Delhi Capitals made a late change by replacing opener Jason Roy with all-rounder Daniel Sams.
Daniel Sams is an all-rounder from New South Wales, who made his first-class debut in 2017. Primarily a left-arm medium pace bowler, Sams is also a useful pinch-hitter lower down the order.
In 2017-18, he played for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League and immediately made an impact picking four wickets in his debut game. However, it was in 2019-20 that Sams had his breakthrough BBL Season. Plying his trade with the Sydney Thunder, he picked up 30 wickets in 17 games, and ended as the highest wicket-taker in the competition. This was the fifth-highest number of wickets taken by any bowler in a T20 competition, putting him in the league of T20 legends like Dwayne Bravo.
