CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Bangalore on April 14,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League TipsHyderabad vs Bangalore on April 14 The sixth match of the VIVO Indian PremierLeague 2021 will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal ChallengersBangalore (RCB). Both the teams have played one game each in this season sofar, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their first game to Kolkata Knight Riders whileRoyal Challengers Bangalore defeated Mumbai Indians in their opening game ofthe season. Sunrisers Hyderabad, after losing their first game of the season,must be looking to get back its momentum by filling the mandatory gaps. DavidWarner was unable to deliver up to the expectations of the team and probablywill try to get things sorted at his end in this match to help his side with aflying start. Sunrisers Hyderabad tried Wriddhiman Saha as their new opener buthe also failed in the first game. In the middle order, Jonny Bairstow played acrucial knock of 55 runs off 40 deliveries, along with Manish Pandey who scored61 runs off 44 deliveries. In the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar andSandeep Sharma proved to be very expensive. The spinners bowled pretty well,Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi picked 2 wickets each. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T.Natarajan got a wicket each to their name. The middle-order, especially thelower middle order of Sunrisers Hyderabad looks weak due to the lack of anyexplosive finisher in the team and Sunrisers Hyderabad must be looking toimprove on that front. Talking about RCB, the team is looking confident afterdefeating one of the strongest teams of the tournament in their very first gameof the season. Also, with the availability of regular opener Devdutt Padikkal, Royal Challengers Bangalore looks even morebalanced now. In their first game, skipper Virat Kohli scored a confident 33runs off 29 deliveries and will try to convert his start into a big inning inthis one. Glenn Maxwell also scored vital 39 runs off 28 deliveries. AB deVilliers scored 48 runs off 27 deliveries and played a big role in the team’svictory. In the bowling department, Harshal Patel pulled a stunner by grabbinga perfect five-wicket haul. Kyle Jamieson and Mohammad Siraj also lookedpositive in their spells. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal proved to be expensive andwill try to improve his performance in this game. Apart from opener DevduttPadikkal, no other changes are expected in the playing XI of Royal ChallengersBangalore. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) havefaced each other on 18 occasions, out of which 10 were won by Hyderabad while 7were won by Bangalore and one of the games ended without any result.Best economical pick – Devdutt Padikkal is returning to the squad after missing thefirst game, he is carrying a pretty good form from his domestic circuit and islikely to convert this form into good performances in the VIVO IPL.Top captains & vice captains – AB de Villiers is always a savior for Bangalore andperforms well under pressure. His knock of 48 runs from just 27 balls againstmighty Mumbai won the game for Bangalore. Since Bangalore has got good middleorder now he can play freely than before. Jonny Bairstow knowshow to pace his innings and he is extending his remarkable form in thistournament as well. He can bat anywhere the team management wants him to. Whenhe is in form, it’s hard to stop him and he is going to be an X-factor againstBangalore.Smart pick– DavidWarner is the opener and captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad, heholds a brilliant record with the bat in VIVO IPL. He failed to perform withthe bat against Kolkata Knight Riders and must be looking to gain his momentumin this match.CautiousPick – ManishPandey’s strike-rate of 138.64 wasn’t ideal during the SunrisersHyderabad’s opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 2021 IndianPremier League. After the Knights set the Orange Army the target of 188, Pandeyplayed until the very end, staying unbeaten on 61 runs off 44 balls. My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), Jonny Bairstow(Vice-Captain), David Warner, Devdutt Padikkal, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, TNatrajan, Harshal Patel, Vijay Shankar, Virat Kohli, Kyle Jamieson

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Mumbai on April 13,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Mumbai on April 13 Kolkata started their 2021 season with a 10-run win against Hyderabad on Sunday. On a slightly slowish surface, they were able to produce a total of 187 runs in their allotted 20 overs, making an early statement with the bat. The Eoin Morgan-led team was also successful in keeping the run rate down while they were bowling, ensuring a comfortable win in the end for themselves. With that being said and done, their next challenge will be against Mumbai, who are the most successful side in the league’s history and also the defending champions.Mumbai, on the other hand, didn’t have an ideal start to this current season. They lost a really close match against Bangalore first up but there are certain areas of concerns as far as their batting is concerned. Even after fetching a good score in the first 15 overs, they were not able to finish well in the death overs. Given the power of players like Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pandya, and Krunal Pandya, they are expected to bounce back in the second game of the season.The history at this point in time doesn’t support Kolkata at all. They have played against Mumbai in 27 matches, but have only managed six victories. The past records would be a huge boost for the Mumbai team, which will be seeking a win badly to get their season up and running as they eye their third title in a row. Best economical pick – Ishan Kishan has been in red-hot form in recent times and has the potential to be one of the best in the ongoing tournament. The left-handed batsman recently impressed for India when he scored a blazing fifty on his debut against England, In the game against RCB too, Kishan looked good and got the start but could not capitalise on it. He scored 28 off 19 balls against RCB. Top captains & vice captains – Suryakumar Yadav has been in the form of his life recently. He was in fine touch with the blade when he made his T20I debut against England recently. He carried on that superb knick and was also seen timing the ball brilliantly during his short innings of 31 runs from 23 balls. When he faces his former team Kolkata, he would be eyeing a big score, something which he is totally capable of producing.Nitish Rana was seen at his best when he was opening the innings in the first match of the season against Hyderabad. He played a brilliant knock, attacking the new ball bowlers and then later taking on the spinners in the middle overs. He ended with a score of 80 from 54 balls. Interestingly, this was his third score of 80 in the last six IPL innings. His match-winning knock was also his fourth fifty in six matches opening the innings for KKR. With form under his belt, Rana is likely to cash in and get another substantial score for his side. Smart pick – Shubman Gill is one batsman that Kolkata heavily depends on when it comes to giving them a good start. The talented opener missed out on an opportunity to get a big score in the opening match but would be eyeing one against Mumbai. Interestingly, his highest score in the Indian T20 League is against Mumbai, a knock of 76 which he had played in 2019 at the Eden Gardens. Cautious Pick – In a league as highly competitive as the IPL, Chris Lynn has often found himself underutilized. He was a part of the team in 2020 but did not get a single game. In 2021, he got a chance not because he was the first-choice opener, but because the Indians’ first-choice opener was forced to sit out owing to his quarantine regulations. Even though he scored a 35-ball 49 on his MI debut, with de Kockavailable, there is little to no chance that Lynn will find a spot for him. My XI – Suryakumar Yadav (Captain), Nitish Rana (Vice-Captain), Ishan Kishan, Shubhman Gill, Varun Chakravarthy, Pat Cummins, Jasprit Bumrah, Andre Russell, Rohit Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Prasidh Krishna

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Rajasthan vs Punjab on April 12,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Rajasthan vs Punjab on April 12 Rajasthan Royals andPunjab Kings share a lot of similarities. They are two teams who played the role of bottom-dwellers in the last couple of seasons, but have made some interesting changes for this season. The Royals have made Sanju Samson, a player who has been with the franchise for a long time, their captain. They have also added to their balance by signing Chris Morris, as he is a player that can win matches both with his batting and his bowling. Punjab Kings lacked bowling firepower last season, something that should not be a problem for them this year, as they have added two talented Aussie pace guns in Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith. All of that being said, it will come down to the execution of game plans, which will make the difference between the two sides. Best economical pick – Rahul Tewatia was a find of the season for Rajasthan last year. He scored 255 runs at a brilliant strike-rate of close to 140 and then picked up 10 wickets as well. He got picked in the Indian team as well only for his fitness to become a hindrance. He will once again be key for Rajasthan and can turn out to be an X-Factor player in Cricbattle Fantasy teams. Top captains & vice captains – There is little surprise in this aspect. KL Rahul won the Orange Cap last season and led from the front for Punjab. Unfortunately, his team couldn’t make it to the playoffs. Wasim Jaffer last week stated that a different Rahul will be on display this time around and it will be interesting to see if the Punjab skipper comes out all guns blazing. He is definitely a player to have in your Fantasy team. Ben Stokes opened the innings in the last few matches of the previous season and if Rajasthan continue with him, the all-rounder can earn a lot of Fantasy points. Stokes can go aggressive upfront in the powerplay to score quick runs and then bowl his quota of four overs as well. Smart pick – Chris Morrismight have been sold for a hefty price tag, but since he is a player that bowls at the death and is also a great finisher, the price tag is justified. His bat hasn’t made much noise recently, but in his last 5 T20 games, he has picked up 5 wickets, while also being economical in 4 of those matches. Cautious Pick – PBKS have a couple of selection dilemmas when it comes to the middle order. Dawid Malan is the No.1 ranked T20I batsman in the world, but it will be difficult for the team management to fit three overseas batsmen in the playing XI after splurging on foreign fast bowlers in the auction. Moreover, Malan's ideal batting position is in the top 4, and moving Pooran down to No. 5 might minimize the Caribbean batsman's impact. So Dawid Malan might not feature in the Playing XI. My XI – KL Rahul (Captain), Ben Stokes (Vice-Captain), Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Chris Gayle, Mayank Aggarwal, Y Jaiswal, Ravi Bishnoi, Shreyas Gopal, Mohammad Shami, Sanju Samson

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Kolkata on April 11,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Kolkata on April 11 The 2021 edition of the Indian T20 League has started with a bang and in the third game of the competition, Hyderabad will take on Kolkata. Hyderabad finished 3rd in the points table last season, but lacked the cutting edge needed to get their hands on the trophy. Hence, in this season, it will be all about avoiding the mistakes they committed in the last season. For Kolkata, it will be about a revival. They are one of the most successful teams of this tournament, but have struggled in the last few years. David Warner and Kane Williamson are among the key players for the Hyderabad side. The team though is known for their excellent bowling attack comprising Bhuvneshwar, Rashid Khan, T Natarajan among others. Kolkata didn’t play their best cricket last year and their skipper Eoin Morgan will be looking forward to take the team to the title this time around. Best economical pick – Nitish Rana had a decent outing in IPL 2020 where he scored 352 runs in 14 games with the help of three fifties. Rana has the ability to play both pace and spin with ease and also has the ability to play the big shots at any stage of the game. He is likely to bat at number three for KKR and could play a key role in deciding the outcome of the game. Top captains & vice captains – No captain in the IPL has delivered with the bat as consistently as David Warner. The southpaw will be integral to Sunrisers Hyderabad’s fortunes in IPL 2021 too. Last year, he was the highest run-scorer for Sunrisers Hyderabad, scoring 548 runs in 16 games. Under his captaincy, SRH made it to the playoffs last year and he will be keen to guide his team to another IPL title this year. Warner will be looking to start IPL 2021 on a strong note with the bat. Shubman Gill will be garnering a lot of attention this year after facing criticism in the last IPL for his poor strike-rate. He had his most prolific IPL season so far last year when he scored 440 runs in 14 games. It was the first time Gill managed to score more than 300 runs in an IPL. He, however, faced criticism for his strike-rate of 117.96. Gill’s failure to provide quick starts at the top was one of the reasons behind KKR’s struggle last year. The youngster would be eyeing a good start to the season to set the tone. Smart pick – Sunrisers Hyderabad’s consistent run in the IPL has been built on performances by their star players like David Warner and Rashid Khan. The Afghanistan spinner is one of the best T20 players in the world and has been a top performer in the IPL. In his 62 IPL matches, he has picked up 75 wickets. His economy has been 6.24. On top of that, he can also score some handy runs down the order. His IPL strike rate is 149.46. Cautious Pick – Dinesh Karthik had a forgettable IPL 2020 season in the United Arab Emirates. The wicketkeeper-batsman played all 14 league games for the Knight Riders, but managed to score just 169 runs at a disappointing average of 14.08. Karthik recorded only one half-century in the entire 2020 season. My XI – David Warner (Captain), Shubman Gill (Vice-Captain), Nitish Rana, Rashid Khan, Varun Chakravarthy, T Natarajan, Jason Holder, Wridhiman Saha, Eoin Morgan, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Delhi on April 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Delhi on April 10 One of the most successful teams of this competition, Chennai will start their Indian T20 League 2021 campaign on Saturday. For their first match, they will take on Delhi – a team that hasn’t been as successful over the years, but they showed their calibre in the last season. The Delhi side received a huge blow even before the start of the competition, with their captain Shreyas Iyer ruled out for the season with an injury. But they have made additions to fill his void, with Steve Smith likely to play a key role. Chennai have added to their all-round strength by picking up Moeen Ali in the auction. Best economical pick – Marcus Stoinis had played a huge role inDelhi Capitals’ runners-up finish in the previous season of the IPL. He had scored 352 runs at a strike rate of 148.52. He had also been effective with the ball picking up 13 wickets at an average of 21.76. He is a terrific pick as he can contribute with both bat and ball for Delhi. Top captains & vice captains – Everything Rishabh Pant has touched recently has turned into gold. After showcasing some tremendous performances with the bat in Test cricket, the left-handed batsman continued his form in the recent white-ball series for India. He was seen in devastating form in the ODI series against England where he struck a 40-ball 77 and a 62-ball 78 in the two innings which he played. Given the fact that he will also shoulder the responsibility of Delhi’s captaincy, it seems only obvious for him to set up his game and play with more freedom. If he gets going in the first match, it could be a great sign for Delhi for the rest of the season and considering his recent form, that doesn’t seem too unlikely.Faf du Plessis was just one of the few positives in an otherwise dismal IPL 2020 for CSK. While most of his teammates struggled to score runs consistently, the former South Africa skipper looked class apart. He finished IPL 2020 as CSK’s highest run-scorer, scoring 449 runs in 13 games with the help of 4 fifties. He was the only CSK batsman to touch the 400-run mark last year. Du Plessis will be an integral part of the team once again this year and would be looking to start the season on a high. Smart pick – Ravindra Jadeja has been out of action since the start of this year. He had fractured his thumb which kept him away from cricket after the Australian tour. But, he will be returning on the field in the first match of this IPL having recovered. Before his injury, the all-rounder was in some good form in both the disciplines, especially batting. He averaged 46 with the bat in the previous season along with a strike rate of 171.85. The Saurashtra player will be upbeat to begin this season with a bang as well. Cautious Pick – Umesh Yadav hasn’t been the most successful bowler in IPL. His record looks average and is a testament to his mercurial style of bowling. More importantly, he seems to be more suited to the orthodox cricket of longer formats than the more innovative style of T20. My XI – Rishabh Pant (Captain), Faf du Plessis (Vice-Captain), Ravindra Jadeja, Marcus Stoinis, Suresh Raina, Prithvi Shaw, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, R Ashwin, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Bangalore on April 9,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Bangalore on April 9 Match one of the IPL 2021 will see the defending champions Mumbai Indians take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday. Five-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians are out to conquer uncharted territory as they try and make it a hat-trick of title triumphs. The Rohit Sharma-led side is arguably the best team in the competition. For their opponents, Royal Challengers Bangalore, yet another campaign begins amid high hopes and expectations, which have now been compounded by a couple of big-money signings. Apart from the usual suspects Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, the RCB now possess the explosiveness of Glenn Maxwell in the middle-order. The Mumbai Indians are the clear favorites heading into the game, owing to their superior balance and depth. However, one cannot take a team with Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers lightly. Either way, a cracking game of T20 cricket beckons as IPL action returns to India. Best economical pick– Krunal Pandya was the first name on my team as soon as I saw the venue. Given MI's sparse list of spinners, Krunal's four overs will be essential for the team. That, added to his batting prowess, makes him a safe and powerful bet for the opener. Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli will have the spotlight firmly on him in IPL 2021. The RCB skipper has announced that he'll open the batting for the side this year, and his stellar IPL record as opener has given fans great optimism. The 2016 IPL saw Kohli open the batting for a portion of the tournament, and he smashed 973 runs en route to the Orange Cap, the MVP award and of course the IPL final. If he replicates his performances from that edition even slightly, RCB fans are in for a treat. Suryakumar Yadav is in the form of his life. The MI No. 3 has made an immediate impact at the international level and this IPL will present him with an opportunity to seal a spot in India's squad for the T20 World Cup. The Chepauk surface for the IPL 2021 season opener isn't expected to turn much, but if it does, arguably the best player of spin in the country will be MI's trump card. Smart pick – Ishan Kishan was MI's leading run-scorer in IPL 2020 despite missing a couple of matches with injury. The young southpaw had a breakout campaign that saw him get a maiden call-up to the Indian team. Expected to bat at either No. 3 or No. 4 for MI in IPL 2021, Kishan could build on his brilliant showing last year and establish himself as an Indian team regular. The 22-year-old is in good form and has the team around him to play freely. Cautious Pick – Adam Zampa is set to miss the first few days of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)’s training camp ahead of IPL 2021. He will also not be available for RCB's opening game against Mumbai Indians. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Suryakumar Yadav (Vice-Captain), Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya, Devdutt Padikal, Trent Boult, W Sundar, Y Chahal, Daniel Christian, K Richardson, AB de Villiers

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Delhi on November 10,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Delhi on November 10 Mumbai Indians came into the 2020 Indian Premier League as the defending champions. And they have played like one thus far. After topping the points table in the league stage, Rohit Sharma and Co made the final, beating the Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier 1 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. On Tuesday, November 10, MI will again face the Capitals in Dubai. Having already beaten the Capitals three times in the ongoing edition, MI would be starting as the favorites. However, Shreyas Iyer’s DC will be high on confidence as they. The Capitals, in the Qualifier 2, got past the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs to make their maiden final of the IPL. Having already waited 13 years, they will be desperate to cross the final hurdle, defying the odds. Best economical pick – Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the brightest spots in the current edition of IPL, having the penchant for consistent run-scoring and impactful knocks. In 15 games, Yadav has 461 runs with four half-centuries at a compelling average of 41.91 and a strike rate of 148.23. The 30-year old’s ability to soak in the pressure would be very critical in the big final. Top captains & vice captains – Quinton de Kock has been the standout batsman for MI in the T20 tournament. The left-hander has scored 483 runs from 15 matches at an average and strike-rate of 37.15 and 139.59 respectively. The Mumbai-based team has been able to make use of the powerplay on the back of some stunning knocks from the southpaw. In the crunch game on Tuesday, MI will be hoping for him to fire again. Shikhar Dhawan is one of the contenders to get the Orange Cap after he scored a half-century against the Sunrisers on Sunday. The left-hander is only 68 runs away from toppling Kings XI Punjab’s KL Rahul, who’s sitting on the top with 670 runs. Dhawan started the tournament in a jittery manner but now has 603 runs from 16 matches at an average and strike-rate of 46.38 and 145.65. Smart pick – After a disheartening show in qualifier 1 against MI, Kagiso Rabada was back at his absolute best. In the nervy 19th over, where the game could have gone anywhere, Rabada ensured that it went Delhi’s way. He picked 3 wickets in one over. The pacer has got back the purple cap from Jasprit Bumrah. Cautious Pick – Ravichandran Ashwin claimed Rohit Sharma’s wicket for a first-ball duck in the first qualifier in Dubai. Rohit Sharma has had an ordinary tournament so fair and would be keen to score big runs in the final to get in the form ahead of the Australia tour. In 11 matches, the 33-year old has only 264 runs at 24.00. My XI – Quinton de Kock (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan (Vice-Captain), Kagiso Rabada, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent Boult, Marcus Stoinis, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Ishan Kishan, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Delhi vs Hyderabad on November 8,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Delhi vs Hyderabad on November 8 Sunrisers Hyderabad might have had their stutters, but of late, they are on a role. After decimating table-toppers Mumbai Indians by 10 wickets in their last league game, David Warner and Co knocked Royal Challengers Bangalore out, winning the Eliminator by six wickets after being asked to chase down 132. It goes without saying the Sunrisers have peaked at the apt time. The Orange Army would be in for another must-win game, this time against the Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier 2 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, November 8. Prior to the game, SRH can take heart from the fact that they defeated Shreyas Iyer and Co both times in the league stage. The Capitals, on the other hand, would be looking to make amends after their 57-run loss to Mumbai. Best economical pick – T Natrajan, the vital cog of SunRisers Hyderabad, bowled an unplayable yorker to AB de Villiers to take the prized wicket of the Mr. 360. He also picked the wicket of Washington Sundar to finish off the game early on for them. The pacer will have to repeat a similar performance to win against DC. Top captains & vice captains – Shreyas Iyer is someone; a team can depend on without many fears. He knows the art of playing at different gears. In the ongoing edition, the youngster has 433 runs at an average and strike-rate of 30.92 and 123.36 respectively. The Capitals’ batting has shown signs of inconsistency and Iyer can’t afford to let his guard down. The SRH bowling is in excellent form and Iyer will be in for a challenging task. Kane Williamson’s calm and cool head helped SunRiser Hyderabad to take the game home in the eliminator. Although Yuzvendra Chahal and Adam Zampa created pressure with dot balls, he remained focused and scored an unbeaten 50 to be the match-winner for the side. He will play a pivotal role in the second qualifier. Smart pick – Rashid Khan has tormented the Capitals’ batters thus far in the tournament. In two games, he has had figures of 8-0-21-6 at an economy rate of 2.62. Needless to say, the DC batters have found the SRH spinner a tough nut to crack. Overall, in 15 games, the Afghanistan spinner has 19 wickets to show for his efforts. Like the DC batsmen, even the other sides have found it difficult while facing him. Cautious Pick – Came in as the replacement of Wriddhiman Saha, Goswami played the first match of the season for SunRisers Hyderabad against RCB. Hewas impressive behind the stumps but was out for a duck while batting. As SRHhas not updated about Saha’s availability, he has the big responsibility to fill the huge shoes of the veteran. My XI – Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Kane Williamson (Vice-Captain), Rashid Khan, T Natarajan, Anrich Nortje, Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, Marcus Stoinis, Rishabh Pant, Abdul Samad, Prithvi Shaw

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Bangalore on November 6,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Bangalore on November 6 Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore have had pretty similar campaigns thus far in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League. Both teams won seven out of their 14 matches in the league stage and would now be locking horns in the Eliminator on Friday, November 6 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. In the first round, both teams beat each other once. The Challengers would be a tad low on confidence after the Delhi Capitals beat them by six wickets. Virat Kohli and Co had a bit of a stutter in the second half of the first round. As far as the Sunrisers are concerned, they must be brimming with confidence after their 10-wicket victory over table-toppers Mumbai Indians. An absolute cracking encounter seems to be in the offing. Best economical pick – Devdutt Padikkal in his maiden IPL season is RCB’s leading run-scorer by the end of the league stage. The left-hander has amassed 472 runs in 14 matches with 5 fifties. He is coming off a half-century against Delhi and will have the responsibility to give his team a strong start in an important game. Top captains & vice captains – AB de Villiers is once again having an AB-esque season. His numbers in IPL 2020 are staggering. The magician has scored 398 runs at an average of 44 and a strike rate of 163 with 4 half-centuries. Time and again he has bailed Royal Challengers Bangalore out of a hole and put them in a winning position. The huge onus lay on the South-African in the clash against SRH. Manish Pandey has been in excellent form and is one of the reasons behind SRH’s decent show thus far in the tournament. In 13 innings, the right-handed batsman scored 380 runs at an average and strike-rate of 34.54 and 127.51 respectively. He has lent solidity to the Sunrisers’ middle-order. In SRH’s previous game against RCB, Pandey looked good and played his strokes fluently before getting out. Smart pick – Yuzvendra Chahal is currently fourth in the list of Purple Cap holders with 20 wickets from 14 matches. In fact, the leg-spinner is thus far the most successful tweaker in the tournament. In RCB’s first game against SRH, he also turned out to be the Player of the Match, picking up three wickets. Even in their next outing, he didn’t flatter to deceive. Another decent spell would be expected of him. Cautious Pick – Isuru Udana might face the axe if Navdeep Saini returns to fitness. However, he could also be benched if RCB decides to bring Moeen Ali in the eleven. Udana’s numbers this season are not at all confidence-boosting for the management. He has picked 8 wickets in 10 matches at an expensive economy of 9.72. My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), Manish Pandey (Vice-Captain), Y Chahal, Devdut Padikkal, T Natarajan, Washington Sundar, Chris Morris, Wridhiman Saha, Virat Kohli, David Warner, Josh Philipe

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Delhi on November 5,
CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Delhi on November 5 Mumbai Indians, the defending champions, have defended their Indian Premier League title with utmost dominance thus far. Though they lost to the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 wickets in their last league game, they managed to finish atop the points table. Rohit Sharma and Co are now scheduled to play the Qualifier 1 against the Delhi Capitals on Thursday, November 5, in Dubai. In the league stage, MI got past the Capitals both times. In fact, in their last meeting, Mumbai eased past DC by nine wickets. Shreyas Iyer’s men won’t be low in confidence though after beating the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous match. The Capitals also ceased their four-match losing streak, much to their relief. But beating an in-form MI won’t be easy for them by any means. Best economical pick – Suryakumar Yadav is having his breakthrough IPL season. He is not only amassing runs but doing it at a quick rate. Yadav has scored 410 runs in 13 innings at a strike rate of 150 and has recorded 3 half-centuries. The right-hander has a 360-degree range and has shown a great deal of calmness and maturity in run-chases. Top captains & vice captains – Quinton de Kock is currently the leading run-scorer for Mumbai this season and has given MI quick starts throughout. He has scored 443 runs at an average of 36.9 and a strike rate of 138. The South-African took extra responsibility in the absence ofRohit Sharma. Now with Sharma back in the team, the left-hander will have more freedom to play his shots. The 27-year-old has been sharp behind the stumps. Shreyas Iyer sparkled with a thunderous 88* against KKRin Sharjah. But apart from that, he has looked a tad off colour. However, that he has scored 421 runs in 14 innings at an average of 32.38 with two fifties should give confidence. DC haven’t played in the final for a number of years and the youngster will be looking to play a captain’s knock and guide his team. Smart pick – Rohit Sharma returned from his hamstring injury the other day, but he got out cheaply. However, keeping in mind the potential he has, he can take on DC’s star-studded bowling attack with ease. In the 10 matches he has played, the 33-year-old has notched 264 runs at an average of 26.40. Moreover, the right-hander has the experience of playing at the big stage across most tournaments. Cautious Pick – Shimron Hetmyer has given a disappointing performance. In their second meeting against MI, he lost his wicket for 11 runs after in a hurry to play a shot. He was dropped against RCB. My XI – Quinton de Kock (Captain), Shreyas Iyer (Vice-Captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Jasprit Bumrah, Anrich Nortje, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Chahar, Marcus Stoinis
