Dream11 Prediction: DC vs RCB Team Best Players to Pick for Today’s IPL T20 Match between Capitals and Challengers at 4PM

Dream 11 Tips and Predictions

The Delhi capitals  face Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 46 of the IPL today and while one team is within striking distance of securing a playoff berth, for the other, the agenda is to stay alive in contention for it.

DC captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and elected to bat first. Moeen Ali has gone back home and in comes Shivam Dube. Tim Southee also misses out, so does Akshdeep Nath. Heinrich Klassen and Gurkeerat Singh Mann get a game for RCB. For Delhi, Sandeep Lamichanne in for Chris Morris

DC vs RCB PREDICTION: While DC are almost certain to make it to the playoffs, unless a chaotic last three games, and the other permutations and combinations spoil the party, this game is yet another must-win game for Kohli and Co. as they aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive

So which team will gain in tonight’s game? Will RCB add DC in their list of franchises whose party they’ve spoiled or will Shreyas Iyer-led DC improve their record at the Kotla and become the second team after CSK to make it to the final four?

The last time the two teams squared off, on April 7, the Capitals won by four wickets at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

My Dream XI Team

1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 Virat Kohli, 3 AB de Villiers, 4 Rishabh Pant, 5 Marcus Stoinis, 6 Sandeep Lamichhane, 7 Colin Ingram, 8 Washington Sundar, 9 Kagiso Rabada, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal 11 Navdeep Saini

Match 46 of IPL 2019 is between Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore is at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi.

The Shreyas Iyer-led side is coming into this game on the back of two wins – against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Virat Kohli’s RCB, meanwhile, will be chasing their fourth successive win, having beaten KXIP, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their previous three games.

Delhi Capitals

While DC were pushed on the backfoot in a few games this season, they have found a different set of match-winners. The latest is Rishabh Pant. Although he had a quiet tournament following his unbeaten 78-run blitz against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the opening game, he made a return to form, once again scoring an unbeaten 78, powering DC to win in their previous game against RR.

Playing XI: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Colin Ingram, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma

Expected changes: 0

Royal Challengers Bangalore

While Dale Steyn’s injury and subsequent return to South Africa is big blow for RCB, the likes of Umesh Yadav and Navdeep Saini shoulder the responsibility to guide RCB to a win in the previous game against KXIP. Although Kohli did not score heavily, AB de Villiers and Marcus Stoinis turned up big time. The two alongside, Kohli and Parthiv will be crucial as RCB seek fourth win a row.

Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Marcus Stoinis, Heinrich Klaasen, Shivam Dube, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
