KKR vs DC Dream11 Captain and Vice-captain: Shikhar Dhawan to neutralize Eoin Morgan and Co.

Thee Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will be up against Delhi Capitals (DC) for match number 42 in the Dream11 IPL. The Knight Riders were humiliated in the previous game to the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as they got restricted to 84 for the fall of eight wickets in 20 overs. Meanwhile, Delhi also were on the receiving end of a defeat in their most recent fixture to the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Nevertheless, they do occupy the top spot on the points table and will be keen on bouncing back with a win. Both sides do have quite a few quality players who could make an impact in the game.

Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan has been one of the central figures with the bat for the Kolkata Knight Riders. Morgan has scored 278 runs from the 10 appearances. Though he is yet to score a fifty this season, the KKR skipper does have an average of 39.71 and a strike rate of 125.79. In the absence of Andre Russell, Morgan’s inclusion in the eleven is of high value.

Shikhar Dhawan

The Delhi Capitals opener has been in sublime form and has recently become the first ever batsman to register back-to-back hundreds in an IPL season. Shikhar Dhawan has scored knocks of 50 and above from his last four games and will once again be in contention to score a few more. The Knights will be aware of the threat Dhawan possesses and will be desperate to get him out early. He can be included to the KKR vs DC Today Match Prediction.

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

Lockie Ferguson

The New Zealand international has had an immediate impact for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and should be persisted with. Lockie Ferguson has scalped four wickets from the last two games and is looking as decisive as ever. In his first game, Ferguson picked up three wickets for 15 runs in his four over spell. Which was then followed by two more wickets in the super over versus SRH. It’s easy to recognize at this stage that Ferguson is the most important bowler for the Knights.

Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada has been instrumental with the ball in hand and has the purple cap to his head with 21 wickets from the last 10 games. The South African international with his pace, bounce and variations in the middle overs makes him a real asset for the Delhi Capitals.

Smart Picks

Shubman Gill

The 20-year-old has been among the runs up the order and is expected to continue opening the innings for KKR. Shubman Gill has scored 279 runs from the last 10 matches, which includes two fifties, an average of 34.66 and a strike rate of 111.82. He could be picked for KKR vs DC Dream11 Prediction

Anrich Nortje

The express fast bowler has impressed with his pace and knack of chipping in with the wickets at regular intervals for Delhi Capitals. In spite of this being the first ever IPL outing for Nortje, he has struck authority to an extent by picking up 12 wickets from the last nine games at an economy rate of 7.75 per over.
