Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: MI
Rohit Sharma is in good form. He scored a He scored a brilliant fifty in the last game and will be looking to continue from where he left. He has scored 170 runs with 2 fifties. He will be my captain for this game.
Ishan Kishan, has just played two games and is already in the top 10 run getters in the so far. The left-handed batsman is in ominous touch and will be looking to maximize is current run of form.
Kieron Pollard, the big West Indian has found his touch and is at his destructive best. He has already smoked 10 sixes in the tournament so far and with smaller boundaries in Sharjah, you can expect some more.
Hardik Pandya, the Indian all-rounder looked in great touch in the previous game. If he gets an opportunity to bat, we can see some real carnage at Sharjah.
Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: SRH
Jonny Bairstow, after having a good start to the season, hasn’t capitalized on his form. He will be looking to make the most of the short boundaries here in Sharjah.
David Warner would be itching to get a big score after failing to convert his starts in the last two games. He is getting closer to his form with each innings and Sharjah might just help his cause.
Kane Williamson looked good in both the games. He was unlucky to have been run-out in the last game but he is surely a safe pick for your fantasy team.
Rashid Khan is one of the most economical bowlers in the season so far. Although he has only picked up 4 wickets he has kept the batsmen quiet in the middle overs.
