Fantasy Tips and suggestions:
Wicketkeeper: DC’s Rishabh Pant and KKR’s Dinesh Karthik, both are magnificent wicketkeeper-players. Rishabh Pant had shown a great form in the opening match which he continued against CSK but couldn’t get going.
Batsmen: For DC, Shikhar Dhawan has been successful with providing a good start to the team but his strike rate has been an issue with him and his team. Colin Ingram also played a fine knock against MI in the first match but couldn’t repeat his performance against CSK. On the other hand, Chris Lynn can provide a good start to KKR and the in-form Nitish Rana is also a must pick for your Dream 11 team. Robin Uthappa has also scored a half-century in the last game of KKR.
All-rounders: For Delhi, Axar Patel is a fine all-rounder who delivered an economical spell against CSK and is also capable to score with the bat if the opportunity is given. Chris Morris should replace Keemo Paul as he can have more impact on the game with both, bat as well as the ball. While for KKR, Andre Russell has proved his worth by his unbelievable knocks in both the matches and also bowled well. Sunil Narine can play the role of a trump card for KKR as well.
Bowlers: For DC, among pacers, Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma are leading attackers. Although Ishant struggled against CSK he is expected to deliver better in the next fixture. Kiwi pacer Trent Boult’s inclusion will strengthen the bowling attack of DC. Lockie Ferguson will lead the pace bowling attack for KKR while Kuldeep Yadav will lead the spin bowling attack.
Captain: KKR’s Nitish Rana, Andre Russell have shown a great form in the IPL 2019 till now. For DC, Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan are the most dependable players.
