Transfers

Transfers used: 4 Transfers remaining: 6.

1) Moeen Ali (ALL) (CSK) (8.5 Credits) - OUT. | Varun Chakravarthy (BOWL) (KKR) (8 Credits) - IN. (Uncapped Transfer)

2) Axar Patel (ALL) (DC) (9 Credits) - OUT. | Glenn Maxwell (ALL) (RCB) (9 Credits) - IN.

3) Shardul Thakur (BOWL) (CSK) (8.5 Credits) - OUT. | Virat Kohli (RCB) (BAT) (12 Credits) - IN.

4) Faf Du Plessis (CSK) (BAT) (9.5 Credits) - OUT. | Lockie Ferguson (BOWL) (KKR) (8.5 Credits) - IN.

5) Ravindra Jadeja (ALL) (CSK) (9 Credits) - OUT. | Shubman Gill (BAT) (KKR) (9 Credits) - IN.

I've gone with four regular and one uncapped transfer for this match, as it'll help me field eight players. Openers should score a fair share of the runs in Sharjah, and that's why I've persisted with Virat Kohli and doubled up on KKR with the in-form Shubman Gill. Glenn Maxwell is a captaincy candidate and a must-have, as he's likely to get some overs in addition to his batting exploits.

Lockie Ferguson has been a massive part of KKR's success in the IPL this year. His pace makes his slower deliveries and variations difficult to read, and he could be extremely effective on this surface. I had a couple of other options to consider as my uncapped transfer. But it makes sense to go with the bowler who spun a web around the RCB batters last time around. I'll have 0.5 credits after making the above transfers.

I'm pretty happy with the team I've planned for this match, although I'd like to include a few differential picks. Maxwell, Harshal Patel, and Venkatesh Iyer are must-haves, considering the IPL Fantasy value they offer. Patel is the highest point-scorer of the season, and he should be in the reckoning for a few more points.

Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill could get a good score in this match. Looking to stop Kohli from doing so will be Varun Chakravarthy and Lockie Ferguson, who have been solid with the ball. AB De Villiers is my differential of sorts for this match, and I'm strongly backing him to end his lean run in the UAE leg with a good knock in Sharjah.

Captaincy: While I'm considering playing it safe by handing the captaincy to Maxwell, it is something I'll finalise only after the toss.
