Analysing Fantasy Picks

It is important not to think emotionally while picking a Fantasy side but rather think rationally and choose a side. The basic principle of a Fantasy side is that players with more than one skills by virtue of their ability to potentially fetch more points become valuable. Thus, Pant who also could bat up the order, can be a good pick. Same with Punjab’s Jitesh but where he will bat in Punjab’s batting order remains to be seen.

While picking a batter, it is important to see if he gets a sizable number of deliveries to allow him to make significant contribution. Thus, top-order batters usually get preference. Warner, coming into this tournament has displayed some good form and almost becomes an automated pick. Dhawan can be a handy too. Users can also pick Shaw and Bairstow if the balance of the side allows.

However, the pro-fantasy tip is to fill the team with all-round options especially with several of them on display in this match. Livingstone, Marsh, Axar and Curran should ideally get preference. As far as bowlers are concerned, wicket-taking options have the ability to significant fetch points. Kuldeep, Arshdeep, Rabada and Mukesh could be among the top picks.

Probable Playing 11s:

Punjab: Dhawan (captain), Bairstow, Prabhsimran, Livingstone, Jitesh (wicketkeeper), Ashutosh, Curran, Chahar, Harpreet, Rabada, Harshal

Delhi: Warner, Shaw, Marsh, Pant (capt/wk), Stubbs, Porel, Kushagra, Axar, Lalit, Kuldeep, Ishant
