Preview for DB vs NW Dream11 Contest:
Despite not winning a game until yesterday, the Northern Warriors got off the mark in style, becoming the first team in this edition to score 150+ runs in 10 overs. They annihilated the Chennai Braves with the bat, and have regained great confidence to face the highly-spirited Delhi Bulls unit. The Bulls went down narrowly to league leaders Team Abu Dhabi, but if form factor says something, it is that the Bulls are favorites to win this fixture.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Rilee Rossouw, Mohammad Hafeez, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan, Dwayne Bravo (c), Dominic Drakes, Ravi Rampaul, Romario Shepherd, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Shiraz Ahmed

There isn’t any purchase for the bowlers in this format of the game, and more often than not, it will be a flat deck in offer for these sides. The bowlers must use their mixing-up skills to reap rewards.

DB vs NW Dream11 Prediction
The Delhi Bulls will be dominating this contest based on current form, but fantasy managers must be smart in picking up players from the Warriors, even if they don’t pick as many from them. It might not be a bad choice even to pick a majority of players from Warriors as they are coming into this game with greater recent confidence.
DB vs NW Dream11 Captaincy Picks
Moeen Ali: He smacked a sensational 19-ball 49 to help Warriors register their first win of the tournament. He looks in great knick with the ball too, making him a worthy choice for captaincy in small leagues.
Kennar Lewis: Lewis has 103 runs to his credit in the tournament, but his 19-ball 49 from Wednesday will be playing in a lot of people’s minds. He is an ideal choice to take a gamble with in the mega leagues.
Rovman Powell: The highest run-scorer in the tournament, Rovman Powell has 182 runs in 5 knocks at an average in excess of 36. He is a fantastic choice for vice-captaincy for fantasy managers.
