Team News:

Delhi

Rishabh Pant's side have been given a major boost ahead of this contest with fast-bowler Anrich Nortje set to be available. The South African is expected to replace Tom Curran in the side which is expected to be the only change from the playing XI that featured against Rajasthan.

Punjab

KL Rahul's side will have a few decisions to make regarding the team selection. Riley Meredith has had a difficult start to the season and can be replaced be either Moises Henriques or Chris Jordan. On the other hand, Murugan Ashwin could also make way for Ravi Bishnoi.

Analysis:

Although the opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw failed in the previous contest, they have looked in good touch and are expected to repeat the heroics they displayed in their season opener against Chennai. Rishabh Pant is in the form of his life and could also be a good pick for captain/vice captain in your fantasy side. In the bowling department, Chris Woakes could be an X-Factor since he is getting a bit of assistance from the pitch at Wankhede.

KL Rahul is another player who could prove to be a valuable choice for captain/vice-captain in your side. While Chris Gayle could finally unleash his storm in this contest, Deepak Hooda is still a valuable pick despite a disappointing outing in previous match. Selection of Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh should be a no-brainer with both of them expected to ball important overs where they can take crucial wickets.
