DC has one of the best wicketkeeper batsmen. Rishabh Pant and Aussie vice-captain Alex Carey are their two options. Rishabh Pant hasn't fired well in this IPL season. But owing to his capabilities he can single-handedly destroy the bowling line-up of KKR.
Opening duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Shaw hasn't fired together. However, Shaw was MOM against CSK. Shreyas Iyer and Shimron Hetmyer haven't performed upto their capabilities and this did hurt DC during the chase against SRH.
