Key Points:

Wicker Keeper :

  • Ab De Villiers – Safe pick, good average against KKR too, only difficulty is to tackle Narine.
  • Dinesh Karthik – Mini GL / Gl pick, urge to perform.


  • Virat Kohli ignored by many, he has taken up huge decisions just to concentrate on his batting, similarly kinda a Sachin style (kindly don’t compare the 2 legends of different era), he is very much under pressure to perform, usually he performs from 2nd part of the IPL, expecting good runs from him, ignored by many.
  • Paddikal should try to prove himself post failure in Series against Sri Lanka, will play his way, Can score some crucial runs.
  • Rana is very good form, safe pick I feel.
  • Maxwell very good average at this pitch, he will try to give his best, quickfire from him is guaranteed.
  • Tripathi Has moderate stats at this pitch, not so consistent.
  • Gill under pressure to perform, good average around 30 at this pitch, will try to give his best.
  • Morgan good average at this pitch, Can score few crucial runs, expecting around 20+ runs.
  • Patidar gl or mini gl pick.

All-Rounder :

  • Russell & Narine have recently played CPL, were in good touch too. Narine Bowled well, Russell played quick innings too in CPL.
  • Shabaz Ahmed punt pick, kinda all rounder pick, try him mini or gl teams.
  • Hasaranga is very good at subcontinental pitches and in spin pitches he is too effective. But this pitch is helpful to pacers a bit. Can try him if he is Bowling 1st innings due to less dew factor.


  • Harshal and Jamieson will be crucial bowlers, mainly Jamieson due to similar NZ pitches which he has played. Safe picks I feel.
  • Chahal & Varun, Chahal can give his best give effective reply to the selection committee for ignoring him, but at most he can pick 1 wicket I feel. Varun can also pick 1 wicket.
  • Southee can be effective, very good bowler, in good form. Pitch assistance.
  • Prasidh is good bowler, in good form too, Trump. Pick in gl or mini gl.
  • Siraj the star from the recent time, for sure he will have the spot light ignored by many, but he has become too lethal and dangerous. This is the pitch were he took 3 wickets for just conceding 8 runs. Huge Trump pick.
  • Prediction:
    1. Bit difficult to predict, I feel RCB can win the match.
