DD vs KKR: Here's your guide to pick Dream XI
Delhi Daredevils host Kolkata Knight Riders at the Feroz Shah Kotla in match number 26 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. DD have been struggling and need to quickly regroup under new skipper Shreyas Iyer. KKR, meanwhile, would want to bounce back from a defeat against KXIP. So who are the players you are rooting for? Here we guide you with the same.
Five-man batting to go forward with
Runs could be in store at the Kotla and that's where batsmen come into play. In-form Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa are our two batsmen to lead the batting. Gautam Gambhir may not have been amongst the runs, but giving up captaincy could see him breathe better. Young and energetic Prithvi Shaw comes in the crucial middle-order, besides Dinesh Karthik as the wicket-keeper batsman.
Sunil Narine the pick as skipper
West Indian all-rounder Sunil Narine is our choice as the team's skipper. The player can be ominous with the bat and his wicket-taking abilities ensure that you will score maximum points. DD's Glenn Maxwell could be given the nod as vice-captain. Maxi can take the game away and a special inning is due. The third all-rounder is the big-hitting West Indian Andre Russell.
Kuldeep Yadav leads a three-man bowling show
KKR wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav is our choice as the leading bowler in the side. He has been pivotal for KKR and has six wickets to his name so far. Alongside Kuldeep, fellow KKR spinner Piyush Chawla gets the nod. Chawla can get you wickets and has experience aplenty. DD left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem fills up the final spot in the playing XI.
