Following the collapse in Mohali, Delhi Capitals can consider making a couple of changes to their playing XI for a showdown against rampant Sunrisers Hyderabad at Ferozshah Kotla on Thursday.
Avesh Khan had an ordinary outing in the last game. The pacer is expected to make way for leggie Amit Mishra. There is also a chance of Harshal Patel getting replaced with Axar Patel.
Meanwhile, Sunrisers’ David Warner was off the field after he bruised his finger while taking Virat Kohli’s catch in the last game. However, SRH coach Tom Moody has confirmed that the Australian is fit to feature.
If SRH are to make a change, it will be Kane Williamson returning to lead the Men in Orange in place of Mohammad Nabi.
Delhi Capitals – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Colin Ingram, Hanuma Vihari, Chris Morris, Harshal Patel/Axar Patel, Sandeep Lamichhane, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra/Avesh Khan
Sunrisers Hyderabad – David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Kane Williamson/Deepak Hooda, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem/Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
