Fantasy Picks for the RR vs GT Match
Captain : Ashwin
Ashwin’s variations will be too much to handle on such wickets. When the GT tries to go hard against him, it will be the route to pick for Ashwin.
Vice captain : Devdutt Padikkal
Padikkal is a fantastic player of spin with his sweep shot makes the difference. With the kind of form he has been in the tournament, he is a right choice for vice captain.
Batsmen : Miller, Padikkal, Jaiswal, Gill
Gill and Jaiswal are in excellent touch with the new ball. With Jaiswal knowing the conditions well he can be a nightmare once again.
Miller’s death over batting can make a huge difference in this game. His ability to make boundaries is something that can win thus game.
Wicketkeeper : Samson
Samson will have to play a responsible gamer from his side as a captain on this wicket. He has done it before and it is expected of him.
All rounders : R Ashwin, Hardik
Hardik Pandya is a good power hitter of spin bowling. This adds more trust on picking him.
Bowlers : Little, Chahal, Noor, Rashid Khan.
All three wrist spinners are the most impactful bowlers of this tournament. Both Rashid and Chahal are unplayable with their variations while Noor is bringing in new angles with his left arm bowling.
Little is improvising in every game and he is becoming the go to bowler for Hardik.
