Marcus Stoinis (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Delhi Capitals. Stoinis has been scoring at an average of 32 whereas his S/R has been above 160. He has picked six wickets in his bowling as well and is the best option in this category.
DC vs CSK Team Bowlers
Kagiso Rabada (Price 9.5) and Anrich Nortje (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Delhi Capitals. Both the African pacers are on fire at the moment. Rabada is the highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 18 wickets under his belt whereas Nortje bowled the fastest spell of IPL 2020 in the last game and has picked 10 wickets in the tournament. They are un-droppable options.
