op Picks – Batters
Abhishek Sharma has been dismissed for a single-digit score only once in the last 5 matches. He is the current leading run-scorer for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Abhishek has made 285 runs in 8 matches at an average of 35.62 and a strike rate of 131.33 including 2 half-centuries.
Ambati Rayudu has scored 246 runs in 8 matches at an average of 35.14 and a strike rate of 129.47. In the last game against Punjab Kings, he made 78 runs off just 39 deliveries and almost won the game for CSK single-handedly.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Aiden Markram has scored 2 half-centuries in his last 3 innings for SRH and has emerged as the backbone of the middle-order. He has made 246 runs in 8 matches at an average of 123 and a strike rate of 148.19. Markram has scored 3 half-centuries.
Ravindra Jadeja is no more the captain of CSK and this might give him some more freedom to perform in the tournament. Currently, Jadeja has made 112 runs in 8 matches at an average of 22.40 and has taken 5 wickets at an economy of 8.19.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Umran Malik picked the first fifer of his T20 career in the last game against GT. Although SRH didn’t win the match, Umran went on to win the player of the match award. He has picked 15 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 15.93, an economy of 7.96, and a strike rate of 12.
Dwayne Bravo is the leading wicket-taker for Chennai Super Kings. He has taken 14 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 18.50, an economy of 8.73, and a strike rate of 12.7.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Nicholas Pooran has managed to score only 116 runs in 8 matches at an average of 38.66 and a strike rate of 120.83. He is yet to score over 35 runs in the tournament and you can back him to do well in this match.
