IPL Fantasy Cricket: Qualifier 2 Preview

CRICKET - IPL - Qualifier 2

With a place in the final of the Indian Premier League 2020 at stake, Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad meet in Qualifier 2 in Abu Dhabi. While Delhi were beaten by Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1, the Sunrisers continued their dream run defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator.

Both sides bring contrasting form and fortunes to the match. The Capitals have been sliding in the second-half of the IPL season. With questions around their mindset, Delhi have a lot to worry about. The Sunrisers, on the other hand, have won four in a row. That included a win over the Capitals in the league phase which sets this match up interestingly.

Delhi Capitals Preview

After a great start to the season, the Capitals have lost steam. Still, they are within one win of reaching an IPL final. Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan will be crucial to their batting hopes and should be top of your selection list.

Marcus Stoinis will be an interesting all-round pick, but all eyes will be on Kagiso Rabada. The South African speedster has been one of the best wicket-takers this season. Selecting him is another suitable choice for your side. Same goes with R Ashwin who enjoys challenges and could be a dark horse pick.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview

The Sunrisers have been one of the most consistent teams in the recent matches. Captain David Warner and Manish Pandey have been their bedrocks with the bat. Both command important positions in your fantasy side.

The most important position should, however, be reserved for Jason Holder. The Windies all-rounder has been exceptional for the Hyderabad side. With the ball, the ever-green Rashid Khan is a darling of fantasy selections, while T Natarajan is not far away! Of course, Sandeep Sharma’s classical swing bowling is another massive positive.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Kagiso Rabada is going through a great run of time. His presence in your side results in a lot of points..

Jason Holder has 55 runs (SR 144.73) and 13 wickets (ER 7.62) in just six matches that he played this season.

T Natarajan has been the yorker king of this season. He has 16 wickets (ER 8.02) and is Sunrisers’ best bowler behind Rashid Khan!
