TEAM NEWS, SQUADS, PREDICTED XIs

DD SQUAD: Mohammed Shami, Karun Nair, Sam Billings, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Zaheer Khan, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Rishabh Pant, CV Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Ben Hilfenhaus, Marlon Samuels.

Despite the exit of a host of international stars, Delhi came up with a condemnable performance against Gujarat Lions as they won a thrilling match after a superb knock from Shreyas Iyer.

Rishabh Pant hurt his finger during the game against Gujarat. If he misses this match, then Aditya Tare could come into the team.

PREDICTED DD XI: Samson, Nair, Pant (wk), Iyer, Samuels, Anderson, Brathwaite, Cummins, Mishra, Shami, Zaheer (c).

RPS SQUAD: MS Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane, Steve Smith, Faf du Plessis, Ashok Dinda, Ankush Bains, Rajat Bhatia, Ankit Sharma, Ishwar Pandey, Adam Zampa, Jaskaran Singh, Baba Aparajith, Deepak Chahar, Usman Khawaja, Mayank Agarwal, Ben Stokes, Jaydev Unadkat, Rahul Chahar, Saurabh Kumar, Dan Christian, Milind Tandon, Rahul Tripathi, Manoj Tiwary, Lockie Ferguson, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir, Washington Sundar.

Imran Tahir and Faf du Plessis have left the squad for international commitments. The former was a key member of the Pune team and his place in the XI is likely to be taken by another leg-spinner in Adam Zampa.

The form of Indian star Ajinkya Rahane is a bit of a concern for the Pune-based franchise as he has failed to score a single half-century in his last 11 innings.

PREDICTED RPS XI: Rahane, Tripathi, Smith (c), Tiwary, Stokes, Dhoni (wk), Christian, Sundar, Thakur, Zampa, Unadkat.
