The Sunrisers Hyderabad look to retain at top of the table, while Delhi Daredevils will be hoping to regain some momentum and hold on to play-off spot.
Delhi Daredevils, that have got a wealth of talented players – will be looking to get back to winning ways after two straight defeats against Pune and Punjab.
Zaheer Khan’s side face a tough competition as they travel to Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium to face the tournament leaders Sunrisers Hyderabad on May 12.
The hosts are in red-hot form and are currently find themselves at top of the table with fourteen points from ten games (winning 7 and losing only 3), David Warner’s men are level on points with the Gujarat Lions but with a superior net run rate and have played a game less, the Sunrisers are leading at the top.
It would be an easier for the Sunrisers to cement its position at the top by scoring a comfortable win against the Delhi Daredevils.
Sunrisers tipped as one of the favourites to win the Indian Premier League 2016, with sports betting promotions at William Hill are predicting this season to be the most heavily bet on IPL ever.
Sunrisers’s duo David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan are capable to led the team to victory more than once. Kane Williamson, Moises Henriques and Deepak Hooda and Naman Ojha are in the middle of the batting order.
The tourists are currently ranked fourth in the IPL table with 10 points. However, the Daredevils, mentored by Rahul Dravid, need to buckle up and get back to winning ways.
