Both the teams have played 10 matches so far, but Daredevils and Sunrisers are place at extreme ends.

The bowling is lethal and can defend any total, as it has shown time and again this season.

Rajasthan Royals won their last match against Kings XI Punjab by 15 runs would want to continue their momentum. The way Pant attacked Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan was marvellous and this innings will surely give Pant confidence and it will reaffirm that he belongs at the worldwide level and despite Delhi's dismal season, Pant has turned a corner and his India recall is not far away.

Electing to bat, Delhi had themselves to blame for a sluggish start which saw them lose the opening duo of Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy in consecutive deliveries before skipper Shreyas Iyer departed off a silly run-out. Rishabh Pant scored 128 runs in 63 balls. He's single handedly taken responsibility of guiding Delhi to a possible playoffs after the most of the other batsmen in the Delhi dugout have disappointed the team. It might even be worth dropping Christian for Junior Dala to add the extra teeth to their attack. Parthiv's form at the top of the order was a plus for RCB from the previous encounter.

Multiple attacks on police stations in Kabul kill seven
The first bomber struck a police station in the western part of Kabul , according to Interior Ministry spokesman Najib ISIS. Danesh said he could only confirm that two people had been hospitalized with injuries resulting from the attacks.

If Rishabh Pant is exhausted of living in Mahendra Singh Dhoni's shadow, the 20-year-old left-hander did a good job of venting any frustration with a blistering century in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday. Maxwell's poor form has already been discussed. He could make the difference for DD in a tight run-chase.

The year 2013 served as a watershed year for the young Punjab pacer as he was able to regain his premium fitness and skill level which ultimately helped him in clinching the second spot on the bowling charts for the Ranji Trophy 2012-13.

Fantasy Picks: The three in-form batsmen for sure. Players like Pant, Iyer, Shaw and Boult have done well consistently for them. So, if Hyderabad manage to beat Delhi in the match 42 of the ongoing edition, they will mathematically seal qualification with as many as three games to spare.

SRH win. They have won their last five games, and DD are the unlikeliest team to break that streak. Let us know in the comments and poll below.
