Venue : Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi, India
Today’s IPL match is another knock-out game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. On the other hand, another win for Delhi on Sunday will confirm their berth in the playoffs. So there is a lot on the line for both the teams to play for, on a sluggish Delhi surface, where both batting units have their work cut off for today.
Bangalore has got to bring in either Hetmyer or Klassen in place of Moeen Ali. Other than that they might consider an additional spinner in place of the underperforming Tim Southee. Delhi is likely to bring in Sandeep Lamichhane in place of Chris Morris.
Our Dream11 experts predict another sluggish surface likely to be in store on Sunday at Feroz Shah Kotla, where spin will play a big role. Dew is likely to aid the chasing team, according to the forecast.
AB de Villiers
He has outplayed Virat Kohli in terms of consistency for Bangalore in this season. But, unusually he struggles against spin, where he has a strike rate of below 120. In today’s IPL match, he has to face a lot of that in Delhi where spinners have more impact. Adding to this, he has a Strike rate of 108 & 74 against Sandeep Lamichhane and Axar Patel respectively in the last few T20s. Hence, if he has to replicate his present form against Delhi he has to overcome the spin challenge, according to our Dream11 expert predictions.
He is coming after a match-winning knock against Rajasthan and he is likely to continue the form against RCB as per our expert IPL predictions. He has a strike rate of 200 against Umesh Yadav & Yuzvendra Chahal in last few T20s. Washington Sundar is only the RCB bowler who has troubled Pant in last few encounters. We suggest that you have him in all your Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.
He is a must-have in Dream11 Fantasy Cricket team according to our expert predictions. He is leading the Delhi bowling attack from the front and he holds the purple cap of this season. In today’s IPL match, there is every chance that he will continue his recent form. He has dismissed all the RCB batsmen at least once, and got the better of Devilliers twice in the last few T20s.
The Delhi Skipper may have been dismissed early in the last two IPL matches, but he is too good a player to do the same thrice on the trot. His smashing record against RCB bowlers will encourage him for today’s IPL match. According to our Dream11 expert predictions, Shreyas returning to Delhi might come in handy for the team, as he is in good form at this venue.
