Sanju Samson speaks

We would have bowled first, dew could come in the second innings. Both pitches have an even covering of grass, but the last match was an afternoon game. All the 10 teams are geared up and prepared well, we just need to follow the process and not think too much, then we will be fine. Same team for us.

Rishabh Pant speaks

We’ll bowl first. The wicket looks fine and we want to use it, there might be some dew in the 2nd innings. Feels good to play 100 matches for the same franchise, but every game is important for me. Most of the concerns are regarding injury, but these are things you can’t control. Two changes for us – Ishant hasn’t recovered, Shai Hope has a back spasm. Anrich Nortje and Mukesh Kumar come in.

Toss Update

Rishabh Pant wins toss, opts to bowl against Rajasthan Royals.

Speedsters meet

The preparations are in full swing

Abhishek Porel speaks

DC found a new hero in Abhishek Porel against Punjab Kings.

Nortje returns, Ishant fit

Anrich Nortje returns for Delhi capitals. After missing the first match, the Protean pacer is all set for a comeback for DC. Ishant Sharma, who suffered an injury in the last game, is also available for selection having recovered.

8/8, can DC break the streak?

So far, all home teams have won their matches, making it 8 out of 8. With Delhi Capitals visiting Rajasthan, can they break the jinx?

Sanju Samson vs Rishabh Pant

There have been debates over who is the better T20 player among Sanju and Rishabh. And now, it returns once again as the two face off. Both keeper-batters are in race for a spot in the T20 World Cup. And both will have to play another crucial knock again.

Sourav Ganguly on leaving out Prithvi Shaw

We decided on Mitchell Marsh and David Warner to open. Ricky Bhui is a middle order batsman. They bat in different positions. It’s not Ricky Bhui for Prithvi Shaw but it’s a different opening combination. They opened for Australia at the top and have done well together, so we decided to open with them.
