Delhi Capitals will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 33 of the IPL 2021 on Wednesday. In their previous match, Delhi Capitals held their nerves in a super over contest against Sunrisers Hyderabad for the win. Shreyas Iyer, who missed the first leg of the IPL due to injury, is back in the team, but Rishabh Pant will continue his role as captain in the second leg as well. They currently hold the second spot in the standings with 12 points.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad had a lean patch in the first half of the IPL. They removed David Warner from the captaincy role, but even that decision did not favour them. They managed to win only one of their 7 matches in the first leg. They are currently sitting at the bottom of the table with only two points on their bank

It’s a good sporting wicket where quick bowlers will get maximum assistance from the surface in the powerplay. It’s all about keeping the wickets in the hand, as batting will become easier as the game progresses. Having said that, batting first is also a good option here.

Top Picks for DC vs SRH Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batsman
Shikhar Dhawan will be extremely disappointed not to find a place in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup squad. The opening batsman, affectionately known as ‘Gabbar’, has scored 380 runs in 8 matches so far in this IPL at an average of 54.28.
Kane Williamson is an all-format player and knows how to win matches for his side. He is calm and composed at the crease, which is his biggest strength. He mainly relies on his technique rather than going for fancy T20 shots.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Marcus Stoinis didn’t make a huge impact in the first leg of this IPL. The Australian all-rounder has scored 71 runs and has chipped in with 2 wickets. He will be expecting much improved performances in the second half.
At a cut-throat price of 8 Cr, Vijay Shankar will be a decent budget option. He has picked up 3 wickets and has scored 58 runs in this season so far.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Avesh Khan was highly impressive with his accurate bowling in the first half of the IPL. He has scalped 14 wickets in 8 matches, with the best figures of 3 for 32.
Whichever league he might be playing in, Rashid Khan always tends to fight for the leading wicket-taker award. He is highly deceptive, and picking him is one of the tougher tasks a batsman could face. Moreover, he can hit big sixes as well.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Rishabh Pant is a true game-changer. He is someone who can take the game away from the opposition within a span of a few overs. The Delhi Capitals skipper has mustered 213 runs in this year’s IPL at an average of 35.5 and a strike rate of 131.48.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for DC vs SRH Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Rishabh Pant, David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan (c), Kane Williamson (vc), Prithvi Shaw, Marcus Stoinis, Vijay Shankar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Kagiso Rabada, Rashid Khan
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for DC vs SRH Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, David Warner (c), Shreyas Iyer (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, Marcus Stoinis, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Rashid Khan, T Natarajan, Khaleel Ahmed
DC vs SRH Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
10 wickets and 17 runs
DC vs SRH Risky Captaincy Choices:
Shreyas Iyer is back after completely recovering from a shoulder injury. This will be his first match after a long gap, but we have seen plenty of excellent knocks from his bat in this competition. You can take a risk and pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
David Warner will be hungry for the runs. The former Orange Army skipper has scored 193 runs in 6 matches in this year’s IPL at an average of 32.16. He will be a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.
Player you should avoid:
Considering his decent international performances in recent times, it’s better to avoid Anrich Nortje while making your fantasy teams.
