TOSS: Delhi Daredevils win toss, elect to bowl first 

Delhi Daredevils Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant, JP Duminy, Pawan Negi, Carlos Brathwaite, Jayant Yadav, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan (c)

Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI: David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Deepak Hooda, Yuvraj Singh, Eoin Morgan, Moses Henriques, Naman Ojha (wk), Karn Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Barinder Sran, Mustafizur Rahman

The Sunrisers, though started with a defeat, got better with every game and gradually climbed the ladder to attain the numero uno position in the points table. While the team has been performing well altogether, it is their skipper, David Warner, who leads them with near perfection skills to utilise the players the best way which brings the superlative out of them. the backbone of middle-order is the match-winner Yuvraj Singh who can finish things off with his strong arms with the bat as well as his bowling skills. Sad news is their veteran bowler Ashish Nehra has been ruled out due to injury and news being around Shikhar Dhawan might also remain out of the tournament due to injury.

The DD team, led by Zaheer Khan, depends on their opening pair Quinton de Kock and Rishabh Pant. JP Duminy has also contributed his bit in the middle to boost the batting line up further. Sanju Samson at the top has also done his bit to support one of the opening pair. DD also have strong bowling line up to demolish any opponent be it Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Zaheer himself and Imran Tahir.
