Dubai: It’s approaching the end of the Indian Premier League group stage and every point counts for most teams. Things will be no different in Dubai on Tuesday as the Sunrisers Hyderabad take on the Delhi Capitals, who are all but qualified for the play-offs.
Delhi will be looking at completing some unfinished business and ending the group stage on a high, beginning with Hyderabad.
Delhi succumbed to back-to-back defeats against the Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab in their last encounters. But, with two more points on offer on Tuesday, the Shreyas Iyer-led side will be looking to shrug off those losses and return to the top of the eight-team standings as prime position means an easier path in the play-offs.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers’ hopes of reaching the playoffs are hanging by a thread. David Warner and his men are in seventh place and just above former three-time champions Chennai Super Kings with eight points from 11 matches.
