DC vs RCB, Indian Premier League 2022, Match 27
Date and Time: 16th April 2022, 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
The pitch at the Wankhede Stadium is a decent one to bat on with ample help on offer for the bowlers. The pacers should get the ball to swing around in the powerplay phase, keeping the batters on their toes. As the match progresses, the pitch should slow down and offer some turn to the spinners. Wickets in hand will be key, with 160-170 being a good total at the venue.
Today’s DC vs RCB Dream11 match top picks
Rishabh Pant: Rishabh Pant has been decent with the bat, showing intent in the middle overs. The DC skipper has gotten a few starts, but has so far failed to convert them into big scores. But given his ability against spin, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Virat Kohli: We are yet to see the best of Virat Kohli in IPL 2022, with the former skipper unable to score a fifty in five outings so far. The right-hander has struggled to get going against pace despite looking good in patches. However, he remains one of the best batters in the world and can be backed to come up with a good performance against the Delhi Capitals.
Axar Patel: Axar Patel has blown hot and cold in IPL 2022. While Axar has excelled with the bat in the finisher's role, he is yet to pick up a wicket this season. However, the all-rounder is one of the best in the business and has a knack for taking wickets at crucial junctures, making him a good addition to your DC vs RCB Dream11 fantasy team.
Mohammed Siraj: Mohammed Siraj has been disappointing in IPL 2022, often proving to be expensive in death overs. But Siraj is a fine exponent of swing bowling and can more than hold his own at the backend of the innings. With the pacer due for a big performance, he is a must-have in your DC vs RCB Dream11 fantasy team.
