RR vs MI: How to pick the winning Fantasy XI?
Rajasthan Royals host Mumbai Indians in match 21 of 2018 Indian Premier League on Sunday. Mumbai just got back to winning ways against RCB, while Royals have faced two back to back defeats. Rajasthan will be looking to bounce back in the comfort of their home. So how to pick your Dream XI for this enthralling fixture? Here is our guide.
Rohit, Lewis, Rahane, Samson and Klassen
We have opted for 5 batsmen in our line-up for this fixture. Mumbai Indians' Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis have been the top performers for the defending champions and hence make it to our XI. Rajasthan's captain Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson and Heinrich Klassen will be the other batsmen in our Fantasy XI. Jos Buttler will be the wicket-keeper of this team.
The Pandya brothers
Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya will be the two all-rounders in our XI to gain maximum points. Hardik Pandya has recovered from his injury. He has scored 41 runs and bagged 3 wickets in his 3 appearances. His older brother, Krunal has scored 82 runs and bagged 5 wickets in 4 matches till now. We expect Pandya brothers to give us tons of points.
Jasprit Bumrah, Mayank Markande and Shreyas Gopal
Jasprit Bumrah is one of the finest bowlers in the death overs, which makes him a valuable addition to this XI. The stadium at Jaipur has large boundaries which is why spinners will have a huge role to play. Leg-spinners Mayank Markande and Shreyas Gopal should come good here tonight. Mayank has 8 wickets while Gopal has bagged 5 so far.
Captain and vice captain
Rohit Sharma, who scored a brilliant 94-run knock in his last match, looks like he is in good nick and will be the captain of this XI. Rohit's form could spark a resurgence for Mumbai and we expect him to put up a show at Jaipur tonight. Samson has been Rajasthan's key player and top scorer with 187 runs. He will be our vice-captain.
