Delhi Capitals eye their first-ever finals appearance

Talking about Delhi Capitals, they have played some consistent cricket to make their first appearance in the playoffs after 2012. Delhi Capitals shed their tag of ‘underachievers’ to emerge as the best travellers of this season. They won five of their seven matches away and head for the Eliminator with lifted confidence. Both the teams have met once in the Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, where DD had won against the SRH.

Both the sides miss their key players, it is going to be a well-matched encounter: Shreyas Iyer

“We will take confidence from our win against them in Hyderabad. They also beat us in Delhi, so we are expecting a tough match. However, they are also missing some of their players, and we are also without Kagiso. It is going to be a difficult task as well.”
