Khaleel Ahmed’s first game went well for him as he managed to pick two big wickets, that of Tilak Varma and Tim David. He can maintain his economy and bowl at a good pace for the team.
Muztafizur Rahman is available to be picked for the upcoming game as he has joined the Delhi Camp, and has high chances of being a part of the playing XI
Kuldeep Yadav marked his comeback into the IPL after being rested for the whole of 2021 with KKR. He picked up three wickets in the game which included two big names- Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard. He stood up to the chance given to him and proved his worth.
Shardul Thakur will have to prove to not just his team, but to others as well that the money spent on him has a worth. His performance under pressure flickers, but he can surely be the one to break any budding partnership in the opposition’s game.
Axar Patel was retained by DC before the mega auction, and after his innings in the previous game, their decision stands correct. He can bowl for all four overs and can bat down the order for a long time.
Be it their innings with the bat, or the ball- these three players can nail it. Lalit Yadav was the major reason behind DC’s victory in their first game. His brilliant knock of 48*(38) helped DC chase down the score in the 19th over of the game.
Rovman Powell will be the power-hitter for DC. It is one skill that all the Caribbean players hold. They’re the finishers of the game and known for taking the game a long way, and Powell will carry on the legacy being with DC.
Rishabh Pant will handle and manage the middle order and anchor the innings. He couldn’t do it in the previous game, but he’s one of the dependable players.
While DC get all their overseas players back, they’ll have to work it out with what they have in hand. We’ve witnessed Bharat’s game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2021 edition, and thus his skills to play the ball at the No. 3 spot will help DC.
Though Seifert had a downfall in the previous game, it was just his first game. The four boundaries that he hit during his innings showed the power and aggression he had in the game. The opening duo can lead the batting line-up from the front and their power-hitting skills will come in handy.
The duo will continue to open for their team, just like they did in the first game. Shaw tried his best to stand there for his team when the other members of the top order failed, but he couldn’t succeed in accomplishing his plans.
