Match Prediction

3 players you can exclude from your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Shikhar Dhawan (10 credits)
In the last match against Chennai Super Kings, Shikhar Dhawan showed decent form with a 27 ball 35. However, he hasn’t looked his fluent best. He could also not fit in with his credit requirement when you go to make your team for this match. This match has a lot of brilliant batsmen playing who are in greater form or have other things going for them and it may be more advantageous to choose them over Shikhar Dhawan. This decision is not as much due to the poor form of the player, but because others are a better prospect. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (9 credits)
So far, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has looked very rusty in the IPL. While he performed well in the first match against Mumbai Indians, but during the match against Kolkata Knight Riders, he went for 29 in 3 overs without picking up a wicket. He didn’t look threatening. He bowled with middling pace without really challenging the batsmen. He also doesn’t have good memories playing in Delhi Capitals as Rishabh Pant took him to the cleaners in 2018. In place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, you can opt for other bowlers who are in good form. 

Wriddhiman Saha (8 credits)

Wriddhiman Saha is a  player you can certainly keep out of your team. He participated in the last match and appeared badly out of touch. He managed to score a painstaking 30 out of 31 balls and sucked all the momentum out of the batting of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Wriddhiman Saha has not been a regular part of playing XIs of IPL franchises for quite a few seasons now. He is primarily a test batsman and does not have the capacity to really accelerate especially in the middle overs. The experienced Wriddhiman  Saha can be safely left out from your Dream11 team.

3 players you must include in your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

David Warner (10.5 credits)
The sharp opening batsman didn’t have the impact that he would have liked until now. While he was unfortunately run out at the non-striker’s’ end in the first match, after working hard for a 30-ball 36, he gave it away against Kolkata Knight Riders. However, he showed glimpses of being in form and it is difficult to keep him out in the Dream11 team with his record in the last 5 IPLs. David Warner is going to play with the ball coming into him with Delhi Capitals having a left-arm spinner and leg-spinner, and that will help him greatly. Take a bet on David Warner. 

Shreyas Iyer (9.5 credits)
The skipper of the Delhi Capitals has not yet lit up the IPL, but is a player who is bound to become good. To date, he has scores of 39 and 26 in the tournament, but despite not scoring high, he has looked at relative ease. He has a good temperament and can play the spinners very well. He is sure to take additional responsibility against the likes of Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan, and ultimately look to make his starts count.

Kagiso Rabada (9.5 credits)

Kagiso Rabada, one of the best fast bowlers going around, has shown in the two matches he has played as to why he is so highly rated. While he picked up 2 wickets in the opening match and 2 more in the super over which followed, winning the match for Delhi Capitals, he put in an even better performance in the match against Chennai Super Kings with 3 wickets that stuffed the daylights out of the chase of CSK. Kagiso Rabada bowls with great pace and accuracy, he should certainly be in your Dream11 team.

Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2020, Match 11: Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

In the 2020 Indian Premier League, the undefeated Delhi Capitals take on the winless Sunrisers Hyderabad. The match takes place on September 29 at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi, and the live-action begins at 19:30 local time.


After both teams posted 157/8 and crashed the Chennai Super Kings last time out, Delhi began their campaign with a super-over win against Kings XI Punjab. With a total of 175/3, Prithvi Shaw scored 64, and Kagiso Rabada ‘s 3-26 led them to a 44-run victory.


On the other side, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their first game to Royal Challengers Bangalore because, despite Jonny Bairstow’s 61, they fell short of chasing 164 to win, and then lost the last time out to Kolkata Knight Riders. Out of a total of 142/4, Manish Pandey reached 51, but they suffered a seven-wicket defeat.



On Tuesday evening, the players will play under a hot and humid evening. The fitness standards of the cricketers have been thoroughly checked by the weather conditions so far in the tournament.



The pitch is suitable for batting at this place. Although some assistance will be provided to the spinners, the pacers should look to make the best use of the new ball.


Playing XIs:

Delhi Capitals:

Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Prithvi Shaw, Amit Mishra, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Anrich Nortje, Harshal Patel, Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Axar Patel


Sunrisers Hyderabad:

David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow, T Natarajan, Abdul Samad, Wriddhiman Saha/Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Khaleel Ahmed, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Abhishek Sharma, Manish Pandey


Delhi Capitals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Dream 11:

David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Rishabh Pant (wk), Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw, Mohammad Nabi, Marcus Stoinis, T Natarajan, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje


Delhi Capitals may have the same price to win this game as Sunrisers Hyderabad, but they have begun the IPL this season in a much better way. Their bowling attack has gelled together well to deliver good results for them. As Anrich Nortje bothers the batsmen with his fast pace and hits the deck approach, their late replacement with him has been in sensational form. Axar Patel is back to his best and, like his former self, has been bowling. In the last game, their batting has come right, and they will hope for one such success one more time. 

3 players you can exclude from your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Mumbai Indians (MI)


Aaron Finch (9 credits)
Although Aaron Finch failed rightly in the tournament with scores of 29 and 20, but he looked unconvincingly at the crease. As he normally does, he was neither able to rotate the strike well nor hit the huge boundaries at will. He could have a hard time against Mumbai Indians’s quality pace. In addition, there are a lot of top quality top-order batsman playing in this match. So, it would be better to go for them instead of Aaron Finch.

Dale Steyn (8.5 credits)

In the two matches he has played, Dale Steyn has been incredibly underwhelming. While in the first game he picked up 1 wicket for 33 runs, and in the second match against Kings XI Punjab he went for almost 60 runs. He seemed ineffective in both of those matches. He’s not the great bowler that he used to be and has lacked in variations and pace as well. It would be a wise choice not to include him for this game.

Krunal Pandya (8.5 credits)

Krunal Pandya is one player who hasn’t performed much for Mumbai Indians. While in the first match, he gave away 37 runs in his 4 over quota and picked a sole wicket, in the second game, he bowled just 1 over. Besides that, he also seemed uncomfortable with not being able to get into any sort of rhythm with the bat. He was a great player for Mumbai Indians, but he looks badly out of form this season and shouldn’t include him in your team.

3 players you must include in your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Mumbai Indians (MI)


Rohit Sharma (10.5 credits)
By playing a match-winning innings of 80 in the second match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma made up for his failure in the first game. He was able to hit his signature pull strokes with ease and cleanly hit the ball. Rohit Sharma has traditionally performed well against Royal Challengers Bangalore, particularly in the last two years. We might expect a lot of runs from Rohit’s bat with the middling bowling line up of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rohit’s form.

Virat Kohli (10.5 credits)

Yes, in this IPL, Virat Kohli has looked out of sorts. He does not have an extraordinary record against Mumbai Indians either. To back up this selection, there is no data as such. But Virat Kohli is a player who always bounced back after any failure.

He is set to come back much more determined and with a strategy to score runs, after the strong criticism of him after the last match. When he has been down and out, Kohli has always been the most dangerous and it is a hunch that he will show his power in this game against Mumbai Indians.

AB de Villiers (10 credits)

Ab de Villiers was one of the few players of Royal Challengers Bangalore who found form with the bat. He scored a masterful half century against Sunrisers Hyderabad and  even as wickets were falling around him in the game against Kings XI Punjab, he ended up scoring 28 out of 18 balls. He has performed well against Mumbai Indians and has 656 runs at a strike rate of 143 against them. After falling short in the last match, he will be looking to put in a commanding performance.

Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2020, Match 10: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians

The 10th Indian T20 League 2020 match will be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai between Bangalore and Mumbai. As both teams are going head to head for the first time this season, Bangalore will host Mumbai. With one win and a loss so far in their campaign, both of them have two points.

With a win against Hyderabad, Bangalore started well but suffered a massive loss of 97 runs against Punjab in their second match. In the death overs with the ball, which was followed by an entire batting order collapse, we got to see another bad outing from them. As soon as he gets fit and ready to go, they’d like to have Chris Morris’ service during the death overs. This time, they will expect to offer a much better show of fielding as they failed to take their chances that cost them the previous match literally.

On the other hand, after losing their season opener against Chennai in Abu Dhabi, Mumbai got back on track with a 49-run victory over Kolkata. In every department of the game, the defending champions outperformed Kolkata. In terms of net run rate, they have one win in two games and are well ahead of Bangalore. With no alterations to their eleven in Dubai, they would like to continue their all-round success and extend their winning streak to make it two in a row.



The weather in Dubai on Monday will be clear, and there is no risk of any weather-related disruption during the match, so there is a lot on the cards for a full-length game. It is estimated that the temperature will hover around 32 degrees Celsius.



Scoring runs in the second innings has been a challenging job for the batsmen in the 4 matches played at this venue so far. In the first innings, the runs are anticipated to flood, but it will not be easy at all to chase those runs down in the second winnings. So, the optimal option for the captain here should be batting first.


Probable XIs:


Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, Isuru Udana/Joshua Philippe, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal



Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson, Trent Boult, Hardik Pandya


Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Dream 11:

Virat Kohli (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), AB de Villiers, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dube, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal


Looking at the current form of both sides’ players and as for RCB skipper Virat Kohli, he has not found form yet, it seems difficult for RCB to get past the defending champions in the tournament. Mumbai Indians is expected to win this match.


3 players you can exclude from your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)


Jaydev Unadkat (8.5 credits)
Jaydev Unadkat ‘s stocks grew humongously after a great season in 2017 and he went  for a price of INR11.5 crores and then INR8.4 crores, both times to Rajasthan Royals team. He is currently with them for INR3 crore. Keeping aside his price, Jaydev Unadkat has been very disappointing in the last two years in general. In 2019 and 2018, he had an economy of 10.66 and 9.65. He went for 44 in 4 overs in the first match of the season as well. As a bowler, he seemed to have lost his touch and his slower balls became very predictable. He might become fodder for the explosive batsmen of  Kings XI Punjab with the short boundaries of Sharjah.

Sheldon Cottrell (8.5 credits)
A surprising addition to this list might be Sheldon Cottrell. He did well in both of the matches he played, picking up two wickets each. This will be an entirely new match, however, and he might not be able to adapt to the new ground. He doesn’t have an excessive pace and if he ends up bowling in the death overs, Sheldon Cottrell might go for runs with a batsmen set at the crease. It’s a hunch, but Sheldon Cottrell may be one of the players who may not be right for this match having performed well earlier.

Jimmy Neesham (8.5 credits)
The inclusion of Jimmy Neesham in the last game was a bit of a surprise. It seemed as though he came into the squad not because he added the extra value to the side, but because they just want to leave Jordan out. Jimmy Neesham bats at 6-7 and he might not even get an opportunity to bat with Sharjah being a batting paradise. In addition to that, against top batsmen, his medium pace will not be effective. He’s a player you can surely leave out of your Dream11 team.

3 players you must include in your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)


K.L Rahul(10.5 credits)
One of the best innings in IPL history against RCB was played by K.L Rahul as he scored up 132 * out of only 69 balls. Rahul played percentage cricket  early on and then destroyed all the bowlers at death. On the larger ground of Dubai, he struck huge sixes and is sure to take confidence in this match as well. He looks to be in great form and we could witness another KL Rahul show with Rajasthan Royals not having a really lethal bowling line up.

Jos Buttler (10.5 credits)
Jos Buttler will be looking to make an explosive comeback after missing out on the first match because of the quarantine. With 311 runs in 8 innings last year and 548 runs in 13 innings in 2018, he has been the mainstay of Rajasthan Royals in the last two seasons. He will certainly be looking to make a huge impact at the top of the order in Sharjah, which has a comparatively smaller ground.

Sanju Samson (9.5 credits)
In the game against Chennai Super Kings, Sanju Samson lit up Sharjah as he smoked 9 sixes in a score of 74. For a number of seasons now, Sanju Samson has been an excellent performer in the IPL and always begins the season with a bang. He is sure to have great memories of the last match and this time around he will aim to bring in an equally good performance as well. He enjoyed facing spin and he could make life hard for Kings XI Punjab with they having two inexperienced leg spinners.

Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2020: Match 9, Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab

The 9th match of IPL 2020 will be held at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, played between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab. The match will be kicked off on 27th September (Sunday) at 20:00 (GMT+6). 

After that fine victory against the Chennai Super Kings in their first match, the Rajasthan Royals will be facing Kings XI Punjab in this match. Both these sides would like to put up big totals at a small stadium in Sharjah and register yet another victory in the tournament. While the Rajasthan Royals will play their second match at this venue, it will be the first one for Kings XI Punjab team.

Although Kings XI Punjab started off with an upset against the Delhi Capitals, they successfully bounced back hard against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. They not only recovered from the bruises of the first defeat  but also greatly improved their Net Run Rate (NRR) by recording a 97-run victory. They’d aim to continue this momentum and make it two out of two.


During the match, strong winds are expected and Sunday evening will be very hot. It is expected that the humidity levels will increase as the match progresses. 


Another high-scoring game could be on the cards with short boundaries and a batting-friendly pitch. At this venue, it is hard for both the spinners and the pacers to bowl.

Average first innings score: 216 (At this pitch in this tournament)
Chasing Teams Record: 0 Won, 1 Lost, 0 Tied


Probable Playing XIs

Rajasthan Royals:
Steve Smith (c),  Jos Buttler, Robin Uthappa, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shreyas Gopal, Sanju Samson (wk),Riyan Parag,  Tom Curran, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat.

Kings XI Punjab:
KL Rahul (c)(wk), Chris Gayle/Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan,  Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair,  Glenn Maxwell, , Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami,  James Neesham, Sheldon Cottrell.

Rajasthan Royals vs Kings XI Punjab Dream11:

Jos Buttler (c), Steve Smith (vc), KL Rahul, , Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, , Yashasvi Jaiswal, Glenn Maxwell, Ravi Bishnoi, Sheldon Cottrell, Mohammed Shami, Shreyas Gopal


With the short boundaries in Sharjah, there is a chance
that Chris Gayle may make it to the Kings XI Punjab team in place of Nicholas Pooran. After the toss, watch out for the Playing XIs. According to our cricket expert’s predictions, Rajasthan Royals will win this match! 

3 players you can exclude from your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)


Sunil Narine (10 credits)
Sunil Narine is not the bowler he used to be half a decade back and has also begun to be found as a batsman. While his variations are no longer as  lethal and batsmen are capable of reading it, pacers have begun to bounce out again and again.

Sunil Narine picked up one wicket giving 22 runs in the first match, but never looked threatening. He was also dismissed for just 9 runs. His performances do not justify his credit requirement of 10 and you can therefore overlook him for this match.

Pat Cummins (9 credits)

In the first match, the million-dollar boy, Pat Cummins, who went for INR15.5 cr at the auction, underperformed tremendously as in his 3 overs he went for 49 runs. He was taken to the cleaners, and the captain Dinesh Karthik did not even have the confidence to finish off his quota.

Though it may be due to initial rustiness, and in this match Pat Cummins may perform better, he’s not as tremendous a bowler in T20 as he is in Test matches. In this match, his teammate David Warner may also be able to line him up, so it is better not to choose Pat Cummins in your team.

Vijay Shankar (8.5 credits)

Vijay Shankar hasn’t been able to perform much in top-flight cricket since being selected for the 2019 World Cup. He bowled 1.2 overs in the last match giving away 14 runs picking up 1 wicket but as a batsman coming in at 5, he was dismissed at a crucial stage in the match for a first ball duck being unable to read a googly.

Even in the last IPL, Shankar was unable to put in any match-winning performances despite getting a lot of deliveries to himself. He is a talented player, but as of now he hasn’t been making use of it, and for this match he can be left out.
