Section 7: Finding the fantasy value: 

Rohit Sharma (batting first): Looked great in the last game (apart from that missed stumping on Gopal’s delivery) and batting first will be a very good captaincy choice at Abu Dhabi. His worst numbers in IPL have come against SRH, but facing Sandeep in this game (if he continues to be on the bench) will definitely help to improve those numbers.

Average 18.5

Rohit recent innings vs SRH: 32(25), 4(7), 6(5), 24(18), 11(14), 2(6), 11(10) 

Rohit (batting first) at Abu Dhabi: 

Innings 5
Average 46

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Bumrah: The only player who features in my every preview, will again be a good captaincy choice against a batting lineup that has struggled throughout the season, especially, their middle & lower middle order (if they have any). Bumrah has never been wicket less in the last 8 games against SRH. 

Bumrah vs SRH recent 8: 4-14-1, 4-41-2, 4-31-2, 3-16-1, 4-25-1, 4-32-2, 3.2-24-1, 4-24-3 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Rashid Khan (bowling second): Rashid has had a very forgettable second half, if you’re expecting SRH to do well and defend a total like they did in the last game, go with Rashid as C or VC in those combinations. Even bowling first he can be a good choice in this game as MI will go all guns blazing trying to score a mammoth score and might give few wickets to him. 

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL. 

QDK (chasing) (if plays): Was surprisingly benched in the last game, but if returns, can be a very good captaincy choice while chasing. His best numbers in IPL have also come against SRH. 

QDK vs SRH: (his most runs against any team) 

Innings 10
Average 41.22

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Other choices: 

SKY (bat first): Mini GL & GL

Pollard & Hardik (bat first): Mini GL & GL

Sid Kaul & Bhuvneshwar (bowling first): GL only 

The numbers game: 

Sandeep has not been wicket-less against MI in his last 6 games. Picked 3 & 2 wickets against them last season. 

Boult picked his best bowling figures this season against SRH. (3/28) 

Qualification scenario for MI & how it affects your Fantasy approach for this game

MI are almost out of the contention, they have to win by 171 runs or more & score at least 200 to go past KKR’s NRR. If they chase, they don’t even have that chance. 

So MI will definitely try to score as many as they can to give them a chance, as a result, eyeing 240-250 they can either be all out giving away wickets to the SRH bowlers or can actually score a mammoth score to keep everyone entertained. So have more SRH bowlers & MI power hitters, whatever happens, your fantasy team should have both scenarios covered or at least one of them which you feel is more likely to happen. 

Yesterday’s Jersey giveaway winner: 

Fastest with the correct answer was Gaurav Vaghela who has won his second jersey in just the last few days, so will be giving a jersey to the second fastest too in this game: 


Today’s question for an IPL jersey: 

Which team will win this match & what will be the margin of victory? (Can choose only one either wickets or runs, not both) 

For example: SRH win by 4 wickets (comment in exact same format)
