With a much clearer picture now, each team having played exactly four games, three changes have been made from week one’s side.
Reflective of the tournament so far, the team bats deep and has thin bowling stocks, relying on four overs from Kieron Pollard, who’s averaging one over per game.
The changes have occurred from positions six to eight in the batting order; with Marcus Stoinis, Sam Curran, and Axar Patel making way.
Faf du Plessis has handed over captaincy duties to Shreyas Iyer, who slots in at number six with 170 runs, batting average of 56.66, and 150-plus strike rate. Iyer is captaining the first-placed Delhi Capitals, making him a perfect fit for the team’s captaincy.
Kieron Pollard gets the nod at number seven, his 138 runs come at an average of 138 having only being dismissed once, and he boasts a whopping 212.30 strike rate.
Rashid Khan has taken the economic bowler mantle off Axar Patel. The leggie’s only taken four wickets, but at an economy of 5.22, especially impressive considering the batter-friendly conditions.
