*With Stokes out of the tournament, RR will again have to change their opening combination and they have plenty of options. Buttler can be back opening, Liam can open or Miller can be slotted in the middle order by opening with Sanju. 

*Tye’s quarantine is over, and if required, can replace Fizz. 

*Tyagi looks fully fit now, might be available for selection.

*While Rabada has joined the DC squad, Nortje’s second test results are yet to come and therefore, he might be unavailable for this game.

Section 6: Better numbers in first or Innings?

DC batsmen vs RR:

RR batsmen vs DC: 

No major difference in numbers with enough sample size. 

RR bowlers vs DC: 

Gopal in second ☑️

DC bowlers vs RR:

Sections 7: Player performance at the venue:

DC & RR batsmen at Wankhede in IPL: 

Buttler while chasing ☑️

RR & DC bowlers at Wankhede: 

Woakes, Ash & Mishra bowling first: ☑️

Tye has played just the two games at Wankhede but got 4 in first & 2 in second ☑️

Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Jos Buttler (if opens): With Stokes’ injury, Buttler might be back opening for RR. Looked absolutely brilliant in the last game before he got clean bowled to an amazing Jhye Richardson delivery. And as an opener, he does even better: 

Buttler opening vs No 4 in T20’s: 

Position Matches Average SR50
Opening 7040.5615125
44929.481418

Buttler opening vs No 4 in IPL:

Position Matches Average SR
Opening 3140.66157
No4721.5140

Also, no specific threats against the DC quicks:

Woakes 52239
Rabada 622370
Nortje421361
Avesh 110340

Buttler’s last 5 innings at Wankhede: 25, 89, 94*, 33, 17

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Sanju Samson: Almost a default captaincy pick in small leagues after his last knock. Loves playing at Wankhede and is keeping as well. 

Sanju at Wankhede: 

Innings 15
Runs500
Average 33.33
SR152
30+6
50/1003/1 

Sanju’s weird pattern that we discussed in the last game, where he performs in the first half of the tournament and fails in the second half gets even better with that last knock:

Phase Matches RunsAverage 50100
First 7 matches 2283944.19 42
After 7 matches 2043824.320

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Rishab Pant (batting first): Pant has been in excellent form and also looked good in the last game. Has done well against RR and also at Wankhede. 

Pant vs RR: (his best average against any IPL team) 

Innings 5
Runs225
Average 75

All 5 innings vs RR: 5, 53*, 78*, 69, 20

Pant at Wankhede: 

Innings 4
Runs140
Average 70
NO

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Dhawan & Shaw: Both are in good form with the bat, especially, Shaw. Dhawan will be a very popular captaincy choice in small leagues and you can go with them as well. Archer has got the better of Shaw in last few innings, who is now unavailable so that helps too. 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.
