Kane Williamson (9 credits)
Kane Williamson is a classy cricketer. But he doesn’t have the chances that he would have liked in this year’s IPL. Kane Williamson doesn’t get too many balls to score runs with him coming in to bat at number four if the openers get off to a strong start as they did in the last match.
You could expect the likes of Manish Pandey and David Warner to remain at the crease for a long period of time with the game being in Sharjah. You may leave him from your Dream11 team simply because Kane Williamson may not get enough balls to make an impact.
Jason Holder (8.5 credits)
This year, Jason Holder has bowled with good control and his addition to the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s lineup was fruitful. 6 wickets in three matches have already been picked by him. However, if there is one batsman Jason Holder does not like to bowl to, that’s AB de Villiers. Although he only bowled 5 balls to him in T20, de Villiers smashed Holder in ODIs for 143 runs in 59 balls.
He has always enjoyed the medium pace of Jason Holder and it is likely that David Warner will keep that in mind. Besides that, at Sharjah, Jason Holder may not get enough batting and therefore might not end up doing much. He has less credit requirement too, but it would be better not to risk taking Jason Holder against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Wriddhiman Saha (8 credits)
Wriddhiman Saha played a match-winning innings at the opening of the innings in the last match as he scored 87 out of only 45 balls. We all know, however, this was perhaps Wriddhiman Saha’s only excellent innings since his ton in the final of 2014 IPL. You may be tempted to go for him, with him needing less credits.
But with Royal Challengers Bangalore possessing a powerful attack, including Yuzvendra Chahal’s leg spinner, you could see Wriddhiman Saha struggling. He’s not a typical T20 batsman, and his freakish performance might not be capable of being repeated. You can then keep him out of your Dream11 team.
