Top Picks for LSG vs DC Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Prithvi Shaw did fail to provide a fiery start to DC in the previous match. But, he showed a bit of his potential against MI in the opening game when he scored 38 runs off 24 deliveries which included 4 fours and 2 sixes.
Evin Lewis played a key role for LSG in the win against CSK. He scored 55 runs off just 23 deliveries and won the player of the match award. LSG won that game by 4 wickets and Lewis remained not-out.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Deepak Hooda has contributed with both the bat and the ball in the tournament. He already has scored 2 half-centuries in 3 matches. In the previous match against SRH, he scored 51 runs off 33 deliveries and helped LSG reach a total of 169 runs.
Jason Holder made his debut for LSG in the previous match against SRH. He faced 3 deliveries and hit 1 out of the park. With the ball, Holder picked up 3 wickets in 4 overs and gave away 34 runs.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Avesh Khan won the player of the match award in the last game against SRH. He dismissed both the openers in the powerplay overs and changed the course of the match by picking 2 more wickets in the 18th over including that of Nicholas Pooran. Avesh bowled his quota of 4 overs and gave away 24 runs.
Mustafizur Rahman made his debut for DC in the last game against GT. He opened the bowling for DC and went on to pick 3 wickets. Mustafizur gave away 23 runs in 4 overs.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Lokesh Rahul has not looked back since getting dismissed for a duck in the first game against GT. He has played a key role for LSG with the bat in the previous two matches. Against CSK, Rahul made 40 runs off 26 deliveries and followed it with a knock of 68 runs off 50 deliveries against SRH.
LSG vs DC Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for LSG vs DC Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ayush Badoni, Jason Holder (vc), Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Andrew Tye, Mustafizur Rahman, Anrich Nortje
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for LSG vs DC Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, David Warner, Evin Lewis, Rovman Powell, Ayush Badoni (c), Jason Holder, Lalit Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Avesh Khan (vc), Kuldeep Yadav
LSG vs DC Risky Captaincy Choices:
Krunal Pandya picked 2 important wickets of Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram in the previous game against SRH. He gave away just 27 runs in 4 overs. Pandya has performed decently with the ball but the same can’t be said regarding his batting performance. It might be a huge risk if you pick him to lead your fantasy team.
Rovman Powell is yet to unlock his true potential in the tournament. In the first game, he was dismissed for a duck while he made 20 runs off 12 deliveries in the second game. He is a risky candidate to be the captain of your fantasy team.
Player you should avoid:
Mandeep Singh has failed to impress in the 2 matches that he has played for DC. He is batting in the crucial position of number 3 and has failed to provide stability to the team’s batting unit. He is one player whom you can easily avoid for this game.
