They will look to pocket another crucial two points when they face Mumbai Indians (MI) on April 18 at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.
Struggling in the initial stages of the tournament, Delhi Capitals have finally picked the right gear. The bowlers are backing up the hardwork put in by the batters which have had the results coming in. The young side led by Shreyas Iyer will look to keep the momentum going when they face three-time winners Mumbai Indians to consolidate their position in the second spot.
The think tank of Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly are unlikely to make any changes in their playing XI and will expect to deliver the same performance they gave on Sunday.
Date and Venue: April 18 (Thursday) at 8:00 PM IST, Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
Here is the predicted playing XI of Delhi Capitals for match 34 of 2019 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) against Mumbai Indians at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi:
Shikhar Dhawan has shown hints of returning to form ahead of the World Cup. With the premier tournament, only one month to go Dhawan will look to put runs behind his back and enter the tournament with high confidence.
The talented young batsmen played a fine knock of 99 runs but since then has been inconsistent with the bat. The Delhi Capitals franchise have pinned their hopes on Prithvi Shaw to fire and the right-handed batsman needs to live up to the expectation to retain his berth.
Colin Munro impressed in his very first game of the season. The Kiwi cricketer will expect to continue his dazzling form and put runs on the scoreboard for the Delhi Capitals.
Shreyas Iyer has led the team beautifully and brought Delhi Capitals to winning ways after a string of losses at the start. He has also looked in fine touch with the bat chipping in with useful runs and the management will want him to continue.
With the World Cup snubbing, Rishabh Pant will be desperate to prove the selectors wrong doing what he does the best. Delhi Capitals will want their wicket-keeper batsman to fire as the tournament enters its business end.
Chris Morris is finally getting into his groove which will be good news for the Delhi Capitals fans. The Proteas all-rounder returned with good figures with the ball in the last game and will aim to keep up the good work and also contribute with the bat.
The Indian all-rounder has been inconsistent for the Delhi Capitals so far. Axar Patel needs to put his best game forward and make significant contributions in all the departments to help his side keep the winning streak intact.
Keemo Paul delivered a match-winning performance in the last game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The management will hope that the Windies quick provide early breakthroughs against the dangerous looking Mumbai Indians.
Kagiso Rabada has led the pace attack for the Delhi Capitals and has been successful so far. He has a lot of variations up his sleeves and is currently the best in the world. He will look to continue doing his job and help Delhi contain Mumbai Indians within a cheap total.
The veteran leg-spinner is an asset to any team. Amit Mishra is a genuine match-winner and Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer will pin his hopes on Mishra to provide major breakthroughs when the going gets tough.
Ishant Sharma has rediscovered himself in the limited overs cricket playing in this edition of the IPL. The tall and lanky fast bowler will wish to keep up the good work and repay the trust shown by the franchise.
