They performed very well in the last game in both departments and would look to continue the same form. While the Delhi Capitals would look to play well and forget the last game’s loss. They would look to better their batting aspect, as the bowlers have been doing well this season.
Delhi Capitals lost their last game to Kolkata Knight Riders, where the batting of the team couldn’t put up a big total on the board, and got tumbled down to 127/9, which eventually was not a good score at all. Bowlers of the team tried really hard to defend the chase, but Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine finished them with their batting in the last couple of overs.
He is still holding the orange cap with him and will look to avoid any competition to him, and take the lead in this game. Dhawan is a top batsman from this team, and is very consistent, which makes him a top pick. He has good stats against the Mumbai Indians, which also adds as a plus. Although he is not in a proper form in the last 2 games, Shikhar can be a trusted pick with 454 runs in 11 matches.
The pacer has been terrific in this season, and is on the second position in the most wicket taker’s race. Avesh is under-rated in DC’s bowling, as they have two good bowlers, and his name goes unsung. He is a top pick from the Delhi team, and will be worth the pick. In 11 matches of IPL 2021, Avesh has scalped 18 wickets at an average of 16.66.
