Team Updates and Key Players Strategy

Delhi Capitals

Ricky Ponting, the head coach of Delhi Capitals, hinted at Prithvi Shaw's potential inclusion during the pre-match media briefing. He also mentioned the possibility of Lalit Yadav joining the team to counter Chennai Super Kings' left-handed batters. Additionally, Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson is back in contention for selection. 

Depending on the match situation, Abishek Porel might start as a specialist batsman if Capitals bat first, with Lalit Yadav taking over as an Impact Player in the second innings, or vice versa if Capitals bowl first.
