New Delhi, Online Desk. When Delhi Capitals team takes on Lucknow Supergiants at the DY Patil Stadium, the biggest challenge before them will be to give a good start in the powerplay. Head coach Ricky Ponting has also expressed his concern regarding this. Delhi’s team looks stronger than ever in this match because David Warner and Inrik Nokia are going to join this team. While the arrival of Warner will ease the problem of the team’s opening pair, the arrival of Nokia will make the bowling order more effective. In the last match against Gujarat, Delhi had to bear the brunt of poor batting in the last few overs. Rishabh Pant had scored 43 runs in 29 balls in the last match but he failed to get his team to victory.
Delhi’s opening pair- In the matches played so far, Delhi’s problem has been their opening pair, which has not been able to get the team off to a good start. With the arrival of Warner, this problem of Delhi seems to be ending. The team will also expect a big innings from Prithvi Sha.
Delhi team in middle order– In the middle order, Delhi has good options in the form of Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell, Mandeep Singh and Lalit Yadav, but in the last match, the team missed the finisher and in the last few overs, the team lost the match against Gujarat.
Delhi team in bowling– Except for Kuldeep Yadav’s performance in the first match, the team’s bowling does not look very effective, but the arrival of Anrik Nokia will bring aggression in the bowling order. The team has the best pair in spin bowling in the form of Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel.
Probable Playing XI of Delhi Capitals-
David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Yash Dhul, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Lalit Yadav, Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Onrik Nokia, Mustafizur Rahman
