Delhi Capitals have now lost four games on the trot and all their great work at the start of the tournament is coming undone. The Shreyas Iyer-led side are currently third in the points table but their net run-rate has dropped into negative, which could prove to be critical if other results go against them.
Shreyas Iyer’s team still have their playoff destiny in their own hands as a win in the final game against RCB will see them make it into the final four. But it will be tricky fixture as Virat Kohli’s team might have similar objective depending on the result of their game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
