Anrich Nortje is not playing today’s DC match against Kolkata Knight Riders. He first appeared for the IPL this year in the last match of Delhi Capitals that they playes agaisnt Lucknow Super Giants after regaining fitness. But he did not delivered full quota of bowling. And now he is out of the match against Kolkata Knight Riders.
KKR meanwhile won the toss and as usual chose to bowl first. Shreyas Iyer said, “Shreyas Iyer: We’ll bowl first. When I came in, touched the surface, was pretty hard. It has got even grass. I feel in the second innings it would get even better. The boys have been doing really well, important we maintain the consistency. To captain such an amazing bunch is really good. Same team.”
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant said, “Don’t mind batting first on this wicket. Wicket is absolutely looking very nice. Gets frustrating when you lose close matches but have to learn from your mistakes and keep moving. Definitely a big relief – no dew. One change – Nortje out, Khaleel in.”
