Top Picks for MI vs RR Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Rohit Sharma played a captain’s innings and gave a perfect start for Mumbai Indians against Delhi Capitals. He got dismissed after scoring 41 runs from 32 balls. If he stays more than 10 overs then we can expect a big score from his willow.
Devdutt Padikkal in his new role for Rajasthan Royals played some delightful strokes against Sunrisers before getting dismissed for 41 runs. It will be interesting how he approaches his innings against Mumbai Indians.
Top Picks – All-Rounder
Daniel Sams didn’t have the best of outings in the last game against Delhi Capitals where he went 14.25 runs an over. It’s just a matter of time for him to make a comeback.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Murugan Ashwin proved that he is up for the task in his first outing for Mumbai Indians. He just conceded 14 runs in his 4 overs against Delhi Capitals and more importantly picked up 2 wickets.
Yuzvendra Chahal will be delighted with his bowling performances against Sunrisers. He claimed 3 wickets at an economy of 5.5. He reads the batter’s mind quickly and his game knowledge has been immense.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Holding the price tag of the most expensive pick in the IPL auction 2022, Ishan Kishan made sure he is worth a single penny and played a superb unbeaten knock of 81* runs against Delhi Capitals. We can expect more fireworks from him in this match..
