With Bairstow and Warner both having notched up centuries the previous time around on way to the biggest opening partnership in the Indian Premier League, the home side will be wary of their ability to take on the bowlers. Early wickets are the need of the hour for Delhi and this calls for a massive call to rope Boult back into the setup to accompany Rabada with the new ball.
The duo is a deadly exponent in the pace department and if they get going, they can take this match by the scruff for Delhi and delivery an exceptional and accountable performance in unison.
