DC vs SRH Dream 11 Prediction: Dream 11 Fantasy Tips for DC vs SRH as The SportsRush helps you form the best possible Dream 11 Team.
DC return home after a horrendous outing in Mohali last time round, when their lower order imploded to hand the win on a silver platter to KXIP.
Shreyas Iyer addressed the fact that the DC batsmen needed to take more responsibility from here on and ensure that such a thing doesn’t happen in the matches to come.
SRH on the other hand are coming off an emphatic home victory against RCB, with both Bairstow and Warner firing on all cylinders and then Nabi bamboozling the RCB batsmen with his wiley off spinners.
SRH will be hoping for a win on the road, especially in Delhi where the pitch would suit their spinners. DC on the other hand will be wanting their young core to take more responsibility, especially Rishabh Pant, who has been guilty of throwing his wicket away when he could have taken his team home.

Let’s get to business now.
DC vs SRH Dream 11 Prediction
For the wicketkeeping slot, it is going to be straight shootout between Rishabh Pant and Jonny Bairstow. Going by current form, price and batting position, Bairstow seems like the better choice. Pant has been reckless in the last two innings, and with Bairstow scoring a wonderful 100 in the last game, one can expect him to go berserk in Delhi on Thursday.
Kagiso Rabada and Rashid Khan will be the first two bowlers that I bring into my team for this game. Both these bowlers have been the lynchpins for their teams this IPL, with Rabada displaying some scintillating death bowling skills against KKR the last time round at the Kotla and Rashid Khan waiting to use that sluggish surface to his benefit.
Rashid Khan hasn’t really set the IPL on fire with his bowling yet, but could use the slow, spinning Kotla track to his advantage on Thursday night.
Kagiso Rabada is sure to bowl at least two overs at the death and with the kind of form that he is in(picked up two wickets in the last game), one would be foolish to leave him out.
For my final bowling spot, I would be getting in Sandeep Sharma. He is my budget pick for this game, as I have to get in a bowler who is worth 8cr, and with the bowlers on display, Sandeep seems like the best option.
Sandeep had picked 3 wickets in the last game against RCB and looked to be in good rhythm. On a pitch where the batsmen would find it difficult to get him away, Sandeep could be your trump card.
Mohammad Nabi was the star of the SRH bowling performance in the last game, picking up 4 top order wickets. Again, the Kotla track could help him get some grip and turn. Moreover, DC have 3 left handers in their top 5, something that could aid Nabi in knocking them over. He can also come in handy with the bat at the death. Get him in.
Vijay Shankar should move a place up in the batting order after some doubts on Williamson’s fitness. He batted at number 3 in the last game as well and has contributed heavily for SRH at the top of the pile. Going by the form he is in, you ought to bring him in to your side at all costs.
For the final all-rounder spot, I would get in DC’s Chris Morris, who took 3 crucial wickets in the last game. Morris gets to bowl at least two overs at the death and will also be used by DC to do all the power hitting towards the end of their batting innings too. From all the all-rounders on display for Thursday’s game, Morris seems to be the best bet with respect to a secure fantasy return.
David Warner is the first batsmen that I would draft into my side for this game. He has scored two half-centuries and a century in his first 3 games and looks in ominous form. It would be foolish to leave him out, get him in.
I would be going in with 2 DC batsmen for this game. Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer would be those two batsmen. While Prithvi Shaw scored 99 in the match before the last one, I still feel, over the course of the season, Dhawan and Iyer would give better runs, owing to their safer style of play. Both Iyer and Dhawan take their time in the middle, and go into 5th gear only when their well set. That infuses more confidence in me as a Fantasy Manager.
For the final batting pick for this game, I have to go in with a batsman worth 8cr and from the choices that I have, Yusuf Pathan seems to be the best bet. Pathan has been entrusted with the aggressors role, coming in at 5 to tonk the ball and take the game away from the opposition. Thursday might just be the day when he ticks and tees off.
Captain: David Warner
Vice-Captain: Rashid Khan
Happy team picking.
