Grand League punts
Delhi have been struggling in the batting department but David Warner has been amongst runs. In seven innings this season, the left-handed opener has amassed 306 runs at an average of 43.71. His strike rate has been a concern but that shouldn’t bother us.
Axar Patel is a safe option when it comes to fantasy cricket. The left-hander is not only DC’s second-highest run-getter but has also been amongst wickets of late. Axar has scored 182 runs at an average of 30.33 and a strike rate of 135.8 in this edition, and also claimed five wickets in his last three games.
Mayank Markande has been the leading wicket-taker for Hyderabad this season. The legspinner has scalped eight wickets at an economy of 6.7 and a strike rate of 15.
