Fantasy Captain Options
Virat Kohli: The run machine, he is the first option to pick the caption.
ABD: The player who can hit 360’. Solid batsman. There is no question about his fitness but last year wasn’t good enough like earlier seasons. He may fail in this match. Keep him as a caption in Grand league.
Aaron Finch: Excellent player in a very good form. Can be good option for caption. Either he can score big or flop completely. Can drop few teams in small league. He has played in all 8 franchises in his 10 years of IPL career.
Chahal: I am not kidding you! Even though the pitch support pace last match Ravi Bishnoi and Ashwin bowled really well for me Chahal is the only reliable bowler in RCB team past few years.
SRH Captain options
Plenty of captions option available for SRH.
David Warner and Johnny Bairstow: These two can be good captain pick in small league. They may be rival in their own country teams but when it comes to IPL they play together very well. Good understanding partners. Can be good option to keep both of them as C and VC in the same team.
Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi: This spin duo can pick wickets in any sort of ground. Nabi can do the finisher role with the bat. Can expect some quick fire in the death overs. Rashid number one spin bowler in the world. Can bat but this match he won’t get chance to bat on.
Manish Pandey: A perfect middle order batsman who can switch to hitting role when needed. Can be good VC option as there are lot of Captain options available.
