Rajasthan Royals Team News
English seamer Jofra Archer is still suffering from a side strain and is expected to miss out the action against Delhi. Dhawan Kulkarni and Jaydev Unadkat shared the new ball fairly well with Ben Laughlin firing the thunderbolts later on. Even though the duo is likely to open the balling, Laughlin will be in contention to claim the opening spell.
It was a rather unfortunate debut for the Australian opener Darcy Short who got run-out in the very first over. Also, Ben Stokes couldn’t do much to rescue the team with either of the two roles. Rahane wouldn’t like to tinker the combination much after a solitary game.
Playing XI (Last Match): Ajinkya Rahane (capt.), D’Arcy Short, Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Laughlin, K Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat
Delhi Daredevils Team News
Glenn Maxwell is back with the franchise after having missed the opener on the account of teammate Finch’s marriage. The dangerous batsman is highly likely to replace all-rounder Daniel Christian in the playing XI.
