Fantasy Picks for the MI vs PBKS Match
Captain : Suryakumar
This T20 specialist returned to his magical touch in the last game. A confident SKY is the most dangerous thing to face for any bowling side.
Vice captain : J Archer
Archer is getting his match experience after his long injury days. In fact, he found the rhythm in the last game. He will be a match-winner for MI in this game.
Batters : Suryakumar, T Varma, Dhawan
Dhawan is the most reliable player of PBKS. Even though he returned from the injury, he doesn’t seem like it affected any of his game.
T Varma, the young sensation, has done his part in the last game to win for MI. And the confidence he gets from those wins will be too good to watch.
Wicketkeeper: I Kishan, J Sharma
J Sharma has become a trustworthy middle-order batter for PBKS, proving it in every game.
Kishan is someone who can bang on any given day. If he gets the start he needs, it will be huge.
All rounders : C Green, Livingstone, S Curran, S Raza
All four all-rounders are very crucial in this game. All four have won games for their side. Their match-winning ability makes them an obvious choice.
Bowlers : J Archer, A Singh
Arshdeep is becoming bigger and bigger as every game progresses. His ability to pick wickets, especially with the left-arm angle, makes him special.
