Delhi Team Preview: Analysis
Delhi Team Preview: Bowling Preview:
Delhi Capitals would highly depend on their Indian Spin Backup with the likes of Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel and Amit Mishra. They also got Nepali leg-spinner sensation Sandeep Lamichhane. Any 3 spinners out of these four would surely make their place in playing eleven for Delhi.
However, in the pace department, there does not seem any visible replacement for Kagiso Rabada. Anrich Nortje is another Protea pace bowler. But the question arises whether he could replicate the same performance Rabada has given for the Delhi team over the years.
Ishant Sharma and Mohit Sharma are the only experienced Indian fast bowler present in the team. Young pace bowlers Avesh Khan and Harshal Patel are in the team and are expected to get some opportunities in the season.
Delhi Team Preview: Batting Preview:
There is great influx of Indian batsman present in the Delhi Team. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Risabh Panth, Shreyas Iyer, Prithivi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane are present in the team. The top order is expected to give the team blistering start this season. 4 batsman out of given 5 Indian batsman would surely play for the team.
Shimron Hetmyer is expected to finish off the game alongside Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Carey. Likes of Marcus Stoinis and Keemo Paul are also present in the team They would be great backup for the team in case anyone gets injured.
