The capitals have little cause to change a combination that worked so well just a day ago. The only consideration could be bringing in an extra fast bowler to replace of Praveen Dubey. They can also cosnider bringing back Prithvi Shaw to open the innings in oen the most important game for them.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Marcus Stoinis, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Pravin Dubey/Harshal Patel
Mumbai Indians (MI)
Rohit Sharma was cautiously optimistic about Boult’s recovery from the injury that forced him off the field after bowling just a couple of overs in the first qualifier. He said: “Trent is looking good. He is going to have a session with us today and we’ll see how it goes. He pulled up pretty well in the last few days. So, fingers crossed, hopefully he plays.” They have no reason to make changes.
