Rajat Bhatia will lead Delhi in their last league match against Bengal starting from December 15. Bhatia will be the third skipper Delhi will play under this season after Aakash Chopra and Virat Kohli.

Bhatia got the job as Virat Kohli, who led the side in the last two matches, is away on national duty, and Aakash Chopra, the regular skipper for the season, has conveyed to the selectors that he wouldn’t be available to lead Delhi for this season.

Chopra, who is still recuperating and wouldn’t be available for the upcoming match, refused to elaborate. “I don’t want to distract the team, which is doing so well, by making any comment. I will not lead the side, but I will be available to play as soon as I am fit. I have absolutely no problem in playing under any skipper,” he said.

While the rest of the squad remains the same, Ishant Sharma will come into the squad in place of Virat Kohli.

Delhi need to gain atleast a point from the match to assure themselves a berth in the quarters.
