However, their set batsman Shikhar Dhawan has got injured because of which the team might have to make changes in its playing XI. Looking at Delhi’s balanced bowling unit, the pacers and spinners have each other back in every game. Their stormy bowler Kagiso Rabada is already the top contender for the Purple Cap holder with 17 as the highest number of wickets in the tournament so far.
