Delhi Capitals have found a wonderful combination in this year’s IPL. That’s why they are in the top two positions. Their batsmen are doing well, bowlers are taking wickets. After an impressive start to the IPL, Prithvi Shaw has not performed in the last few matches. His replacement, Ajinkya Rahane hasn’t performed either. So, it looks now evident that they would go back and stick with Shaw as the opening partner of Shikhar Dhawan.
Ricky Ponting, their coach has somehow made the combination of young and experienced players and the team is nearly in the playoffs. A win against Sunrisers Hyderabad will further boost their chances.
DC Key Players
- Shikhar Dhawan: With back-to-back hundreds and struggling to find an opening partner, Shikhar Dhawan remains to be the key player for DC. His contribution at the top would lay the path for the batsman to come.
- Kagiso Rabada: The highest wicket-taker of the competition is one of the success-factor for Deli Capitals and on Tuesday, Rabada needs to bring his A-game to win the game for Delhi.
- R Ashwin: As pitches are getting slower, spinners ultimately become forces to reckon. With exceptional skills and cunny spin-bowling, watch out for R Ashwin.
