It has been a season to forget for Bangalore as they became the first team to crash out of the reckoning from the Play-Offs. They will be playing their final game of the season in front of their home crowd at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium against Hyderabad on Saturday. Hyderabad are one of the four teams fighting for that vacant fourth spot in the qualifiers and need to win this game to have an upper hand in the race for supremacy. Bangalore’s season might be over but they will be the party-poopers as they would want to bow out of the tournament on a strong note.

Fantasy team lovers will look forward to this game. Kohli and de Villiers will be the most sought out players but users have a strict budget to work on. Manish Pandey’s blazing form has carried Hyderabad this far and makes him a smart pick. Saha can strike the meaty blows and can edge out Parthiv depending on the composition of your team.

Chinnaswamy has seen tall scores this year and this game won’t be any different. Despite the runs, Chahal relishes bowling at this ground and should be picked by users due to his ongoing form. Overall, Hyderabad have a slight advantage over Bangalore but that can be nullified in a matter of a few good overs.

Wicket-Keeper: Wriddhiman Saha

Batsmen: Guptill, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson (C)

All-Rounders: Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Mohammed Nabi

Bowlers: Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Basil Thampi

Dotball Prediction:

Dotball team for Head to Head/Small Contests:

Wicket-Keeper: Parthiv Patel

Batsmen: AB de Villiers (C), Manish Pandey, Virat Kohli

All-Rounders: Marcus Stoinis, Mohammed Nabi, Vijay Shankar

Bowlers: Rashid Khan (VC), Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar

Captain and Vice-Captain choices:

Captain: Since de Villiers doesn’t play cricket all year long, he will be keen to finish the season off on a high. With 449 runs at 49, he is in reasonable touch as well. With the ground on the shorter side, de Villiers is always a must pick in Bangalore because it is a risk always worth taking.

Vice-Captain: If there is anyone who can topple de Viliers then it is Rashid Khan. He will look to bowl as many googlies at the former South African captain and hope to sneak past his defences. His returns might be middling this year but an economy rate of 6.11 is stuff champions are made of.

Fantasy Tips

Navdeep Saini’s raw pace has proven to be effective at a placid Chinnaswamy surface in the past. If he can get his lengths right, Saini is more than capable of humbling an inexperienced batting line-up of Hyderabad.

Safe Captain Choices:

Rashid Khan

AB de Villiers

Khaleel Ahmed

Risky Captain Choices:

Manish Pandey

Kane Williamson

Henrich Klaasen

Dotball Team for Large/Grand Contests:

Wicket-Keeper: Wriddhiman Saha

Batsmen: Henrich Klaasen, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey (C), Kane Williamson

All-Rounders: Marcus Stoinis, Mohammed Nabi

Bowlers: Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal (VC), Bhuvaneshwar Kumar

Captain and Vice-Captain choices:

Captain: Manish Pandey’s consistency after regaining his position in the side has been unparalleled. He has struck the ball cleanly and has rotated the strike in the middle overs to keep the scoreboard ticking. Despite his slow start, his season average has rocketed past the 50 mark with a handy strike rate of almost 142.

Vice-Captain: The leg spin of Chahal has fetched him 17 sticks from 13 games at a decent economy rate of 7.98. Chahal has been slick in operation during the middle stages of the game and has encouraged the batsmen to go after him. He is expected to play a pivotal role for the hosts yet again at a ground he loves playing in.

Fantasy Tips

Bhuvi looked off coloured in the initial stages of the tournament but has gotten into his groove of late which has helped him contain runs at the death. He will come hard at the batsmen with the new ball in hand.

Dream 11 Prediction

Suggested Playing XI No. 1 for Head to Head/Small Leagues

Wicket-Keeper – Wriddhiman Saha

Batsmen – Martin Guptill, Manish Pandey (VC), Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers (C),

All-Rounders – Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar

Bowlers – Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal

Fantasy Tips

Guptill didn’t get going in his first game but will have to step up in the absence of senior pros Warner and Bairstow. He has enough ability to get his side off to a flying start and get a big one.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Grand/ Mega Leagues:

Wicket-Keeper – Parthiv Patel (VC)

Batsmen – Manish Pandey (C), Kane Williamson, AB de Villiers, Gurkeerat Singh Mann

All-Rounders – Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar

Bowlers – Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Navdeep Saini, Umesh Yadav


Fantasy Tips

This might be Williamson’s final chance to shrug off his loss of form before he heads off for the World Cup. The Kiwi skipper hasn’t looked assured and has faltered against spin more often than not. He must open the innings as that will give him the best chance to get the best out of himself as a batsman.
