The Punjab Kings will square off against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first game, with the Kolkata Knight Riders taking on the Chennai Super Kings later in the day.

IPL Fantasy players need to note that they would have to make their transfers separately for both games, with the deadline for the first game being 3:30 PM IST and the second one being 7:30 PM.

I have Arshdeep Singh as one of my uncapped options from the first game. I will be making three regular transfers for the PBKS-SRH game and use my uncapped transfer to get someone in from the KKR-CSK one.

Deadline for Transfers: 3:30 PM IST on Wednesday, 21st April.

Transfers

Transfers used: 3.

Transfers remaining: 84.


Uncapped Transfers

Trent Boult (MI) (BOWL) (9.5 Credits) - OUT: Boult is an overseas player, and considering that I might need some overseas slots freed up, I'm opting to release him.

Rahul Tripathi (KKR) (BAT) (7.5 Credits) - IN: Rahul Tripathi looks like he could have some success at the Wankhede. He has batted well at no. 3 and considering that he's a good player of the short ball, he could have a good game.

Other Likely Uncapped Picks: Arshdeep Singh (BOWL) (PBKS) (7.5 Credits), Deepak Hooda (BAT) (PBKS) (7 Credits), Shah Rukh Khan (BAT) (PBKS) (6.5 Credits), and Abdul Samad (BAT) (SRH) (6.5 Credits).


1) Shikhar Dhawan (BAT) (DC) (10.5 Credits) - OUT: With DC playing next only after seven games, it makes sense to release their assets from my team.

KL Rahul (PBKS) (WK) (11.5 Credits) - IN: PBKS play another game, so KL Rahul is duly back in my team. He'll look to improve his strike rate and play a match-winning knock for his side and get them a much-needed win.

2) Kagiso Rabada (DC) (BOWL) (10.5 Credits) - OUT: I'm releasing Rabada for the same reason I let Dhawan go. With DC playing seven games later, it isn't prudent to hold such an expensive player in my team.

Rashid Khan (SRH) (BOWL) (10.5 Credits) - IN: Rashid Khan has been good with the ball for SRH, especially on the slow Chennai tracks. He has had tremendous success against the PBKS batsmen in the past and should pick up some wickets in this game too.

3) Ishan Kishan (MI) (WK) (9 Credits) - OUT: I'm finally transferring Ishan Kishan out of my team, preferring to hold SKY as my MI option instead.

Jonny Bairstow (SRH) (WK) (9.5 Credits) - IN: Jonny Bairstow comes into this game in good form, and he has a decent record against PBKS. Expect him to pile up the runs in this encounter.

Note: Kane Williamson (SRH) (BAT) (9.5 Credits) is a worthy alternative to Bairstow if he plays.


Best IPL Fantasy Team for Match 14 PBKS vs SRH:

Shubman Gill, Jonny Bairstow (Playing), Arshdeep Singh (Playing), Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Harshal Patel, Rashid Khan (Playing), KL Rahul (Playing), Moeen Ali, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Playing).

Suggested Team for IPL 2021 Match 14- PBKS vs SRH.
Suggested Team for IPL 2021 Match 14- PBKS vs SRH.

I was particular that I had Rashid Khan for this match after seeing his success against PBKS last season.

As always, I expect Rahul to come good even on a tricky batting surface, while Bairstow should get some runs as well. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh should use their variations to good effect. Overall, I'm happy with the two batters-three bowlers combination I have for this game.


Captaincy Picks

Captain and Vice-Captain Picks: KL Rahul, Rashid Khan and Jonny Bairstow.

Rashid Khan is sure to feature in my captaincy picks on the slow Chennai surface against a nervy PBKS batting lineup. KL Rahul and Bairstow are good options to consider as well. Who I go with ultimately will depend on the toss and pitch report, considering that game is an afternoon affair.

Arshdeep Singh (PBKS) (BOWL) (7.5 Credits): Arshdeep Singh has been impressive in PBKS' first three games. He'll look to make an impact in the upcoming games as well.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (BOWL) (SRH) (9 Credits): Bhuvneshwar Kumar hasn't carried on his form from the England series into the IPL. He hasn't been bowling according to the surface and could look to rectify that in this game.

Jonny Bairstow (SRH) (WK) (9.5 Credits): Jonny Bairstow batted well against the PBKS bowlers in his last two meetings in 2020. Expect him to produce another solid performance in the IPL on Wednesday.

KL Rahul (PBKS) (WK) (11.5 Credits): KL Rahul should aim to score at a brisker pace in this match and lead his side to a victory in the first game of their IPL 2021 Chennai leg.

Rashid Khan (SRH) (BOWL) (10.5 Credits): With 16 wickets in eight games against PBKS at an economy rate of 6.12, Rashid Khan has had tremendous success against the Punjab Kings. He's likely to be in my captaincy plans, especially if SRH bowl second in this IPL game.

The team suggested for IPL 2021 Match 14.

This game should be a high-scoring one, so IPL Fantasy players should fill their team with batters and all-rounders. Since I already have three players from this match, I'm sticking with my practice of going with two regular and one uncapped transfer, though the uncapped player will be from the RCB-RR game.

Deadline for Transfers: 7:30 PM IST on Wednesday, 21st April.


Transfers

Transfers used: 2.

Transfers remaining: 82.


Uncapped Transfers

KL Rahul (PBKS) (WK) (11.5 Credits) - OUT: I'm releasing Rahul ahead of this game. He'll be back in my team for PBKS' clash against MI on Friday.

Devdutt Padikkal (BAT) (RCB) (9 Credits)- IN: Watching Padikkal struggle in his first two outings this season, it's easy to forget that he was RCB's highest run-scorer last season. He's a class player and should come good for RCB in their next game, though.


1) Jonny Bairstow (SRH) (WK) (9.5 Credits) - OUT: Bairstow's place in the team is always at risk, despite his decent performances so far. While he's an explosive option to consider if he plays, I'll be dropping him, especially with SRH not featuring until Sunday.

Suresh Raina (CSK) (BAT) (9.5 Credits) - IN: After a couple of lacklustre outings, Suresh Raina will look to get back to form against one of his favourite opponents. His batting at number four has reduced his chances of getting runs in the powerplay, but considering KKR's good new ball attack, he should get to bat and score some runs for his side.

2) Bhuvneshwar Kumar (SRH) (BOWL) (9 Credits) - OUT: Bhuvneshwar Kumar hasn't really inspired confidence on his return to the IPL. His fellow SRH bowlers have found it easier to bowl on the Chennai track, and while I'll consider him for games at other venues, I feel that removing him is the right choice for now.

Andre Russell (KKR) (ALL) (11 Credits) - IN: Andre Russell got some much-needed runs under his belt in KKR's loss to RCB. He'll look to bounce back with his bowling at the death after being taken down by ABD. The Wankhede wicket should suit him nicely, and he should get some runs with the bat as well.


Best IPL Fantasy Team for Match 15 KKR vs CSK:

Shubman Gill (Playing), Suresh Raina (Playing), Arshdeep Singh, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi (Playing), Harshal Patel, Rashid Khan, Devdutt Padikkal, Moeen Ali (Playing), and Andre Russell (Playing).

Suggested Team for IPL 2021 Match 15- KKR vs CSK.
Suggested Team for IPL 2021 Match 15- KKR vs CSK.

I'm pretty happy with the mix of players I have for this game. Not having Andre Russell for the last two games did scare me, and I missed out on quite a few points there. However, I'm expecting both him and Suresh Raina to do well on a batting-friendly Wankhede track.


Captaincy Picks

Captain and Vice-Captain Picks: Moeen Ali, Andre Russell, Suresh Raina, and Shubman Gill.

Moeen Ali has emerged as a standout captaincy option this season, and I won't be surprised if he hauls big in this game as well. Andre Russell and Suresh Raina are, as always, solid options to consider. The two young KKR batters in Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi could prove to be good differential picks as well.

Moeen Ali (CSK) (ALL) (8.5 Credits): Moeen Ali has got off to some great starts but has been guilty of throwing his wicket away. He'll look to play with some more composure and get a good score in this match.

Shubman Gill (BAT) (KKR) (9 Credits): With 69 runs at a strike rate of 150, Shubman Gill's IPL 2021 campaign has got off to a middling start. While he'll be pleased with the improvement in his strike rate, he'll look to stay at the crease longer and play a more substantial knock for his team.

Rahul Tripathi (KKR) (BAT) (7.5 Credits): Rahul Tripathi was the 'Man of the Match' in KKR's win over CSK last season. He has looked very comfortable at number three and will look to get a good score against CSK.

Andre Russell (KKR) (ALL) (11 Credits): Andre Russell has a high ceiling for points and could contribute with both bat and ball in this match. Expect him to deliver the goods in this crucial game for his team.

Suresh Raina (CSK) (BAT) (9.5 Credits): Suresh Raina batted beautifully in CSK's opener against DC but struggled to get his timing right against PBKS and RR. He'll look to regain his mojo against the KKR bowlers and get back among the runs on Wednesday.
