CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Hyderabad vs Bangalore on April 14, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League TipsHyderabad vs Bangalore on April 14 The sixth match of the VIVO Indian PremierLeague 2021 will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal ChallengersBangalore (RCB). Both the teams have played one game each in this season sofar, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their first game to Kolkata Knight Riders whileRoyal Challengers Bangalore defeated Mumbai Indians in their opening game ofthe season. Sunrisers Hyderabad, after losing their first game of the season,must be looking to get back its momentum by filling the mandatory gaps. DavidWarner was unable to deliver up to the expectations of the team and probablywill try to get things sorted at his end in this match to help his side with aflying start. Sunrisers Hyderabad tried Wriddhiman Saha as their new opener buthe also failed in the first game. In the middle order, Jonny Bairstow played acrucial knock of 55 runs off 40 deliveries, along with Manish Pandey who scored61 runs off 44 deliveries. In the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar andSandeep Sharma proved to be very expensive. The spinners bowled pretty well,Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi picked 2 wickets each. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T.Natarajan got a wicket each to their name. The middle-order, especially thelower middle order of Sunrisers Hyderabad looks weak due to the lack of anyexplosive finisher in the team and Sunrisers Hyderabad must be looking toimprove on that front. Talking about RCB, the team is looking confident afterdefeating one of the strongest teams of the tournament in their very first gameof the season. Also, with the availability of regular opener Devdutt Padikkal, Royal Challengers Bangalore looks even morebalanced now. In their first game, skipper Virat Kohli scored a confident 33runs off 29 deliveries and will try to convert his start into a big inning inthis one. Glenn Maxwell also scored vital 39 runs off 28 deliveries. AB deVilliers scored 48 runs off 27 deliveries and played a big role in the team’svictory. In the bowling department, Harshal Patel pulled a stunner by grabbinga perfect five-wicket haul. Kyle Jamieson and Mohammad Siraj also lookedpositive in their spells. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal proved to be expensive andwill try to improve his performance in this game. Apart from opener DevduttPadikkal, no other changes are expected in the playing XI of Royal ChallengersBangalore. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) havefaced each other on 18 occasions, out of which 10 were won by Hyderabad while 7were won by Bangalore and one of the games ended without any result.Best economical pick – Devdutt Padikkal is returning to the squad after missing thefirst game, he is carrying a pretty good form from his domestic circuit and islikely to convert this form into good performances in the VIVO IPL.Top captains & vice captains – AB de Villiers is always a savior for Bangalore andperforms well under pressure. His knock of 48 runs from just 27 balls againstmighty Mumbai won the game for Bangalore. Since Bangalore has got good middleorder now he can play freely than before. Jonny Bairstow knowshow to pace his innings and he is extending his remarkable form in thistournament as well. He can bat anywhere the team management wants him to. Whenhe is in form, it’s hard to stop him and he is going to be an X-factor againstBangalore.Smart pick– DavidWarner is the opener and captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad, heholds a brilliant record with the bat in VIVO IPL. He failed to perform withthe bat against Kolkata Knight Riders and must be looking to gain his momentumin this match.CautiousPick – ManishPandey’s strike-rate of 138.64 wasn’t ideal during the SunrisersHyderabad’s opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 2021 IndianPremier League. After the Knights set the Orange Army the target of 188, Pandeyplayed until the very end, staying unbeaten on 61 runs off 44 balls. My XI – AB de Villiers (Captain), Jonny Bairstow(Vice-Captain), David Warner, Devdutt Padikkal, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, TNatrajan, Harshal Patel, Vijay Shankar, Virat Kohli, Kyle Jamieson

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Mumbai on April 13, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Kolkata vs Mumbai on April 13 Kolkata started their 2021 season with a 10-run win against Hyderabad on Sunday. On a slightly slowish surface, they were able to produce a total of 187 runs in their allotted 20 overs, making an early statement with the bat. The Eoin Morgan-led team was also successful in keeping the run rate down while they were bowling, ensuring a comfortable win in the end for themselves. With that being said and done, their next challenge will be against Mumbai, who are the most successful side in the league’s history and also the defending champions.Mumbai, on the other hand, didn’t have an ideal start to this current season. They lost a really close match against Bangalore first up but there are certain areas of concerns as far as their batting is concerned. Even after fetching a good score in the first 15 overs, they were not able to finish well in the death overs. Given the power of players like Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pandya, and Krunal Pandya, they are expected to bounce back in the second game of the season.The history at this point in time doesn’t support Kolkata at all. They have played against Mumbai in 27 matches, but have only managed six victories. The past records would be a huge boost for the Mumbai team, which will be seeking a win badly to get their season up and running as they eye their third title in a row. Best economical pick – Ishan Kishan has been in red-hot form in recent times and has the potential to be one of the best in the ongoing tournament. The left-handed batsman recently impressed for India when he scored a blazing fifty on his debut against England, In the game against RCB too, Kishan looked good and got the start but could not capitalise on it. He scored 28 off 19 balls against RCB. Top captains & vice captains – Suryakumar Yadav has been in the form of his life recently. He was in fine touch with the blade when he made his T20I debut against England recently. He carried on that superb knick and was also seen timing the ball brilliantly during his short innings of 31 runs from 23 balls. When he faces his former team Kolkata, he would be eyeing a big score, something which he is totally capable of producing.Nitish Rana was seen at his best when he was opening the innings in the first match of the season against Hyderabad. He played a brilliant knock, attacking the new ball bowlers and then later taking on the spinners in the middle overs. He ended with a score of 80 from 54 balls. Interestingly, this was his third score of 80 in the last six IPL innings. His match-winning knock was also his fourth fifty in six matches opening the innings for KKR. With form under his belt, Rana is likely to cash in and get another substantial score for his side. Smart pick – Shubman Gill is one batsman that Kolkata heavily depends on when it comes to giving them a good start. The talented opener missed out on an opportunity to get a big score in the opening match but would be eyeing one against Mumbai. Interestingly, his highest score in the Indian T20 League is against Mumbai, a knock of 76 which he had played in 2019 at the Eden Gardens. Cautious Pick – In a league as highly competitive as the IPL, Chris Lynn has often found himself underutilized. He was a part of the team in 2020 but did not get a single game. In 2021, he got a chance not because he was the first-choice opener, but because the Indians’ first-choice opener was forced to sit out owing to his quarantine regulations. Even though he scored a 35-ball 49 on his MI debut, with de Kockavailable, there is little to no chance that Lynn will find a spot for him. My XI – Suryakumar Yadav (Captain), Nitish Rana (Vice-Captain), Ishan Kishan, Shubhman Gill, Varun Chakravarthy, Pat Cummins, Jasprit Bumrah, Andre Russell, Rohit Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Prasidh Krishna
