IPL Fantasy Cricket Tip #2: Kolkata Knightriders v Delhi Daredevils

The teams: Kolkata Knight Riders vs. Delhi Daredevils. Establishment vs. Youth. Superstars vs. Unknowns. Both franchises that have been playing since the first IPL, but the Delhi team has changed its composition more times than a Delhi taxi driver changes lanes. KKR will be gunning for their third title, compared to Delhi who have been in the bottom 2 for 3 years in a row. On paper, though, the line-ups still appear pretty evenly matched with Delhi looking for a fresh start under their capable new captain, Zaheer Khan.

The Venue: Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Typically a reasonably high-scoring wicket, this ground was favourable towards the side chasing in the T20 World Cup, likely due to the dew factor. Expect the captain who wins the toss to bowl first.

IPL Fantasy Cricket Tips #1 : MI v RPS

The teams : Mumbai Indians v Rising Pune Supergiants. Mumbai Indians are defending champions and have won the IPL twice. The Pune Supergiants, on the other hand, are the new kids on the block. They have some big names led by Captain Cool, M.S. Dhoni but it might take them some time to gel. Both teams have players capable of some serious fireworks. We expect a high scoring match so stock up on batsmen and all-rounders in your fantasy cricket team.

The Venue : The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Wankhede is a super high scoring ground where last year India conceded over 400 to South Africa in a one day game and, more recently, struggled to defend 193 against the West Indies. Not a good place to be a bowler!
