The Delhi Capitals take on the Lucknow Supergiants in the 45th match of Tata IPL 2022 on Sunday, May 1, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. This match will also be the first of a doubleheader, with SRH and CSK battling it out later.
Players playing in Match 44: Tilak Varma (BAT) (MI) (6 Credits), Jos Buttler (WK) (RR) (10.5 Credits), Kuldeep Sen (BOWL) (RR) (6 Credits), Yuzvendra Chahal (BOWL) (RR) (9.5 Credits), and Kieron Pollard (BAT) (MI) (8.5 Credits)
Captain: Yuzvendra Chahal | Vice-captain: Kieron Pollard
Credits Remaining: 2.5
I have three players from this match, and I'll make one regular and one uncapped transfer.
Transfer Deadline: 07:30 PM IST on Sunday, May 1
Note: The suggested team is subject to change depending on the toss or other unexpected team news. Any such changes will be updated for the next game.
Transfers used: 1 Transfers remaining: 53
1) Tilak Varma (BAT) (MI) (6 Credits) - OUT | Kuldeep Yadav (BOWL) (DC) (8 Credits) - IN
2) Kieron Pollard (BAT) (MI) (8.5 Credits) - OUT | Rahul Tripathi (BAT) (SRH) (8 Credits) - IN (Uncapped Transfer)
The transfers for this match are very simple to understand. Kuldeep Yadav is picking up wickets left, right, and center, regardless of the conditions he's playing in. At eight credits, he's a budget-friendly option with which I can nail down a bowler's slot in my team. I'll be doing myself a disservice if I take him out of my team again.
My uncapped transfer is Rahul Tripathi, from the next match between CSK and SRH. MI's next game is M51, and that's why the two MI players go out.
I'll have one credit to spend on future transfers after these changes.
IPL 2022 Fantasy Team for Match 45 - DC vs LSG
I was a bit hard done by Jos Buttler's good score against MI despite looking scratchy for most of his innings, but that's what good batters do, I suppose. That's the risk I take going against them. Despite that, it wasn't a bad Saturday in any sense since I didn't drop in rank that much.
I'm confident in my picks for today's matches, with two in-form spinners coming off POM-winning performances and two top batters in Rahul and Warner. There isn't much to say about these players. All I'm hoping for is that they don't get in each other's way and produce some excellent performances.
Best IPL Fantasy Team for Match 45 - Summary
Players playing in Match 45: KL Rahul (WK) (LSG) (12 Credits), David Warner (BAT) (DC) (10.5 Credits), Krunal Pandya (ALL) (LSG) (8 Credits), and Kuldeep Yadav (BOWL) (DC) (8 Credits)
Captaincy: I could captain pretty much any of these players, considering their exploits in recent matches. If I had to name one player who I'm edging closer towards, it would probably be David Warner.
