IPL 2018: Fantasy Cricket Tips for RCB vs SRH, May 17, 51st IPL Match

As a fantasy cricket lover, you should be focusing on individual players to create your virtual team rather than the overall performance of the team. That is why for the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match on May 17 to be held at Chinnaswamy Stadium, you should use the following fantasy cricket tips.

  • Virat Kohli, captain of RCB, and Kane Williamson, captain SRH, are on the Orange Cap list.Choose them as captain and vice captain, respectively. Williamson has scored an amazing 401 runs, and boasts a high score of 82 runs while Kohli has managed to score 396 runs in this edition of the IPL, and his highest score is 92 runs.

  • Umesh Yadav should be your key wicket-taking bowler, considering that he has taken 14 wickets in 10 matches until now.

  • Siddharth Kaul and Rashid Khan, both from Sunrisers Hyderabad, have bowled pretty well in VIVO IPL 2018, and you can choose them as bowlers.

  • Sensational Rashid Khan can be your all-rounder, if you like.

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar has just been spectacular, especially against RCB. So, for this match too he is expected to perform well.

  • Think twice before including Alex Hales and Deepak Hooda in your fantasy cricket team. The two not performing as expected in  IPL 2018, and you don’t want to include them in your team and lose points.

  • Aging Yusuf Pathan is not a bad choice for your fantasy cricket team. However, keep him in the sidelines until you have checked all other players. Then if you think you need more batting prowess, include him in your virtual cricket team.

  • A right-handed top order batsman Manish Pandey has scored 184 runs in this season in last 10 matches. While this score is not the best, but you can also think of including him in the fantasy cricket team. Sooner or later, he is bound to score, and this could be the match where he goes guns blazing.
