In what seems to a decision on expected lines, the Delhi Capitals have omitted Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan from the playing 11. The right-hand batter has had an underwhelming season so far despite getting ample chances. Sarfaraz played 4 games this season and scored only 53 runs at a minuscule strike rate of 85.48. He was expected to get axed from the eleven and this decision from Delhi Capitals doesn’t comes as a surprise. Check what Delhi’s skipper David Warner said at the toss,

“We will bat first. Nice wicket looks a bit dry. Want to put runs on the board. We have to come out positive, we got some young talent and hopefully they all will get to showcase it tonight. Unfortunately, Mitch Marsh is sick, so Rilee Rossouw comes in for him. Khaleel has recovered from the niggle and he is back as well.
