Pitch Report – RR vs DC: “Looks like another great surface, really nice grass coverage on it. There’s plenty of runs on this pitch again,” says Simon Doull. However, he has an advice for the bowlers – “You’ve got to get really straight with the new ball try and not to let those runs go sideways. Limit the boundaries, make the ones and twos tough to get, you’ll come out on top.”
Meanwhile big news is coming in from Delhi Capitals Camp – Shams Mulani joins Delhi Capitals as short-term COVID-19 replacement for Axar Patel; Anirudha Joshi replaces injured Shreyas Iyer.
