DC vs MI IPL 2021: 3 Potential Game-Changer In Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians Dream11 Grand League, April 20


DC vs MI Dream11 Team Prediction: In a game of small margins, sometimes it’s the players under pressure, staggering on the periphery of the roster and in the team only because other options seem more fragile, who produce clutch moments.

The match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals is that one special game, which could be a rehearsal for the ultimate thing, the one which may be played in the finals. But before that, there is a smokescreen of the regular season. Having said that, neither team will want to hand a psychological advantage to the other. Every player will have to be on their toes. We name three players who are feeling the heat but can erupt with something special here in DC vs MI IPL 2021 match.

IPL 2021 DC vs MI Dream11 Team Prediction

1. Steve Smith: The former Australian captain failed to make an impact on his debut for Delhi Capitals against Punjab Kings. Considering Ricky Ponting had to flirt with the team combination, with Ajinkya Rahane and Tom Curran had to be dropped, Smith will be under no illusion that his spot in DC playing 11 is far from guaranteed. But the 31-year-old is a premium player and can’t be overlooked after one failure.

Reasons To Consider Steve Smith As a Risky Option:

  • Consistency: His international record overshadows the numbers he has managed in the IPL.
  • Pressure: Considering he is “Steve Smith”, not getting a start won’t bode well with his ego and reputation. He is under immense pressure.

Reasons To Pick Steve Smith In DC vs MI Dream11 Grand Leagues

  • The very best: Along with Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson, Steve Smith is one of the best players in the world.
  • Clutch Gene: Throughout his career, Smith has played some crucial innings in big games.

Steve Smith in IPL
As A Batsman
Matches: 96
Not Outs: 20
Runs: 2342
High-Scores: 101
Strike-Rate: 128.89
100s: 01
50s: 11
4s: 212
6s: 58

2. Kagiso Rabada: Picked up 30 wickets in just 17 games last season and deservedly won the purple cap. But the South African speedster is yet to make a mark in this year’s edition. That said, he is a hot-shot player who is crucial to DC’s title ambitions.

Reasons To Consider Kagiso Rabada As a Risky Option:

  • Timing: After arriving from South Africa, Kagiso Rabada had to go into quarantine, thus missing out on DC’s training camps. Rabada is still trying to find his feet.

Reasons To Pick Kagiso Rabada In DC vs MI Dream11 Grand Leagues

  • Premium: No doubt, Kagiso Rabada is one of the very best at what he does on the cricket field.
  • Clutch: Rabada may be going for runs, but he has picked up three wickets in two games.

Kagiso Rabada IPL Record:
Matches: 37
Balls Bowled: 852
Runs Given: 1177
Wickets: 64
Best: 4/21
Economy: 8.28

3. Marcus Stoinis: So far he has been a pale shadow of what he did in IPL 2020. But the 27 runs off 13 balls against Punjab Kings will surely give him confidence ahead of the match against Mumbai Indians.

Reasons To Consider Marcus Stoinis As a Risky Option:

  • Form: Stoinis is struggling for form and is yet to hit the heights of last season.
  • Pressure: With only four spots for overseas players, Stoinis’ place in DC Playing 11 could come under serious threat if he fails to haul himself out of the pothole.

Reasons To Pick Marcus Stoinis In DC vs MI Dream11 Grand Leagues

  • Two-Way: His all-round skills make him a rather safe option in Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.
