In a significant development, Mitchell Marsh and Tim Seifert have joined the Delhi camp ahead of the clash against Kolkata. The two had earlier tested positive for Covid-19, and Marsh had to be admitted to the hospital. The duo has now recovered from the virus and joined the team for practice sessions on Wednesday.
The Delhi team's official Twitter handle shared the good news.
"We are feeling GOOD. Great to have you back at the training, boys," read the caption of the team.
Here is the tweet
We are feeling GOOD 🥺💙

Delhi has been struggling to find good form this season. They have played seven games in the season so far and have won only three of them. The Rishabh Pant-led team is presently at seventh place on the points table. In the absence of Marsh and Seifert, Delhi played two games against Punjab and Rajasthan. While the team had a comfortable nine-wicket victory against Punjab, they lost a high-scoring match against Rajasthan by 15 runs.
While chasing a huge target of 223 runs in the second innings, Delhi came very close to winning the match against Rajasthan. However, the equation came down to 36 runs in the last over. Rovman Powell hit three sixes on the first three balls, but could not finish the game after a no-ball controversy broke his momentum.
The men in blue and red will play their next game against Shreyas Iyer's Kolkata on the 28th of April at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The selection of the two returnees in the playing XI has not been confirmed yet. Marsh, however, is likely to be added in the playing XI.
Here's a look at our predicted playing XI for Delhi against Kolkata.
Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Rovman Powell, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed
