Losing the toss the Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals captain said he would have wanted to bowl first too. Rishabh Pant explained, “We were looking to bowl first as well, but it Foes matter. There will be a bit on the wicket in the day game. One change for us, Lalit Yadav replaces Marcus Stoinis. It’s good to be nearing a record, but we’re not looking at individual performances, not thinking too much about qualifying.”
This means the Capitals are playing with three overseas players. They had the options available but they probably wanted to go with the set combination. Lalit Yadav,as an all-rounder looks perfect replacement for Stoinis.
On other hand, the Royals skipper Sanju Samson said, “We will bowl first. It’s a day game, it becomes easier to bat second. We have all settled down and moved on to this game, it was a complete team effort by everyone. Evin Lewis and Chris Morris miss out; Tabraiz Shamsi and David Miller are in. They have a balanced side, we are looking forward to an exciting game.”
