CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Mumbai on October 1, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Punjab vs Mumbai on October 1 Given the way things have gone in the last few matches, the upcoming match between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians promises to be a cracker of a contest. The two teams are going neck and neck on the points table and a win here will push the winners firmly into the top four. These are still early days in the tournament, but both teams would desperately want to put those two points on the board by posting a win here. On performance and recent results, it is hard to pick between the two sides. On paper, however, Mumbai Indians are clearly the stronger side with match-winners available right through the lineup and an excellent bowling attack. For that reason and the ones stated above, Mumbai Indians certainly are the firm favorites to emerge on top in this all-important fixture. Best economical pick – Even though Ravi Bishnoi does not have wealth of experience behind him, he has been terrific in the tournament so far. He was difficult to pick even for the likes of Aaron Finch and AB de Villiers when KXIP took on RCB. Besides, the surface heavily favors the leg-spinners, evident by Rashid Khan & Amit Mishra being highly successful in the previous match played here. With conditions conducive to spin, we expect Bishnoi to be King XI Punjab's best bowler on the day. Top captains & vice captains – Apart from his outing against Delhi Capitals, KL Rahul has looked in fantastic form. Even against Delhi Capitals, he appeared to be batting well before getting castled by Mohit Sharma. In the three matches that Kings XI Punjab have played, he already has a century and a fifty to his name. Even though the surface won't be as easy to bat on as was at Sharjah, KL Rahul shouldn't have much trouble. Given a chance in the last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Ishan Kishan has grabbed the opportunity in style. He rose up to the occasion and played a dazzling knock of 99 runs which helped his team level a mammoth target of 201 runs. Needless to say, the in-form wicketkeeper-batsman will be hoping to repeat the same feat against Punjab. Smart pick – While KL Rahul has gathered all the headlines, Mayank Agarwal, so far, has flown under the radar. Agarwal, in fact, has batted as well as KL Rahul, if not better. He is currently second on the list of leading run-scorers in the tournament and we expect him to continue building on the terrific form. Cautious Pick – Chris Lynn could finally get the nod in this edition of the IPL after Quinton De Kock failed to perform in three consecutive matches. My XI – KL Rahul (Captain), Ishan Kishan (Vice-Captain), Ravi Bishnoi, Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Glenn Maxwell, Trent Boult, Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Rajasthan vs Kolkata on September 30, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Rajasthan vs Kolkata on September 30 Rajasthan Royals have made a thunderous start to the 2020 Indian Premier League, winning both their first two games at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Having recorded the highest-ever run-chase in the history of the event, RR must be brimming with confidence. But after playing in Sharjah, they will now head to Dubai where the conditions will be slightly different if not a whole lot. The Royals, led by Steve Smith are set to lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday, September 30. It’s also KKR’s first game in Dubai after a couple in Abu Dhabi. But both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are pretty similar in terms of conditions. Hence, KKR, more than RR, will have better knowledge about what’s expected. Their seven-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad will also keep them in good stead. Best economical pick – Shubman Gill will remain the batsman to watch out for in the KKR unit. The young batsman played a match-winning knock in the last match against SunRisers Hyderabad. He can provide the much needed composure to the unit. If Gill gets going, KKR can get to a good start as he can lay the foundation for the side. Top captains & vice captains – Steve Smith has been in impressive form in the ongoing IPL, having scored 119 runs with a couple of half-centuries. In Dubai, where clearing the boundaries may not be as easy, his role will be critical. Smith is someone, who likes to maneuver the field and rotate the strike apart from hitting fours and sixes. Against the Knight Riders, Smith has 216 runs from nine games with two half-centuries. Dinesh Karthik might not be in the greatest of form, but his numbers against the Royals can’t be dismissed. In 23 matches, he has 518 runs at an average and strike-rate of 37 and 135.96 respectively. He batted up the order in both the games and he might just want to give it a shot there again. The Royals’ bowling has looked a tad off-colour and DK will look to fancy his chances. Smart pick – Sanju Samson has been the star for the Rajasthan Royals in both their opening matches. With scores of 74 and 85 which saw a legion of towering sixes, Samson has shown the world how to play the game. The team will rely heavily on the 25-year-old’s batting this time too. Cautious Pick – With single-digit scores of 9 & 5, Robin Uthappa hasn’t been among runs in this campaign. However, the team’s winning run is likely to work in his favor and this might be the last chance the former KKR batsman gets before being dropped. My XI – Steve Smith (Captain), Dinesh Karthik (Vice-Captain), Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakaravarthy, Rahul Tewatia, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana

Critical Updates
  • Khaleel Ahmed
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : Khaleel Ahmed was the most expensive bowler against Delhi Capitals, ending with bowling figures of 4-0-43-1. It was only in the final over that Khaleel Ahmed got a wicket in the form of Axar Patel, which was after going for two fours and three sixes. However, SRH will likely persist with him.
  • T Natarajan

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : T Natrajan was one of the shining stars for the SunRisers Hyderabad as he delivered a brilliant spell of death bowling via consistent yorkers. T Natrajan finished with bowling figures of 4-0-25-1, taking the wicket of the dangerous Marcus Stoinis.

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Bhuvneshwar Kumar was one of the most economical bowlers against Delhi Capitals, delivering a spell of 4-0-25-2. Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced the wickets of Prithvi Shaw and Shimron Hetmyer to get things up and running. The 30-year old seamer would be looking forwards to adopting more consistency.

  • Priyam Garg
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : With Manish Pandey struggling for form, Hyderabad could promote Priyam Garg up the order to see how he fares. India’s U-19 captain began promisingly against RCB in the side’s first game; however, was under pressure, given the match situation. Garg did not bat against Delhi Capitals.
  • Abhishek Sharma

    Playing XI : Definitely

    Analysis : Abhishek Sharma will be one of the all-rounders in the team, who is highly capable of producing the big shots in the lower-order. While bowling against Delhi Capitals, Abhishek Sharma could not get a wicket; however, he was reasonably economical. It is unlikely that SRH would replace him for now.
