Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match
David Warner could not have the impact he has had in the tournament in the previous game but he will be keen to make up for it in the upcoming fixture. The left-hander has been giving Delhi Capitals the starts at the top order alongside Prithvi Shaw and the duo has proved to be destructive in the powerplay. Warner has accumulated 264 runs in seven games already this season and he is expected to add some more to his tally.
Probable best bowler of the Match
Kuldeep Yadav has been the trump card for Delhi this season and he has continuously managed to be a game-changer in crunch times. The left-arm spinner is second on the list of the top wicket-takers this season with 17 wickets in nine games and he has been bowling some beautiful lengths and lines. He is expected to make up for not taking wickets in the previous game.
