IPL 2022, Match 41: Fantasy Cricket Tips For Dc vs KKR

Fantasy Cricket Tips For Dc vs KKR: For match 41 of IPL 2022, two teams in the bottom half of the points table, Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders, will meet on Thursday evening at the Wankhede as both look for two crucial points.

Rishabh Pant’s team suffered a close 15-run loss to Rajasthan Royals at this venue and will be looking to bounce back. They have been inconsistent with the ball this season, but have 3 wins in 7 matches.

Shreyas Iyer’s side are on a slide down: after winning three of their first four games, they have lost their last four. Barring the form of Sunil Narine, Tim Southee and Andre Russell, KKR have a lot of problems to solve, not least their opening combination – they have tried four different opening combinations in their last four games.

Here, we bring you the best fantasy cricket tips for this exciting contest:

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

After a few par totals at the start of the season, Wankhede is now producing the high-scoring games it’s known for – Gujarat chasing down 196 against SRH recently. Again, the pacers are expected to take more wickets than the spinners.

Delhi Capitals

If Mitchell Marsh and Anrich Nortje are declared fit, they may come in for Sarfaraz Khan and Mustafizur Rahman. Rest DC are unlikely to make more than these couple of changes.

DC predicted XI: Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh/Sarfaraz Khan, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman/Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed

Kolkata Knight Riders

Aaron Finch and Pat Cummins missed KKR’s last game due to niggles. Should Finch be fit, he is likely to replace Sam Billings but that would mean a return for wicket-keeper Sheldon Jackson for either Rinku Singh, who was impressive in the last match, or KKR may drop the struggling Venkatesh Iyer.

Cummins, however, may not return to the eleven as he’d been expensive in the death while Tim Southee has been terrific in his opportunities.

KKR predicted XI: Sunil Narine, Sam Billings/Aaron Finch, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Sheldon Jackson/Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy

Fantasy cricket tips: Prithvi Shaw has smashed five fifties in seven innings against KKR and has been in good touch giving rapid starts along with Warner. Umesh Yadav has dismissed David Warner four times in 55 balls while Chakravarthy has accounted for Prithvi Shaw twice in 22 balls – they could be seen bowling in the powerplay. Umesh has taken 6 wickets in 2 games at the Wankhede this season.

Andre Russell is a safe C or VC option as he’s bowling in the death overs and with KKR’s fragile batting, he’s getting regular chances to bat. Spinners may not get much assistance at this venue. Rishabh Pant averages 47, striking at 182 at the Wankhede in 8 matches.

Based on the above fantasy cricket tips, here is the best XI for the DC-KKR match on Dream XI:

Wicket-keeper: Rishabh Pant

Batsman: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer

All-rounder: Andre Russell (C), Sunil Narine, Lalit Yadav

Bowler: Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee (VC), Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed

If they play, you can take Mitchell Marsh or Anrich Nortje instead of Khaleel.
