Preview 

Wednesday night is set to see a massive game between two explosive teams. The cricket fans of Visakhapatnam will be seeing Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals take on Kolkata Knight Riders led by Shreyas Iyer. 

Delhi Capitals (DC) began with two losses in two games before rebounding with a win against Chennai Super Kings. It was a huge win for Delhi as they batted and bowled well by 20 runs against the current IPL title winners. 

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are so unbeaten in the league and are in the second spot in the table. The two-time IPL winners have shown their explosive batting talents during the massive win against RCB in their last game.

Top players for DC vs KKR Dream 11 Match 

Top Players – Delhi Capitals   

David Warner – The Australian opener has been in good form with the bat. The veteran batter has been the only DC player who was a threat in the first two matches of IPL 2024. His timely fifty against CSK yet again proves why he is a dangerous player for his side. 

Rishabh Pant – After an unimpressive start to the season, Rishabh Pant scored his first IPL 50 of the season. The 26-year-old looked assured and brought out the big hits when he wanted to push his team to a huge total. 

Top Players – Kolkata Knight Riders

Sunil Narine – a West Indian all-rounder took the RCB bowlers to the cleaners with his amazing batting. KKR’s veteran star will not only be a handful with the bat but also with his mystery bowling. 

Andre Russell – Yet another West Indian star who has shown his old self with the bat and ball. Andre Russell will be a key player for KKR and he will find Vizag a great venue to show the fans his big hits. 

DC vs KKR Must Picks for Dream 11 Cricket 

Khaleel Ahmed – Discarded Indian pace bowler Khaleel Ahmed has been the biggest threat with the ball for DC this year. The 26-year-old has been bowling with pace and firing and getting early wickets with the ball. 

Rinku Singh – Indian batting sensation Rinku Singh is looking to explode with the bat. The left-handed batter hasn’t got much chance to impress with the bat. Rinku Singh will be hungry to score runs and make a mark during IPL 2024. 

Suggested playing XI No.1 for DC vs KKR Dream11 Cricket Fantasy 

R Pant, P Salt, D Warner (C), R Singh, V Iyer, P Shaw, A. Russell (C), A Patel, S Narine, K Ahmed, and H Rana

Suggested playing XI No.2 for DC vs KKR Dream11 Cricket Fantasy 

R Pant (C), D Warner, R Singh, V Iyer, P Shaw, T Stubbs, A. Russell, A Patel, S Narine(VC), K Ahmed, and H Rana

DC vs KKR Risky Captaincy Choices 

Mitchell Marsh – Australian star Mitchell Marsh hasn’t been in the greatest of forms in recent times. The class the 32-year-old has is unquestionable and it is just a matter of time before he finds his best form. The inconsistency though could prove to be dangerous for Delhi Capitals. 

Shreyas Iyer – The last few months haven’t been the greatest for KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer. With the Indian team set to be selected for the T20I World Cup, the 29-year-old will want to find his form again. 

Players you should avoid 

Prithvi Shaw – 24-year-old Prithvi Shaw has just made his comeback to IPL cricket. His 43 against CSK was filled with delightful shots and some meaty blows against the spinners. The biggest problem for Prithvi Shaw has been his inconsistency with the bat. If Shaw wants to make a comeback to the Indian side he needs to start scoring runs regularly. 

Mitchell Starc – Australian speedster Mitchell Starc has struggled with the bat and is yet to take a wicket. It seems the 34-year-old has been struggling to find his best form with the bat and has lost his way. The Aussie is a class performer and needs just one spell to find his way again.
