MI vs RR: Tips to pick the ideal Dream11

The IPL 2019 is close to its halfway mark, as the match number 27 would see two former champions Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals locking horns at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

While Mumbai are miles ahead, Rajasthan need to clinch a series of victories to even think about play-offs.

Here we take a look at the Fantasy XI for this tie.

Wicket-keeper

Jos Buttler: The man behind the stumps

Jos Buttler: The man behind the stumps

Starting with the wicket-keeping department, Jos Buttler gets the nod.

Buttler has sound wicket-keeping skills, but importantly he has been a prolific opener.

In IPL 2019, he has scored 199 runs at a healthy average of 33.16.

He is also among the top ten run-scorers in the tournament so far.

For all these reasons, we suggest fans to pick him over Quinton de Kock.

Batsmen

Steve Smith, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard constitute the line-up

The batting order has to start with Rajasthan's skipper Ajinkya Rahane, who can give a strong start atop.

He would be supported by his team-mate Steve Smith, who is expected to deliver a match-winning knock against MI.

The order would be powered by Suryakumar Yadav. He has the potential to anchor the innings.

Finally, Kieron Pollard is a no-brainer in this contest.

All-rounders

Ben Stokes, Hardik Pandya are the all-rounders

Ben Stokes, Hardik Pandya are the all-rounders

Ben Stokes is yet to fire with the bat but overall he has been a valuable asset for Rajasthan. For this reason, he finds his name on the team-sheet.

The Pandya brothers would be the other two all-rounders.

While Hardik has been in fine form, especially with the ball, Krunal too can assist him, courtesy his exquisite spin bowling. They can bat as well.

Bowlers

Jofra Archer, Jasprit Bumrah form a fine bowling pair

The bowling attack will have spinner Shreyas Gopal. He can contribute with the bat, if needed.

However, the attack would be dominated by Rajasthan pacer Jofra Archer, who is a lethal T20 bowler.

The last name in this XI is Jasprit Bumrah, who can change the complexion of any game with his bowling at the death.

Buttler the captain, Pollard his deputy

Buttler would be the captain of the Fantasy XI, considering his consistent form with the bat this term. Furthermore, being a wicket-keeper can help him extract a couple of extra points. As for the vice-captain, Pollard gets our nod, especially after his show against KXIP.
