Delhi Daredevils have leaped in terms of performance after the mid season captain change from Gambhir to Shreyas Iyer. But as luck would have it, they could not survive against the chart topper SRH and lost their chance at game, even after an amazing 128 off 63 balls by Rishabh Pant.
Royal Challengers might have more at stake than DD, but in a way the fight is to ignore the last position on the points table when the playoffs begin.
With the likes of Kohli, AB de Villiers and Brendon McCullum on one side and RishabhPant, Prithvi Shaw, Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer and Glenn Maxwell expect Delhi to witness some outstanding fireworks.
The real test is about, which bowling side performs better and bring in their team some edge.
