Dhawan’s great form, but Shaw is struggling
Shikhar Dhawan is in excellent form for Delhi and has scored centuries in both the previous matches, but due to the failure of the rest of the batsmen, the team suffered a defeat against Kings XI Punjab.
Young Prithvi Shaw will have to show more responsibility in the top order. Shaw was unable to open an account in two of the last four innings. Captain Shreyas Iyer is not able to do the way he was batting before getting a muscle strain.
Rishabh Pant, who returned after recovering from injury, was also seen struggling at the crease in the last match. Apart from Iyer and Pant, Marcus Stoinis is the backbone of Delhi’s middle order.
