Grand League Punts
Mohit Sharma is the third-highest wicket-taker among pacers this season with 17 wickets at an economy rate of 7.5. He has extensively bowled deliveries off the back of his hand, where he has picked up eight scalps - the highest among all pacers this season. He has been deadly at the death, picking up 10 wickets, strking once every 8.3 deliveries.
Michael Bracewell has always delivered with the ball when he has got the opportunity. On his return in the previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he picked up two wickets in an over to tilt the match in his side's favour. Overall, he has picked up six wickets in four games in the tournament at an economy rate of under eight. While he has not taken the tournament by storm with the bat, he has shown in the recent-past especially with New Zealand, that he certainly possess the capability to win the match on his own.
There is a case perhaps to pick a few RCB spinners in your team. They have picked three or more wickets on five instances this season. However, given that the match is being played at Chinnaswamy, it could get a little tricky as the RCB tweakers have managed just nine scalps at 37. High risk, high gain, perhaps?
