Marcus Stoinis put up a stunning performance in the second qualifier. Delhi's all-rounder scalped 3 wickets in 3 overs for 26 runs and scored 38 runs off 27 balls. So far, he has scored 352 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 149.
Rishabh Pant has not yet had a standout performance and was mostly seen struggling throughout the season. If required, he must shoulder the responsibility of playing the role of a finisher.
