DC vs SRH MPL Team: Two teams who are at the opposite end in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season 13 points table, Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are set to meet in game 11 at Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The season with most of the teams playing only two matches each hence the current standings don’t show a lot, but what it does show is how the teams have started. Delhi have started well with two wins and they are on top, SRH have started horribly with two straight losses and are last in the league. The Hyderabadis will be drawing confidence from the fact that they have a 9-6 record against the Delhiites and that they possess one of the most dangerous opening pair in the form of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Delhi, however, are not the team they were two seasons ago as they play with confidence now and have the high-octane South African pace duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, who have been wonderful for them. Overall, the match has all the ingredients to be a close contest and we can’t wait for the action to start!

DC vs SRH MPL Team, Playing XIs, Mega Contest
Team News DC: Delhi have two of their key Indian bowlers injured in R Ashwin and Ishant Sharma but that hasn’t stopped them from strangling the opposition. DC management has given hints that they will give some more time to the injured duo meaning you can expect them to field an unchanged eleven.
Team News SRH: Vijay Shankar missed the last game because of a back problem and Hyderabad will be desperate to have him back as they are missing a good middle-order batsman. Having two Afghan in the team, Nabi and Rashid, means that Kane Williamson will have to wait some more.
Expected Change: Wriddhiman Saha was ordinary in the last game and Shankar is likely to replace him if he is fit to play and that’s a very big if! MPL Predicted Playing 11.

DC vs SRH MPL Fantasy Cricket Tips
Rishabh Pant: The dynamic wicket-keeper enjoys playing against SRH and scores runs at an average of 46 and also has a hundred against them. It seems Delhi wants Pant to play maximum balls for them and that gives him an opportunity to secure maximum fantasy league points in the game.
Batting: 1806 Runs
Strike Rate: 160
Jonny Bairstow: The English opener was brilliant in the first game but failed in his second. He knows that a lot depends on him and David Warner if Sunrisers want to score big. Bairstow likes playing against the fast-bowlers and he will get plenty of it as DC have three bowlers who likes bowling fast.
Batting: 511 Runs
Strike Rate: 152
Kagiso Rabada: Rabada has been Mr. Consistent with the ball for DC and has two or more wickets in his last nine outings. He is a safe bet because he will earn you some solid points even when he is not at his best, imagine the kind of points he will earn you if he comes up with his best.
Rashid Khan: Rashid would have gotten the hint from the opening two matches that teams this year are trying to play him out which means wicket-taking is all the more difficult for him. However, knowing the fighter Rashid is, he will come up with a counter!
X-Factors – Differential Picks
Shikhar Dhawan: Dhawan looked switched-off in the first match but hit some good shots in his second outing. Dhawan would be eager to go against his previous team and go big. He knows the bowlers that are on offer and that could work in his favor, also he is an international player and he will come good sooner rather than later.
Strike Rate: 124
David Warner: The captain of SRH has had two quiet games, yes, he was unlucky in the first game getting run-out at the non-striker’s end, and would be hoping for long outing in the middle come this game. He is imperial to his team’s success and fans would be eager to see a long Warner-innings.
Strike Rate: 142
MPL Most Affordable Players
Anrich Nortje (Credits 8): The burly South African has been very good for DC and bowls a hard length. He can bowl at high-speed and can rattle the batsman.
Priyam Garg (Credits 8): Garg has been batting too far down the order and SRH management might give him a chance early considering the time he needs to settle. The young stars are doing well in the tournament and Garg would be hoping to do the same.
