Delhi Capitals Team Preview:

They are the runner-ups of last season. They have won 4 and lost 1 match till now. They have received a major setback as their star spinner R Ashwin is not available for selection. Lalit Yadav is expected to replace him in the playing11. They can even give a chance to Umesh Yadav/Ishant Sharma for increasing 1 pacer.

Probable11 of the DC:

  • Shikhar Dhawan: LHB
  • Prithvi Shaw: RHB
  • Steve Smith: RHB
  • Rishabh Pant: LHB
  • Marcus Stoinis: RHB+RAM
  • S Hetmyer: LHB//A Nortje
  • Lalit Yadav: RHB+RAO // Ishant Sharma
  • Axar Patel: LAO+ LHB
  • Amit Mishra: RAL
  • K Rabada: RAF
  • Avesh Khan: RAM

Expected Death overs: K Rabada and Avesh Khan

If A Nortje plays then most probably Lalit Yadav will play in place of R Ashwin otherwise one pace bowler will be preferred as replacement.
