Hardik Pandya (9 credits)
So far this season, Hardik Pandya has not met expectations. In 7 outings with the bat, he could score only 135 runs, although he is still to bowl due to fitness concerns. With the bowlers that MI owns, Rohit Sharma certainly wouldn’t imagine him having a go with the ball. Hardik has opportunities with the bat only when collapse has occurred. Considering all the firepower from both teams combined, instead of Hardik, you should take a look at the other options from both teams.
Nitish Rana (9 credits)
This season, Nitish Rana has not been up to the mark. In 7 matches, he could only handle 150 runs and had a few forgettable outings as well. He has struggled both against spinners and seamers and has not been able to repeat his previous performances from previous seasons. With bad back to back results, you can avoid picking Nitish Rana.
James Pattinson (8.5 credits)
After being considered to fill in the big boots of Lasith Malinga, James Pattinson has had a good IPL this season. In 7 matches, he has picked up 9 wickets and has done well so far. On a few occasions, he has been economical, but often the opposing teams have attacked him. It would help if you leave him out of your dream 11 team, given these variables.
