DEL vs VID Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With Rishabh Pant out for Delhi for this match and most likely the entirety of the tournamnet, opener Anuj Rawat will be keeping gloves for the side today. And with the excellent batting conditions on display, the first 10 overs of the powerplay will allow him to regale us in a sortie of powerful hitting, seeing him get in vital points through boundaries.
A player akin to him is Vidharbha’s Jitesh Sharma, seeing us opt for their wicket-keeper as well for this encounter.
DEL vs VID Dream11 Batsmen
We’ll continue with the picks from the capital side with their batters being quissential to the side’s convincing wins last season. After the departure of Gautam Gambhir, captain Dhruv Shorey has been pivotal for the side, not just as a leader but in the batting order as well.
And he’s taken over the accountability of performing for his side on a consistent basis to sit in the annuls of bats in the marquee tournamnet, making him an instant pick for us. The side’s opener Hiten Dalal and middle-order bat, Himmat Singh come in as well, both players bestowed with an incredible skill set to send the bowlers to the cleaners.
Elsewhere, we have chosen Ganesh Satish and Sanjay Ramaswamy as our two picks from Vidarbha for this match.
DEL vs VID Dream11 All-Rounders
We are deciding to venture in with just the one all-rounder, Lalit Yadav from Delhi for this match. Rain played a big factor in us coming to this discussion with the all-rounders unlikely to get time out in the middle with the bat if it does rain, seeing Lalit’s escalated role in the bowling order our pick for this one.
DEL vs VID Dream11 Bowling Order
Vidharbha’s pacer Umesh Yadav will be taking over the new ball and bowling the death overs as well for his side, making him our selection for today’s match from the side along with Akshay Wakhare. Elsewhere from Delhi we have gotten in only the one player in the form of left arm pacer Kulwant Khejroliya given his ability to shape the ball away from the right handers.
