Dhawan has been in prime form in this season so far and is currently the highest scorer of IPL 2021. Shreyas Iyer has also made a bright comeback for the side, and played a key role alongside Pant in stabilising the DC innings after the early blows against RR in the side's previous game. Rahul Tripathi, meanwhile, was brilliant in the side's win against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Bar the previous game against CSK, Gill has also provided KKR with quick starts.
All-Rounders Sunil Narine
Sunil Narine showed in the last game that he is feeling at home on UAE surfaces as he picked three wickets in the last game while almost took KKR home in a thriller against CSK.
Bowlers Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Lockie Ferguson
Nortje and Rabada have been lethal with seething pace ever since the two combined for the DC in IPL 2020. In the previous game, Nortje ended with figures of 2/18 in four overs while Kagiso Rabada also entered the top-5 among most wicket-takers. Avesh Khan was also among the wickets against RR.

Sharjah with its flat surface and short boundary is expected to be a batting paradise, with no margin for error for the bowlers while good deliveries are also punished. The pacers should get the ball to swing around in the early exchanges, keeping the batters on their toes. However, the ball should skid on to the bat under lights, making it easy for strokeplay.
The weather will remain dry throughout the day and dew is expected as the match progresses.
