Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
It would be the clash of Ravichandran Ashwin and Jos Buttler once again! This fixture could excite the cricket fans and why not? Both the teams have a star-studded line up. Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Chris Morris and Ben Stokes will take on Shimron Hetmyer, Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada.
There are two interesting battles that would come through as the game proceeds. One would be Ravi Ashwin vs Buttler and another one could bhi Anrich Nortje vs Buttler if Nortje plays.
Steve Smith would be facing his ex team Rajasthan Royals that is now led by the Indian Wk Batsman, Sanju Samson.
Wankhede means a lot of assistance for the pace bowlers and all it depends on is the line ups. If Kagiso Rabada and Nortje play then Delhi Capitals have a high chance of winning this match.
Hopefully, Nortje and Rabada would be back by the time they face Rajasthan Royals. Even in their absence Chris Woakes can play the role of the quickie. My money would be on Rajasthan Royals for this game as they would look to avenge the Capitals and would love to play through their batting order.
Chris Morris and Ben Stokes can prove to be the game changers for Rajasthan in this match alongside with the English quickie – Jofra Archer!
