Delhi and Hyderabad will be looking to win this game and gain two points.
The 11th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Delhi and Hyderabad at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Dubai.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
Hanging around at the bottom of the points table, Hyderabad have not managed to win even a single match of the two they have played in so far. And, their opponents in this match, Delhi have performed exactly opposite. They have won both the matches they have played in, and are placed at the top of the points table at the moment.
So, coming into this match, both the teams would be having completely contrasting motives. While on one hand, Hyderabad would be looking for a big win, bringing them out of the bottom of the points table, Delhi will be wanting to maintain their hold at the top spot in the table, by just managing to get a victory. This makes it a match to watch out for as the two best teams on paper will be pitted against each other.
