Important News :
- McCullum and Sundar have practiced well on the eve of the game at nets. Moeen Ali’s spot is at risk.
- Yusuf Pathan from Sunrisers Hyderabad had nice practice session at nets but he might still not play this game. As Yusuf Pathan was suffering through soreness, he didn’t play last match.
- Saha is recovering from shoulder injury and should back in the team if the team feels he is fully recovered.
Wicket Keeper :
- Pathiv Patel is only the safe option and he should be direct choice.
- From RCB Kohli and AB de Villiers are mandatory. Mandeep Singh is another good option and he can save credits.
- From SRH Williamson and Dhawan are mandatory. Hales,Hooda and Pandey are other good players and in case top order fails they can play well and they are credit savers.
All Rounders :
- From RCB Grandhomme may be a safe option. Try Moeen Ali only in grand leagues.
- From SRH Shakib is good option.
- From RCB Umesh, Southee, Siraj and Chahal all are good options and take atleast two.
- From SRH Bhuvneshwar, Rashid and Sandeep should be safe options.
You will face lot of credit problems in this match and it impossible to select all important players in one team. So it’s better to rotate them in your teams.
