Transfer In: Shakib Al Hasan (KKR)/David Warner (SRH), Johnny Bairstow (SRH)/Rashid Khan (SRH)

Uncapped Transfer: Nitish Rana (KKR)

Shakib Al Hasan (KKR): Shakib can bat up the order and can bowl full 4-over quota. Shakib will make it to the final XI unless KKR persists with Sunil Narine.

David Warner (SRH): David Warner is the run machine for SRH and he will be our second choice pick for today’s match. David Warner is expensive at 12 Credits. If we pick up Shakib, we will not be able to fit in David Warner in our fantasy team.

Jonny Bairstow (SRH): It remains to be seen whether SRH will go with their overseas batsman as Jonny Bairstow or Kane Williamson(SRH) or both. If we go with Shakib Al Hasan as one pick, we will have Jonny Bairstow as our other pick for this match

Rashid Khan (SRH): The world’s best spinner Rashid Khan will add additional value on the Chennai pitch. We may not be able to carry him for the SRH next match. So we will pick him up based on the above other team combinations.

Nitish Rana (KKR): There are multiple uncapped picks available for this match from both teams. Nitish Rana is our first choice uncapped pick. He bats in top three and bowls occasionally.

Here’s our Fantasy Team:

Ishan Kishan, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Shakib Al Hasan (C), Andre Russell (VC), Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Varun Chakravarthy


Captain: Shakib Al Hasan (KKR)/David Warner (SRH)

Vice Captain: Andre Russel (KKR) if KKR bats first/Jonny Bairstow (SRH)

Andre Russel is KKR’s biggest power hitter. When KKR bats first, he will come up the order. We are not clear on how many overs he is going to bowl. So, we will take him as a vice-captain if KKR bats first.

Note: There could be slight changes in the fantasy team based on the teams announced after the toss and any other news.
