Meanwhile, as the game between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians began, captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided that they will bowl first. Speaking at the toss, he revealed the changes in the playing XI. He said:
“We will bowl first. We batted in the first 2 games, didn’t do well enough. The pitch looks dry and probably take some turn and dew might also be a factor tonight. We got Riley Meredith in place of Stubbs. The other changes is about the impact players. We will see how it goes. When the chips are down you need the senior players to stand up. Jofra is not available.”
DC skipper David Warner also talked about his team composition. Speaking about the changes made to the team heading into the fixture Warner said:
“We would have done the same thing. For me it is about finding rhythm and as a whole group we gotta work harder and get sharper. We got a forced change, Khaleel Ahmed is injured and we got Yash Dhull in place of him. Also Rilee Rossouw makes way for Mustafizur Rahman. All the boys are up and about, we gotta adapt to the situations and pumped to be playing in front of the home ground.”
