Fantasy Picks for the MI vs SRH Match
Captain : Suryakumar Yadav
The SKY is at a peak form right now. His ability to work all around the park makes him most valuable.
Vice captain : Klaasen
Klaasen has just played one of the fine T20 innings. This could have a continuity. In Fact he is the only hope for SRH right now.
Batters : R Sharma, S Yadav, T David, Tripathi
Rohit hasn’t been upto the expectations. But he can find ways. He has almost reached the bottom. This game could be the right way to give a comeback.
When Tripathi gets his vibe right, he can win matches for SRH.
David’s power hitting at the death overs is something that MI is witnessing often now. He can be the most prolific pick.
Wicketkeeper: I Kishan, Klaasen
As usual, Kishan’s blistering opening will be a huge impact for this game.
All rounders : C Green, A Markram, M Jansen
C Green batting order is an issue. But when it occurs to be on top of the order he can be a game changer.
Markram and Jansen are the best all rounders you can go with in this game as they have the main role for their side.
Bowlers : P Chawla, B Kumar
P Chawla’s leg spin will always be a trouble for batter as it raises questions on every single ball.
B Kumar’s new ball swing and death over variations are an excellent package for a fast bowler.
