With Mitchell Marsh sidelined due to an injury, DC could give Jake Fraser-McGurk his much-awaited IPL debut. The right-handed batsman has caught everyone’s attention with his power-hitting and will be looking to make an impact in the IPL as well. Talking about Abishek Porel, he scored 41 against MI while captain Rishabh Pant was out for just 1.

Tristan Stubbs scored a whirlwind 71 not out off just 25 balls and will be looking to extend his fine form. Axar Patel managed to score only 8 runs but picked up two crucial wickets while Lalit Yadav will be looking to make an impact after failing to do so in the last game.

Bowlers: Jhye Richardson, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed

Playing his first game of the season, Jhye Richardson had a poor outing against MI as he conceded 40 runs and did not pick any wicket.
