He has formed a formidable pairing with South African great Faf du Plessis at the top, while the likes of Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja and Dhoni have helped the team when needed.
In the bowling department too, pacers Josh Hazlewood, Deepak Chahar, Dwayne Bravo and Shardul Thakur are among the wickets while Jadeja and Ali have used their spin wisely. However, apart from Thakur, none of the bowlers could stop the RR batsmen and they would quickly forget their last out before taking on Delhi.
Under Rishabh Pant’s leadership, DC were determined to get the job done after finishing runners-up last year. Like CSK, Delhi also have 18 points from 12 matches with nine wins and three losses.
After losing to Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi bounced back in their last game with a four-wicket win over defending champions Mumbai Indians. However, the Delhi batsmen struggled to advance in the last two matches.
Against KKR, DC lost wickets regularly and could not find the acceleration, with Pant and Shreyas Iyer coming to the rescue in their last game after a top-order collapse in Sharjah’s slow conditions.
However, stroke-making will get better in Dubai and Delhi will need their top-order batsmen, including Shikhar Dhawan, Steve Smith and Prithvi Shaw, as they approach the business end of the tournament.
Delhi have done well so far despite the absence of their fast bowler all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, who is suffering from a hamstring injury.
