AB de Villiers has been in great form. Although he didn’t get to bat much in the last game, he has already amassed 146 runs at a strike rate of 178.04 in 4 matches.
Virat Kohli the king is back in form and he would like to make the most of it to help RCB continue with their winning momentum. He will be my captain for this game.
Yuzi Chahal has been bowling brilliantly and remains the best RCB bowler in this season. He took 3 wickets in the last game and has picked up 8 wickets in the tournament so far. He is a must pick.
Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: DC
Rishabh Pant has shown glimpses of what he is capable of doing. He mustered 38 runs in just 17 balls. Although he would have liked to score more but this sure is encouraging signs for him and Delhi.
Prithvi Shaw, made full use of short boundaries and a flat deck to score yet another half century cracking 4 sixes and 4 fours. He would want to score a few more against his National side captain.
Shreyas Iyer, the Delhi Captain, scored an unbeaten 88 in the last game. He has had a good IPL so far scoring 170 runs striking at 150.44 and averaging 56.66.
Kagiso Rabada has been the best bowler of this year’s IPL so far. He has scalped 8 wickets in 4 games. He didn’t have a good last game but that’s what Sharjah does to a bowler. He will be steaming in against the RCB to look to get some wickets early on.
