IPL 9: Delhi Daredevils face table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in must-win clash


It’s been quite a season for Delhi Daredevils . After overhauling their squad, under the leadership of two former international stalwarts, they have emerged as one of the strongest sides. They spent some time in the top-four of the points table after a strong start but a string of losses has pushed them down to the bottom half and they now occupy the sixth spot.

Their hopes of making it to the playoffs now depend on how they fare in their remaining two matches. Besides winning both their final two fixtures (vs Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore), they also need to improve their net run-rate in case there is a tie in terms of points. At their new home – Raipur – they first face table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad who need to win either of their final two matches to confirm a top-four spot.
