Bangalore, who became the first team to be eliminated from the playoffs race, will be playing their home game when they host Hyderabad for the second game of the last weekend of Indian T20 League’s group stage. Hyderabad, who lost to Mumbai in a Super Over clash, will qualify for the playoffs as the 4th team if they win this game, otherwise, they will not.

In the absence of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, a lot of work will have to be done by Martin Guptill, Captain Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey. Bangalore could not end the season on a high but will be looking to end the home games on a high and not disappoint the fans one last time. Here is all you need to know for both the teams before picking your Fantain and Dream11 fantasy teams.


Team News –


Shimron Hetmyer, one of the costliest players for Bangalore, could get home as the franchise will now plan to regroup ahead of the next edition.

Likely playing XI – Parthiv Patel (WK), Virat Kohli (C), Ab de Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Klaasen, Shivam Dube, Pawan Negi, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal and Tim Southee

Fantain XI

Wicket-keeper – Parthiv Patel, Wriddhiman Saha

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

All-Rounders – Mohammed Nabi

Captain and vice-captain options

Virat Kohli will hold the key for Bangalore in the batting department. The captain, hungrier than ever to win their last home game, will be looking to sign off on a big inning and give you some crucial points as the captain of Fantasy Fantain XI. If not Kohli, you also could consider AB de Villiers for the captain’s slot.

Manish Pandey, who has risen to the occasion in the last three games, will hold the key for Hyderabad in the middle-order. The batsman is in good form, and having played domestic cricket in Chinnaswamy for Karnataka, will have a good grip of the pitch too. Consider Pandey as the vice-captain option.

This is our Fantain Fantasy XI but you’re the real expert.
