Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: KKR
Andre Russell didn’t have a great outing the other night but he will be eager to hit some balls out of the park come tomorrow.
Sunil Narine was economical with the ball and also picked up a wicket. Although he would be a risky option for captain as his batting is not consistent but he will surely give you points with his bowling.
Dinesh Karthik, the KKR Captain, came in to bat at No.3 and if bats there more often, he’ll get time to settle and then unleash his power hitting.
Shubhman Gill is a talented young batsman. He has the ability to adapt on any pitch. The onus will be on him to provide KKR with good starts.
Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: SRH
Jonny Bairstow scored a well compiled 61 in the first match before he was out done by Chahal. He is in top form and is definitely the perfect candidate for Captain.
David Warner could be a risky choice considering his current form but his record in the IPL has been phenomenal. He will be looking to back his skills score some runs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been exceptional with the ball over the years. Although he went wicketless in the first game, he conceded only 25 runs in his 4 overs. He can be a good vice-captain option.
Rashid Khan has a knack of picking wickets. He will get some help from the slow track at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
