Warner is out of quarantine and available for the next match. There is however injury concerns surrounding Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh who is yet to fully recover from injury.
South African pacer Nortje has been recovering from back and hip injuries suffered last year. In IPL 2021 Nortje picked up 12 wickets in 8 games at an average of just 15.58.
However with most foreign players now available for DC they are now facing a problem of plenty according to Watson. The biggest challenge in the next few games will be picking the final playing XI.
LSG have built a very strong team in their first season.
KL Rahul when he gets going can be really dangerous and Quinton de Kock also looks ready to fire. I played a little bit with Deepak Hooda during my playing days with Rajasthan Royals and he has great skills.
The have great firepower in bowling as well led by Avesh Khan. DC players know Avesh very well and we’ll look to tap into some of the weaknesses in Avesh’s bowling.
In 2019 the Kiwis played the 50-over World Cup final but lost to England on boundary count.
They have now earned the right to play the final of the ongoing T20 World Cup in the UAE.
New Zealand will play either Pakistan or Australia in Sunday’s final.
Look we’re a bunch of Kiwis. There are only five million of us so we’re obviously very proud to be representing our country.
Yeah obviously we’ve had some success in the last few years.
We know that we have a final Sunday and whoever we’re taking on should be good fun.
Chasing 167 the Kiwis needed 57 from 24 with Mitchell and James Neesham in the middle.
It probably sounds weird but it never felt like it win was out of our grasp.
I thought the way that Neesh came out and really dominated that one over really set the momentum heading into those last few so yeah; take my cap off to him. He played a hell of a knock.
To be honest once the rate gets up a bit sort of a bit hyped you start just trying to make sure that you get your matchups that work for you and you’re trying to hit as far as you can to be honest.
Yeah for us we were very lucky that we sort of held our platform. We didn’t lose too many wickets in the middle there and it allowed us to take some risks at certain times to try and catch up.
For me it was nice to sort of give it out in the middle the last few.
