Delhi Capitals (DC) won the toss & opted to bowl first against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). DC astonishingly left out the dashing batter Prithvi Shaw from the playing 11 and even from the impact player substitutes. Prithvi Shaw had scored 47 runs in 6 matches and was seen struggling.
Prithvi Shaw has been dictating the terms in the domestic arena by amassing tons of runs. David Warner stated that Shaw needs to hone his skills which has looked scratchy. DC have included Sarfaraz Khan in the playing 11 who can be the lightning spark for the team.
DC brought in the dynamic batter Philip Salt into the team and it is assumed that he would open the batting with David Warner. DC would be aiming to post a score in excess of 180 as once again the onus will be on David Warner to give the team a rollicking start.
SRH would be aiming for a quick turnaround after a terrible performance against CSK. All eyes would be on Harry Brook, the right-handed batter has looked in fine touch. It would be interesting to see whether Mayank Agrawal opens the batting or bats lower down the order.
IPL 2023 | India National Cricket Team | Chennai Super Kings (CSK) | Delhi Capitals (DC) | Gujarat Titans (GT) | Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) | Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) | Mumbai Indians (MI) | Punjab Kings (PBKS) | Rajasthan Royals (RR) | Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) | SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH)
The contest between David Warner vs SRH’s bowling lineup would be quite fascinating. In the 2022 edition, Warner scored 92 runs in 58 balls as he struck 12 fours and 3 sixes. SRH would be aware of the fact that DC’s middle order is quite fragile.
