Rishabh Pant will have no reason to play for his team combination unless injury or the current storm of COVID-19 forces him to make a switch against Rajasthan Royals. In the previous game, the spinning trio Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav took three wickets to help win Punjab by 115, before Warner and Shaw closed the chase with over 9 overs to spare.

DC Probable Playing XI vs RR

  • Prithvi Shaw
  • David Warner
  • Sarfaraz Khan
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Rovman Powell
  • Lalit Yadav
  • Shardul Thakur
  • Axar Patel
  • Mustafizur Rahman
  • Khaleel Ahmed
  • Kuldeep Yadav

Longer rope for Rovman Powell

While Mitchell Marsh and Tim Seifert are isolated, it has presented an opportunity for Rovman Powell to get more games under his belt and showcase the great hitting ability that made DC go big on him at auction . The West Indian have been one of the biggest flops of the season and will be keen to turn it around as soon as possible.

Sarfaraz Khan’s latest bet at No. 3

Sarfaraz Khan is the fifth batsman Delhi Capitals have tried this season at No. 3 and the strategy should persist unless the situation calls for a promotion against Rajasthan Royals. The Mumbai star played metered innings as David Warner criticized the Punjab Kings bowlers, and he will be hoping for more chances in the top order after being pushed hard in the lineup.
