Chris Woakes and Jason Roy, two high-profile players acquired by the Delhi Capitals at the last auction, have pulled out of the season recently. Among new acquisitions, West Indies’ Shimron Hetmyer and Australia’s Marcus Stoinis can expected to be slotted in into the middle order. Ajinkya Rahane will be turning out for them for the first time, and he will probably drop down the order while Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan continue to open. The bowling department looks relatively thin on paper. Trent Boult and Chris Morris have been released by the franchise, leaving Kagiso Rabada as the sole pace spearhead in the team.
Predicted XI – Shaw, Dhawan, Iyer, Hetmyer, Pant, Stoinis, Axar, Keemo, Ashwin, Rabada, Mishra
