DC vs RCB: Tips to pick the winning Dream11
The IPL 2019 has reached its business end. The match number 46 would see an in-form Delhi Capitals take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Saturday. This match is extremely important for RCB. If they lose, their campaign would 'get over'. Meanwhile, here we take a look at the ideal Dream11 for this tie.
Parthiv Patel should be the man behind the stumps
Selecting the wicket-keeper of this Fantasy XI is tough. While Rishabh Pant is in brutal form, so is RCB's Parthiv Patel. However, we feel that Parthiv, being an opener, has an edge over Pant as the latter bats in the middle-order. Further, Parthiv has more experience behind the stumps, thus making him the favorite. Being a slower track, Kotla doesn't suit Pant's natural game.
AB, Shaw, Kohli part of a deadly batting line-up
The batting line-up starts with AB de Villiers, who has been deadly of late. He scored an unbeaten 82-run knock in the last game. He would be supported by Prithvi Shaw, who is slowing proving himself as an opener. In any game involving RCB, Virat Kohli is a no-brainer while DC's skipper Shreyas Iyer would be the ideal number four of this XI.
Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel among top all-rounders
Among the all-rounders, Delhi are likely to have the services of Axar Patel. He has been their regular wicket-taker. Further, with the match being held in Kotla, Axar can be effective. Delhi's Chris Morris can be a handy option, given his pace. RCB's Marcus Stoinis can be a little expensive with the ball, but is explosive with the bat.
Navdeep Saini, Kagiso Rabada to headline bowling attack
The bowling department is set to have three men. It would be dominated by Kagiso Rabada, who is currently the Orange Cap holder. We back Amit Mishra to come good, as the match is being played on a sluggish home track. From RCB, Navdeep Saini is the ideal choice. He has been economical this term and can also pick up a couple of wickets.
AB the captain, Rabada his deputy
After a thorough analysis, we feel that AB de Villiers is the right man to lead, courtesy of his form. He is sure to earn extra points. Rabada gets the nod as the vice-captain of this XI. He has been Delhi's lethal weapon this term.
