On Sun, Mar 31 2019, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will fight to prove their supremacy at the SRH home grounds. A well-balanced squad on both sides, this match could go in any direction. Though SRH has consistently performed better than RCB, the changes to RCB’s squad could make a massive difference. Fantasy cricket players will also have a better insight into the playing potential of the younger talent, as this is the 11th match of the season. By the time this match is played, both the teams would have worked out their strengths and weaknesses and tweaked their squads accordingly.
Forming Fantasy Cricket Team from Sunrisers Hyderabad
Since the Sunrisers have been very judicious in their choices at the auction, they have already taken a step in the right direction. Their well-balanced team is stronger now with the exception of an all-round bowler, which has been filled up by Vijay Shankar. He needs to be given a decent chance to prove his worth. With the explosive opening pair of David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan now dispersed, Bairstow and Guptill will be the first to guard the wicket. The addition of these players along with Wriddhiman Saha has completed their batting line-up.
From a fantasy cricket perspective, carried-over players are always a better bargain. It is easier to look into their performance history and decide whether or not they deserve a spot in your dream team. All-rounders give great performances and can help fetch points in various categories. Including players like Vijay Shankar and Wriddhiman Saha would be a smart decision due to their amazing playing record and versatile nature.
Forming Fantasy Cricket Team from Royal Challengers Bangalore
The Royal Challengers, on the other hand, have spent huge amounts to procure the services of 10 new players, including all-rounders, batsmen and a wicket keeper to replace Brendon McCullum and Quinton de Kock. Their lack of senior openers for batting could be an issue for concern. Maybe Skipper Virat Kohli should take care of the crease with Parthiv Patel. Or they can choose to send in new squad members to see how they perform.
Make sure you do your research before choosing younger talent for your Dream XI as their performance can often be questionable. With a team like RCB, it can also be difficult to predict which players will appear on the pitch for sure. A safer option would be to add high-value players from RCB to your team. This will ensure high performance and guaranteed on-field presence.
The two teams will be clashing for the first time and it would be worth a watch to see their interaction on the ground, especially with the new configuration of both the teams. This makes it more challenging for the fantasy cricket enthusiasts as well, but still it will be highly exciting to play.
