Tips for Dream11 Fantasy League Team:
For the Wicketkeeper:
There is no doubt that Pant is perhaps India’s best wicket-keeper at the moment, but Dhoni will remain a fan favourite still and India’s legendary wicket-keeper will try to show that his shrewdness remains Intact. So, we should go with Rishabh Pant.
For the Batsmen:
Ambati Rayudu is familiar with the Mumbai surface, Rahane and Uthappa are good picks too. Shikhar Dhawan will open for Delhi Capitals, he had a brilliant record in the last IPL season where he scored 618 runs at an average of 44.14, including two centuries. Shikhar Dhawan will be another safe pick for multiplier’s choice here.
So, we’ll go with Ambati Rayudu, Shikhar Dhawan, Robin Uthappa, Faf du Plessis.
For the All-rounders:
Sam Curran is in good form with bat and scored a 95 not-out against India in his last game. He will be looking to create an impact with both bat as well as ball in this match. Marcus Stoinis showed a gracious all-around performance in the IPL last year by scoring 352 runs and picking 13 wickets to his name. He can prove to be an X-factor for Delhi Capitals in this season once again.
So, we should go with Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran and Marcus Stoinis.
For the Bowlers:
Chahar and Thakur, another good captaincy pick for the wickets he gets in the death, are certain picks from the bowling department.
So, we should choose Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin.
For Captain and Vice-Captain:
Shikhar Dhawan finished second on the Orange Cap list in IPL 2020, holding up one end of the opening combination as his partners failed miserably on a consistent basis. Marcus Stoinis was one of DC’s best performers in their run to the final in IPL 2020. He contributed regularly with the bat, even winning a couple of Man of the Match awards for blitzkriegs at the death. So,we can take Shikhar Dhawan as captain and Marcus Stoinis as vice-captain.
