It is no secret that in the past, the two have had social media engagements which gave way to speculations.

Unlike last year, Prithvi will be expected to be more consistent, something that he has lacked in the past. Also shot selection is something he will have to be watchful about this season. He will be expected to get the Capitals off to good starts and then continue as far as possible. But again, it is his impact in the powerplay overs, with the hard new ball, is when the franchise will expect him to come hard at it and put the opposition on the backfoot.

The Capitals are at the top of the points table with two wins in two matches. They will be hoping to keep the winning momentum going. They will also be hoping that Kagiso Rabada – who is the current purple cap holder – stays fit throughout the season as he will be the leader of the bowling unit. The Capitals are next scheduled to face the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on September 29 in Abu Dhabi.
