Delhi Capitals will surely be looking forward to finish their IPL 2023 campaign on a winning note.

DC vs CSK IPL 2023: Why is Ishant Sharma Not Playing Today’s Match IPL?

After having lost the toss and being asked to bowl first, the Delhi capitals captain David Warner revealed that Ishant Sharma is not included in the DC Playing XI for this DC vs CSK match on Saturday. Warner further mentioned that the senior Indian pacer has a niggle and was not available for selection. Ishant has bowled really well for the Delhi Capitals recently after not getting opportunity during the initial phase of the tournament. The right-arm pacer has picked up as many as 10 wickets from 8 games at a fine economy rate of less than 9. In his absence, the Delhi Capitals have brought back left-arm pacer Chetan Sakariya in the side.

“It’s about consistency, we haven’t settled in home conditions, but today is another chance. The match-ups work – Lalit Yadav comes in, so does Sakariya. Ishant goes out. We will have to start afresh here after that convincing win in Dharamsala,” said Delhi Capitals captain David Warner during the toss.
