. They need to beat SRH or they're out of the IPL. Opener Shikhar Dhawan is key to their run scoring, while Prithvi Shaw has been playing in fits and starts. Rishabh Pant is proving his worth, but he needs to play responsibly. Shreyas Iyer is the rock in the middle order, while Chris Morris and Colin Munro are the hard hitters. Keemo Paul is an all-rounder who is efficient at wicket taking. Ishant Sharma and Kagiso Rabada are the main pacers. Sandeep Lamichhane is the main turner for DC.
SRH is a very strong batting unit. Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar and Deepak Hooda form the middle order. With Jonny Bairstow back in England, Wriddhiman Saha will be roped in as the wicketkeeper. David Warner is back to Australia so SRH will have to think of a good opening pair. For the bowling department, Khaleel Ahmed, and Shahbaz Nadeem are the usual options. Rashid Khan is the main spinner for SRH and has been quite successful in the IPL.
