The code to join the league is “GC11FS100”.
It is a belter of a track at Sharjah and is evident from the two games that happened here so far. Both the games saw more than 400 runs scored in the match. To add to that, Rajasthan chased a record total here in the last game when they overhauled Punjab’s 223 runs.
The average first innings score is 220 but is it safe? We are not sure. With both teams boasting of big hitters in their ranks, we can expect another cracker of a match.

Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: DC
Rishabh Pant has shown glimpses of what he is capable of doing. He is Delhi’s highest run scorer so far and would love to add some more runs to his name in batting friendly conditions.
Prithvi Shaw, has looked good but he hasn’t capitalized on his starts barring the second game. Sharjah will be a great morale booster if he gets going.
Shikhar Dhawan, the left hander found some form in the last game. He will look to make use of it on a batting friendly track in Sharjah.
Kagiso Rabada has been the best bowler of this year’s IPL so far. He has scalped 7 wickets in 3 games. On a track that will favor the batsmen, he can be a real game changer for your GameChanger11 fantasy team.
Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: KKR
Andre Russell, looked his destructive best in the previous game. Although his innings was cut short by Ankit Rajput while trying to go for another maximum, he will be the real threat for Delhi. Might see him come up the order considering small ground and flat track.
Pat Cummins has been bowling economically in the last two games and he has picked up a wicket each in these games. If he can bowl the way he has been bowling, he can be a great pick.
Eoin Morgan, the England Captain is back in form and has played two consecutive impact innings for KKR. He will want to make the most of the opportunity he gets in the middle.
Shubhman Gill, the talented young batsman showed why he is the most talked about youngster in Indian Cricket. He has scored 124 runs at an average of 62 in three innings. He could be a valuable pick.
