DC vs PBKS LIVE: No.3 conundrum for Delhi Capitals – Delhi Capitals were one of the sides majorly affected by the mega auction as they lost a host of superstars to rivals in the February event. The biggest loss of them all was that of former captain Shreyas Iyer, who is now KKR captain has led the two-time champions with grit and is amongst the leading scorers in the tournament. As for Delhi, they have struggled this season, with as many as 4 options tried at Iyer’s No.3 position with no solution in sight. Follow IPL 2022 live updates on Insidesport.in

DC vs PBKS LIVE: No.3 conundrum for Delhi Capitals – Rishabh Pant struggling to fill Shreyas Iyer void as Delhi eye quick fix

While new opening combination of David Warner and Prithvi Shaw has fired, Delhi Capitals have failed to fill the void left by Shreyas Iyer at No.3. Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was shoehorned as the flagbearer for the position, but international commitments, injuries and COVID-19 has meant that the Australian scored a laboured 24-ball 14 in his only appearance.

In his absence, Delhi have tried a variety of options, with Mandeep Singh, Rovman Powell and captain Rishabh Pant himself batting at No.3. Mandeep Singh failed to make a mark scoring a duck and an 18 in his two innings. Powell scored a 10-ball 3 in his only outing, while Pant scored an enterprising 27 in the game against KKR. Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer has gone on from strength to strength, with KKR amongst the top 4 with the ex-Delhi captain scoring two half-centuries in IPL 2022.

Delhi Capitals’ No.3 batsmen this season –

Mandeep Singh- 0 (2), 18 (16)

Rovman Powell – 3(10)

Rishabh Pant – 27 (14)

Mitchell Marsh – 14 (24)

With Mitchell Marsh out with COVID-19 and Tim Seifert also now testing positive, Delhi Capitals are scrambling for options as they attempt to shore their middle order. Mandeep Singh and Rovman Powell could very well earn an opportunity once again. Pant is unlikely to promote himself unless the situation demands so, while youngster Yash Dhull could be fast-tracked in a time of crisis. Sarfaraz Khan is also another option, but DC have preferred him to bat in the middle order than up the order.
