  • Delhi Wins Toss & Opts To Bat.

Delhi: Rising Pune Supergiant, who have gone from strength to strength, will look to seal their place in the IPL 2017 playoffs with a win over inconsistent Delhi Daredevils at Feroz Shah Kotla on Friday.

With seven wins out of their last eight games, Rising Pune Supergiant have emerged as the other dominating side alongside table leaders Mumbai Indians. RPS will have also have extra motivation when they step on to the field at Feroz Shah Kotla, having lost their home game against Delhi Daredevils by a huge 97-run margin.

DD can spoil RPS’ party. Delhi Daredevils, who pulled off a dramatic two-wicket win over Gujarat Lions in their last match, will bank on their young guns like Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant. Iyer scored a 96 against GL.
