  • Rs 60 - 10 spots (top 5 get 100)

DC vs RCB Dream11 Prediction: Base fantasy team safe + medium risk (irrespective of toss)

Spots left: 3

Highest ownerships outside the base team: Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Anrich Nortje, Josh Hazlewood, Harshal Patel, Kuldeep Yadav

Mitchell Marsh vs Manish Pandey

  • Mitchell Marsh scored 63 runs off 39 balls and also took 4 wickets in his last game. Marsh provides value with both bat and ball.

  • Manish Pandey hasn’t exactly set the IPL stage on fire, but he has played a few decent knocks in the tournament.

Anrich Nortje vs Josh Hazlewood

  • Anrich Nortje possesses a good record against the RHBs in IPL 2023. He will enjoy bowling to the RCB batters.

  • Josh Hazlewood bowled really well in the last game against LSG. The short balls have been effective in Delhi, as Mitchell Marsh showed in the previous game, and Hazlewood can exploit it.

Harshal Patel vs Kuldeep Yadav

  • Harshal Patel has bowled reasonably well in the past few matches. He bowls in the death overs, which increases the possibility of taking wickets.

  • Kuldeep Yadav might enjoy bowling to a side where the majority of the batters struggle against the slow bowlers. He has also been better against the RHBs this year.

  • Complete team with three of Kuldeep Yadav, Mitchell Marsh, Anrich Nortje and Josh Hazlewood.

  • Captaincy choices: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Axar Patel.
