Determined Delhi faces desperate Hyderabad

Following contrasting runs in the Indian leg this edition, Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) face-off eying a common goal of resuming their Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign with a victory in Dubai today.

If the numbers from the previous editions are pointers to the future, then teams target 16 points to reach the playoffs in an eight-team field.

Going by that indicator, DC is just two wins away from playoffs while SRH needs seven victories in as many matches to make the grade.

With the teams returning after more than four and a half months, players will have to find their form.

Last time the teams met, DC won in Super Over. Since then, SRH lost two more matches even as Kane Williamson replaced David Warner as Skipper, three days before the IPL was postponed in May.

DC, with quality players in all departments, will start as the favourite. The return of Shreyas Iyer lends further solidity to the side that is looking to do one better than its runner-up finish in Dubai last year. (Agencies)
