Match 25 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will feature Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, on Thursday, April 29. KKR finally reversed their four-match losing streak against Punjab Kings, while Delhi Capitals are heading to this contest off an agonising one-run defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Team News

Ishant Sharma’s return has added that extra zing to the Delhi pace department. Anrich Nortje, meanwhile, has to wait for his chance. DC may also play the more aggressive Sam Billings ahead of Steven Smith at No. 3.

KKR are likely to go unchanged. Shubman Gill’s form has been a major concern for KKR. Along with Nitish Rana, Gill has failed to provide them with a convincing start. They have got an enforcer in the form of Rahul Tripathi. He combined with Eoin Morgan in the last game to guide KKR to the convincing victory.

Fantasy Tips

  • Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan are in solid form. Both of them relish pace, and would love to take on the likes of Pat Cummins and Prasidh Krishna.
  • Andre Russell and Marcus Stoinis can be relied upon as the all-rounder for the fantasy team. Axar Patel has impressed in the last outing and going for three all-rounders is not a bad idea.
  • Among wicket-keepers, Rishabh Pant should be picked ahead of Dinesh Karthik as the former is likely to yield better returns.

Probable XI

Delhi Capitals: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steven Smith, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Avesh Khan

Kolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna

Fantasy XI

Rishabh Pant (vc), Nitish Rana, Shikhar Dhawan (c), Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Andre Russell, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy
