Jos Buttler (10 credits)
In the last match, we expected Jos Buttler to come in great form against Mumbai Indians, and he did it. You can’t keep a cricketer like him out for too long. He scored 70 out of only 44 balls, and looked at ease against all the bowlers of Mumbai Indians. Had it not been for Kieron Pollard’s excellent catch, he would certainly have scored a lot more. Jos Buttler could be a revelation at the Sharjah stadium with his form back. Hence, he is perhaps the best contender to be the multiplier in your team.
Shreyas Iyer (9.5 credits)
Shreyas Iyer, the Delhi Capitals skipper, has had an outstanding Indian Premier League so far. He scored 181 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 144. He had a wonderful time in Sharjah, just like Samson, and scored 88* out of only 38 balls in the only match he played there. Apart from Jofra Archer, Rajasthan Royals’s bowling does not exude much confidence and if Shreyas Iyer likes Rajasthan Royals’s wrist spinners, we might see some really meaty blows from his bat. Trust the skipper of the Delhi Capitals to come good for your Dream11 team.
Sanju Samson (9.5 credits)
As he ran amok and scored 74 off 32 and 85 off 42 balls in his first two matches, Sanju Samson had a blazing start to this year’s Indian Premier League. He was cleanly striking the ball and appeared to be in decent form. However, because of a combination of bad luck and poor shot selection, Sanju Samson has managed only 12 runs in the last three games. We are picking him, despite his recent returns not being well, because the game is in Sharjah and his first two innings have been played at the same venue. We are therefore backing Sanju Samson to feed the confidence from the first two matches.
