Ahmedabad: Delhi Capitals won the toss and opted to bat first against Gujarat Titans in Match No. 44 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at Narendra Modi Stadium, here on Tuesday.
Delhi Capitals captain David Warner informed that Mitch Marsh is sick and Rilee Rossouw comes in his place while pacer Khaleel Ahmed also makes his comeback.
"We will bat first. Nice wicket, looks a bit dry. Want to put runs on the board. We have to come out positive, we got some young talent and hopefully, they all will get to showcase it tonight," said Warner at the toss.
"Unfortunately Mitch Marsh is sick, so Rilee Rossouw comes in for him. Khaleel has recovered from the niggle and he is back as well," he added.
On the other hand, the table-toppers Gujarat Titans made no change in their playing XI.
"We were planning to bowl as well, thought chasing would be an ideal thing here. We spoke earlier about the kind of intent we keep and bowling-wise we have been fantastic and want to stay calm and humble. We are playing the same team," said Gujarat skipper Hardik Pandya.
