Delhi Capitals won the toss and decided to Field

“Opting to bowl first since Wankhede allows chasing any target. It’s crucial we stay united as a team despite individual performances. Being back on the field is a joy, and with each match, I feel increasingly at ease.Our bowling has been inconsistent, a challenge in T20s given batter-friendly wickets. But that’s part and parcel of their role.

Rishabh Pant, DC Skipper

“We’d have chosen to bowl too, but batting first on this pitch, used in the last game, isn’t an issue. The surface might not favor the ball coming on later, yet it’s been well-prepared. Securing a win is our immediate goal, confident that it’ll set off a chain of victories. Having 18,000 kids in the stands is extraordinary, making this match special, aiming to send them home with smiles.”
