DEL vs KOL MPL Team: The Match 16 of the Dream 11 Indian Premier League 2020 will witness Delhi Capitals lock horns against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The Delhi team lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game. Although, the opposition team put up a par score on the board, and the bowlers were impressive with Rabada and Mishra scalping 2 wickets each. In the batting department, they could not quite gain momentum in the middle overs with the batters trying too hard to hit the ball and giving away wickets in crucial situations. They will have to improve their batting performance to restart their winning campaign.
On the other side, Kolkata Knight Riders posted a good total on the board with Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan doing the significant contributions for the team. The players like Rana and Russell have been impressive and their short stint at the crease has helped the team’s cause and looking at their track record, they can be quite potent in the upcoming matches. The team’s bowlers are the driving force of the team, with Mavi and Cummins in a terrific form. Along with them, Nagarkoti and Varun will be upbeat after the performance in the last match. It will be interesting to see which team comes over the top in the DEL vs KOL MPL prediction.
Match 16, Indian Premier League, 2020
Date- Monday, 3rd October 2020
Time- 7:30PM (IST), 6:00PM (Local Time)
Venue- Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
Pitch Report – Though the ground is a batting-friendly pitch, the teams that win the toss in T20 matches here prefer bowling first. This is considering the dew factor. As most of the T20 matches are evening-night matches, the dew falling and wide cracks on the pitch makes it difficult for the bowlers to control the ball in the second innings. The average first innings score here is around 165.
Weather Report- There are no chances of rain at Sharjah. It will be a full game.
DEL will look to have R Ashwin back in the game. They lost to SRH in the last game and will look to win this one and remain at the top of the points table.
KOL performed very well in the last game, especially the youngsters of the team. They will be pumped up to win this one.
Expected Change- No changes are expected from KOL, whereas one change from DEL is expected.
Risky Picks- Shimron Hetmyer from Delhi & Sunil Narine from Kolkata can be your risky picks for your fantasy teams in this game.
Here is the probable XI for the DEL vs KOL fantasy cricket tips.
DEL Playing XI (predicted)
Shreyas Iyer (c)
Rishabh Pant (wk)
KOL Playing XI (predicted)
D Karthik (c & wk)
S Dhawan- The star Indian opener will open the innings for the Delhi Capitals with Prithvi Shaw on the other side with him. He can be very nasty, when he's in good touch. He has scored 4648 runs in 162 IPL matches, which makes him one of the top IPL player as well. Though, he can't be left out or risked not being made the captain of our fantasy teams as he can trouble the opposition with his skills. It would be easy for him to score big at the small Sharjah.
S Gill- A talented young player who has featured in 2 ODIs for India and has shown amazing progress in the domestic circuit. In the IPL, he has played 623 runs in 30 matches playing for KKR. In the last match, he steered the team’s ship smoothly scoring 47 to help the team post a good total on the board and can be your captain choice in the DC vs KKR today match prediction.
S Iyer- The captain of the DC team was one of the most consistent players in the recent series for the national team. In the IPL 2019, he scored 463 runs and helped the team to reach the semi-finals of the tournament. In 3 matches, he has scored 82 runs but with a calm head and optimum skills, he can turn out to be one of the best vice-captain pick for your fantasy team.
E Morgan- England national team’s captain is looking in a great touch this year, with scoring 92 runs in 3 innings. Along with stabilizing the team in middle overs, he has helped their cause in the death overs and helped the team to put a good total on the board in the last match. So, he can be a good pick for your fantasy team.
S Narine- The West Indian spinner, who is also one of the most successful T20 player. He'll be my first choice of captain, as he bowls 4 overs and opens the batting too. He's a magical batsman and a spectacular spinner, he can't be left out of any fantasy team and also in the choice of captains. Narine has played 113 matches in the IPL and has scored 795 runs (most when opened) with 124 wickets from the ball. The team has so much hopes from Narine, but he is yet to perform to the levels.
M Stoinis- A talented all-rounder from Australia can be the X-factor for the Delhi Capitals team this year. He was bought by the franchise in 2015 and soon got released and then appeared for Punjab for three years. In 32 IPL matches, he has scored 542 runs and scalped 17 wickets. In his first appearance for Delhi Capitals, he scored 53 off 21 balls and also picked up 2 wickets. He has shown a good promise in the game and can be an important player for the team in the upcoming matches. With optimum batting skills at the death overs, he can increase your fantasy points in no time.
