The 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has entered its final stages as in next 10 days or so the league stages will be finished and the much-awaited playoffs will be commenced. However, the next match of the league stages will be played between the two teams which had a pretty contrasting journey so far in the ongoing season of IPL, Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Delhi. The game will be a do-or-die one for the hosts as they are virtually out of the contention for playoffs, whereas a win here for SRH will make them the first entrant into the IPL 2018 playoffs. In the last game between them in Hyderabad, the hosts crushed the visitors domination. Despite the fact that both the teams have had a contrasting journey so far in IPL 2018, DD and SRH do have a bunch of proven match winners in the respective squads. Let us have a look at the Players to watch out for fantasy sites for DD vs SRH.
1) Prithvi Shaw
In the last games against SRH, Prithvi Shaw walked in with a new opening partner Glen Maxwell. Maxwell’s dismissal in the second over had no effect whatsoever on Shaw. He played his natural attacking game and ended up scoring his second IPL half-century, 65 (36), with the help of six fours and three sixes. In the season so far, he has scored 205 runs with an average of 41 and a strike rate of 170+.
2) Shreyas Iyer
The most shocking announcement of the IPL so far came from the camp of Delhi Daredevils. It’s loved home boy Gautam Gambhir stepped down from the position of Captain in the aftermath of the consistent poor team performances. DD installed Shreyas Iyer as their new captain and he started excellently with a match-winning innings against KKR. Iyer was in a murderous mood against KKR the other night and smacked 29 runs in the last over of Shivam Mavi. Iyer’s highest score 93* came in just 40 balls. So far in the season, he has scored 351 runs with an average of 50 and a strike rate of 150. SRH will have to stop this maverick.

3) Rashid Khan
Afghani leg-spinner Rashid Khan started off the IPL in a quiet fashion. In the last games against DD, from picking up wickets of two crucial batsmen to bowling at a spectacular economy rate, Rashid Khan delivered another game-changing performance tonight. Adjourned as the ‘Man of the Match’, his bowling figures of 4-0-23-2 saw him dismissing Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant.
4) Kane Williamson
The last game against CSK was another of those matches where Kane Williamson bailed-out his team out of danger. Coming in to bat at No. 3 in the third over, Williamson batted in his natural self, scoring an impressive 56 (39) with the help of five fours and two sixes. In the season so far, he has scored 410 runs with an average of 51 and a strike rate of 130+.
