Delhi lost by 15 runs to Rajasthan Royals, a game due to a no-ball controversy in a high full toss that resulted in assistant coach Praveen Amre being banned for one match.

Head coach Ricky Ponting saw a tough end to quarantine and felt helpless. Now he is back with the team and is confident about finding the speed that will allow his players to play according to their potential.

The Delhi Capitals are currently seventh in the points table with three wins from seven matches. KKR are in eighth place after losing their last four matches. With Delhi’s batting line-up of David Warner, Prithviraj Shaw, Rishabh Pant and Powell, the KKR’s varied attacks need to be vigilant to stop the violence.

Warner, after hitting three back-to-back half-centuries, failed against the Royals and will need an itch to play another impressive knock. The same goes for Shaw, who has to convert his start to a big score.

Delhi’s latest option at number three, Sarfaraz Khan, has also failed and it remains to be seen whether he will be benched. Pant, like all-rounders Lalit Yadav, Shardul Tagore and Akshar Patel, will have to take on more responsibilities.

Pant alone can turn the tide of any game, but he didn’t play to his potential and came to Wankhede on Thursday, where the tracks helped the batsmen, the captain wanted to come out better. Add to that, Powell’s six-hitting ability, Delhi has all the firepower it needs.

Delhi’s bowling has done well, but Jos Butler’s hammer should be forgotten. Khalil Ahmed is taking early wickets and complements Mustafizur Rahman, who can be effective even in death.

While Kuldeep Yadav has rescued himself, other spinners Akshar and Lalit have also played their roles perfectly. The trio have combined 20 wickets and their 12 overs will be crucial.

KKR, meanwhile, need to correct their combination and give the batsmen, including captain Iyer, an improved display. Shreyas failed in the last game and the opening pairing of Sam Billings and Sunil Narine also failed. Continuing with the same openers, the two will have to start offensively.

For Shreyas, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh and Venkatesh Iyer, it will not be an easy task, especially against the Delhi spinners. Pushing Venkatesh down in the middle order has not worked yet. Shreyas said it was just a matter of time and once KKR left they would be irresistible as a team.

KKR pacer Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee were right on the money. The only weak link seems to be Varun Chakraborty who is having an irresistible season.
