Top Picks for DC vs RCB MyTeam11 Contest:
Kagiso Rabada: Kagiso Rabada has been in sensational form in the tournament. However, his form has dipped as of late which has also coincided with Delhi’s losses. From being wicketless since 2017, Rabada has now gone two games without a wicket. Despite that, he’s still the joint holder of the Purple Cap along with Bumrah and would like redemption.
Shikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan became the first batsman to score back-to-back IPL centuries. He’s second in the list of Orange Cap with 471 runs from 13 games and has a strike rate of 146.72!
Virat Kohli: Virat has scored 431 runs from 13 innings in the tournament. However, he hasn’t been able to influence games as much as he’d have liked, especially in the recent few matches.
Devdutt Padikkal: Devdutt Padikkal has been a great revelation of RCB’s season so far. The left-hander has looked solid and graceful at the top and has scored 422 runs at an average of 32.46
Captain Picks for DC vs RCB MyTeam11 Contest:
