Virat Kohli

Who else could be a team’s best players if they have Virat Kohli in their side? From the initial season of the IPL, Virat Kohli has been a part of the Bangalore team for the T20 cricket game. From being a novice youngster to leading the team, Kohli has been with this team. For several years now, RCB means Virat Kohli.

Kohli is the 2nd highest run scorer in the history of the IPL fantasy cricket. Over the previous year, he has been leading the Indian team wonderfully. His fans will all be expecting that he reflects similar expertise in the IPL too. And they, at last, have their name on that trophy. Virat Kohli is too fantastic a player to not be the best and too great a player to be missing out on that trophy for such a long time.

AB de Villiers

The 2nd most dependable name in the RCB team is Mr.360, AB de Villiers. Villiers is a player who has been constantly supporting Virat Kohli in making those big runs and crossing the final lines. It is just because of him that RCB can be assured of scoring runs even if Kohli has an off time.

He has 3 IPL centuries to his name with the highest score of an unbeaten 133. AB de Villiers will surely be the best player of RCB, even when he is going through a rough patch. He is one of the loved cricketers around the globe.

Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer is a Windies middle-order batsman who’ll enhance the already strong batting line-up of RCB. With the firepower of Kohli and Villiers, Hetmyer will only boost the bad dreams which a bowler gets before he faces this team. He is an extremely young batsman, with a long career ahead. He has that natural explosive nature that people choose the batsmen who are part of the Caribbean. Hetmyer can be very good with the bat when he is in form. His presence in your IPL fantasy cricket can give you good points.

During the last season of IPL T20 cricket games, Delhi Capitals has finished at the last of the tables. But if you remember the matches, they have given some good performances at last matches. This is a hope for a better future from their end to their fans, who are eagerly waiting to see one IPL trophy in the team’s hand.

Hence, here is a look at five such Delhi Capitals’ players who have the potential of changing their team’s fortunes at IPL fantasy cricket games:

Prithvi Shaw

This young 19-year-old cricketer from Mumbai has been playing for the Delhi team since IPL 2018. He has scored well in the restricted chances he got. Based on his performance, the Delhi team has decided to keep him for this season too.

During the last year’s IPL, he has scored 237 runs in just 3 innings. It has been expected, he is going to open the batting for the Delhi team this year alongside Shikhar Dhawan, another gem for the team. His aggressive style of batting and his sense of cricket is making him very special for the team.

Cricket expert has the opinion that Shaw will only improve in the years to follow. He has the ability to turn matches around for this team and that might turn the points table for them as well as they have a history of lingering at the bottom of it. Taking him in your IPL fantasy cricket team can let you get good points.

Rishabh Pant

Another young batsman of the team who is also the wicketkeeper for the team has proven his worth for the Indian team. He is an aggressive IPL player, playing 38 matches and scoring 1 century and 8 half centuries. Pant can be destructive on his performing days. He is runaway match winner without a second thought.

Trent Boult

The overseas player from New Zealand, Trent Boult has been another marvellous addition for the Delhi based IPL team. He is the essential pacer for the team who can rake up high speeds steadily. His variations are becoming increasingly deadly with each passing day.

Overall, when Boult delivers, his team goes closer to winning the match. Delhi will hope that he can make good delivery during bowling more often than not.

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan has played for Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2008, the inaugural season. After that, he has been bought by other teams. but for this season he is again back on the Delhi squad.

Dhawan is going to fit into the opening slot for Delhi Capitals. The Delhi-based cricketer is one of the successful players in IPL history. He has already scored 4057 runs, playing 143 games. He has also hit 32 half-centuries in his 11-year IPL career.

Colin Munro

The New Zealand cricketer is arguably the best T20 batsmen around the globe at this moment. He is the leading T20 run score. Do we need to say more about this gem? Or you can guess that he has the capability to bring fortune for Delhi Capitals during this IPL season.

1st ODI Match, Rothmans Four-Nations Cup at Sharjah 

Best bowling of Imran Khan with figures of 6-14 were in this ODI against India March 22, 1985. But for the daring fast bowler of Pakistani cricket team it went all in vain. Imran Khan ripped apart the batting line of Indian team at Sharjah to send the opposition packing for 125. But Pakistan’s own batting  went down for just 87. Imran Khan, who is now the Pakistani Prime Minister, still was man of the match. 

Final ODI, Austral-Asia Cup at Sharjah 

This is the match that will always remind the bitterest memories for India, and the sweetest ones for Pakistan. The match played on April 18, 1986, again an ODI played in Sharjah. With Pakistan needing four off the last ball to win, India’s Chetan Sharma ran in and bowled a full toss and Javed Miandad scored a six. Miandad, presented with a golden sword, became national hero for Pakistan. While Chetan Sharma faced insults when he returned home with the team. 

1st Test, Pakistan tour of India at Chennai 

India’s most celebrated batsman and a century from him, Sachin Tendulkar, was generally the recipe for success in the 1990s and 2000s but not in the 1999 Test match against Pakistan in Chennai. Chasing 271 runs by Pakistan for victory, Tendulkar scored an amazing 136 runs. But Pakistani off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq got him out and India finally lost by 12 runs. The generous Indian home crowd gave Pakistani team a standing ovation, but Tendulkar was broken-hearted. 

Final, ICC World Twenty20 at Johannesburg 

An India-Pakistan final in the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2007 was an ideal setting for cricket’s newest format. Misbah ul Haq of Pakistani team was on the verge of taking his team to an outstanding win with his batting in a chase of 158. 

But then came a moment of folly as Haq tried to play a daring shot to seal victory against Indian pacer Joginder Sharma in the final over. The ball went high into the waiting hands of Sreesanth. Indian team led by MS Dhoni celebrated as Haq missed the chance of a lifetime.
