S Dhawan | S Iyer | A Rahane | L Livingstone | P Shaw
Shikhar Dhawan is in good form at home recently. He has two consecutive half-centuries in the last two matches in Delhi. The batsman has the ability and form to make it 3 in 3. Much like Dhawan, another player in the form at home is the captain Shreyas Iyer. Iyer, also, has 2 consecutive half-centuries at Kotla in the last two matches. He even remained unbeaten in his first half-century against Kings XI Punjab. Rahane seems to enjoy playing in Delhi in the IPL. The batman has scored 457 runs in his 10 innings at Kotla with a batting average of 65.28. He has 5 half centuries in 10 innings to make it a half-century in every second game. What’s more, Rahane scored an unbeaten century against Delhi in Jaipur recently. L Livingstone has looked good since coming in the team and he can score some crucial runs for his team in the top order.
| Axar Patel | R Parag
Axar Patel is a capable all-rounder for Delhi who will need to contribute across different departments. He has done that in patches R Parag has been in good nick recently and the young cricketer has been a find for Rajasthan Royals.
S Gopal | O Thomas | A Mishra
Shreyas Gopal has found himself among wickets in the last few matches. The bowler has now picked up 10 wickets in his last 5 matches for Rajasthan Royals. Oshane Thomas could prove costly sometimes, but he does deliver wickets at crucial times. Amit Mishra will be expected to make use of a pitch that favours spin bowling and get some wickets for Delhi Capitals.
Captain – Any of Shikhar Dhawan or Shreyas Iyer would be a good choice for the captain as they are enjoying a purple patch in Delhi.
Vice Captain – Rishabh Pant or A Rahane could be a good vice-captain after their heroics in the last match between these two teams.
