PREVIEW: Delhi scored an upset over Jaipur Pink Panthers on Tuesday, that will give them enough confidence to score another win. Meraj Shekyh had a decent outing, and showed why he is one of the best in the business. Another Irani, Abofazl has been struggling for form though. Sriram is one raider on whom Delhi can pin their hopes to perform.
Bengaluru, meanwhile, will also head into the contest on the back of a win and will be looking for a strong finish to the season. Skipper Rohit Kumar has been a standout performer for them throughout and can be expected to lead from the front once again.
