DC vs GT Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips for 40th Match of IPL 2024 | DC vs GT Dream11 Prediction Today | Delhi Pitch Report

April 17 saw a rare occurrence in IPL 2024. The bowlers had the biggest say as Delhi Capitals rolled Gujarat Titans for just 89 in Ahmedabad, leading to a big six-wicket win with 67 balls to spare.

However, DC then conceded 125 in the powerplay in their next outing against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The huge swing has been reflective of their season to date, with the ridiculous mixed with the sublime. However, there are positives, with young guns Jake Fraser-McGurk and Tristan Stubbs the two who could take DC to a win today.

For GT, they are chugging along but their batting remains a worry. They got over the line against Punjab Kings a few nights ago, but they need more in what is expected to be another belter of a batting pitch in Delhi.

Fantasy Cricket Tips for DC vs GT: Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Delhi Capitals:

  • Excitement machine Jake Fraser-McGurk is a potential captaincy pick in Dream11. He has smashed 55 (35), 20 (10) and 65 (18) in his first three IPL matches.
  • In nine T20s this year, Fraser-McGurk has scored 331 runs at an average of 36.78 and strike rate of 176.06.
  • Can David Warner find his best form? He has a great record against Mohit Sharma: 48 balls, 90 runs, one dismissal.
  • Rishabh Pant is DC’s leading run-scorer this season with 254 at a strike rate of 150.29. Tristan Stubbs is next with 199 at a superb strike rate of 180.90.
  • Seamers Khaleel Ahmed (1/18) and Mukesh Kumar (3/14) were too good for GT last week. Ishant Sharma, if fit, will also be important as he took 2/8.
  • Khaleel has dismissed Shubman Gill twice in 27 balls in the IPL (42 runs). Anrich Nortje has even better numbers against Gill, with three dismissals at an average of 11.30.

Gujarat Titans:

  • David Miller in T20s on this ground: 12 inns, 257 runs, avg. 36.71, SR 123.56. Miller has struck 17 runs off just five balls against Mukesh Kumar.
  • Rahul Tewatia as a differential pick in fantasy? He has been strong again in the finishing department, hitting four 20+ scores in his last five matches. He is striking at 144 overall this season.
  • Expect Rashid Khan to be used early against Rishabh Pant. The DC captain has been dismissed three times by legspin this season.
  • Umesh Yadav against David Warner promises to be an interesting battle. Warner has scored 99 off 68, but Umesh has dismissed him five times.
