After a 5-month gap, another season of IPL is starting. In the first match, the 5-time champion Mumbai Indians will face Royal Challengers Bangalore. Both teams are equipped with star players. Therefore, the competition between them is very popular among those who play fantasy games. Let’s try to know how the playing conditions will be for this match and which players can get more points in fantasy games.
The pitch at the M Chidambaram Stadium has been helpful to the spinners lately. However, this time the pitch preparation was done under IPL supervision in place of Chennai Super Kings, yet it is expected that the spinners can show amazing here.
Head to head
In the 27 matches between the two teams so far, Mumbai has won 27 matches. Bengaluru won 9 matches. There has been a tie. Last year was the first tie in two matches between them. It was won by RCB in Superover. Mumbai Indians won the second match.
There is an option to choose more than one wicketkeeper on most fantasy league platforms. This match can include two such wicketkeepers in the form of AB de Villiers and Ishaan Kishan who can give you more points as a batsman.
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma can open for their respective teams and not excluding both of them can prove to be a big mistake. Apart from these, either one of Suryakumar Yadav or Devadatta Padikkal can be included.
Two players can be included as all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Glenn Maxwell, Krunal Pandya and Washington Sundar.
The pitch is spin friendly. If you go to Fantasy XI with a combination of three bowlers, then you can choose between Yuzvendra Chahal and Rahul Chahar. For fast bowlers, it may be good to choose a bowler who bowls in death as well as in the beginning. In such a situation, Jaspreet can choose either Bumrah or Kyle Jameson.
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.
