Young speedster Avesh Khan is looking like a prime contender for the purple cap.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s juggernaut finally came to a halt in their last game against Chennai Super Kings. While Virat Kohli’s men are still a part of the top three, what will bother him and the Bangalore team management is the manner in which they lost their last game.
Chasing a target of 192, all RCB could muster up was 122, as a fight was missing from them. It was not missing in Delhi’s last game, as Rishabh Pant’s boys fought bravely to secure a win in the Super Over against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both teams might have won the same number of games, but momentum is certainly in the Capitals’ favour.

Top Picks for DC vs RCB Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batsmen
Shikhar Dhawan has scored 40+ runs on three occasions in this season, which includes two half-centuries as well. He has scored over 25 runs in all of his knocks, barring one.
Virat Kohli had a poor outing against Chennai Super Kings, but he has scored over 30 runs in three of the five matches he has played.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Axar Patel was Delhi’s hero in his very first game of IPL 2021. He picked up 2 wickets by conceding only 26 runs and bowled superbly in the Super Over.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Harshal Patel might have been at the receiving end of Ravindra Jadeja’s carnage in the last match, but he also picked up 3 wickets. What really sets him apart is that he has picked up at least 2 wickets in all of his games of IPL 2021 so far.
Young speedster Avesh Khan is looking like a prime contender for the purple cap. He added three more to his wickets tally in the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
AB de Villiers was dismissed for just 4 runs in the last game, but the delivery that got him out would have dismissed most of the world’s most renowned batsmen. Having said that, de Villiers also has played two match-winning knocks already, against Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Thanks to a very formidable top-order, Rishabh Pant hasn’t had to do much with the bat in this season. But when it mattered, he scored a crucial 37 in the last game.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for DC vs RCB Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
AB de Villiers, Rishabh Pant, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (VC), Shikhar Dhawan (C), Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Avesh Khan, Kyle Jamieson, Mohammed Siraj

AB de Villiers (C), Devdutt Padikkal, Glenn Maxwell (VC), Steve Smith, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra
DC vs RCB Risky Captaincy Picks:
Glenn Maxwell is one of the few RCB batsmen who showed a glimpse of a fight in their last game, as he scored 22 runs from 15 deliveries. He has scored two half-centuries in this competition.
Devdutt Padikkal has looked in ominous touch since the last two games. He was RCB’s highest run-scorer against Chennai Super Kings, and scored a fantastic century against Rajasthan Royals.
Player you should avoid:
Daniel Christian is batting way down the order to make any real difference with the bat, while he is not getting many opportunities with the ball as well. It is better not to pick him for this game.
