Dream 11 Prediction
Captain – Ruturaj Gaikwad
Voice-captain- Avesh Khan
Wicketkeeper (Rishabh Pant)
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant is the first choice as a wicketkeeper-batsman who has the ability to change the match with the bat anytime.
Batsmen (Shreyas Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Shikhar Dhawan)
Ruturaj Gaikwad crossed the 500-run mark in the season with a century in the last match. His opening partner Faf du Plessis is also in the race for the Orange Cap and it will be difficult to keep him out. Shreyas Iyer has been consistently scoring runs in the middle order, including the match-winning innings against Mumbai Indians. Shikhar Dhawan was also seen in good form in the last match.
All-rounders (Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel)
Ravindra Jadeja has been in terrific form this season and is doing amazing with both bat and ball while Axar Patel is looking dangerous with the bowling.
Bowlers (Kagiso Rabada, Enrique Norje, Avesh Khan, Deepak Chahar)
This season the trio of DC bowlers has been very impressive as they have been able to consistently trouble the batsmen with their pace. Deepak Chahar of Chennai can also be dangerous in this match.

Dubai’s pitch is getting slower day by day and chasing any target above 160 will not be easy. Bowlers with speed variation often perform better in such conditions.
The temperature is expected to hover around 28-30 degrees Celsius during the evening game, which can give a feeling of humidity to the players on the field.
