IPL 2021: 5 Fantasy Picks for DC vs RR clash in UAE, Playing11 and Live Streaming – September 25: It’s time for the first doubleheader in IPL 2021. The first of the two matches scheduled today will be played between Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals and Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi. Sitting atop the points table with seven wins in nine games, Delhi Capitals are one win away from securing a spot in the playoffs. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are sitting fifth in the table with four wins and four defeats in eight outings and require 3 wins out of their 6 remaining matches to qualify for the playoffs.
Here, we will look at key players who can be game-changer for their respective sides in the 36th match between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Five key players for IPL 2021: DC vs RR 36th Match –
Shikhar Dhawan – Averaging 54.28 in IPL 2021 phase 1, Shikhar Dhawan continued his fine form in the opening game of the second phase of the tournament against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Shikhar Dhawan looked well in touch in his 42 runs knock against Hyderabad and is currently the Orange Cap holder, scoring 422 runs in 9 innings at a strike rate of 127.24, including three fifties.
Sanju Samson – With a lot of key players unavailable, Rajasthan Royals are now solely dependent upon the Indian/domestic players. RR Skipper Sanju Samson is the leading run-scorer for the side in the ongoing season. In 8 innings, he has amassed 281 runs at an average of 40.14 and will be crucial in putting runs on the board against Delhi Capitals.
Prithvi Shaw – Shikhar Dhawan’s partner in crime, Prithvi Shaw couldn’t score big in the opening game but looked well in rhythm in his short innings of 11 off 8, in which he slammed two eye-catching boundaries. He is the second leading run-scorer for Delhi Capitals, amassing 319 runs at an average of 35.44 at a strike rate of 165.28 in 9 innings so far.
Chris Morris – The key all-rounder from Rajasthan Royals looked rusty against Punjab Kings in the opening game. But, is expected to be a key player against Delhi Capitals. While Morris is the leading wicket-taker for Rajasthan in the ongoing season, he had a decent outing when both teams met earlier in the India leg of the tournament, picking up a wicket and scoring 36 off 18 deliveries.
Avesh Khan – With 14 scalps in 9 innings, Avesh Khan is the leading wicket-taker for Delhi capitals in the ongoing edition and also the second in the race of Purple Cap. He failed to pick up a wicket in the opening game against Sunrisers Hyderabad but a lot of Delhi Capitals’ success in the UAE will be relying on his form.
