It is a big surprise that Shikhar Dhawan is left out of India’s team for the forthcoming T20 World Cup. So far in this IPL, the opening batsman has hit 380 runs at an average of 54.28 in eight matches.
Kane Williamson is a world-beater who understands how to win games for his team. His greatest skill is his ability to remain cool and collected at the crease. He is very consistent. Williamson has 128 runs in 4 innings and he has got out only once so far.
The deceptive leg-spin of Rashid Khan can do the trick for the Sunrisers. He has 10 wickets in seven games at a strike rate of 16.8
DC Playing XI
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (C/WK), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Avesh Khan
RR Playing XI
Wriddhiman Saha (WK), David Warner, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson(C), Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, and Sandeep Sharma
In the last game, the wicket benefited the quicks. In the early innings, they will benefit from the surface, and the boundaries are considerably larger than normal. The previous game between PBKS and RR was a high-scoring one with 180 being made in both innings. However, it is unlikely that the batsmen will be able to repeat that feat.
If DC bats first: 160-170
If SRH bats first: 150-160
