Sarfaraz Khan and Khaleel Ahmed come in the DC’s playing 11 for KS Bharat and Chetan Sakariya. 

“I think we were looking to bowl but toss is not in our control. We have two changes – Khaleel comes back after injury in place of Chetan Sakariya, Sarfaraz comes in for KS Bharat. I think the only thing we were focusing on was how to prepare for the match. Yes, there were so many things going around but as a captain I can make sure, talking to the players, that they won’t be thinking about all this,” Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant said at the toss.
