While Iyer showed good form in all four matches of the team, Kohli returned to form by scoring a half-century against Rajasthan Royals. Now these two captains will like to lead on Monday and will leave no stone unturned to leave each other behind. In such a situation, this match is expected to be exciting.
Delhi team captain Shreyas Iyer showed his talent again on Saturday and scored 88 runs from 38 balls. Apart from him, Prithvi Shaw scored an innings of 66 runs, which Delhi beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 18 runs.
Prithvi Sauv is in good form in Delhi’s top order but Shikhar Dhawan’s form will be a matter of concern for Iyer. The good thing for Delhi is that Rishabh Pant has shown a glimpse of his aggression by scoring 38 runs off 17 balls against KKR. Not only this, aggressive batsmen like Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer are also in his team.
Kagiso Rabada has handled the bowling of Delhi well, although he could not run against KKR. South African fast bowler Enrich Nortje has played a great role for Delhi in the opening and death overs. He bowled tight in the 19th over against KKR. Harshal Patel, who replaced Ishant Sharma, also took 2 wickets for 34 runs in four overs but Ravichandran Ashwin and Stoinis, who returned to the team after being fit, could not leave the impact.
Delhi Capitals probable playing XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Akshar Patel, Harshal Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Enrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada
The entire team of Delhi Capitals: Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Sauv, Shimron Hetmyer, Kagiso Rabada, Ajinkya Rahane, Amit Mishra, Rishabh Pant, Ishant Sharma, Akshar Patel, Sandeep Lamichhane, Chemo Paul, Daniel Symes, Mohit Sharma, Enrique Narje , Alex Carey, Avesh Khan, Tusshar Deshpande, Harshal Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Lalit Yadav.
Virat Kohli returned to form by scoring an unbeaten 72 off 53 balls in RCB’s easy win of 8 wickets against Rajasthan. On behalf of RCB, young Devdutt Padikkal has done well in the top. He has so far scored 174 runs in 4 matches with the help of 3 half-centuries. If Aaron Finch also manages to play a big innings, then it will not be easy to stop RCB’s opening pair. RCB would have been relieved by Kohli’s return to form. This will reduce the pressure on AB de Villiers and Shivam Dubey and Gurkeerat Singh running in excellent form.
Isuru Udana has impressed after joining RCB’s bowling department with Navdeep Saini and both spinners Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal playing a good role. Adam Jampa of Australia, however, has not been able to adjust to the circumstances so far. RCB would also be expecting Chris Morris to be fit soon. The South African all-rounder is suffering from a hamstring strain before the tournament begins.
