RR’s players have been impressive; the likes of Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal have shown an excellent performance in the previous match as Buttler slammed his second ton of the tournament while Chahal bagged a hattrick. The players will be brimming with optimism and will likely decide tomorrow’s game as well.

Must Picks

It’s obvious you will find Buttler here as he has been outrageous for RR in the batting unit, having accumulated second ton against KKR. He currently leads the line for the orange cap with the most runs. 

Yuzvendra Chahal is another deserving player in the fantasy team who is the favourite to win the purple cap with 17 wickets in the tournament, including a hattrick in his previous match. The right-handed spinner is dominating the headlines with his exemplary bowling.  

David Warner's return will give a massive boost to the DC batting unit as he has been the most consistent player in IPL. His batting prowess has helped his team to achieve glory. Hence he deserves to be in the fantasy team.

Prediction 

Wankhede Stadium is best for the batters as you can score runs with ease and RR has the sensational batters who can cause a lot of problems for DC bowlers. Regardless, if we see overall, RR has the most poised squad, and DC, who are currently plagued by covid cases, will need to punch above their weight against a star-studded RR squad. 

RR should be able to win this contest without any trouble.
