The Eliminator round of Indian T20 League 2019 will commence at the ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam on 8th May at 7:30 PM IST. Team Delhi will clash with Hyderabad and the winner will play Qualifier 2 with the loser of the Qualifier 1 to reach the finale. While Delhi had a great chance of even qualifying as one of the top two, Hyderabad barely qualified. Here we take a look on at the statistics which can help you to pick your fantasy XI.

Pitch and Conditions:

Historically, ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam has been known for producing belters, where batsmen can play through the line on even-paced wickets. However, in recent times, spinners have made their mark. As the ball doesn’t bounce much, batting second is terrible in this pitch. In recent matches, the teams batting second have even struggled to post odd 80 runs on the board.


Delhi is currently sitting third with 18 points from 14 games. In 11 Indian T20 League seasons before 2019, Delhi finished in the top four of the points table thrice. Though they have topped the table twice in 2009 and 2012, Delhi finished outside the top four in the last six seasons. This season Delhi as a team has given good performance with 9 wins out of 14. Their NRR is 0.044 winning 4 matches out of the last 5.
