Rishabh Pant won the toss as Delhi Capitals elected to bowl first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the manga IPL 2024 encounter at Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday. Anrich Nortje returned to Delhi's playing XI with Ishant Sharma missing out on the game due to a back spasm.

Ishant, 35, took two wickets for eight against Gujarat Titans in the last game and has been excellent in the IPL 2024 so far. After winning the toss, Rishabh revealed that the veteran pacer suffered a back spasm just five minutes before the toss. Rishabh also confirmed the return of David Warner and Anrich Nortje to Delhi's playing eleven while Lalit Yadav replaced struggling Sumit Kumar.

"We're going to bowl first," Rishabh Pant said. "Wicket looks pretty good, we would like to chase because we are playing more as a batting unit. We have more batters. Maybe there will be dew. The only thing we said was to stay in the contest. Yes, they've been playing really good cricket but you can't let them get away with it. Ground doesn't matter, end of the day you have to play good cricket. We're looking to improve each and every match. Instead of Sumit, Lalit comes in. Instead of Ishant, who had a back spasm just 5 minutes back, Nortje comes in."

Delhi Capitals Playing XI: David Warner, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI: Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wK), Abdul Samad, Nitish Reddy, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, T Natarajan.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Impact Subs: Umran Malik, Anmolpreet Singh, Akash Maharaj Singh, Glenn Phillips, Washington Sundar

Delhi Capitals Impact Subs: Prithvi Shaw, Shai Hope, Praveen Dubey, Rasikh Dar Salam, Sumit Kumar
