Big SELECTION Headache for Rishabh Pant


DC Playing XI vs GT: IPL 2022 Live Updates – Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant will breathe a sigh of relief with Lungi Ngidi and Mustafizur Rahman joining the squad after SA vs BAN ODI series. However, Pant will also have a big headache on who will make his debut? Mustafizur who has been excellent on subcontinent wickets or Lungi Ngidi who has bamboozled batters with his speed. He has a tough choice to make against Gujarat Titans on Saturday. Follow GT vs DC Live Updates on InsideSport.IN.

Having played with just two foreigners in their playing XI against Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, who still don’t have David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Anrich Nortje will pick either of the two in their playing XI.

The Rishabh Pant led team started off the season brilliantly by pulling off a nail-biting chase against Mumbai Indians at Brabourne Stadium last Sunday. But Ngidi and Mustafizur’s availability means Kamlesh Nagarkoti, who was off-colour against MI will go out of the Playing XI.

However, with Khaleel Ahmed returning good figures against MI, it is unlikely that he will be dropped in favour of Chetan Sakariya.

Nagarkoti made his debut for Delhi Capitals in the last game but he bowled just two overs and was very expensive, giving away 29 runs. The 22-year old is expected to make way for Nigidi or Mustafizur Rahman.

The other big question is Chetan Sakariya. DC went all in for a luxurious pace attack with Anrich Nortje, Shardul Thakur, Khaleel Ahmed, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Chetan Sakariya, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman in the squad. With Anrich Nortje continuing to recover from a hip injury, DC will have to use the others.

Khaleel Ahmed likely to retain his pace – Khaleel Ahmed shone brightly with the ball in Delhi’s previous outing. The left-arm pacer took two wickets and conceded 27 runs in his four overs. He is expected to retain his place in the playing XI and Mustafizur is selected ahead of Ngidi, then Delhi can have a good left-arm pace duo with Khaleel in the side.

Delhi Capitals Full Squad: Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw, Anrich Nortje, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Shardul Thakur, Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav, Ashwin Hebbar, Abhishek Sharma, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, KS Bharat, Mandeep Singh, Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya, Lalit Yadav, Ripal Patel, Yash Dhull, Rovman Powell, Pravin Dubey, Lungi Ngidi, Vicky Ostwal, Sarfaraz Khan
