The coin fell in favor of the Delhi Capitals, who opted to put SRH in to bat first, setting the stage for a high-scoring game.

“We’re going to bowl first. The wicket looks pretty good, and we prefer chasing because we’re more of a batting unit with more batters. Dew might be a factor later on. The only thing we’ve emphasized is to “stay in the contest”.
While the opposition has been playing well, we can’t afford to let them dominate. Regardless of the ground, we need to focus on playing good cricket. Lalit replaces Sumit, and Nortje comes in for Ishant, who had a back spasm just 5 minutes back.”

Pat Cummins, SRH Skipper: “We were also considering bowling first, as the wicket looks good. Given the way our boys have been batting, we expect the opposition to come hard at us.
We’re sticking with the same batting lineup and will assess the bowling options later on.”

Personally, I’ve just been trying to stay relaxed and focus on hitting the ball. Keeping things simple and reacting to each delivery has been key for me. I’m delighted to be maintaining my form.

Our team has a lot of depth, and everyone can contribute with both bat and ball. It’s a luxury to have so many options, and that’s what allows us to post such high scores.
