MI vs DC Risky Captaincy Choices:

Kieron Pollard was the match-winner for Mumbai Indians against Punjab Kings, this time it was with the ball. He removed the big guns in Chris Gayle and Lokesh Rahul in a single over and scored 15* runs with the bat at the late end of the innings. It’s worth a risk to pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
