Top Picks of the Match

Virat Kohli (Bangalore)

Virat Kohli has finally found his lost form. He scored an unbeaten 72 off just 47 balls during the team’s 10-wicket win against Rajasthan. He opens the innings and has the ability to bat through and can definitely earn a lot of Fantasy points if he does that.

Moeen Ali (Chennai)

Chennai team is perfectly utilising Moeen Ali all-round skills by promoting him to bat at three. The left-hander has slammed 133 runs so far at a strike-rate of more than 150. He has also picked up four wickets and is the most economical bowler for Chennai. He is a good option to have as captain in your Fantasy team.

X-Factor Player

Ambati Rayudu

Chennai’s middle order batsman Ambati Rayudu hasn’t been at his best this season. He will bat at number five and can have a good chance to score big if Chennai lose early wickets. Rayudu is a very good batsman but is yet to get enough deliveries to prove his mettle. He can become an X-Factor player against Bangalore.
