Aaron Finch, after missing out on the two occasions, converted his start into a fifty. He was at his destructive best and will look to carry his form in the next game.

Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: RR

Steve Smith has been in great form. He has scored 122 runs at a strike rate of over 150. After missing out in the previous game, he would want to take some responsibility at the top of the batting order.

Jofra Archer added another six to take his tally to 7 sixes in the 15 balls he has faces so far in this IPL. He also returned with figures of 2 for 18 in the last game.

Sanju Samson, the wicket-keeper from Kerala is in ominous touch. Although he missed out in the previous game, he will want to spend some time at the crease before going bonkers as the pitch here is not as good as it is in Sharjah.

Jos Buttler looked good in this short stay at the crease against KKR. He will be looking to convert his start and get a big score for his team.
