Three Match-winners for Delhi Capitals

Khaleel Ahmed 

The Indian left-arm pacer has been in good rhythm in this tournament. He has taken nine wickets in the tournament and is currently the highest wicket-taker for his team in IPL 2024.

Khaleel Ahmed has good numbers against the Titans. He has picked up five wickets in three matches. Khaleel's economy has been 8.00 against GT, while his average and strike rate have been 19.20 and a strike rate of 14.40, respectively. Hence, Khaleel could be a match-winner for the Capitals in this game. 

Ishant Sharma

The experienced Indian pacer has not picked up enough wickets in IPL 2024. However, Ishant's rhythm has been decent in the tournament. His record against the Titans is also good. Ishant Sharma has played only one game against the Titans and has picked up two wickets in four overs while conceding 23 runs. 

Jake Fraser-McGurk

The young Australian batter was impressed with his performance during his IPL debut. Jake Fraser-McGurk scored 55 runs in the first match at a strike rate of 157.14. The wicket at the Narendra Modi Stadium might suit McGurk, especially if the Capitals are batting second. Given his current form and hitting abilities, McGurk could become a match-winner for the Capitals.
