In a big news update, the Delhi Capitals (DC) are not playing their premier opening batsman Prithvi Shaw in their third encounter of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) being played at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Things have gone massively downtown for the Delhi Capitals so far in the ongoing T20 competition as they have conceded two back-to-back defeats in their opening two matches. The Delhi Capitals will definitely want to pick up their first victory of IPL 2023.
RR vs DC: Why is Prithvi Shaw Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, the Delhi Capitals captain David Warner mentioned that opener Prithvi Shaw is not part of the DC Playing XI for this RR vs DC IPL 2023 match on Saturday. However, Shaw is absolutely fit and he is part of the five substitute members out of which one can come in as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. On the other hand, the Delhi Capitals explosive opener has not played really well in the previous two games and thus, he will be looking to provide a brilliant start, if given the opportunity. The Delhi Capitals have brought in the trio of Manish Pandey, Lalit Yadav and Rovman Powell in the side for this important encounter.
“Don’t know what’s gonna happen. Hopefully we will start well. Marsh has gone home to get married. All the best to him. There is one forced change with Powell coming in for Marsh. There are changes. Lalit comes in as well for Sarfraz. Manish Pandey comes in,” said Delhi Capitals captain David Warner during the toss.
