Both Sunrisers and Delhi Capitals are still in contention for a place in the playoffs and a win will keep their hopes alive.

Williamson said they will have to look for positives in their performances so far and execute their plans.

“Our losses have been different, we want to take positives and put on a good performance. We have a lot to play for, we need to keep moving forward and execute our plans,” said Williamson.

SRH made three changes in the playing XI, bringing in Kartik Tyagi, Sean Abbott, and Shreyas Gopal in place of Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar and T Natarajan.
