It is advisable to pick more spinners in one of your fantasy teams.


Delhi Capitals will be up against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2nd Qualifier of the IPL 2021 on Wednesday. Delhi Capitals lost Qualifier 1 by a close contest against Chennai Super Kings by 4 wickets and now it’s time for them to make use of the one more opportunity they are receiving since they finished at the top of the table. They were very competitive throughout Qualifier 1 and couldn’t able to hold their nerves against one of the greatest finishers MS Dhoni. Will they reach the finals for the 2nd time in a row we need to wait and watch.

Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, stormed into Qualifier 2 by beating RCB in the Eliminator by 4 wickets in the final over of the match. Special thanks to Sunil Narine who picked up 4 wickets initially and later played a handy cameo with the bat. Their spinners are doing a commendable job in this tournament and hardly went for runs. Despite his poor run of form with the bat, Eoin Morgan has led the side really well.

DC vs KKR Top Picks for DC vs KKR Dream11 Match:

The surface here at Sharjah will be ideal for Axar Patel as the ball is getting plenty of turn. He has scalped 15 wickets in 11 matches in this edition at an economy of 6.52 and even scored 36 runs with the bat.

Sunil Narine deserved the player of the match award for his impeccable all-round performances against RCB in the Eliminator. He picked up 4 crucial wickets at an economy of 5.25 and later played a quickfire 26 runs from 15 balls.

Top Picks ­Bowlers

Anrich Nortje has been lethal with the ball and has troubled the batters in this IPL. In 7 matches so far, he has scalped 10 wickets at an impressive economy of 5.92.

Varun Chakravarthy has been pretty consistent throughout this IPL. He hardly bowls a bad delivery and is one of the most trusted bowlers by skipper Eoin Morgan. He anticipates the batter’s move well which makes him one of the successful bowlers in this format of the game.

Top Picks ­Wicketkeepers

Rishabh Pant is the first choice wicketkeeping option for your fantasy teams. His knock of 51* runs from 35 balls provided Delhi Capitals to put up a competitive score against CSK in Qualifier 1. Overall, in this edition, he has scored 413 runs at an average of 37.54.
