Delhi Capitals are coming off a tough loss in their previous encounter against Rajasthan Royals and they will be facing the Punjab Kings in their next fixture tonight. Delhi was looking to have to upper hand in their previous game until Morris pulled off stunning innings and showed the match-winning abilities he is capable of.
Delhi will have to rope in Anrich Nortje who is available for the Punjab game and Tom Curran could be the one to miss out after his poor last over in the previous game.
Ajinkya Rahane has had one failure and he will be facing the heat as Steve Smith is waiting on the wings to take the number three position in the team. Here are 3 stars from Delhi Capitals who can be game-changers against Punjab Kings.
3 Stars From Delhi Capitals Who Can Be Game Changers:
Ajinkya Rahane is not having the best of times with the bat in the last few years and is again under scrutiny after missing out on a big opportunity in the last game. He scored a single fifty in the last IPL and it was his lowest scoring season. But he can be a match-winner in tough conditions still and does bring in a lot of experience.
Rahane has some excellent numbers in IPL history and despite his struggles, he still averages more than 30 in the format. His strike rate is a big concern and he has been working hard on it.
His strengths will be timing the ball and he needs to focus on that rather than trying to play rash shots. If the wickets stick a bit, he is well equipped to be the match-winner in the team and he is due in for some runs.
