This exciting encounter where both the teams have a lot to play for will surely be a mouthwatering prospect for its fans. For Steven Smith-led Rising Pune Supergiant they would be looking to replace Gautam Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders and finish in the top-two. Delhi Daredevils stands in their way, a team that has certainly peaked at the right time, sans their big international stars. With a depleted unit, one has to say that they have punched above their weight. Players like Rahul Tripathi and Ben Stokes have come to the party but Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not lived upto his standards and that is an area they would like to rectify ahead of the crucial playoffs.
RPS lead 2-1, with both their wins coming last season. In their first exchange this season, Delhi Daredevils were powered by a maiden T20 hundred from Sanju Samson and a blistering unbeaten 38, off just nine balls, from Chris Morris that helped them win by 97 runs after scoring 205. It was a high-scoring encounter and hence DD will feel confident ahead of this game.
