Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders, two teams with plenty of exciting youngsters, will take the field in a bid to keep their campaigns on track. Delhi Capitals started their IPL 2020 campaign brilliantly, registering 2 wins in their first two games. They did suffer a jolt in the last against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but they possess one of the most complete teams in the tournament and will aim at having a quick turnaround.
KKR started off with a loss, but the players were able to shrug off their rustiness and KKR henceforth went on to register two consecutive wins. While KKR might look to add some extra stability to their batting line up down the order, the bowlers have done exceedingly well, especially the young Indian pacers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti. With the match being held in Sharjah, a graveyard for bowlers, it will be important to pick your players accordingly.
Here are the three must-pick players in your Dream11 Fantasy team for DC vs KKR game:
1. Andre Russell (10.5 credits)
Andre Russell hasn’t set the IPL on fire yet but looked to be finding the top gear in the last game. He scored a quickfire 24 of 14 balls against RR, which included 3 massive sixes, but was unfortunately dismissed before he could explode fully.
Nevertheless, with the extremely short boundaries, Dre Russ is sure to get a promotion in the batting order, and it would be blasphemous not to have him in your team. If Russell gets going, it will be impossible to stop him. Add to that, due to his improving fitness, he may even end up bowling a few overs which could give you even more points. Hence, Russell is a must pick.
2. Rishabh Pant (9.5 credits)
Rishabh Pant, who has had two incredible preceding seasons, hasn’t been striking the ball as cleanly as he is known to. But Sharjah could be the perfect venue for him to unleash himself. With an IPL career strike rate of 160, and more than 1000 runs in the last couple of years, we know what Pant is capable of.
He will definitely look to play some attacking cricket, and if he gets into some kind of hitting form, it could be a nightmare for the KKR bowlers. Trust the young Pant to come into his own in this game.
3. Shubman Gill (9 credits)
Shubman Gill has been one of the most impressive batsmen in this year’s IPL, with 124 runs in 3 games. He has looked calm and unflustered while batting and has hardly played any false shots. He has also displayed an ability to keep finding the gaps regularly.
Like Mayank Agarwal showed in an earlier game, you don’t have to be a huge hitter to score runs in Sharjah. Gill with his repertoire of strokes and a good run of form behind him, will no doubt once again be in contention to be one of the top performers of this game.
