Hello and a warm welcome to game number 2 of the first double header of the season. This game sees the clash between Punjab and Delhi, at Wankhede. Both the teams head into this battle with a loss on their back as Punjab were completely dismantled by MS Dhoni-led Chennai, whereas, Delhi too looked like they would win their last game, but some crazy batting from Morris at the end, saw them lose out to Rajasthan. It is also KL Rahul’s birthday today and he will want to perform big and end the day, with a victory for his side. Will he be able to do so? Or does Pant have a different script planned in mind? Stay with us as we bring you the toss and the team updates.
