Top Fantasy Predictions for DEL vs HYD: Batters and Wicket-Keepers
With 110, 76, 17, and 80 in his 4 matches, Bairstow has been a star performer for Hyderabad season.
Bairstow has played only 3 matches against Delhi but in these 3 matches he has scores of 53, 41 and 48 and thus has given at least 50+ fantasy points in each of the matches.
About 63% of his runs this season have come in boundaries only and thus he does give you extra boundary bonus apart from runs.
Given that he is now wicketkeeping, there is always a chance of getting additional points apart from runs in the form of stumpings/catches/runouts.
He has a Fantasy Gully rating of 9.8 which is the highest among all players for this fixture.
With 130 runs in 4 matches David Warner has given 70, 50, 85 and 7 fantasy points respectively in his 4 matches this season and thus has been very consistent barring just the 1st match.
He has scores of 2, 66, 45 & 51 in his last 4 matches against Delhi and thus has given great returns in 3 out of the 4 matches. Overall, he averages 40 with the bat against Delhi in the Indian T20 league and thus Delhi is one of his favorite opponents.
His Fantasy Gully rating for this match is 8.9 which is the 2nd highest among all players for this fixture.
No batsman has performed as consistently as Shikhar has this season as in 4 matches he has scored 231 runs. He has scored 60, 135, 42 and 143 fantasy points respectively in his 4 matches and thus has been part of the Dream team on every occasion so far in this season.
He has a good record with the bat at Chennai as in his last 6 T20 matches here, he has scores of 45, 19, 92, 26, 63 & 36 and thus has given great fantasy returns in these matches here.
Most of the runs this season at Chennai have been scored in the powerplay overs and thus an opener like Shikhar Dhawan can give you loads of fantasy points.
Top Fantasy Predictions for DEL vs HYD: Bowlers
With T Natarajan ruled out, Khaleel will continue to play for Hyderabad and will certainly be looking to give more points as already in his 2 matches he has given <> and 32 fantasy points.
Khaleel has played only 19 matches in the Indian T20 league and has taken a total of 31 wickets with being wicketless in only 4 of these matches which proves that he guarantees fantasy points in almost every match and has given at least 50 fantasy points per match in all the other 15 matches.
Khaleel Ahmed has taken 1/43, 2/24 and 3/30 against Delhi in his 3 matches and thus has given more than decent fantasy points in each of these matches.
With 8 wickets in 4 matches, Avesh Khan has guaranteed fantasy points in every match and has scored 54, 29, 83 and 74 fantasy points respectively this season.
Out of his 13 wickets (in 13 matches) overall in the Indian T20 league, 8 have come in this season alone in 4 matches which shows that he has become a more improved bowler.
He has certainly carried his form in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy in which he took 14 wickets in just 5 matches with never being wicketless in a match into this season as well.
He has scored an average of 66 fantasy points in his last 10 T20 matches which exactly shows his sublime form.
With 4-wicket haul in the last match, Amit Mishra’s confidence will be sky high and will look to carry the same momentum in this match as well.
A track like Chennai is perfectly suited for Amit Mishra and he can spin his web around the struggling middle order of Hyderabad as he mostly bowls in the middle phase of the innings.
At Chennai in the Indian T20 league, he has taken 10 wickets in 7 matches which is a great number.
Last season he did play 1 match against Hyderabad and took 2/35 in that match.
Top Fantasy Predictions for DEL vs HYD: All-Rounders
After not doing so well in the first 2 matches, Stoinis was back at his best in the 2 last matches as he scored 31 and 50 fantasy points.
Stoinis played 3 matches against Hyderabad last season in which he took 3 wickets and scored 54 runs with the bat and thus gave an average of 45+ fantasy points per match against Delhi last season.
With Delhi opting for an extra batsman instead of Woakes, chances of Stoinis being used as a bowler more have increased and thus, he can end up bowling at least 2 overs which he did in the last match and took a wicket as well.
After scoring 28 and taking 2 wickets against Mumbai, Vijay was ineffective in the last match, however it was a low scoring match, and all the runs were already made by the Hyderabad openers.
Having said that, he did bowl 1 over in the last match which shows that Warner can give him more chances to bowl in future matches as well which can increase his wicket taking opportunities.
Last season he did take a wicket in his only match against Delhi which proves that he might be a batting all-rounder, but his bowling can also do the talking.
There are few options to choose from the all-rounders in this fixture and thus Vijay Shankar can be preferred in the team.
