SRH vs DC Dream 11 team prediction: Dream 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips for SRH vs DC as The SportsRush helps you to form the best Dream 11 team.
The 30th match of the ongoing season of the IPL will take place at Hyderabad, between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals. Both the sides have had a mixed IPL season so far.
While Delhi Capitals, who made a considerably slow start, gained momentum in their last two games with convincing victories, SRH’s story this season has been quite the opposite. The Hyderabad franchise made a thumping start to the 12th season of the IPL, but their lack of depth in the batting order was exposed in the last few games.
As a result, SRH currently finds themselves at the sixth spot in the table. DC, meanwhile, have climbed up to the fourth position. As both the sides meet for the second time in this season, they’ll hope to push further to strengthen their claim for a top-4 finish.
SRH vs DC Dream 11 team Prediction
Wicket-keeper for SRH vs DC Dream 11
The wicket-keeper’s slot in the SRH vs DC Dream 11 team will be an intense battle between Jonny Bairstow and Rishabh Pant. Both the keepers have been in fine touch throughout the season.
It might look like a tough decision at first. However, Rishabh Pant’s reckless batting style is a huge drawback when we compare both the batsmen. Jonny Bairstow’s hitting has been clean, and he has scored runs at a higher pace than his opening partner, David Warner.
The fact that Rishabh Pant could give away his wicket rather cheaply, complimented by another fact that he comes at four in the batting order, tilts the bout in the favour of Jonny Bairstow.
Bowlers for SRH vs DC Dream 11
Usually, the first bowler that comes to mind when SRH plays is Rashid Khan. However, I’ve decided to keep him out of the team for this game, and there’s a valid reason for that.
In the past few games, while Khan has been quite economic, he has considerably failed to take wickets. Granted, he is playing his job efficiently for SRH, but his lack of wickets don’t help the Dream 11 team. Instead, Sandeep Sharma has been among the wickets, taking 8 in this season so far.
I’ve paired Sharma with Siddarth Kaul, who found his form in his last few games.
As with every game, I keep bowlers to a bare minimum because the points system is tilted towards the batsmen. Kagiso Rabada is the only bowler I choose from Delhi Capitals, which hardly comes as a surprise. The South African has been brilliant with the bowl so far, taking two wickets almost every game.

All-rounders for SRH vs DC Dream 11
Picking the all-rounders from SRH will be an advantage due to the obvious fact that the side is playing at home. Another reason is that they’re in good form at the moment.
Mohammad Nabi has taken 7 wickets in 4 games so far, and has come handy with the bat whenever required. The Afghan veteran has the strike rate of 133 with the bat this season, and so, should the situation come, he could also give you points with his batting.
Vijay Shankar has hardly bowled in this season so far, which is a shame. He plays a handy role with the bat, coming at three for SRH. Chris Morris is my third all-rounder in the team. The South African, like Nabi, has been brilliant with the bowl, taking 8 wickets in five matches.

Batsmen for SRH vs DC Dream 11
This is where I’ve placed my money on the Delhi Capitals’ batsmen. The only batsman I’ve picked from SRH is David Warner – and with his selection, I’ve all of the SRH’s top-3 in my team. The side’s middle and lower-middle order has been struggling of late, so it would be risky to put your confidence on those players.
Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw have been impressive in this season so far, with the former scoring 97* in his last game against KKR. Shaw, meanwhile, is known for his explosive game and could come handy in Hyderabad. Shreyas Iyer is my third batsman for the side. The captain led from the front in Delhi Capitals’ victory against RCB, scoring 67. He’s reliable with the bat.
Captain – David Warner
Vice-Captain – Shikhar Dhawan
