IPL Fantasy League
Transfer out: Glenn Maxwell, Shreyas Iyer
Transfer in: David Warner/Sunil Narine, Bipul Sharma/Deepak Hooda
Now, I already have Kuldeep Yadav, Rashid Khan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar in my team for this game.
3 of my 4 overseas players feature in either today’s or tomorrow’s game and thus I can bring in only one overseas player into my team for this game.
With Hyderabad being a batting friendly wicket, I’ll be getting in David Warner into my side. The toss up was between Narine and Warner and though Narine offers me a double scoring opportunity, I’ll go ahead with Warner here because Narine will be up against Bhuvi at the top of the order and could cleaned up, rendering his double scoring opportunity useless.
Warner normally flourishes in conditions that allow the ball coming onto the bat and though the Hyderabad wicket has been a little sticky off late, it still plays better than most other pitches were Warner has been amongst the runs this season. So, get him in, he should help himself to a 50 tonight.
If you want to keep Warner out, just see how Gambhir reads the pitch, if he feels that it would turn a bit, get Narine in for Warner.
The conundrum with regard to Uthappa and Gambhir continues to haunt Fantasy Managers. And there is only one answer to it, you cannot really predict who would fire on a particular day. So, all you can do is spread out your risk and opt for the player who would give you multiple scoring opportunities, and that is definitely Uthappa, as he keeps wickets as well.
But as I have just 21 transfers in the kitty, I would not opt for Uthappa, as he’ll have to deal with Bhuvi upfront and then deal with Rashid’s trickery during the middle overs, which I hope will lead to his downfall. If you have more than 28 transfers left, get him in.
For the uncapped player, I’ll get in Deepak Hooda, as I have to opt for an all rounder, as he is the only available choice in this game. If Bipul Sharma plays, I’ll go with Bipul Sharma instead of Hooda
Captain: Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
