The pitch looks dry and probably take some turn and dew might also be a factor tonight. Riley Meredith in place of Stubbs. The other change is about the impact on players. We will see how it goes. When the chips are down you need the senior players to stand up. Jofra Archer is not available.”

We got a forced change, Khaleel Ahmed is injured and we got Yash Dhull in his 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,” Delhi Capitals captain David Warner said.
