IPL 2021 action continues with a doubleheader on Thursday. The Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on the Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi in the first match.

Later in the day, the Delhi Capitals (DC) will go up against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

With Moeen Ali back in the CSK XI, I have opted to get him in my Fantasy Team instead of Suresh Raina.

Players playing in Match 23: Ravindra Jadeja, Kane Williamson, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Moeen Ali.

Captain: Moeen Ali. | Vice-Captain: Ravindra Jadeja.

Credits Remaining: 8.

As I already have three players from this match, of whom two are uncapped, I'll use my uncapped transfer on someone from the KKR-DC game while making my two regular transfers.

Deadline for Transfers: 3:30 PM IST on Thursday, 29th April.

Transfers

Transfers used: 2.

Transfers remaining: 65.


Uncapped Transfer

Ruturaj Gaikwad (BAT) (CSK) (8 Credits) - OUT: Ruturaj Gaikwad is the only viable uncapped option from CSK, and I'll be transferring him out every game, so that I'll be able to get him on an uncapped transfer.

Nitish Rana (BAT) (KKR) (8.5 Credits) - IN: Nitish Rana's form has dwindled since an excellent start to his campaign. With KKR's top order coming under the scanner, Rana will look to prove his doubters wrong.

Other Likely Uncapped Picks: Rahul Tewatia (ALL) (RR) (8.5 Credits), Yashasvi Jaiswal (BAT) (RR) (7 Credits), Riyan Parag (BAT) (RR) (7.5 Credits), Shreyas Gopal (BOWL) (RR) (8 Credits) and Chetan Sakariya (BOWL) (RR) (6 Credits).


1) Kane Williamson (SRH) (BAT) (9.5 Credits) - OUT: I'm selling Kane Williamson ahead of this game after his demotion to No. 4 on Manish Pandey's return to the side. He isn't likely to face too many balls if the top order does well, and there seem to be better options available in the SRH ranks.

Jos Buttler (RR) (WK) (10.5 Credits) - IN: I'm backing Jos Buttler for another match despite his struggles this season. The flat Delhi wicket could help him survive the initial period with the new ball before he gets his eye in.

2) Ravindra Jadeja (ALL) (CSK) (9 Credits) - OUT: I prefer to have Moeen Ali as my CSK representative, so I am releasing Jadeja. Jadeja could feature in my team in future games, though.

Jasprit Bumrah (BOWL) (CSK) (11 Credits) - IN: Jasprit Bumrah hasn't been among the wickets too much this season, as teams have looked to play him out. However, a change in venue could do him good, and he could get some wickets this game.

Chetan Sakariya (Playing), Glenn Maxwell, Varun Chakravarthy, Suryakumar Yadav (Playing), Jos Buttler (Playing), Rishabh Pant, Harshal Patel, Moeen Ali, Riyan Parag (Playing), Nitish Rana and Jasprit Bumrah (Playing).

I wouldn't have preferred to have these many uncapped players, but I'm pleased that I have five players for this match without disrupting my transfer pattern. I'm expecting good performances from Jos Buttler and Jasprit Bumrah, both of whom have had quiet campaigns.

Captain and Vice-Captain Picks: Suryakumar Yadav, Jos Buttler and Jasprit Bumrah.

Suryakumar Yadav and Jos Buttler both look like solid captaincy picks on a flat deck in an afternoon game. Jasprit Bumrah could slot in as well, depending on the toss and pitch report.

Chetan Sakariya (BOWL) (RR) (6 Credits): Chetan Sakariya has made an impressive start to his campaign. He'll look to deliver against the powerful MI batting lineup on Thursday.

Riyan Parag (RR) (BAT) (7.5 Credits): Riyan Parag offers excellent value at his price. He has played some vital cameos for RR and has also taken plenty of catches.

Suryakumar Yadav (MI) (BAT) (9.5 Credits): Suryakumar Yadav batted with seamless elegance on the sluggish Chennai tracks but couldn't stay at the crease for too long. The MI batsman will look to play a substantial knock and stay at the crease for a longer period.

Jasprit Bumrah (BOWL) (CSK) (11 Credits): With four wickets in five matches, Jasprit Bumrah won't be too pleased with his exploits this season. He has been unlucky not to get more wickets and will look to do well for MI this game.

Jos Buttler (RR) (WK) (10.5 Credits): Jos Buttler has struggled to settle down at the crease this season and has often been dismissed in the powerplay. He'll look to see out the new ball before going after the bowlers.

I'll continue making two regular and one uncapped transfer for this match as well. As I've already got one player from this game, I'll be using the uncapped transfer to get someone from the next game.

Deadline for Transfers: 7:30 PM IST on Thursday, 29th April.


Uncapped Transfer

Riyan Parag (BAT) (RR) (7.5 Credits) - OUT: Riyan Parag isn't cheap enough to retain for an uncapped pick, and since I already have Sakariya from RR, I'll be releasing him.

Devdutt Padikkal (BAT) (RCB) (9 Credits) - IN: Devdutt Padikkal has looked incredibly fluent at the top of the order for RCB. He has fallen after getting off to good starts in the last couple of games, though, and will look to do better against PBKS.


1) Jos Buttler (RR) (WK) (10.5 Credits) - OUT: Jos Buttler is expensive to hold on a long-term basis. I'll consider him once again for RR's future games.

Sunil Narine (KKR) (ALL) (9 Credits) - IN: Sunil Narine has done a decent job with the ball thus far, and he could also contribute with the bat in this match. He has walked out to bat at no. 4 in the last couple of games. While he hasn't made the most of those opportunities, he could do so against DC.

2) Jasprit Bumrah (MI) (BOWL) (11 Credits) - OUT: I'd prefer holding Suryakumar Yadav over Bumrah as my option from MI, so I am releasing the latter.

Kagiso Rabada (DC) (BOWL) (10.5 Credits) - IN: I'm backing Kaiso Rabada to come good against KKR. He has done well in the past against KKR and will back himself to bowl in the right areas in this match.


Best IPL Fantasy Team for Match 25 - DC vs KKR

Chetan Sakariya, Glenn Maxwell, Varun Chakravarthy (Playing), Suryakumar Yadav, Sunil Narine (Playing), Rishabh Pant (Playing), Harshal Patel, Moeen Ali, Devdutt Padikkal, Nitish Rana (Playing) and Kagiso Rabada (Playing).

With two batsmen, one all-rounder and two bowlers, I feel I have a well-balanced team for this match. I'm expecting the out-of-form Kagiso Rabada and Nitish Rana to have a good game, with Rishabh Pant likely to fire as well.

Captain and Vice-Captain Picks: Sunil Narine, Rishabh Pant, Kagiso Rabada and Nitish Rana.

Rishabh Pant, Sunil Narine and Kagiso Rabada will be my primary captaincy options for this match. As it's the second of two games in the day, it's difficult to decide the captain and vice-captain without waiting for the toss.

Kagiso Rabada (DC) (BOWL) (10.5 Credits): Kagiso Rabada is yet to hit his stride in the IPL this season. He'll look to do so against a KKR team against whom he has done well in the past.

Sunil Narine (KKR) (ALL) (9 Credits): Sunil Narine played a blazing innings at no. 4 against DC last season. He'll look to do something similar with the bat in this match while keeping things tight with the ball.

Nitish Rana (BAT) (KKR) (8.5 Credits): Nitish Rana hasn't played a big knock after his two half-centuries to open the season. He'll look to start cautiously before taking the attack to the bowlers in this match.

Rishabh Pant (DC) (WK) (10 Credits): Rishabh Pant would be devastated after his team agonisingly fell short by one run against RCB. He'll look to be back to timing the ball well in this match.

Varun Chakravarthy (KKR) (BOWL) (8 Credits): Varun Chakravarthy has done well with the ball this season. He bowled brilliantly against DC last campaign and will look to bamboozle the batsmen with his variations once more.
