IPL 2021: Samson wins toss and opts to field

Mumbai: Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and opt to field. Rajasthan Royals have made two changes as David Miller and Jaydev Unadkat have come in for Ben Stokes and Shreyas Gopal. Delhi have also made two changes to their team, come in Kagiso Rabada and Lalit Yadav for Shimron Hetmyer and Amit Mishra.

Ben Stokes will no longer be available for Rajasthan Royals this season. In their season opener against Punjab Kings, Royals’ new captain Sanju Samson constantly sought Stokes’s counsel on the field, feeding off the experience of the English all-rounder. 

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have had the most convincing win any team so far this season. Their bowlers lost their way in the second half of the innings, however the Delhi openers made a win of Chennai’s total of 188. The Capitals’ bowling could be bolstered today with the addition of Kagiso Rabada, who has joined the team. 

Teams:

Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Ajinkya Rahane, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes, Ravichandran Ashwin, Lalit Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Tom Curran, Avesh Khan

Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Manan Vohra, Sanju Samson(w/c), David Miller, Jos Buttler, Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Chetan Sakariya, Jaydev Unadkat, Mustafizur Rahman
