19:00 IST: Here's a look at the top players to watch out for in today's encounter!

Delhi Daredevils skipper Zaheer Khan is all set to miss Tuesday`s Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad due to a hamstring injury. The 38-year-old sustained the hamstring strain during Delhi`s seven-wicket defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens on Friday.

Despite boasting of one of the best bowling attacks in the competition, Daredevils have struggled to put enough runs on board. With no experienced batsman at the top of the order, DD rely too much on youngsters like Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer to do most of the scoring. The hosts will expect Karun Nair to rediscover his form to salvage some pride.

Sunrisers, on the other hand, have been in red hot form and the team will gain a lot of confidence from the fact that Warner is once again having a brilliant tournament. The Aussie left-hander hit a brilliant ton in the previous match and the team will want him to continue his form. Shikhar Dhawan too has been good at the top of the order and the inclusion of Kane Williamson has only made their batting look more dangerous.

In the bowling department, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been successful in the tournament. Basil Thampi and Siddharth Kaul are two bowlers who have eased off a lot of pressure by getting breakthroughs when required.

Here is all you need to know about today's match:


Delhi Dardevils:

Zaheer Khan(c), Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant, Chama Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Marlon Samuels.
