Preview & Prediction: Match 47 (DC vs SRH)

SRH needs to win this (in fact all the remaining games) to present contention in the playoffs spot while DC will be looking to duck 3rd defeat in a row. DC will start favorites for a far superior combination and run in the tournament.


Dubai: Pacers and spinners have similar SR, have a mix of both in the fantasy XI. The pitch should slow down significantly in the second innings and teams winning the toss should bat first. 

Probable XI
SRH: Bairstow, Warner, Garg, Manish, Samad, Shankar, Rashid, Natarajan, Sandeep, Holder/Kane
If Kane is fit, he should walk right into the squad considering batting woes.

DC: Rahane/Shaw, Dhawan, Iyer, Pant, Hetmyer, Stoinis, Ashwin, Axar, Rabada, Nortje, Deshpande
Shaw might make a comeback against this modest bowling attack.


Head to Head
SRH are way ahead with 10-6

SRH have won this season's first game but had lost 2/3 last season.

Fantasy Team
-Pant's exclusion from Aus tour in the white-ball squad might break the shackles he has been playing with all this season. In any case, Rabada/Nortje should feed him catches.
-Birthday boys haven't done well this IPL including Hardik and Sundar. Also, Warner hasn't been at his best vs express pace this season and most likely to fall early to Rabada or Nortje. Feel free to swap Dhawan for him if it looks too risky.
-Shankar is another good candidate for VC/C. Looked sharp with the ball in the last game and has gotten runs lately.


HTH Records
Dhawan is the leading scorer while Bairstow, Kane and Pant have excellent numbers.
