Team News
Delhi Daredevils:
Pant hurt his thumb quite badly during the last game against Lions. He still managed to bat in that game but looked quite uncomfortable since the blow. It remains to be seen if Daredevils risk playing him less than 48 hours after the incident. The management might also be tempted to give Ben Hilfenhaus a go.

Rising Pune Supergiant: Adam Zampa was seen having a bowl right at the start of the team's practice session alongside Unadkat but Supergiant are unlikely to tinker with their combination.

What to expect: The temperatures are once again expected to remain warm. With dew playing a role in the second innings in recent games, both teams would ideally love to bowl first.
