New captain, new fortunes for Delhi Daredevils? With Gautam Gambhir having stepped down from captaincy, Daredevils just may turn the season around with a fearless approach to its challenges. The side, led by Shreyas Iyer, plays a side that has enjoyed a good run this season — Sunrisers Hyderabad. Sunrisers, led by Kane Williamson, is known to defend low totals with its potent spin attack; its batting, led by Williamson, is in good hands, too.
