Team News & Possible Changes

Delhi Daredevils

  • Rishabh Pant joined the squad late on Friday after performing the last rites of his deceased father. He may miss out the opening game after he suffered minor burns on his leg while performing the rituals.
  • Shreyas Iyer is not available for selection because of chicken pox.
  • Delhi could play Carlos Brathwaite in place of Corey Anderson.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

  • There is still no clear news whether AB de Villiers is fit or not. If he is fit, he will come in place of Travis Head.
  • Pawan Negi/Iqbal Abdulla could come in place of Sreenath Aravind


Key Players

  • Chris Morris: He can play a big role as he can hit big in death overs and is a genuine wicket taker. He is my first choice for captain.
  • Sanju Samson: In absence of Shreyas Iyer, de Kock and Duminy, he can play a big role in the DD batting line-up.
  •  Chris Gayle: With short boundaries and flat pitches,  he can play big innings.
