New Delhi: Senior pacer Ishant Sharma and veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan will turn up for the beleaguered Delhi side in their next Ranji Trophy encounter against Hyderabad starting 25 December.
Ishant was given rest for a couple of Ranji Trophy games as a part of BCCI's workload management programme and he will now try to get back into the groove before the New Zealand Test tour.
As far as Dhawan is concerned, he had a deep gash on his knee while playing in the Syed Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and had to get 25 stitches. The left-hander has now been declared fit by the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and will get some game-time before the international games.
"Ishant and Shikhar will be playing for Delhi. My colleague Sarandeep Singh will be watching that match," said Prasad, who is flying to Surat on Tuesday to watch Jasprit Bumrah's comeback to competitive cricket.
Bumrah, who was out of action due to stress fractures, will feature in Gujarat's game against Kerala.

Gambhir feels it would be unfair to force Bumrah to play in all the matches against England, starting 5 February in Chennai.
Ajinkya Rahane, who led India in their 2-1 series victory over Australia after the Adelaide Test, remains vice-captain of the unit while Jasprit Bumrah continues to head the bowling unit.
The jibes were directed at pacers Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah on the third and fourth days of the match and six fans were thrown out of the stadium after the Indian team complained to the umpires.
