Fantasy Tips of The Day
15% of David Warner’s T20 runs and 26% of the Indian t20 league runs have come at the venue – all this at an average of over 60 and a strike rate of over 160.
The same has been the case with Manish Pandey. Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is the only ground where he has scored over 500 runs in the format.
Mayank Markande has been a lucrative fantasy pick in this edition, averaging 50 points per game. More importantly, his best figures (four for 15) in the league have come at the very venue.
Mukesh Kumar has upped the ante, taking five wickets in the last three games – of which three came in the powerplay.
Marco Jansen is the only player in this contest to feature in the Best11 in four of the last five matches. In Hyderabad this season, he has generated over 50 fantasy points in both the matches.
Axar Patel’s 148 runs this season have yielded 29 points for boundaries and 16 points for strike rate. Meanwhile, three of his four wickets have come in the middle overs – the phase where batters have found it difficult to get going at the venue this season.
Rahul Tripathi (average of 35) and Aiden Markram (average of 42) are the only players for Hyderabad to score past 500 runs since the last edition. Moreover, Markram has been a magnet in the field, pouching the second-most catches (seven) in this season.
