Top Picks for RR vs DC :
Top Picks – Batsmen
Shikhar Dhawan played an outstanding knock of 85 runs from only 54 deliveries in the match against Chennai Super Kings. It was seen coming, as in his last 3 matches, all of them being ODIs, he scored 160+ runs.
Prithvi Shaw took his Vijay Hazare Trophy form into the IPL, as he scored 72 runs from 38 deliveries against CSK. In his last 4 games, including List A games, he has scored two centuries and two half-centuries.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Marcus Stoinis had a poor game against CSK, but he was one of the Capitals’ most consistent players in the previous season. Stoinis also played a couple of good cameos and also scored a fabulous 78 in the T20I series against New Zealand.
Shivam Dube had a bad day at the office with the ball against Punjab, but he scored 23 runs from only 15 deliveries. If Rajasthan continues batting him up the order, we can see more good innings from his blade.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Despite having two mightily experienced pacers in Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma, Delhi trusted Avesh Khan to do the job will the ball in the last game, and boy did he perform. He ended up picking 2 wickets by conceding just 23 runs, which included the wicket of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Ravichandran Ashwin was taken for runs in the last game, but he still is a must pick for your fantasy teams. His form coming into the IPL was superb, as he bamboozled the English batsmen in the Test series.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Sanju Samson has now made a habit of starting his IPL campaigns with remarkable knocks, just like the one he played against PBKS. He scored 119 runs from 63 deliveries.
Rishabh Pant played a short cameo of 15 runs in his first IPL 2021 game, which was enough to ensure the run-chase remains smooth as butter for Delhi. In his previous two games, which were in the ODI series against England, he scored 150+ runs.
