Delhi has a great squad but captain Rishabh Pant’s decision making came under the scanner in the last game as he didn’t allow Kuldeep to complete his full quota despite the spinner picking 4/14 from his three overs. However, to his credit, Pant admitted his mistake in the post-match interview and this time will have to make all his calls against a rampant Lucknow.
