Let’s take a look at some best picks for KXIP vs DC Dream11 Today Match Prediction

Captaincy Picks –

KL Rahul – The Orange Cap holder has been in some form this season and has displayed the much-criticised intent in his batting. He’s the best person to handle the pace threat in DC’s lineup as his IPL career numbers suggests with 324 runs at an average of 79.3 against right-arm fast bowlers.

M Agarwal – In the previous encounter against DC, he scored a stunning 89 which almost won the game for KXIP. He usually struggles a bit against high-end pace bowlers especially with the short ones but he can’t do much wrong with the form he’s in.

Vice-Captaincy Picks –

M Shami – He was the main wrecker-in-chief for KXIP in their first match against DC troubling their top-order with seam movement. But the decks have dried out taking away any movement that was available but if we go by Shami’s showing in the Superover against MI, he’s a certain pick.

M Ashwin – He’s been impressive in the last couple of matches and KXIP should rue the fact of dropping him early this season. Tracks in Dubai have been really supportive to spinners which plays in his favour.

Differential Pick –

G Maxwell  – His batting returns this season doesn’t warrant him a selection in KXIP’s eleven let alone your fantasy team, but with the presence of a high number of left-handers in DC’s batting unit will prompt Rahul to make him bowl some overs.

Delhi Capitals – Dream11 Fantasy Order

Seven different man of the match recipients in seven wins shows how Delhi Capitals aren’t relying on a single player and their success this season have been more about team effort. The absence of Pant and the forced exclusion of Hetmyer were conceived as a speed-breaker for DC’s campaign but S Dhawan has stood up in their absence with a match-winning hundred against CSK last match. With 14 points already on board, they’ve more or less sealed a playoff spot but would want to continue the winning momentum. R Pant seems fit and should come back in to the squad replacing A Rahane which also helps Hetmyer to come in for Carey.

Let’s take a look at some best picks for KXIP vs DC Dream11 Match Prediction

Captaincy Picks

K Rabada – If KXIP holds the Orange Cap, then DC has the Purple Cap with Rabada bagging 19 wickets from just 9 games. His high pace and bounce can trouble all KXIP batsmen apart from Rahul.

R Pant – With KXIP fielding two legspinners in the squad, his role in the team becomes much more important with his ability to take on those bowling types which is evident from his record which reads as 353 runs at an average of 50.4 and a strike-rate of 150.2 against the leg-spinners.

Vice-Captaincy Picks –

S Dhawan – He’s fresh off a hundred last match against CSK and from his own words doesn’t fear getting out at all. KXIP’s pace bowling attack doesn’t have the venom to trouble him in the Powerplay which sets him up for another good score.

P Shaw – He endured scores of 0,0 and 4 in his last 3 games after a great start to the tournament and will certainly look to make up for the lost chances against a weak pace bowling attack of KXIP.

Differential Pick –

R Ashwin – He’ll certainly love bowling against Gayle and Pooran, with Ashwin dismissing the former four times in IPL and has dismissed the latter in their previous encounter with a beautiful setup.

KXIP vs DC Dream11 Team Captain, Differential Picks

Team Composition Preferences –

1). All Rounders – Not much quality in this category and try to limit your picks to just one from this category.
2). Batsman – Top-order batsmen are the key here and also try to pick some batters who are good against spin.
3). Bowlers – Give high preference to spinners and hit-the-deck bowlers.
4). Wicket-Keeper – Three quality options available here and going with all three won’t be a bad option either.

Having more KXIP players in the KXIP vs DC Dream11 Match Prediction team is preferable.
