Fantasy Picks for the SRH vs RR Match
Captain : Hardik
With the new ball, Hardik will get an effective nip from this wicket. Also, in batting , he can make a good contribution.
Vice captain : R Khan
The man who never goes out of form. He has set his standard so high, so that even in his bad days he is able to produce a huge impact for his side.
Wicketkeepers : N Pooran
Pooran is a good batter of fast bowling . And also he walks in the death overs most often – the reason he tops the six hitting stats of this season. This makes him a right pick for this game.
Batsmen : KL Rahul, S Gill, Sai Sudharsan
All three batters are good in form right now. Also they are producing runs for the winning stake of their teams.
All rounders : Stoinis, H Pandya, K Pandya
When K Pandya has a good day, it reflects in all his departments. That eventually makes him a match winner for LSG.
Stoinis hasn’t made a bigger impact with the bat yet in this tournament but with the ball he is pretty decent. It may be his time to propel his batting.
Bowlers :R Khan, M Wood, M Shami, R Bishnoi
Both M Shami and M Wood are the serious contenders for the purple cap. They can’t be missed out on a wicket like this.
R Bishnoi’s googlies are effective for both the left handed batters and right handed batters. Considering his current form, he plays a vital role for LSG.
