Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top picks: 

Avesh Khan (bowling first): Because we’re playing at the new Sharjah, and going with a batsman as C-VC is always risky here, Avesh Khan bowling first is a good captaincy choice. Consistently bowling at the death, has good numbers against KKR & also at the venue. 

Avesh Khan vs KKR:

Avesh Khan at Sharjah:

SR8

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Lockie Ferguson (bowling first): Again, the same strategy of backing a bowler or an AR instead of going with a batsman as C/VC. Ferguson bowling first will be an excellent choice once again. 

Ferguson vs DC:

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Anrich Nortje (bowling first): Bowling exceptionally well and even on slowish Sharjah wicket will be a big wicket taking threat once again. 

Nortje vs KKR:

Nortje at Sharjah:

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Varun Chakravarthy (bowling second): A lot depends on how KKR use Varun in this game, but still, bowling second he will be a top captaincy choice. Has a five-for to his name against DC, in that game he was used very late in the innings & as a result got 5 wickets. But you’re not sure, if Narine will be used in the same role in this game. 

Varun vs DC (bowling second):

Varun at Sharjah (bowling second)

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL. 

Sunil Narine (bowling first): After what he did in the last game with both bat & ball, has to be one of the top captaincy choices in small leagues. Had a similar game against DC at the same venue as well. Again, his wicket taking opportunities will massively depend on how & in which phase KKR use him. 

Narine at Sharjah: (bowling first)

Narine vs DC (bowling first)

SR15 (27 in 2nd inns)

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Prithvi Shaw: Not the most ideal wicket for his style of play but as we discussed earlier as well, the best time to bat in these conditions is in the PP when the ball is new & hard. Will be playing against a side that he has absolutely smashed in past. 

Prithvi Shaw vs KKR: (His most runs, best average, best SR, most fifties, most sixes against an IPL team)

Inns 5

Average 64.6

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL.
