In the 3rd match of the IPL, SRH will take on RCB. SRH is possibly one of the consistent teams in the IPL whereas, RCB, well, you know the story.
They will be looking for a positive start here to put behind the forgettable 2019 season.
The average score in the last four matches at this venue is 138. The spinners will have an upper hand here and it is difficult to chase a total here. This should be an ideal condition for SRH unless someone decides to go berserk.
To start with,
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers usually make into any fantasy side and today shouldn’t be any different.
Manish Pandey is an important pick in the fantasy side at least in a pitch like this.
Jonny Bairstow, who had a ton and a fifty-plus score in the three ODIs will be a key player here. Having said that, Chahal might come in handy against Bairstow. So is Warner.
Kane Williamson is unlikely to play here. If he does, he is one of the best players in this condition. If he is not playing, Mohammad Nabi’s recent form in the CPL 2020 makes him a vital pick.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been amazing for SRH over the years and can be an important pick for the fantasy.
Rashid Khan did not enjoy a great CPL 2020 but you just cannot ignore him and his ability.
Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikal are likely to open today and if it is the case, Parthiv Patel might be missing out.
Dale Steyn-Aaron Finch-AB de Villiers-Chris Morris or Isuru Udana will be playing for RCB. Here Chris Morris will be more vital.
Shahbaz Ahmed impressed everyone in the practice match recently and might play here too. If he does, he is such an impressive talent to watch out for.
In the same way, Abdul Samad will be yet another player to watch out for this season. He can fix the middle-order issue for SRH.
David Warner-Jonny Bairstow-Rashid Khan-Mohammad Nabi is likely to play in this match.
Fantasy line-up:(This is just a prediction and we are not 100 per cent right for sure!)
V Kohli, De Villiers, M Pandey, D Padikal, A Samad/V Shankar, J Bairstow, R Khan, N Saini, Y Chahal, M Marsh and D Steyn
