The stadium has hosted plenty of Ranji Trophy games. The surface is suited to bowlers, so batters will need to bide their time on it. They will also have to time their shots well to find gaps in the field. Bowling first should be a good option for both camps.
Today’s DEL vs UT Dream11 match top picks
Anuj Rawat could prove to be a valuable wicketkeeper-batter for your fantasy side. He’s safe behind the stumps, and can also score key runs.
Jay Bista is the leading man with the bat for Uttarakhand. He was terrific for them last year, and scored 217 runs at an average of 54.25. He also scored two half-centuries.
Nitish Rana has plenty of experience in the shortest format of the game. He played a key role with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) who reached the final of IPL 2021. Rana was the top-scorer for Delhi in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy last year, where he amassed 183 runs in five matches, and also picked up two wickets. He should be the first choice for captaincy in your Dream11 Fantasy side.
Meanwhile, Lalit Yadav is a well-rounded player who contributes well in all three departments. Last season, he collected 152 runs for Delhi, and also picked up seven wickets at an economy rate of 6.6.
Navdeep Saini has plenty of experience playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and India in T20 matches. He will hope to use that experience in this tournament. His pace and ability to hit the deck hard makes him a handful in every phase of the innings.
