DC vs KKR Dream11 Team News:
- Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan will open the innings. With Iyer at number three.
- Hetmyer’s form is a concern for the team. But he showed promise in the last innings. So he will be backed by the team management. Pant and Stonis will be the finishers.
- R Ashwin will continue to miss the action and Amit Mishra will take his place.
- Nortje, Rabada, and Ishant will handle the pace bowling department.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
- The Sunil Narine as an opener strategy hasn’t worked but the team won’t change the combination yet.
- The batting positions of D Karthik, E Morgan, and A Russell can be swapped again. Morgan showed calmness while finishing innings last time so KKR could again send Russell a little early with Morgan coming after him.
- The strategy of playing six bowlers comes with big risks and sacrifices. But it has worked for KKR so they will continue with it.

Captain Pick for DC vs KKR Dream11 Team
Option 1: S Narine

Option 2: K Rabada
The Delhi quick bowler is in terrific form and has made a unique record of picking at least 2 wickets in a game for 10 consecutive games. He will fancy his chances against KKR’s line-up. He has seven wickets in three games in this IPL.
Option 1: S Gill
The KKR opener is in prime form and a must-have batsman in your team. He has scores of 47 and 70 not out in the last two innings. So he will be a big factor.
Option 2: A Russell
With KKR using six bowlers, Russell may not be needed to roll his arm but his batting is still a big asset. And KKR now is pushing him up the order. So he has more chances to make an impact.
