The Delhi players looked jaded in their last encounter and though Sardara attributed the loss to many frontline players not playing in that game, he would know the loss of momentum at such a crucial stage can prove suicidal.

Rhinos look to upstage wizardsA consistent Ranchi Rhinos would look to continue their dominant run when they face an unpredictable Uttar Pradesh Wizards in the second semi-final on Saturday. Apart from the two matches against Delhi Waveriders, which they lost, the hosts have been dominant in all their home games.
"Home ground and home crowd are our advantages. Players get great energy from the crowd. It's a must win game, and it would be challenging," Rhinos' coach Gregg Clark said.
