Top Captaincy Choices for DG vs TAD Dream11 Match
Andre Russell: Andre Russell is the safest captaincy pick for this game. He will contribute with both bat and the ball. Russell also opened in some of the matches of the last edition and scored an unbeaten 90 runs off just 32 balls in the finals. Russell picked up 9 wickets and scored 247 runs in the last season.
Alex Hales: Alex Hales was in exceptional form in the recently concluded T20 WC. He was scoring runs for fun and will look to do just that in this tournament as well. He will be an ideal captaincy choice as he’ll open the innings and can score big when on song.
Chris Lynn: Chris Lynn is one of the most destructive openers in world cricket. He will open the innings. He hits sixes for fun and can tear apart any bowling attack on his day. Lynn will open the innings for Team Abu Dhabi and will be a top captaincy option.
Differential Picks for DG vs TAD Dream11 Match
Tom Kohler-Cadmore: Tom Kohler-Cadmore will be an excellent differential pick. He will open the innings for the Deccan Gladiators. He will score big once he gets going. Tom scored 288 runs in the last season at an average of 28.80 in 12 matches.
Zahoor Khan: Zahoor Khan, if he plays, will be the best differential pick, especially if the Deccan Gladiators bowl first. He is one of the lead pacers for UAE and was in top form in the recently concluded T20 WC. Zahoor has a good yorker and a deceptive slower delivery.
Odean Smith: Odean Smith is another top differential pick for your fantasy teams. He will bowl 2 overs and can score some runs if he gets the chance to bat. He was in decent form with the ball in the last season and bowled in the death overs for his team.
