Dream11 Tips and Tricks
Wicketkeeping: It will be a tricky choice to pick between the two solid keepers – Quinton de Kock or Rishabh Pant. But in-form de Kock is anyday a big threat to the opposition than Pant. Also, de Kock’s batting form and his ability to read the situation better makes him a valuable asset for the side.
Batting: Both Mumbai and Delhi boast of some of the biggest names of world cricket ranging from – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya. As the Mumbai track is known to assist the batters a little more – it would be ideal to pick batsmen who can dominate from the word go. Rohit, Suryakumar, Hardik, de Kock, Dhawan and big-hitting Pollard would be an ideal choice for the batsmen’s role.
Bowling: Keeping the nature of Feroz Shah Kotla track in mind, the role of Jasprit Bumrah, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane become very crucial for their respective sides. The young Axar Patel can be picked as the spinner in the side.
All-Rounder: It’s a no-brainer keeping in mind the smashing all-round abilities of Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, no individual will even dare to drop him from his/her fantasy XI.
