Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team better and help them win big.
Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: A hot evening in Delhi with the temperature hovering just above 35° and no showers are expected.
Pitch Condition: The pitch of Kotla have been batting friendly in this season. In the five matches played here, the average first innings score is 192 with four 185+ scores.
Delhi has a 3:2 win-loss ratio on their home ground this season.
Both teams had a contrasting season. One will be playing for Dignity and the other will be playing to secure a place in the top two. Both teams have been affected by the South African team training camp as some of their key players have left the team.
- Unavailable players – Sam Billings, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada and Angelo Matthews.
- Having already knocked out, they might give Ben Hilfenhaus a game in place of Marlon Samuels or Pat Cummins.
- Rishabh Pant injured his finger badly in the last match. So, if he is not fully fit, DD may go with Ankit Bawne or Aditya Tare and Samson will keep the wickets.
- Also, Dhoni’s struggle against spin might tempt DD management to give chance to Shahbaz Nadeem in place of Mohammad Shami.
- Rest of the squad is expected to remain the same that fielded in the last match.
Rising Pune Supergiant:
- Unavailable players – Imran Tahir and Faf du Plessis (left for the training camp ahead of Champions Trophy).
- Unavailability of Imran Tahir will force a change and Adam Zampa is most likely to come in for him.
- Rest of the squad is expected to remain the same.
