1) Shikhar Dhawan (BAT) (PBKS) (10 Credits) - OUT| Wanindu Hasaranga (ALL) (RCB) (9 Credits) - IN.
2) Nicholas Pooran (WK) (SRH) (9 Credits) - OUT| Tilak Varma (BAT) (MI) (6 Credits) - IN. (Uncapped Transfer).
The Wankhede Stadium has been the lowest-scoring of all three venues this season, and I'm expecting another sluggish encounter between RR and RCB on Tuesday. As a result, I'm settling for only one transfer in, with my uncapped player also from the next match.
Tilak Varma was scintillating to watch against RR, and his performance with the bat was one of the positives despite the defeat for MI. Expect him to light up the Wankhede once more.
The in-form Wanindu Hasaranga is one to watch out for in this game. Despite the high proportion of left-handers in RR's lineup, he should be the strike bowler in the middle overs for RCB. He could also have a role to play with the bat, considering how strong RR's bowling lineup is.
Shikhar Dhawan and Nicholas Pooran are my transfers out. While Pooran was an obvious choice to transfer out, I had the option of retaining Dhawan and selling Quinton de Kock. However, with LSG having a quick turnaround before their next game, it made more sense to hold de Kock over Dhawan.
While I have stopped with one transfer, for now, I can change my decision and select another player based on the pitch report and toss.
I'll have four credits to spend after making the transfers.
IPL 2022 Fantasy Team for Match 13 - RR vs RCB
While Nicholas Pooran could've gotten me some more points, I'm happy with how the last game went, with the Power Wicketkeeper booster working well. I hope to carry this momentum into the new week and maintain my good transfer efficiency.
Having only three players from this match could be risky, but it could prove valuable if the limited players I select do perform well. While I don't expect much from young Yashasvi Jaiswal, both Yuzvendra Chahal and Wanindu Hasaranga could extend their excellent start to the season.
With an exciting roster of games to follow, I'm looking forward to this week's Tata IPL 2022.
Best IPL Fantasy Team for Match 13 - Summary
Players playing in Match 13: Yuzvendra Chahal (BOWL) (RR) (9.5 Credits), Yashasvi Jaiswal (BAT) (RR) (8 Credits), and Wanindu Hasaranga (ALL) (RCB) (9 Credits).
Captaincy: If I do stick with only three players from this match, the captaincy debate will only be between Yuzvendra Chahal and Wanindu Hasaranga. The toss will help me decide between the two leg-spinners.
