KAR vs VID Risky Captaincy Choices:

J Suchith is an excellent all-rounder and has all the attributes to become a good fantasy pick. But, giving him the captaincy may lead you to lose some points. 

A Karnewar has accumulated 13 wickets in this tournament, but whether against a strong Karnataka team he will be effective or not, there is some doubt over that. It is better to pick him as a fantasy pick. 

Player you should avoid:

Prasidh Krishna and Mayank Agarwal are already in the Indian camp, so don’t pick them. You can also avoid Shubham Dubey.
