If DC are chasing, Dhawan is a good option to make captain.

The seventh match in this IPL 2021 season will start at 7:30 PM IST between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC) in Mumbai. In this article, let us discuss the Season Long Fantasy League team setup for Match 7.
All the matches in Mumbai are turning out to be high-scoring matches. Scores over 200 seem to be quite common. With some of the big hitters in this match, this can very well be another high-scoring match. Rajasthan Royals are playing their next match in five days span and Delhi Capitals is playing their next match in four days span.
It will be difficult to carry the players from these two teams in our fantasy team, to their next match. Still, we can’t miss the players from these two teams on this high-scoring venue.
We currently have two players from RR for this match in our fantasy team. We will make two more transfers along with one uncapped transfer. It is not just RR, but also the fantasy teams are going to miss Ben Stokes, the first choice fantasy team captain.
Players available for the Current Match: Sanju Samson (RR), Chetan Sakariya (RR)
Number of Transfers: Two (+ One uncapped)
Number of transfers Remaining: 100

Virat Kohli (RCB), Harshal Patel (RCB): RCB are playing their next match in four days span, So we are transferring out these two RCB players.
Ishan Kishan (MI): We have to transfer one more player and we could see the only option in Ishan Kishan. Ishan Kishan is not keeping the gloves and coming in second down. Punjab Kings are playing their next matches two matches in four days span. So, we will be able to manage with KL Rahul as our fantasy team Wicket Keeper. Hence transferring out Ishan Kishan from our fantasy team.
Shikhar Dhawan (DC): Shikhar Dhawan was in great touch. His less risky batting approach could get good fantasy points.
Prithvi Shaw (DC)/Jos Buttler (RR): In the absence of Ben Stokes, it is not very clear who is going to open the RR batting. It is possible that Jos Buttler could open the batting and David Miller/Liam Livingstone can come in the middle order. If not, Liam Livingstone might open the innings and Jos Buttler could be pushed down the order. After the Toss, if we see any signs that Jos Buttler is going to open, then only we will take Jos Buttler into our fantasy team. If not, we will take Prithvi Shaw in the fantasy team.

Uncapped Transfer In:
Manan Vohra (RR): DC is filled with left-right hand player combinations in the top and middle order. So players like Rahul Tewatia will not get many overs to bowl. So we want to see if Manan Vohra could make some runs considering the pitch advantage.
Captain: Sanju Samson (If RR bats second) / Shikhar Dhawan (If DC bats second)
Vice Captain: Shikhar Dhawan (If DC bats second) / Sanju Samson (If RR bats second)
In Mumbai, the dew is a big factor helping the teams batting second. So, we want to keep our fantasy team captain from the team batting second.
Our Fantasy Team:
Sanju Samson (C), Shikhar Dhawan (VC), Manish Pandey, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, David Warner, Manan Vohra, Krunal Pandya, Varun Chakravarthy, Chetan Sakariya, T Natarajan
Prithvi Shaw’s aggressive batting approach often leads him to lose his wicket early. If DC bats first, below are good player options to consider replacing Prithvi Shaw.
Rishabh Pant (DC): Rishabh Pant is one good player for this match. He is in great form and is keeping the wickets as well. Our only concern for him is that he may come late in the batting order, to finish the matches, especially while batting second. If DC bats first, he will be a very good option to consider.
Marcus Stoinis (DC): Delhi will still be missing their prime bowler Anrich Nortje for this match. So, Stoinis will end up bowling a few overs. Same like Rishabh Pant, even Stoinis might be stuck to finisher role and come late in the batting order, while batting second. If DC bats first, he will be a good option to consider.
Note: There can be slight changes in the fantasy team based on the teams announced after the toss and any other news.
