CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Delhi vs Hyderabad on September 22,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Delhi vs Hyderabad on September 22 Delhi Capitals will go head-to-head against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 33rdmatch of the IPL 2021 on Wednesday. In their previous meeting, Delhi Capitals held their nerves in a super over contest against Sunrisers Hyderabad to seal the victory. Shreyas Iyer, who missed the first leg of the IPL due to an injury, is back in the squad, but Rishabh Pant will continue his role as a captain in the second leg as well. They currently hold the second spot in the standings with 12 points. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, had a lean patch in the first half of the IPL. They sacked David Warner from the captaincy role, but even that decision did not work in their favor. They managed to win only one of their 7 matches in the first leg. They are currently sitting at the bottom of the table with only 2 points in their bank. Best economical pick – Avesh Khanwas highly impressive with his accurate bowling in the first half of the IPL. He has scalped 14 wickets in 8 matches, with the best figures of 3 for 32. Top captains & vice captains – Shikhar Dhawanwill be extremely disappointed not to find a place in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup squad. The opening batsman, affectionately known as ‘Gabbar’, has scored 380 runs in 8 matches so far in this IPL at an average of 54.28. Kane Williamsonis an all-format player and knows how to win matches for his side. He is calm and composed at the crease, which is his biggest strength. He mainly relies on his technique rather than going for fancy T20 shots. Smart pick – Whichever league he might be playing in,Rashid Khanalways tends to fight for the leading wicket-taker award. He is highly deceptive, and picking him is one of the tougher tasks a batsman could face. Moreover, he can hit big sixes as well. Cautious Pick – Shreyas Iyeris back after completely recovering from a shoulder injury. This will be his first match after a long gap, but we have seen plenty of excellent knocks from his bat in this competition. You can take a risk and pick in your fantasy team. My XI – Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Kane Williamson (Vice-Captain), Rashid Khan, Avesh Khan, Prithvi Shaw, Kagiso Rabada, Marcus Stoinis, Rishabh Pant, Jason Roy, Manish Pandey, Wridhiman Saha

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Rajasthan on September 21,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Rajasthan on September 21 Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals are set to face each other in Match No.32 of the 2021 Indian Premier League on Tuesday, September 21 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The Royals were jolted with a blow as Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer won’t be featuring for them. However, they have roped in South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi, the ICC’s no.1 ranked T20I bowler. Moreover, the Royals have Mustafizur Rahman, who was in scintillating form in the matches against New Zealand and Australia. The Royals are placed at fifth in the points table with six points. The Kings, on the other, have had their travails as well. However, they managed to rope in England leg-spinner Adil Rashid to strengthen their bowling. Dawid Malan’s departure will deplete their batting to some extent. The Kings are precariously placed at the sixth spot in the points table. Best economical pick – Liam Livingstoneis likely to open the innings for Rajasthan Royals in Jos Buttler’s absence. He is a tremendous striker of the cricket ball and has performed well for England in recent times. Top captains & vice captains – KL Rahul was in excellent form in the first phase of the Indian T20 league. The Punjab skipper scored 331 runs in 7 innings and plundered his runs at an average of 66.20 and a strike rate in excess of 135. He will once again hold the key for the Punjab side in their first match of the second leg against Rajasthan. Chris Morris is the leading wicket-taker for the Rajasthan side in the 2021 edition of the Indian T20 league. The 34-year-old picked up 14 wickets in Phase 1 of the tournament and scalped his wickets at a strike rate of just 11.14. Smart pick – Mustafizur Rahman is currently in the form of his life. In 2021, he has picked up 18 wickets in T20Is from 11 matches. Moreover, he was literally unplayable in the T20Is against Australia and New Zealand. Against the Aussies, he bowled at an economy of less than four. In the 2021 IPL, the Satkhira-born has picked up eight wickets at an economy rate of 8.29. Cautious Pick – Moises Henriqueshas played 3 matches so far in this year’s IPL and has managed to score only 16 runs in 2 innings. It’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams. My XI – KL Rahul (Captain), Chris Morris (Vice-Captain), Liam Livingstone, Mustafizur Rahman, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Mohammad Shami, Tabraiz Shamsi, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tewatia, Deepak Hoooda

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Bangalore on September 20 Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore will face each other in the 31stmatch of the IPL 2021. Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi will host the contest between the sides. Kolkata Knight Riders would not have enjoyed the first leg of the IPL, as they won only 2 of their 7 games. They bank on youngsters at the top of the order, as well as in the bowling department. Royal Challengers Bangalore has got the perfect opportunity to lift the IPL trophy this year. The bunch of foreign players they possess will hand them a big advantage in the UAE leg.

He is the leading wicket-taker so far, having picked up 17 wickets, with the best figures of 5/27. Top captains & vice captains – Whatever the condition and situation may be,AB de Villierson any day is the savior number 1 for RCB. He has won plenty of matches single-handedly for his team. In 6 innings in this year’s IPL, de Villiers has scored 207 runs at an average of 51.75 and an excellent strike rate of 164.28. Devdutt Padikkalis the next big thing in Indian cricket. He will be acclimatized to UAE conditions, since he made his IPL debut last year in this country. The 21-year-old southpaw has mustered 195 runs in 6 matches in this IPL at an average of 39, which includes a knock of unbeaten 101, which came against Rajasthan Royals.

Cautious Pick – Shubman Gillhas managed to score 132 runs in 7 matches in this year’s IPL. The KKR opener has maintained an average of 18.85. You can take a risk and pick him in your fantasy team.

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Mumbai on September 19,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Mumbai on September 19 The second leg of the IPL is all set to commence from September 19 in the UAE. Chennai Super Kings will battle it out against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians to resume the IPL 2021. The three-time champions Chennai Super Kings had a forgettable campaign in the UAE last season as they failed to qualify for the playoff for the first time. However, they roared back to their best as the tournament returned to India and are sitting second on the table on the back of five wins in seven games before the pandemic halted the tournament. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, find themselves in 4th place, with four wins and three defeats in seven outings. They won their last two games before the suspension and will be aiming to starts off from where they left. Best economical pick – Chennai Super Kings has effectively used England all-rounder Moeen Ali like no other franchise in the league. Moeen Ali turned out to be the trump card for MS Dhoni in the first phase of the IPL as he performed with both bat and ball. Coming to bat at number 3, Ali smashed 206 runs in 6 innings at an average of 34.33 and a strike rate of 157.25. With the ball, he picked 5 wickets in 6 innings at an economy of 6.16. Top captains & vice captains – Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma looked in fine form in the IPL phase 1. In 7 games, Hitman scored 250 runs at an average of 35.71, including a fifty. Moreover, Rohit Sharma averages 28.92 against Chennai Super Kings. He has featured in 29 games against MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings and has amassed 752 runs at an average of 28.92, including 7 fifties. He looked in good touch in the red-ball cricket against England and is likely to continue his fine form. Ruturaj Gaikwad has booked a spot for him at top of the innings and is now the first-choice opener for Chennai Super Kings since Shane Watson’s retirement. Gaikwad made a name after scoring three half-centuries in the IPL 2020 after the three-time champions failed to book a spot in the playoffs. In 2021, Gaikwad has scored 196 runs in 7 innings at an average of 28.00, including two fifties. Smart pick – Rahul Chahar has been in the Mumbai Indians set up for some time now. He has earned a spot in the playing 11 on the back of his effective leg-break and will be a crucial pick in your fantasy team. He picked up 11 wickets in 7 innings in phase 1 of the IPL 2021 and will be aiming to replicate the same in the remainder of the tournament. Cautious Pick – English all-rounder Sam Curran has just reached the UAE for the tournament. But CSK will miss his services in the opening game. Curran will have to undergo the six-day mandatory quarantine. Thus, he would not be able to take the charge of the field for the game against Mumbai Indians. Curran has been a pivotal aspect of the team and his contributions will be crucial for CSK to continue their good form in the second leg of the IPL. My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Ruturaj Gaukwad (Vice-Captain), Rahul Chahar, Moeen Ali, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock, Ishan Kishan, Suresh Raina, Kieron Pollard

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Mumbai on May 4,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Mumbai on May 4 A side that is struggling to get its act together, and a side that is coming off a sensational triumph in its previous match will clash against each other in Match No.31 of the 2021 edition of the IPL. The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side has managed to win just a single match out of the 7 that they have played thus far, and are occupying the last place in the points table. In their previous encounter, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) side thrashed them by 55 runs. Even though the captaincy duties for the SRH side changed hands from David Warner to Kane Williamson, their fortunes did not change. On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians (MI) will enter the match with a lot of confidence. They pulled off a miraculous victory against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) side and chased down a target of 219 runs off the final delivery. And surely, the Rohit Sharma-led side will start as the favorites in the battle between these two sides on 4th May 2021. Best economical pick – Rahul Chaharis the leading wicket-taker for Mumbai Indians in the season and has bagged 11 wickets to his name till now in 7 games. Top captains & vice captains – Quinton De Kock has contributed in a significant manner with the willow in the last 2 innings that he has played for the Mumbai Indians. While he scored a match-winning 70* against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) side, he also plundered a 28-ball 38 against the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) outfit. Manish Pandeyhas scored 193 runs in 5 innings he played, at an average of 48.25 and is expected to play the role of anchor in the middle-order. He can turn out to be a good pick in the team. Smart pick – Rashid Khan has been in excellent form with the ball for the Hyderabad side in the 2021 edition of the IPL. The Afghanistan cricketer has scalped 10 wickets in the 14th IPL edition thus far and has scalped his wickets at an average of just 17.20. Cautious Pick – With Warner dropped in the previous match, Mohammad Nabi came into the side to add to the balance of the side. However, he was used in quite a mysterious way by the newly appointed skipper, Williamson. Nabi bowled only one over and was smashed for 21 runs. It was even more absurd that Williamson managed to keep him away from the attack for quite a long while. My XI – Quinton de Kock (Captain), Manish Pandey (Vice-Captain), Rahul Chahar, Rashid Khan, Kane Williamson, Kieron Pollard, Jonny Bairstow, Trent Boult, Krunal Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Suryakumar Yadav

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Bangalore on May 3,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Bangalore on May 3 The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) started the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) with four wins on the trot. However, the Virat Kohli-led unit has stuttered a wee bit after losing two out of their last three games. Even in the game against the Delhi Capitals (DC), they got over the line by a solitary run. In their next match, they would be up against the Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). After beating them at the Chepauk, the Challengers would be looking to put forth a similar show even at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The Knights, on the other hand, lost their previous game at the hands of the Capitals and are placed sixth in the table. They need a win desperately to make their way up the points, but the task won’t be easy against the in-form RCB. Best economical pick – Rahul Tripathi has been batting at three and is the only batsman who has looked to up the ante in the top order. Tripathi just needs to be a bit consistent and he can be a superb Fantasy pick. Tripathi has scored 187 runs in seven matches so far at a strike-rate of 135.50 and can clearly earn a lot of Fantasy points on his day. Top captains & vice captains – AB de Villiers couldn’t get going in RCB’s previous match, but the threat he poses to the opposition can’t be undermined. In seven games, he has scored 207 runs at an average and strike rate of 51.75 and 164.28 respectively. Against the Knights, the 37-year-old has notched 511 runs at an average and strike rate of 39.31 and 156.27 respectively. The focus will again be on the right-hander. Virat Kohli hasn’t looked at his best at all. He played a few crunching strokes in the last game but lost his touch soon. But his big knock is not far away having scored 198 runs in seven matches thus far at a strike-rate of 121.47. Smart pick – Harshal Patel has been exceptional for the Challengers at the death. Though he went for quite a few runs in the previous game, overall, numbers are worth envying. In seven games, the fast bowler has 17 wickets to his name at an economy of 9.17. In RCB’s last meeting against the Knights, the pacer bowled beautifully in the death overs as he picked up two wickets, conceding a mere 17 runs. Cautious Pick – The RCB skipper has shown faith in Rajat Patidar’s abilities, which might lead him to hold his spot. But RCB might be tempted to give a look-in to Washington Sundar to counter KKR’s left-handers. My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), Virat Kohli (Vice-Captain), Rahul Tripathi, Harshal Patel, Devdutt Padikal, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakaravarthy, Glenn Maxwell, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh karthik

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Delhi on May 2,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Delhi on May 2 The 29th match of VIVO IPL 2021 will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC). Both the teams have played 7 games till now, out of which, Punjab Kings have won 3 games while Delhi Capitals have won 5 games. Punjab Kings is currently positioned at 5th place on the points table with 3 victories out of 7 games. The team won their previous game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)/and must be looking to continue their good form. In the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the team was invited to bat first but the start of the team was not good as the new opener Prabhsimran Singh departed cheaply. After this, the universe boss Chris Gayle came in to bat and played an entertaining knock of 46 runs off just 24 deliveries, including 6 fours and 2 sixes. On the other end, skipper KL Rahul took the charge till the very end and scored an unbeaten 91 runs off 57 deliveries. Harpreet Brar, the local youngster, also played a cameo inning of brief but important 25 runs and led the team to 179 runs. While defending this total, the bowlers bowled extremely well and decimated the strong batting lineup of Bangalore to 145 runs, and registered a win by 34 runs. The newcomer Harpreet Brar picked 3 important wickets and became the Player of the Match for his all-round performance. Apart from this, Ravi Bishnoi picked 2 wickets while Chris Jordan, Riley Meredith, and Mohammad Shami picked one wicket each. The team will try to carry forward their momentum and get another win for them. Talking about Delhi Capitals, this team is currently at 2nd place on the points table with 5 wins in the 7 games they have played so far. In their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the team registered an easy victory with the heroics of the batters. The skipper Rishabh Pant decided to bowl first after winning the toss and the opposition posted a total of 154 runs. Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav picked two wickets each while Avesh Khan and Marcus Stoinis grabbed one wicket each. While chasing this total, the team registered a convincing victory with the help of 46 runs from their experienced campaigner Shikhar Dhawan and an entertaining knock of 82 runs off just 41 deliveries from Prithvi Shaw, including 11 fours and 3 sixes. The team is in promising touch, both batters and bowlers are doing well. The biggest positive for this team till now are their openers who have performed consistently and in the bowling department, pacer Avesh Khan has got the attention of the spectators with his consistent wicket-taking deliveries. Out of a total of 27 encounters between the two teams, Punjab has won 15 games while Delhi has won 12 games. Best economical pick – The Punjab all-rounder Harpreet Brar turned the previous match around on its head with his brilliant performance with both the ball and the bat. He picked up three wickets and made a handy contribution with the bat as well. Top captains & vice captains – Shikhar Dhawanhas started the 2021 season right from where he left the 2020 edition. He has scored 40+ runs in three of his last five games, which includes a sublime knock of 92 runs against this very opponent, Punjab Kings. The captain of the Punjab KL Rahul team has been fantastic this season so far and has not broken a sweat. He is the leading run-getter in the tournament so far. He has made 331 runs in the seven matches so far. In the last match, he scored 91 runs. Smart pick – Delhi skipperRishabh Pantis also doing a good job with the bat. He scored a quick-fire 16 in the last game, while he scored 90+ runs in the two matches prior to that. Cautious Pick – With scores of 9, 33, 34*, and 4 this season, Steve Smithhas scored a total of 80 runs at an average of 26.66 from five games. He was not initially a part of the team but ever since his inclusion, none of his knock has been substantial. Smith’s strike rate of 112.67 in the season has also been a concern and that makes him an option to avoid. My XI – Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Rishabh Pant, Harpreet Brar, Chris Gayle, Prithvi Shaw, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Kagiso Rabada, Marcus Stoinis, Mayank Agarwal

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Rajasthan vs Hyderabad on May 2,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Rajasthan vs Hyderabad on May 2 Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), a couple of days ago, were thumped by the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. It was their fifth loss in six matches and they are languishing at the bottom of the points table. In their next game on Sunday, May 2, David Warner and Co would be up againstRajasthan Royals (RR) and would be looking to make some amends. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s untimely injury hasn’t done any good to them either. The Royals, on the other, have strained as well. Barring their win over the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), they haven’t looked convincing by any means. In their previous match, Mumbai Indians (MI) slapped them with a seven-wicket defeat. Their net run rate of -0.690 is also the worst among the participating teams. Best economical pick – The young Chetan Sakariya has been a revelation for the Rajasthan Royals in the 14th edition of theIPL. He is the most successful bowler for the franchise in terms of economy rate. Thus far, in six IPL matches, Chetan has picked seven wickets at an economy rate of 8 and an average of 26.29. Top captains & vice captains – Jonny Bairstow has arguably been the standout batter for the Sunrisers in the tournament. In six games, the right-hander has scored 218 runs at an average and strike rate of 43.60 and 141.55 respectively. He already has two half-centuries with a top score of an unbeaten 63. Against the Royals, the Englishman has scored 71 runs from three games with the highest score of 45. In the last two matches, Sanju Samson has batted quite well, getting his second successive score of 40+. He is their key batter and holds the key to the middle of Rajasthan Royals. He has been in some good knick this season. Smart pick – Rashid Khan has been the standout bowler for the Sunrisers in the league. In six matches, the tweaker has picked nine wickets. He is in decent form as he picked up three wickets against the Super Kings, though his performance came in a losing cause. His economy rate of 6.16 is also the best among his teammates. Against the Royals, Rashid has seven wickets from 21 overs at an economy of 6.38. Cautious Pick – Sunrisers Hyderabad sacked David Warner as captainfor the remainder of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). Kane Williamson replaced him at the helm even as the franchise confirmed that the Australian will continue to contribute to the team and direct them towards the path of success. However, it was also stated that the management is looking to try different combinations of overseas players in the team. This has dropped a big hint of David Warner most probably not playing their next game against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday. The southpaw hasn’t been at his best with the bat this season despite being the second-highest run-scorer for SRH so far. He has mustered 193 runs in six matches at an average of 32.16. But his strike-rate of 110.28 has been a worrying factor. My XI – Jonny Bairstow (Captain), Sanju Samson (Vice-Captain), Rashid Khan, Chetan Sakariya, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, David Miller, Mustafizur Rahman, Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Shivam Dube

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on May 1,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on May 1 Unarguably the biggest rivalry in the history of theIPL: the Chennai Super Kings versus the Mumbai Indians. A contest as mouth-watering as any ever gets. To take a cue from the recent happenings, Mumbai does not look at their challenging best to stop the unstoppable Super Kings, who have ticked all the boxes and have put up a clinical display, winning five on the bounce. Meanwhile, concerns have been in plenty for the Mumbai Indians, who are fresh after snapping a two-match streak of losses courtesy of their7 wicket win over RR. After ending the first leg of the tournament with more losses than wins, they must be pleased by the effort Quinton de Kock, Krunal Pandya, and bowlers put in to take them home and give a winning start to the Delhi leg. Mumbai has struggled in the powerplays with their opening partnerships not laying any solid platform. They have been forced to drop a middle-order mainstay Ishan Kishan after five failed outings, and even as Krunal Pandya played a handy knock against Royals, the team is yet to generate any result even close to what is expected from a middle-order of that kind. Against the Royals was the first instance in IPL 2021 that Mumbai batted second and the first time when they crossed 160. Doing that meant their death-over batting remained untested at the venue after they struggled horrendously in Chennai in that phase despite names like Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard in the lineup. Their arch-rivals have been at their dominating best, dishing out one brilliant performance after another and ruling the roost in the points table. The question was never on their merit or ability, but on how much would an aging side manage to compete in a tournament as cruelly competitive. CSK has shown that they might be old, but far from over. Their newest purchase, Moeen Ali, has been a revelation, contributing both with the bat and the ball. Openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis have given flying starts: 115, 74, 129 being the last three. Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu have solidified the middle-order, and Ravindra Jadeja has shown that he can win matches all by himself, let alone 10 members alongside. The Super Kings have bagged 14 powerplay wickets, the most this season and nearly five times as Mumbai (3). In short, there is no area where they have failed to impress, including MI’s bugbear in 2021 – death over batting. This has been the weakest Mumbai Indians have ever looked but despite that, an odd performance from Rohit Sharma, consistent ones from Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, and Trent Boult, and one from de Kock and Pandya recently has been for the taking. Despite being far from their best, they find themselves fourth on the table. Regardless of where they are, they can never be written off. Best economical pick – Moeen Ali has been in solid touch this season and has been a revelation at No. 3 for CSK. He has got a brisk start almost every game and he is striking at 155.78 in this IPL 2021. He has scores of 36, 46, 26, 25 and 15 in the five games that he has played so far. Moreover, he has been bowling well too and has returned with four wickets at an economy rate of 6.63. The off-spinning all-rounder has bowled just 11 overs in five games but with a few left-handers in the MI top-order, he should fancy his chances. Top captains & vice captains – Faf du Plessis has been outstanding in the ongoing edition of the T20 tournament. In six games, the right-hander has hammered 270 runs at an average and strike-rate of 67.50 and 140.62 respectively. He also has three fifties to show for his efforts with a top score of an unbeaten 95. Though against the Mumbai-based team, he averages a mere 22.85, Du Plessis has every chance of making amends. Jasprit Bumrahhas picked up only five wickets in the six games he has played thus far. Though he hasn’t gotten a lot of wickets, he has made sure of keeping the batters in check with accurate bowling. In 23 overs, the pacer has maintained an economy rate of 5.91. Against the Super Kings, the fast bowler has picked up eight wickets from 38.4 overs at a decent economy rate of 7.37. Smart pick – Rohit Sharma might not have got a big score in the last but he has been batting really well. He is at the top of the run charts for MI this season. He has got just fifty but he has constantly got solid starts. The MI skipper has amassed 215 runs at an average of 35.83. Thus, he has threatened to get a big score in almost every game. Moreover, Rohit has a good record against CSK while playing. Rohit has scored 626 runs which includes seven half-centuries against MS Dhoni and co. Cautious Pick – Nathan Coulter-Nile played his first game of the ongoing edition against RR and had to return without a wicket. In four overs, he gave away 35 runs at an economy rate of 8.75. My XI – Faf du Plessis (Captain), Jasprit Bumrah (Vice-Captain), Moeen Ali, Rohit Sharma, Rururaj Gaikwad, Rahul Chahar, Deepak Chahar, Suryakumar Yadav, Sam Curran, Jayant Yadav, Quinton de Kock

Best economical pick – Deepak Hoodais chipping in with wickets as well as runs for his team. While he looked good with the bat in the first few games, the Punjab player has picked up 2 wickets in his last 2 games. Top captains & vice captains – 37-year-old ‘youngster’AB de Villiersis playing like he is enjoying the prime of his cricketing career. He scored 75 runs from only 42 deliveries in his last game against Delhi Capitals. KL Rahul has masterful numbers against the Bangalore-based franchise. In nine games, the right-hander has notched 371 runs at an average and strike rate of 74.20 and 155.23 respectively. His top score of an unbeaten 132 came last year in Dubai, leading PBKS to a win. In the ongoing tournament, Rahul has scored 240 runs at an average of 48 with three half-centuries to show for his efforts. Smart pick – Harshal Patel, without much of a doubt, has been the standout batter for the Challengers in the tournament. He is currently the Purple Cap holder with 17 scalps from six games at a brilliant strike rate of 8.4. At the present point in time, he is picking up nearly three wickets in every game. Moreover, his economy rate of 8.50 isn’t the worst since the speedster mostly bowls at the death. Cautious Pick – Yuzvendra Chahal has been the heart of theRoyal Challengers Bangalore’s bowling over the years, picking up loads of wickets. Whenever they have done well, Chahal has always been among wickets. But it is amazing how other bowlers have done well in this season with their lead spinner not performing. This season he has picked up three wickets from six matches and in the lead up to the tournament, he didn’t have the best of forms. My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), KL Rahul (Vice-Captain), Deepak Hooda, Harshal Patel, Mohammad Siraj, Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, Glenn Maxewll, Devdutt Padikal, Arshdeep Sing
