This will be the first encounter between both the sides in the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

Delhi Capitals (DC) Overview:

With six victories in 13 matches, DC are now under pressure to secure a decisive victory in their upcoming game to maintain their slim hopes of qualifying for the playoffs. Under the leadership of Rishabh Pant, DC has managed to secure three wins in their last five matches. However, their recent defeat against RCB, where Axar Patel led the side in the absence of Pant, highlighted the challenges they face in maintaining consistency.

David Warner
Jake Fraser-McGurk
Abhishek Porel
Tristan Stubbs

Sumit Kumar
Abhishek Porel
Axar Patel

A Closure Look:

In the DC lineup, Warner assumes the role of providing stability and seasoned experience at the top of the batting order. Supported by the batting prowess of Fraser-McGurk and Porel and bolstered by Stubbs in the middle order, the team’s batting lineup appears robust. Behind the stumps, Pant takes charge of the wicketkeeping duties, ensuring reliability and solidity.

Turning to the bowling department, DC boasts spin options with the likes of Axar and Kuldeep, who employ their variations skilfully to trouble opposing batters.
