Triumph Knights

All-rounders are the first players in my fantasy teams for T20 cricket so Parikshit Valasangkar is the first name for me. His scores have gradually risen this season with 6, 12, 39 and 52* in the last game. With the ball, he has bowled magnificently well with 15 overs at 5 runs an over. He has bowled his quota of 4 overs across almost all games and even though he has gone wicketless, I’ll make him my captain today.

After a fairly decent IPL 2019 for Mumbai Indians, Suryakumar Yadav has 2 fifties so far in 4 games in MPL 2019. However, he bats in the middle order so I’ll be picking him as a normal player in my fantasy team. In 4 matches so far, Royston Dias has picked 8 wickets in this tournament and after his 4/26 in the last game, he’s a must pick. For your second TK bowler, pick either one of Yash Docholkar or Mohit Awasthi.

North Mumbai Panthers

With the ball, Atif Attarwala has been the star bowler with 6 wickets in the first 2 games but suddenly, he hasn’t got a wicket in the last two games so I’d rather pick Rahul Sawant, who missed the first game but has since then been brilliant, never once bowling at over 6 runs per over, while also picking up wickets in every match. Pravin Tambe could also be an option, getting a wicket after getting 0 in the first 3 games.

Vikrant Auti took over the captaincy in the last game and has been brilliant so far with 155 runs in 4 games. He even picked up a wicket in the last game and is a brilliant option over Prtihvi Shaw who didn’t play the last game. Delhi in your Funtasy11 (sign-up with code “6CD431) fantasy team. NMP wicket-keepers Swapnil Salvi and Ajinkya Patil bat lower down the order so pick your wicket-keeper from the TKM team.
