Delhi Capitals clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad in a virtual semifinal of IPL 2020 in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. The winning team of this match (Qualifier 2) will play defending champions Mumbai Indians in the final in Dubai on November 10. DC and SRH have taken different routes to reach this stage of the tournament. Delhi Capitals went bust against Mumbai Indians in the first qualifier. Having finished No.2 in the league standings handed DC a second chance in the playoffs. Sunrisers Hyderabad eliminated Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday to set up Sunday's contest, the penultimate one in the IPL in UAE this year. Although Sunrisers Hyderabad are peaking at the right moment and have beaten Delhi Capitals twice in IPL 2020 already, Sunday will be a fresh start. Delhi have never won the IPL title while David Warner led SRH to the crown in 2016. Since then, SRH have qualified for the playoffs every year. (FIXTURES AND RESULTS | PREVIEW OF DC vs SRH)

Users simply need to click ‘start video call’ feature under the LIVE match stream and add up to 5 friends in portrait mode with an option of listening to the sports commentary over their conversation and control the volume of each to customize their experience. In case of low connectivity, one can also choose to be part of the conversation using ‘audio only’ option.
