Jonny Bairstow is down for a chat. He says that they have played some good cricket together but they have just not clicked. There have been close games but unfortunately, they were on the other side of the result. Adds that there is always room for improvement and they need to improve in all the departments of the game. Mentions that he is coming from Test cricket, and then was in quarantine so it's been tough for him. But he has been striking the ball well and it takes two-three games to find the rhythm. Informs that he is happy to bat at whatever number the team wants him to bat at.
Mayank Agarwal, the skipper of Punjab says he is fine now and will play with some protection on the shoe. Informs that he and Ellis come in and informs it is a strategic change. They need to put up the best foot forward and play some good cricket. Adds that they have an opportunity to bat first and put up a big score on the board and defend it.
Rishabh Pant, the skipper of Delhi, says they will bowl first, there were unfortunate things happening around but they will not think about that much. Tells that there were parts where they bowled and batted well previously. Informs that as Marsh tested positive for Covid, Sarfaraz Khan comes in.
Punjab (Playing XI) - Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal (C) (In for Prabhsimran Singh), Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (WK), Shahrukh Khan, Nathan Ellis (In for Odean Smith), Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Vaibhav Arora, Arshdeep Singh
Delhi (Playing XI) - Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Rishabh Pant (C/WK), Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Sarfaraz Khan (In for Mitchell Marsh), Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed.
TOSS - Delhi have won the toss and they have elected to BOWL first!
PITCH REPORT - Simon Doull is down near the pitch. He says that it is the same surface where Kolkata and Rajasthan played a few nights back and it produced over 400 runs and again the batters will look to attack the shorter side. Adds that it is a beautiful surface, plenty of runs again, just a touch dry this time and so the spinners will come into play this time and he thinks it's still a 180-190 surface.
Punjab have a strong batting line up filled with attacking minded players but they need someone like Mayank Agarwal who gently anchors the innings, which they missed last time around. His availability will bring some stability. Punjab are coming with a loss on their back and their season till now can be seen just how a see-saw works. They look unstable and will hope to find their winning formula soon. Team and toss news coming up.
Let's talk about Delhi first, they are in the bottom half with just two wins for them. It was Mitchell Marsh first and now Tim Seifert has tested positive for Covid, Delhi will hope to strengthen the XI by shuffling the pack. Openers are not the issue but they fail to control the middle phase and will hope to find the solution against the attenuated Punjab side.
Hello darkness my old friend. You know whom we are all talking about. Covid has haunted Indian T20 League again but this time the precautions are taken and we are all set for the action. Let's not talk about that and rather focus on the game. Hello and a warm welcome to the coverage of the clash between Delhi and Punjab. This match was floating on thin air as there were Covid cases in Delhi's camp but now the game is shifted from Pune to Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai and we are all set for yet another intriguing contest.
... MATCH DAY...
