Toss Moment

The Delhi Capitals, led by their dynamic captain Rishabh Pant, won the toss and opted to field first. This decision proved to be a strategic masterstroke.

“We’ve decided to bowl first. Given it’s an unknown wicket and our batting lineup is strong, we prefer to chase. We anticipate some dew later, which could influence the game.
We’re focused on playing solid cricket, taking it one match at a time. While our death bowling has been a concern, our bowlers are improving with each game. We’re aiming to build momentum. The team remains largely unchanged for this match, with David Warner sitting out and Sumit Kumar returning to the lineup.”

“We would have chosen to bowl first as well, given it looks like a favorable wicket. Interestingly, there was no dew last night, and we’re hoping for the same conditions today.
Despite some losses, we’ve been playing well but just haven’t capitalized on crucial moments. We’re excited about the magnificent stadium atmosphere and the excellent support we expect here. We’re making three changes to our lineup: Saha and Miller are back, and Sandeep Warrier will be making his debut, stepping in for Umesh Yadav.”
