Top Picks for GT vs SRH Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – fogged
Rahul Tripathi has been non-out in 3 out of 7 games for SRH. Against KKR, he made 71 runs from just 37 deliveries and helped the team win the match by 7 wickets after chasing a 176-run goal in just 17.5 overs. He scored 212 runs in 7 games with an average of 53 and a strike rate of 175.20.
David Miller was involved in a 50-run partnership along with Hardik Pandya for the third wicket against KKR in the final match. Just before this match, he went crazy against defending champion CSK’s bowling line-up, scoring 94 runs from just 51 deliveries. Miller may have reached the form he is known for and that could be alarming for other teams.
Top Picks – Allrounders
Hardik Pandya has gone through a purple stain and has emerged as one of the best all-rounders in this edition of the competition. With the bat, he has scored 295 runs with an average of 73.75 and a strike rate of 136.57 including 3 half centuries. He also picked 4 wickets at an average of 35.
Aiden Markram has scored 2 half centuries in 7 matches. He has only been fired once for under 20 runs and has become the backbone of SRH’s batting lineup. He made 190 runs with a strike rate of 150.79.
Top Picks – bowlers
T Natarajan took 15 wickets in 7 matches with an average of 14.53, economy of 8.07 and stroke rate of 10.8. He is one of the deadliest bowlers when it comes to death overs and is a must have on your fantasy squad.
Rashid Khan has picked 8 wickets in 7 games with an average of 22.75, economy of 6.50 and strike rate of 21. He has also contributed batting for GT. He is one of those bowlers that you should never let off your fantasy team.
Top Picks – wicket keeper
Nicholas Pooran has scored over 30 runs in the tournament three times and is a key member of SRH’s middle class.

GT vs SRH Risky Captaincy Picks:
Abhishek Sharma is the leading run scorer for SRH in the tournament. He scored 220 runs in 7 games with an average of 31.42 and a strike rate of 125.71. He has scored more than 30 runs in 2 of the last 3 innings, but failed to convert the same in half a century. Abhishek got SRH off to a good start and that’s why he should be on your fantasy team. But he is definitely a risky choice when it comes to picking your team captain.
Wriddhiman Saha made his debut for GT against Chennai Super Kings, scoring just 11 runs from 18 deliveries. In the next match, Saha made 25 runs on 25 deliveries and added 75 runs for the second wicket.
Player to avoid:
Shashank Singh have not been able to choose a wicket and have not been able to score points. You can avoid him in your fantasy team for this match.
