Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra questioned Delhi Capitals’ (DC) think tank regarding their game plan ahead of the clash against Punjab Kings (PBKS). Notably, the two sides are set to lock horns at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium in Dharamsala on Wednesday, May 17.

For the unversed, Delhi became the first team in the ongoing IPL 2023 to be eliminated from the competition. With just two games to be played in their campaign, cricketer-turned-broadcaster Aakash Chopra was puzzled if Delhi would give a chance to players like Sarfaraz Khan and Yash Dhull. Furthermore, he questioned the think tank if out-of-form Prithvi Shaw would be picked in the setup by resting the ‘big players’.

"The focus will be on Delhi that what will Delhi do? Will Delhi rest their big-big players here and play with Indians? Will Prithvi Shaw get a chance again? Will either Sarfaraz Khan or Yash Dhull get an opportunity?,” Aakash questioned on his YouTube channel.

In his six appearances, Shaw has endured a forgetful campaign, getting a paltry 47 runs at a dismal average of 7.83. The DC opener last featured for the franchise during a match against KKR on April 20, wherein he scored 13 runs before heading back to the dugout.

The former cricketer further added that due to the precarious situation of Delhi, languishing at the bottom of the IPL Points Table, the side can chop and change players. Aakash namedropped the likes of Sarfaraz Khan and Yash Dhull, both of whom have not got too many chances in the ongoing edition.

"Then can you leave out Mitchell Marsh or Rilee Rossouw? If you are not going anywhere, you can play Yash Dhull, you can play Sarfaraz, I mean, you can try whoever you want because Delhi have found themselves in such a situation,” added Aakash.

Placed tenth on the ladder with eight points, David Warner and Co. will aim not to conclude the season with a wooden spoon. Delhi play Punjab in their next outing and will finish their campaign against CSK on Saturday, May 20.
