Key players

Captain and vice captain

Sunil Narine has to be your captain if you want to extract maximum points from this Fantasy XI.

The West Indian is a perfect pinch hitter and can bag crucial wickets will the ball as well.

Big-hitting Australian Glen Maxwell will be our vice-captain.

We all know this man can score and he can score big.

Moreover, he is a part-time spinner.


Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer, Uthappa, Lynn and Pant

We have opted to go for 4 batsmen with two from each side.

England's Jason Roy and young Shreyas Iyer will be the Delhi Daredevils batsmen while veteran Robin Uthappa and the big-hitting Chris Lynn are the two Kolkata batsmen in the Dream XI.

We are picking young Rishabh Pant as our wicket-keeper over the experienced Dinesh Karthik.

All-round trio form the core of this team

Captain Sunil Narine and vice-captain Glenn Maxwell are the two all-rounders and joining them will be the dangerous all-rounder Andre Russell. The West Indian will bag you a wicket or two and can churn in the runs with the bat as well.

Mohammed Shami, Rahul Tewatia and Kuldeep Yadav


Mohammed Shami, Rahul Tewatia and Kuldeep Yadav

We have decided to go with a 3-bowler line up.

Mohammed Shami, Rahul Tewatia and Kuldeep Yadav would be these three bowlers.

Shami has been in decent form and Kuldeep Yadav is slowing showing the skills that helped him dominate the Proteas during India's tour of South Africa.

If all goes well, Kuldeep should bag at least a couple of wickets.
