Fantasy Matchday 18, MI vs SRH: 5 Best Value for Money and Uncapped Players
KXIP did very well to defend a low score vs DD yesterday to move to the top of the IPL table. Kings XI successfully defended a target of 144, which is the lowest total that has been defended in this year’s IPL.
MI face SRH in today’s match at Mumbai, and MI will look to make amends for their loss vs SRH at Hyderabad. Billy Stanlake scored the first boundary of his career in the last ball of the match to seal the victory for SRH, in a game where Markande took 4-23, which is the best bowling figures in this year’s IPL.
MI are likely to retain the same eleven against SRH but SRH will be forced to make a few changes for the game. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has not travelled with the team to Mumbai and so Sandeep Sharma is expected to take his place.
SRH’s top order is heavily reliant on Williamson and they will look to bring in Hales for Rashid/Stanlake. Nabi would also a good option since MI have three left-handers in their top 5.

Here are some of our suggestions for you while picking your squad for today’s game.
5 Best Value for Money players
#1 Kane Williamson (9.7 M) – He should be one of the first names on your list for today’s game. Williamson has been consistent for SRH and will have to fire again for SRH to have a good chance against MI.
#2 Billy Stanlake (7.9 M) – He has been a vital cog in this SRH’s bowling line-up and the pitch in Mumbai will suit his style as there will be pace and bounce in the wicket. A very good differential option at that price.
#3 Shakib Al Hasan (9.3 M) – He has had opportunities to bat in every game and completed his quota of 4 overs too. A very good option at the price as he can give points with both bat and ball.
#4 Evin Lewis (9.8 M) – He got out in the first ball in the last game vs RR but has been in good touch for Mumbai Indians. He will have to fire for MI to put together a run of wins. Will he do it today against probably the best bowling lineup in IPL 2018?
#5 Mustafizur Rahman (9.3 M) – He did not have a great game against RR as Gowtham turned out to be the hero for RR in that game. He is bowling well, and with SRH’s middle order issues well known, he is likely to give you a lot of points in the death overs today. He took 3-24 in the last game against SRH.
5 Best Uncapped Players
#1 Krunal Pandya (8.9 M) – He is a must-have in your squad as he has consistently given points both with the bat and ball.
#2 Suryakumar Yadav (9.1 M) – He was the top scorer for MI in the last game for RR and will continue to open the batting for MI. A very good move by MI to push him up the order and they are reaping rewards.
#3 Ishan Kishan (8.6 M) – He batted well along with Suryakumar Yadav vs RR and he has been severe on the leg spinners in this IPL. Will he continue the same vs Rashid too?
#4 Siddharth Kaul (7.7 M) – He has been SRH’s most consistent bowler in this year's IPL and will have an important role to play in the absence of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.
#5 Mayank Markande (6.4 M) – He took 4-23 in the last game vs SRH as he ran through SRH’s fragile middle order. Will he repeat the same tonight?
