2. Delhi Capitals- Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer; Kagiso Rabada
Rishabh Pant is one of the most dangerous batsmen in the league and will obviously be the first-choice pick for DC. The new captain didn’t have a great time in IPL 2020, but his form since then has been excellent and he has cemented his place in the Indian team as well.
Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer will be their other two options, and they may a tough time trying to pick who will be the opener along with Pant. Stoinis might end up edging the West Indian batsman due to the fact that he would provide them with a left-hand and right-hand combination. While Hetmyer didn’t even have a guaranteed place in the team, Shreyas Iyer’s unfortunate injury might give him a place in the XI.
This is because they would have Ajinkya Rahane at three and Steve Smith at four in case they don’t pick Hetmyer, and having two classical anchors in those positions isn’t advisable in this format.
DC have two gun death bowlers in the form of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, but it’s likely to be the former who may take the ball given his previous performances in super overs.
