Grand League Punts

With the pitch slowly tilting towards assisting the spinners a little more, there is a case to play R Sai Kishore in the XI or maybe rope him as an impact sub. GT went in with Jayant Yadav against Lucknow given that they had three left-handers in their top five. In T20 cricket since 2020, the left-arm spinner has dismissed 10 left-handers at 10.9 (ER 6.7), while against right-handed batters he has picked up 14 wickets at 23.1 (ER 5.5). 

Shams Mulani a better option than Hrithik Shokeen? Among Indians in T20s since 2021, Mulani has picked up 16 wickets at 15.9 and strike-rate of 14.6. Among bowlers who have picked up as many wickets at him in this period the aforementioned numbers are the best. Should the left-arm spinner get a look in?
