Via IPLT20


The first eliminator – Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) – is the first match to be played at Visakhapatnam this year and it will decide which team will take on Chennai Super Kings for a place in the final. Delhi has been a consistent performer this year, however, the same cannot be said about Hyderabad as they have had their ups and downs this season. Having said that, it’s all in the past and what matters is today’s match for the two teams. A loss for Iyer’s men will undo all the hard work, while a win for Williamson XI can change everything.

Team News

Delhi Capitals rue the absence of their premier pacer Kagiso Rabada who has been called back by Cricket South Africa following complains of back pain.

The previous meeting’s heroes for SRH, Jonny Bairstow and David Warner are no longer available and they have to turn to the likes of Wriddhiman Saha and Martin Guptill. The replacements have fared well until now and their contributions will be crucial for Willaimson’s men tonight.
