Delhi's top order is one which most bowlers do not want to bowl to. They have been above par this season and the skill that they have is unmatched. Prithvi Shaw made a huge statement in the last game Delhi played at the Kotla when he slammed 99 while chasing to get his team across the line.

Shikhar Dhawan has beautifully played the role of an anchor for his team and he has batted for long durations to ensure his team stays out of trouble. Shreyas Iyer has been getting the starts but he hasn't been able to convert them into big scores but he will be looking to get a big score in this match. Colin Ingram has played beautifully for Delhi this season and has ended his team's search for a reliable No.5.

Apart from these batsmen, the one player who is going to be the difference between the two sides is Rishabh Pant. The last time these two sides met, he slammed an unbeaten 128 off just 63 balls to notch the highest score by an Indian in the IPL. He has been in tremendous form this season too, and he scored a 27 ball 78 in the first match of the season to make a statement of what he was going to do this tournament.

With such a powerhouse of batting in the team, Delhi will be able to chase down any target set and if batting first, they will surely put up a huge score- something that their bowlers will defend with ease.
