DC vs CSK IPL 2023: Why is Mukesh Kumar Not Playing Today’s Match IPL?
The Delhi Capitals have made a tactical move of including left arm pace young sensation Chetan Sakariya for Mukesh Kumar. Mukesh has been in and out of the side throughout this IPL and with Delhi playing their last game, giving a chance to Sakariya isn’t a bad move given the left-arm pacer only played Delhi’s opening game of the season against Lucknow Super Giants. Here’s what David Warner said at the toss,
“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.”
