Aaron Finch (9 credits)
There was a lot expected of Finch going into the tournament. But he has not performed near to his ability anywhere. With a single 50, he scored just 122 runs in five games. For most of the tournament, he seemed kind of out of sorts.
His strike-rate of just 117 is also extremely unimpressive. Several high-profile and in-form batsmen are present in this match. Therefore, choosing for them would be safer than risking taking an out-of-form Finch.
Deepak Chahar (8.5 credits)
In this IPL, Deepak Chahar has bowled decently but with no enticing returns. Chahar, who last season was among the top wicket-takers, accounting for 22 scalps, was able to pick up just five wickets this year in six games.
He was not able to draw much from the UAE pitches, and in a couple of games, he also looked unsuccessful. He also has low numbers, with an average of 40 and a strike rate of 36 against the RCB. Hence, we can exclude Chahar by holding these things in mind.
Navdeep Saini(8.5 credits)
This season, Navdeep Saini bowled at a decent pace but wasn’t able to pick up a lot of wickets. Saini is a risky gambler to settle for with three wickets in five games, and an economy of 10. He might annoy the batsmen, but he is still extraordinarily erratic and tends to run leaks.
Though he’s no doubt a good bowler, it’s the wickets that earn you points in fantasy cricket. Saini has been missing in that aspect so that we can keep him out of the squad.
