Fantasy Picks for the LSG vs RCB Match
Captain : K Pandya
K Pandya on this conditions is the best pick to be the skipper of the team. He can bat spin well. And in bowling, he is setting his own master class.
Vice captain : P Chawla
Chawla with his leg spin can be a threat for LSG on a ground where boundaries are so big compared to other IPL venues.
Batters : Suryakumar, Badoni
Suryakumar is not an apt batter on such wickets. But still, the kind of form he is in makes him an obvious choice to go with.
Badoni, again a youngster who charges without any hesitation. With spin bowling he is comfortable and the challenge is the conditions that lie ahead for him.
All rounders : Green, M Stoinis, K Pandya
Being a fast bowling all rounder, the role of Stoinis and Green is huge. And they are in the right place and form to fulfill the demands.
Wicketkeepers: N Pooran, Quinton, Ishan
All three wicket keepers are known for their explosive nature. There is no better option to go with when these performers are batting with such a good touch.
Bowlers : Chawla, Mishra, Behrendorff
Mishra’s experience on these ground conditions will be a huge advantage for LSG.
Behrendorff with his pace variations can be vital for MI.
