Prithvi Shaw who was hospitalised with typhoid has rejoined the squad. However, he is still recuperating and too weak to rejoin practice. If Delhi Capitals do not qualify for the playoffs, it is unlikely that Shaw will be available in IPL 2022 again.

“Delhi Capitals opener Prithvi Shaw has been discharged from the hospital where he was being treated for a bout of typhoid. Shaw has returned to the team hotel where he is currently recuperating while being monitored by the DC medical team,” DC said in a statement on Sunday.

Meanwhile, KS Bharat has not been impressive in the chances he has got. Understandably, DC have gone with Sarfaraz Khan for this match. Besides that, Khaleel Ahmed returns from injury to replace Chetan Sakariya.

DC Playing XI vs PBKS: Delhi Capitals’ opening conundrum

  • Prithvi Shaw and David Warner made a strong opening pair who devastated opponent bowling attack from both ends.
  • Prithvi Shaw has maintained a strike rate of 159.88 in nine games.
  • Shaw & Warner put up four 50-run stands in 7 matches.
  • In Shaw’s absence, DC’s opening stands read: 0 vs SRH, 16 vs CSK, 0 vs RR
  • Both Mandeep Singh and KS Bharat have failed to impress.
  • Hence, with both Mandeep and Bharat failing, DC have selected Sarfaraz Khan to open the innings alongside David Warner.

Middle-order struggle: It’s not just the opening though, DC lack experience in the middle-order as well. With a pace-heavy side, Delhi Capitals have no potent batter for the middle-order. Rishabh Pant has shown promise but his inconsistency meant that Mitchell Marsh needs to play the primary role to take the innings forward.

Rovmann Powell, although impressive on flat wickets, is not great against spin. As the spinners have begun to dominate games thanks to wickets slowing down after over a month of usage, he could struggle.

Rishabh Pant will have to play a crucial role in the middle order and needs to anchor the innings.

Delhi Capitals (5th, 12 Points): Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals (DC) thrashed Rajasthan Royals by 8 wickets in a must-win match on Wednesday. The win kept them afloat in the Playoff Race. But they will need to win the last two games to make it 16 points and hope RCB and SRH lose their games.

  • DC need to win all two matches to seal playoff berth.
  • DC will also have to improve their NRR which took a hit.
  • A loss and a win won’t cut it for DC.
  • DC will also hope that SRH and RCB lose at least one of their games.
  • DC Remaining matches: PBKS, MI
