According to DC vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction for Today’s Match Fantasy Cricket, Delhi Capitals will take on Punjab Kings in the 11th match of the VIVO IPL, 2020-21 on Sunday, 18th April 2021, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Keep reading to find out about the VIVO IPL, 2020-21 11th Match DC vs PBKS Dream11 team today.

Punjab Kings are coming into this match after an embarrassing loss to Chennai Super Kings. Deepak Chahar ran through the top order of Punjab Kings and if not for the cameo from Shahrukh Khan, PBKS would have got out for an extremely low total. In return, their bowlers had no clue and CSK had their first win convincingly to move up in the points table.

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, came up with a forgettable performance against RR after dominating CSK in their first match. However, the team’s bowling is just too strong that they had managed to take the game closer. In the end, Chris Morris proved why he is just too expensive by playing an absolute blinder.

Pitch Report of Wankhede Stadium

Wankhede has assisted the batters more but in the last two games, the bowlers have dominated very well. Batting first looked like an uphill task and the team batting second has managed to win the match. While CSK had it easier, DC’s bowling attack kept the team in the hunt. 

Once again, toss will play a crucial and the teams will prefer chasing again. So far, 41 matches out of 78 fell in the hands of the teams that were chasing. In this tournament, the last two matches were won by the teams that were chasing.

Fantasy Cricket Expert Tips:

This will be an interesting contest as both PBKS has a good batting line-up while DC’s bowling is one of the strongest here. Apart from major players, Avesh Khan, Deepak Hooda and Shahrukh Khan are good picks here.

PBKS Squad

In the last match, the team went in with Riley Meredith who couldn’t find his form here. Thus, the team might look into alternative options, might opt for Henriques or Jordan.

DC vs PBKS Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain

KL Rahul will look to bounce back in this contest after missing out against Chennai Super Kings. He began the tournament well by smashing 91 from just 50 against Rajasthan Royals at this same venue and will be the player to watch out for once again. 

Shikhar Dhawan is yet another player who is just too good to be ignored here. In the first match, he smashed a brilliant 85 and has a strike rate of just over 145. He will be looking to bounce back as well after missing out against Rajasthan Royals. Also, in the last edition, Dhawan smashed a ton against the same opponent.

Here are a few picks for the Vice-captain in the Dream 11 team for DC vs PBKS clash

Mayank Agarwal, though, is looking completely out of form, one can back him here because of his record against Delhi Capitals. In the last outing against the same team, Agarwal top-scored with 89 runs from just 60 deliveries. 

Prithvi Shaw will be the other key player who can take the game away from his opponent. Shaw had a rare failure recently. Shaw has been doing extremely well this year and even in the first match, he had a half-century to his name. 

DC vs PBKS- Top picks by experts

Avesh Khan has been impressive in this tournament. He has opened the innings with the ball for the team and has managed to pick up early wickets. He so far has five wickets in the tournament with an economy rate of 6.87.

Arshdeep Singh is yet another youngster who has impressed everyone. He so far has 4 wickets and has given away just seven runs per over. Mind you, PBKS had a match where they gave away more than 200 runs. Still, the team found it difficult to take on him. 

Chris Woakes has contributed from both fronts and with the ball, he has set the tone for the match in multiple games. He has picked up 4 wickets and has an economy rate lesser than six.
