The teams: Royal Challengers Bangalore v Sunrisers Hyderabad. RCB recently bought Shane Watson to add to a star-studded batting line-up consisting of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. However, RCB’s bowling has always been their weak link and his bowling along with that of Samuel Badree will be a welcome addition. On paper, SRH boast a strong batting line up with Dhawan, Warner and Eoin Morgan, but one can’t help but think that this trio is badly out of form. It will be interesting to see if Trent Boult gets a game.
The Venue: The Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. A small ground, covered in RCB colours. Expect a good batting wicket. This is the same ground where the uber talented Rohit Sharma smashed his first ODI double century.
Our picks for your fantasy cricket team
Chris Gayle – Honestly, this is a no brainer. Everybody knows Chris Gayle is a Champion! Who can forget his 100 against England in the first game of the WT20? He can make or break a fantasy cricket team so leave him out of your teams at your own peril!
David Warner – “Switch Hit” Warner has a point to prove. With Usman Khwaja displacing him from his usual batting position in the Australian team, the swashbuckling opener will go all out to prove he belongs right at the top of the order.
Yuzvendra Chahal – Our *wildcard* pick for the game, Chahal has been a fixture in the RCB side for the last two years. He consistently picks up 1 or 2 wickets per game and is a real bargain. This crafty leg-spinner will be a solid pick for your fantasy side!
