The result of the match won’t have much effect on the points table as if Hyderabad wins, they will remain at the bottom of the points table and if Chennai wins, then they will remain at the top of the points table after Delhi failed to win against Kolkata yesterday.

Sharjah is a small ground and it looks like a batting paradise. However, this time the pitches have been slow and thus batsmen are finding it difficult to get big scores here.
- Matches Played: 21
- Matches won by Batting first team: 8
- Matches won by Chasing team: 13
- No Result: 0

They have just won 2 matches out of 10 and hence are placed at the last position in the points table.
