Pitch Report:

There has been a massive change in the behaviour of the surface, as we witnessed a low-scoring encounter in the last match between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. The oddball is keeping low and spinners are getting some turn as well. Having said all this, it will be interesting which surface will be used for this match.

Top Picks for KKR vs DC Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­Batters

Rahul Tripathi is a much-improved cricketer in recent times, and the Indian selectors will be closely watching his progress. He is the leading run-scorer for Knight Riders in the ongoing IPL with 306 runs in 9 innings, at an average of 38.25.

Shreyas Iyer is back to his usual form after recovering from an injury. He returned with scores of 47* and 43 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals respectively.

Top Picks ­All-Rounders

Sunil Narine did really well in the death overs against Chennai Super Kings. Despite going for runs, he managed to pick up 3 wickets. He is a good pick for your fantasy teams.

Axar Patel didn’t get enough opportunities with the bat in this edition of the IPL. However, he is proving his worth with the ball, as he has scalped 9 wickets in 6 matches at an economy of 6.66.

Top Picks ­Bowlers

Varun Chakravarthy has hardly been expensive. Tamil Nadu’s mystery spinner is the go-to go bowler for skipper Eoin Morgan. He has scalped 11 wickets in 10 matches in this year’s IPL at an economy of 6.9.

Anrich Nortje has fierce pace, that is troubling the batters immensely. In 2 matches in this year’s IPL, he has scalped 4 wickets at an economy of 3.75.
