One more win to make sure they will be playing playoff cricket in IPL 2017 – the Rising Pune Supergiant will be keen to get that W on the board against the Delhi Daredevils when the two sides clash in an Indian Premier League game at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Friday.

With a top four, and a top two, place at stake for RPS, this game is a lot more important for the team from Pune than the home side.

While Delhi Daredevils showed they still have plenty to prove yet in that impressive win over the Gujarat Lions, there is only pride left to play for, for the capital team.

Here is a look at how IPL 2017 Match 52 could go.

If Delhi Daredevils bat first:

Karun Nair falls in the first over to Jaydev Unadkat, but Sanju Samson and Rishabh Pant put on a wonderful partnership, worth 82, which sets the innings up for the Delhi Daredevils.

Shreyas Iyer doesn't have that much of an opportunity to shine this time, but he makes the most of whatever little overs that remain, and with Corey Anderson and Carlos Brathwaite going into six-town as well, DD are able to get to 202.

RPS clearly missed the services of Imran Tahir in the middle overs, but they know this is a chaseable score.

Ajinkya Rahane and Rahul Tripathi begin well, scoring 56 runs in the Powerplay, with the only wicket to fall being that of Rahane, who falls in the sixth over of the innings, to Pat Cummins.

Tripathi is strong at the other end, though, and after taking a few deliveries, so is the captain Steve Smith. A 64-run partnership from the two keeps RPS in the chase, and when Tripathi falls, it is time for some big-hitting from Ben Stokes.

The left-hander obliges with another peach of an innings, with MS Dhoni coming in towards the end and scoring a quickfire 24 to help RPS to that big target.

If Rising Pune Supergiant bat first:

Tripathi and Rahane make 34 quick runs together, before the former falls to Zaheer Khan. Another 45 runs is added by Rahane and Smith, with the second RPS opener then falling, to Amit Mishra.

Manoj Tiwary comes in at No.4, scores a six-ball 15 and falls, leaving Smith, Stokes and Dhoni to get RPS to a defendable total.

They do reasonably well, with Smith's unbeaten half-century giving RPS a total of 184.

Karun is a second over victim to the spinner Washington Sundar, but Samson and Pant again ally for big runs. With the pace of the partnership pretty good as well, DD are able to stay with the required run rate.

Both the set batsmen, though, fall in one over, leaving DD in a spot of bother.

With Iyer unable to replicate his brilliant innings from the last game, and Anderson and Marlon Samuels also falling without troubling the scorers enough, Brathwaite, despite an innings with a strike rate of over 200, is left with too much to do as RPS qualify for the playoffs.
