The 13th match of IPL 2021 between defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will be played in Chennai today. Both teams have won their previous matches. Hence, none of DC captain Rishabh Pant or MI captain Rohit Sharma would like to change their winner playing-11.
In such a situation, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant can get more points in batting for Fantasy-11. In bowling, Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada will prove to be key players. The match will take place on the turning pitch of Chennai, where the spinners will be helped. In such a situation, Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya can be retained.
Among the wicketkeepers, Delhi captain Rishabh Pant and Mumbai opener Quinton Dickock can get more points. Pant has scored 81 runs in 3 matches so far in the season. At the same time, Dickock has scored 42 runs in 2 matches. In wicketkeeping, Dickock has taken 2 and Pant has hunted 1.
It might be a sensible decision to keep Delhi opener Shikhar Dhawan in the batting lineup. So far Dhawan has kept the orange cap with him. Apart from these, apart from Mumbai captain and opener Rohit Sharma, Prithvi Shaw is also in form. Rohit has a good record against Delhi.
Although both are one to one all-rounders in the team, but in fantasy-11, they can take on Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis and Chris Woakes. Krunal is a spinner who can prove to be a wicket-taker on the turning track in Chennai. Vox is also doing well in bowling. He has taken 5 wickets in 3 matches. They are also in form in batting. At the same time, Stoinis has won Delhi in the last match against Punjab. He had scored 27 not out. However, Captain Pant did not bowl him.
The bowling options in the match are also very good in both the teams. Spinner Rahul Chahar can get a lot more points on the turning track if form and pitch are seen. He is second in the Purple Cap race with 7 wickets. At the same time, fast bowlers Jaspreet Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada can also prove to be wicket-takers. Both bowlers have taken 3-3 wickets so far. Bumrah has a great performance against Delhi.
The Chennai pitch has always been helpful to the spinners. However, the previous match was high scoring here. RCB set a target of 205 against KKR here. In this, Glenn Maxwell scored 78 and AB de Villiers scored 76 runs. In response, the KKR team was reduced to 166 runs. It is difficult to bat later on the Chennai pitch. There have been 6 matches so far this season, in which only the team batting 5 times has won.
Note: Suggestions have been made based on recent records and prospects. In the match, these assessments can be right and wrong. While choosing the team, keep in mind the risks associated with fantasy league.
