Avesh Khan has turned out to be a great revelation for Delhi’s team who is doing a fine job. Even in the last game, he picked three wickets while conceding at an impressive 3.75. Hence, he is sure to land in DC’s XI against Super Kings.
Anrich Nortje has fierce pace, that is troubling the batters immensely. DC’s bowlers have all the potential to pose threat to the opposition and are expected to keep their good form going.
The South African pacer Kagiso Rabada has been the team’s, go-to man. Nortje and Rabada will be leading the pace attack of the team.
Ashwin, primarily the bowling all-rounder, can be of great significance with the bat on his day. He played a fine cameo of 20 runs in the last game and can do that often apart from bowling well in the UAE.
If there was one man who was shining the best in the last game of Capitals, it was Axar Patel. He added quick nine runs in the end apart from taking three wickets, refusing to leak runs.
Shimron Hetmyer is a good timer of the ball and can change the fortunes of the game with his hard-hitting abilities.
Rishabh Pant played a cameo of 26 runs in the last game but his form has been hot and cold in the UAE so far.
Shreyas Iyer has made his comeback from the injury in style and has looked in good form.It was only Iyer’s 33 in the last game that saved the day for Delhi, apart from bowlers’ brilliance.
Smith will have his chance with Iyer in the middle, who has just been marching upright in the UAE after recovering from his shoulder injury.
However, Shaw is yet to appear at his usual best in the UAE leg of the game.
Ace batter Shikhar Dhawan, who has been flaunting a superb form so far, will stand up in front to open Capitals’ side with Prithvi Shaw.
