The eliminator will be played out at Visakhapatnam between Delhi and Hyderabad, both having won a game each against each other earlier in the season, on Wednesday. Delhi were extremely unlucky to not seal one of the top two spots and, on the other hand, Hyderabad were lucky to qualify for the playoffs despite losing 8 out of their 14 league games. The road to the finals is a long way ahead and both teams will have to play out of their skins to reach that far.

The bulk of Delhi’s scoring has been done by Pant, Iyer and Dhawan and it will be wise to have them in your fantasy teams. Hyderabad’s Manish Pandey has been in blazing form and a must-have in a fantasy team. There would be plenty of runs on offer on this pitch but might also provide assistance to the spinners which makes Rashid Khan a hot property. At this stage, Delhi are far ahead from Hyderabad both on paper and on current form. The pressure of a knockout game will be telling.

Head to Head: Last 5 games

Hyderabad: 3

Delhi: 2

Likely XIs


Wicket-Keeper: Wriddhiman Saha

Batsmen: Kane Williamson (C), Martin Guptill, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan

All-Rounders: Vijay Shankar, Mohammed Nabi

Bowlers: Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Basil Thampi


Wicket-Keeper: Rishabh Pant

Batsmen: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(C), Colin Ingram

All-Rounders: Sherfane Rutherford, Axar Patel

Bowlers: Keemo Paul, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult

Dotball Prediction:

Dotball team for Head to Head/Small Contests:

Wicket-Keeper: Rishabh Pant

Batsmen: Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan (C), Martin Guptill, Shreyas Iyer

All-Rounders: Vijay Shankar, Sherfane Rutherford

Bowlers: Trent Boult, Khaleel Ahmed, Rashid Khan (VC), Amit Mishra

Captain and Vice-Captain choices:

Captain: After a disastrous start to the season, Dhawan found his range mid-season and his return to form coincided with Delhi’s winning run. In 14 games, the opener has managed to tally 486 runs at 37.38 besides collecting 5 fifties. With the Hyderabad pace attack lacking experience, Dhawan will look to feast on them and get his team off to a flying start.

Vice-Captain: Rashid has been economical as ever barring a couple of games. He loves the big stage and will be keen to extract whatever he can from the conditions. His battle against Pant will surely keep everyone interested.

Fantasy Tips

Barring Dhoni’s assault a few days ago, Boult has kept it tight in this edition of the IPL and has lent experience to the bowling unit after the Kagiso Rabada jolt. He would know a thing or two about Hyderabad’s opener Martin Guptill.

Safe Captain Choices:

Rashid Khan

Amit Mishra

Khaleel Ahmed

Risky Captain Choices:

Keemo Paul

Vijay Shankar

Axar Patel

Dotball Team for Large/Grand Contests:

Wicket-Keeper: Wriddhiman Saha

Batsmen: Manish Pandey (C), Yusuf Pathan, Prithvi Shaw

All-Rounders: Mohammed Nabi, Vijay Shankar, Axar Patel

Bowlers: Keemo Paul, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma (VC), Trent Boult

Captain and Vice-Captain choices:

Captain: Having registered a solitary failure in his previous 5 innings, Manish Pandey is primed to make an impact in this crucial encounter. On his own, he has lifted Hyderabad’s middle-order from the doldrums and contributed in each of his outings after returning to the XI. He would be eyeing another big knock to pull his side through.

Vice-Captain: Ishant’s returns this season are markedly different to his previous performances. He has been impressive and has bowled in the right channels, often bowling the majority of his quota of overs in the Powerplay. With Hyderabad missing Warner and Bairstow, Ishant will look to blow away the second string top-order.

Fantasy Tips

The stage is set for Prithvi Shaw to make an impact at the big stage. He has been struggling but has played well in patches. With Hyderabad’s pace attack leaking runs with the new ball, Shaw looks likely to take advantage.

Dream 11 Prediction

Suggested Playing XI No. 1 for Head to Head/Small Leagues

Wicket-keeper – Rishabh Pant

Batsmen – Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey (VC), Martin Guptill

All-Rounders – Axar Patel, Mohammad Nabi

Bowlers – Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Basil Thampi, Khaleel Ahmed

Fantasy Tips

Having dismissed Pant earlier in the season, Nabi will play a pivotal role against Delhi with his fast off-spinners. He can handle the bat down the order which is a bonus from a fantasy team point of view.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Grand/ Mega Leagues:

Wicket-keeper – Wriddhiman Saha

Batsmen – Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw (VC), Kane Williamson (C)

All-Rounders – Axar Patel, Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar

Bowlers – Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult, Rashid Khan


Fantasy Tips

Axar Patel has been accurate and has bowled with discipline this season. He is no mug with the bat and could provide valuable points for users.
