Delhi Daredevils: The Zaheer Khan-led side surprisingly left out Shahbaz Nadeem for the Kolkata game, but the left-arm spinner should be back into the playing XI. Corey Anderson missed out of the Kolkata match with sickness and should be back into the eleven – at the cost of Angelo Mathews. Karun Nair has struggled for form this season, but the team management has placed immense belief in the Karnataka youngster – who’s threading on thin ice at the moment.

What they said:
“Delhi are a dangerous side and they have got some genuine match-winners. I see them as one team that would be competing against us at the back end of the tournament. Hence, points against them is vital.” – SRH coach Tom Moody is under no illusions of another easy home victory.
