In the 7th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Delhi Capitals will take on the Rajasthan Royals on Thursday. Power hitters are expected to dominate this match to be held on the batting friendly pitch of Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. Apart from these, fast bowlers capable of variance in speed can also be the key to success. Let’s try to know which players in Mumbai’s playing conditions can get more points in fantasy games.
Three wicketkeepers as Pant, Samson and Butler
Most fantasy game apps offer the option of choosing three wicketkeepers. In this match you can choose all three options. Sanju Samson and Jose Balter are listed as wicketkeepers from Rajasthan. Also, both of them bat in the top-3. Delhi captain and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant also came in at number three in the first match. All three are capable of playing big innings as well as being power hitters.
Shikhar-Shaw pair must be ignored
Both Delhi openers Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are in excellent form. It would not be right to ignore both these batsmen. Apart from these, Liam Livingstone may get a chance from Rajasthan. The choice of Livingstone, who specializes in sixes, can be a good choice. If you want a batsman to play in the top-3, then you can choose Manan Vohra instead of Livingstone.
Two foreign all-rounders can work
Even though in the first match of Rajasthan, captain Sanju Samson refused to give a strike to Chris Maurice on the crucial occasion, but you can include Maurice in your team. Maurice is the top wicket taker in Rajasthan’s team. Apart from this, his strike rate in batting is close to 150. Apart from him, Marcus Stoinis can be chosen as the other all-rounder.
Sakariya can do amazing again
Chetan Sakaria of Rajasthan bowled brilliantly against Punjab. On the pitch where the experienced bowlers were giving runs from the 9–10 economy, Sakaria bowled with a 7-run economy. He can be accompanied by another fast bowler in the form of Avesh Khan of Delhi. Ravichandran Ashwin may have been expensive in the first match, but you can expect him, two consecutive matches will not be bad for him.
Pitch Report: This pitch scored above 220 twice in the last four innings. The lowest score is 187 runs. That is, the pitch will be helpful for batting.
Captain and Deputy Captain: Any player batting in the top-3 can be made captain. In such a situation, Jos Buttler or Shikhar Dhawan can be good captaincy options. You can also choose any all-rounder as the vice-captain.
Note: Suggestions have been given based on recent records and prospects. In the match, these assessments can be right or wrong. While choosing the team, keep in mind the risks associated with fantasy league.
