IPL 2018 Fantasy Guide: Fantasy Tips for RCB vs SRH

It’s now or never for Virat Kohli’s RCB as a loss against SRH tonight would mean curtains for the RCB franchise(well, almost).

SRH sit pretty at the top of the table and would be glad that they don’t have to go through the stress of that mid table rut.

However, Tom Moody and the SRH think tank are smart enough to understand that they can’t be complacent despite having already qualified.

Let’s get to business now!

Transfer out: Chris Gayle

Transfer in: Siddharth Kaul/Manan Vohra

(Getting in Rashid Khan would be a call that will be taken after the pitch report)

Now, I already have Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shikhar Dhawan in my side for this game.

It will be interesting to see how the Bangalore surface behaves today, as it has gripped and spun a lot in the last few games, and could do the same tonight as well.

So, listen to the pitch report very carefully, because of the pitch report suggests that ball will spin, get Rashid Khan in, if it says, that it will be a batting paradise, you could maybe save the transfer.

Now, for people with more than 10 transfers in the bag, I would advise you to pick Rashid Khan either way.

Also, if the pitch report is done by Danny Morrison or Sunny Gavaskar, and the pitch behaves exactly the opposite, it would mark another normal day in the IPL.

Kane Williamson seems like a very safe transfer at this stage, especially with the form that he is in. He has been milking the ball to all parts of the ground and could go big tonight, especially if the Chinnaswamy dishes out a batting heaven.

For the uncapped player, I would get in Siddharth Kaul, as he seems like the safest option. If Manan Vohra plays today, he could be drafted in, but only if SRH bowl second.

Now, I already have Virat Kohli and Siddharth Kaul in my side for this game.

AB de Villiers would be the first player that I get into my side for this game. He has been brilliant for RCB in the middle order and when it comes to the big games, you need to bank on the big players to come good.

Between Dhawan and Williamson, I would attach a higher ‘impact potential’ to Dhawan as he scores at a quicker pace than Williamson.

Rashid Khan would be my last pick for the game and I would bring him in primarily because I want a good bowling captain in my side. And hopefully the Chinnaswamy surface helps him get some turn.

Batting Powerplayer- Virat Kohli

Bowling Powerplayer- Rashid Khan
