Top Fantasy Predictions for MUM vs RAJ: Batters and Wicket-Keepers
With 201 runs in 5 matches Rohit is the leading run getter for Mumbai this season and has given 84, 63, 46, 58 and 26 fantasy points which is very much consistent.
He has a good record at Delhi in T20 matches as in his 16 matches here he has scored 512 runs (strike rate of 145) which includes 4 fifties and 4 thirties and if we are to convert this into fantasy points per match then it comes down to 45 which is a great number.
Given that de Kock is struggling to get going, Rohit has not played aggressively and is batting with a role of an anchor and thus occupies the crease for a long time which can get you more runs.
Jos Buttler has been on and off this season but given that this match is against Mumbai, he can be preferred as the only other options are Ishan Kishan and de Kock who have been flop so far this season and Sanju Samson who has performed in odd matches.
Moreover, against Mumbai Jos has a great record in the Indian T20 league as in his 4 batting innings against them he has scores of 70, 89, 94* and 6 and thus in 3 out of these 4 matches he has given loads of fantasy points.
Also, this match is at Delhi where Buttler has scored 173 runs (at a strike rate of 180) in 5 matches and thus has given an average of 50+ fantasy points per match at this venue which is a great number.

Since joining Mumbai, he has played against Rajasthan in 6 matches and his scores in these matches read 40, 79*, 34, 16, 38 and 72 and thus barring just 1 match he has given great returns (close to 45+ fantasy points).
A little more than 2/3rd of his runs this season have come in boundaries (106 out of 154 runs) and thus if he bats long, there is a chance of getting a good boundary bonus as well.
With 52 fantasy points per match this season, Suryakumar Yadav is an in-form pick.

Boult scored 37, 72 and 107 in his first 3 matches respectively but in the recent 2 matches he has not delivered with the ball and thus you can expect him to bounce back soon as this match is at Delhi, a ground wherein he has given decent returns in recent matches.
