This Sunday makes way for another exciting match of the Indian Premier League when the Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Delhi Capitals. Two very prominent franchisees of the tournament battling for 2 crucial points will make the Sunday even better. The match will be held in the M.A.Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai and is scheduled to start at 7:30pm.
When we talk about IPL, how can we forget about the Fantasy League? We bring to you our top Fantasy picks for this game; check it out:
1- Shikhar Dhawan
When we talk about fantasy picks, Shikhar Dhawan is the first name that comes to our minds. The left-handed batsman has been very consistent with the runs and is expected to score big against his former team. In the 4 games played, he has scored 231 runs at an average of 57.75, with his highest score being 92. It won’t be a surprise if he bags another phenomenal performance. The Chepauk requires an anchor batsman, and we feel Shikar Dhawan is that player for the Capitals.
2- Amit Mishra
The spin wizard may not be at the peak of his career but can be an excellent differential buy. In his last game against Mumbai Indians, he scalped 4 crucial wickets on the same venue, and it won’t be a surprise if he delivers again. The pitch in Chennai is known for its spin, and the leggie is the right man to exploit the conditions.
3- Rashid Khan
One spinner follows another. Rashid Khan, as usual, has been lethal in this tournament. He has picked up 5 wickets in the 4 matches with an unmatchable economy rate of 5.06. We expect Rashid to pick more wickets in this particular game because of the attacking intent of the Delhi Capitals team.
4- Rishabh Pant
Another left-handed batsman, Rishabh Pant, is in the form of his life. The wicket-keeper cannot be ignored from any Fantasy team because he can explode anytime with the bat. Rishabh is one of the rare players to whom the pitch conditions do not matter. Captaincy, which adds on additional responsibility, has improved Pant even further.
5- Jonny Bairstow
Bairstow has been very consistent for the Sunrisers. In the 4 matches played, he has scored 171 runs at an average of 57.66. The Chepauk always troubles the batsmen, and for Jonny to have such a record here is outstanding. He has been Hyderabad’s best batsman in the season until now, and we have no doubts he would continue to do so.
