Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has made a big statement ahead of Delhi Capitals game vs the Rajasthan Royals. Delhi are placed second on the points table while Rajasthan is fifth. Rishabh Pant’s side is potentially one win away from confirming a playoff berth in IPL 2021. Meanwhile, the focus is on how Ravichandran Ashwin bowls as he was costly in the side’s first game.

The off-spinner conceded 22 runs in 2.5 overs without adding anything to the wickets column. Reckoning that Delhi Capitals could give Amit Mishra the nod ahead of Ravichandran Ashwin, Sanjay Manjrekar said on Instagram.

“I was a little surprised that they played Ashwin ahead of Amit Mishra. Don’t think Ashwin bowled too well. I am not a big fan of Ashwin in white-ball cricket. So if they can get Mishra in, he becomes that wrist spinner that is always a game-changer in T20 cricket” said Manjrekar.

Sanjay Manjrekar said that the franchise would have been better off giving opportunities to someone like Amit Mishra who has been the side’s most successful bowler.

“People like Amit Mishra, low profile players, tend to get a raw deal. Every time Mishra plays, he has got wickets for Delhi and the other franchises he has played before.”

Overall both sides are even in terms of head to head but Delhi Capitals have had the wood over the Royals in the last five matches winning four games.

Sanjay Manjrekar Backs Delhi Capitals To Win

Sanjay Manjrekar revealed that he favors Delhi Capitals to win the match against the Royals on Saturday.

“Despite Rajasthan’s win in the last match, Delhi start as favorites. Punjab was the better side for 38 overs in the match. Something bizarre happened in the last two overs for Rajasthan to win,” Sanjay Manjrekar signed off.
