The 18-digit team's 12-digit team will play in the eliminator weird
Delhi's decision to connect Dhawan and Ishant with them
It is quite strange that a team that has finished their league phase with 18 points, has to face the team that has 12 points in the eliminator. But when the Delhi Capitals team will take on the field against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, they have to prove that they are a better team based on the performance of 14 matches. That is why Delhi will emerge as a contender in this match.
Delhi's decision to connect Shikhar Dhawan with him proved to be the best and the same can be said about Ishant Sharma. But the Hyderabad team will also be aware that there are some weak sections of the opposition team, which looks very strong. Earth Shaw and Colin Ingram are not in rhythm. There is lack of continuity in Pant's performance. This season of IPL for Chris Morris has been disappointing and Kagiso Rabada has returned. However, one aspect is also that when Pant is in rhythm, he wins the match for the team. Shreyas has been seen very impressive till now. Trent Bolt seems to be proving to be Rabada's best option yet.
Rashid Khan hopes to return to the rhythm
The Delhi team will also know that the Hyderabad team will not be as strong in the absence of David Warner and Johnny Bayersto. Sunrise chose the players wisely in the auction. Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson will return to the rhythm of the team with great hopes. However, the team needs a better performance from their Indian players in the middle order. At the same time, he will also have to expect that Rashid Khan will again lead the rhythm and lead the team's bowling attack. But the result depends on a few points. Will the Delhi team be able to perform with the same clamor?
