ALSO READ: PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR
With seven wins out of their last eight games, Supergiant have emerged as one of the dominating sides. A favourable result in yesterday's Mumbai Indians-Kings XI Punjab would have given Steve Smith's side a play-off spot, but that didn't happen. So, now, they need to win one of the remaining two matches.

For Delhi, it's again about pride. Zaheer Khan & Co won their last match to prove that they want to sign off in style after having already out of the play-off race.
