Top Picks – Bowlers
Mustafizur Rahman will be up against world-class batters like Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and AB de Villiers, but he can cause problems with his variations. He has scalped 11 wickets in this year’s IPL at an economy of 7.84.

AB de Villiers
RR vs RCB Risky Captaincy Choices:
Since top-order batters are doing a good job for RCB, AB de Villiers is coming in a finisher at the late end of the innings. Considering this he is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.
Chris Morris is yet to pick a wicket in the second leg of the IPL, but he is a real match-winner in this format and had a great first phase, especially with the ball. You can take a risk and pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
Player you should avoid:
Kyle Jamieson is struggling to find his rhythm, he went wicketless in the last 2 matches. Considering his present form, it’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
