DC Playing XI vs CSK: Doubts persist on Stoinis, Will Lalit Yadav to return to the team?

DC vs CSK- Qualifier 1: Delhi Capitals are likely to stick with most of their team when they face off against CSK on Sunday. Last year’s finalists have a set top four with Shreyas Iyer’s return, while Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw continue to reign supreme at the top.  Shimron Hetmyer has chipped in with valuable contributions lower down the order, while Capitals would hope to have Marcus Stoinis back into the team. If the Australian isn’t fit, Rishabh Pant could opt to bring back Lalit Yadav into the fold in place on Ripal Patel. 

There could be a case to continue with the Gujarat all-rounder, but it is unlikely that Delhi opt for the course. Steve Smith has also previously played in that role, but the Capitals would want the option of a sixth bowler, which only Ripal Patel or Lalit Yadav provide in the squad.

  • Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are settled opening pair at the top of the order.
  • Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and SHimron Hetmyer make up the middle order, and all have been amongst the runs in recent times. 
  • Marcus Stoinis has missed the last few games due to injury and remains a doubt for the IPL 2021 playoffs. 
  • Should the Australian miss, Delhi could opt to bring in Lalit Yadav, having given an opportunity to Ripal Patel last time out.

DC Playing XI vs CSK: Doubts persist on Stoinis, Will Lalit Yadav to return to the team?

DC vs CSK  – Qualifier 1: Openers – Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan have been one of the most successful opening partnerships in the IPL 2021, and while Shaw’s returns have diminished in Phase 2, Dhawan has continued to go strong and is in contention for the Orange Cap.  The Capitals would hope that the duo can get them off toa good start in Dubai on Sunday. 

Middle-order: Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant complement each other well at No.3 and No.4, and have more often than not delivered for the side. Shimron Hetmyer has performed in the finisher’s role ably, with Axar Patel and either of Marcus Stoinis or Lalit Yadav could provide much more support to the left-handed West Indian.

Pacers: South African duo Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada have continued from where they left off last season, but it is the rise of Avesh Khan that has truly helped Delhi Capitals this season. Khan is in contention for the purple cap with Harshal Patel and the trio form a potent attack, with the ability to pick regular wickets at any stage of the game

DC vs CSK Qualifier 1 – Spinners: Ravichandran Ashwin will be the leader of the pack as he goes up against former team CSK. Ashwin will be complemented by Axar Patel, who has been in sublime form in Phase 2. The duo will look to stifle the CSK batting order and get as many wickets as they can, with the IPL proving to  be match practice for the T20  World Cup.
