After twelve attempts at reaching the final previously in vain, the Delhi Capitals finally managed to break the jinx as they beat the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs in the qualifier-2. The batsmen had done their job by putting up 189 runs on the board, and Rabada-Stoinis picked up seven wickets between them even as Williamson nearly pulled off a major heist.
Having knocked out Royal Challengers Bangalore with a thoroughly professional effort in the Eliminator on Friday, Sunrisers Hyderabad would go in with the upper hand when they take on Delhi Capitals in the second Qualifier of IPL 2020 at Abu Dhabi on Sunday. SRH have been on a roll, winning five of their last six matches. Delhi, on the other hand, have been having a tough time. They lost four matches in a row, and only a victory against RCB in their last league encounter ensured them qualification for play-offs.
