The Sunrisers Hyderabad should be considering themselves lucky having made it to the playoffs with only 12 points; the lowest qualification points for a team in the history of IPL. They will now be up against the Delhi Capitals which will be first of the two hurdles to pass on the route to the final. The Delhi franchise was dominant for the most part of the tournament but the big defeat against Chennai Super Kings towards the end allowed the defending champions to gain an edge on NRR and finish at the second place.
