Grand League Punts
> Having picked up a staggering 12 wickets in the powerplay, Mohammed Shami is bowling as well as any pacer ever has with the new ball in IPL history. He scalped 4 with the new ball against DC and bowled an outstanding first spell in the reverse fixture vs RR, finishing with 1/9 off 2, taking the big wicket of Buttler. Captain or vice-captain this bloke without thinking twice.
> Here's a very underrated pick, but a must-have: Noor Ahmad. The young Afghan spinner has taken 7 wickets in his last 4 games and he churns out dismissals for fun. Considering Jaipur is a venue where spinners, so far this season, have boasted a much better average (28.3 vs 36.2) and S.R (22 vs 25.6) than the pacers, Noor is set to be more than a handful.
> Mohit Sharma is another must-have in your XI. The veteran has played only six matches this season but has remarkably picked up FOUR 2-wicket hauls. He thrives on sticky surfaces and a wicket like Jaipur, which more often than not tends to be on the slower side, could just be tailor-made for Mohit to pile misery on the RR batters.
