Playing XI Updates
Jammu and Kashmir
No changes are expected of Jammu and Kashmir after a good show against Delhi. Manzoor Dar hasn't yet come off in the tournament so far while the likes of Irfan Pathan and Parvez Rasool will be key against a good Andhra side. Their bowling leaked runs against Delhi and will be hoping for a better performance with their campaign seemingly on the line.
Possible XI: Samad, Wadhwan, Khajuria, Dar, Rasool(C), Pathan, Pundir, Raina(WK), Salam, Raza and Yousuf
Like their opponents, Andhra should stick with the same eleven that played against Kerala with Hanuma Vihari and Ashwin Hebbar opening the batting. Both of them have failed with the bat so far and will be looking to provide their team with a good start. Ricky Bhui's form makes him the prized wicket the Jammu bowlers will be after. Girinath Reddy and Prasanth Kumar's performance in the previous game should delight Andhra's management and hope for more of the same from them.
Possible XI: Vihari(C), Hebbar, Bhui, Bharat(WK), Prasanth, Ravi Teja, Girinath, Karn, Ayyappa, Ismail and Sasikanth.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Srikar Bharat is the ideal option to have as a keeper with his counterpart, Raina batting too deep in the J&K batting order. Bharat is capable of scoring at a good rate with the chances of him doing well on Monday being very high.
Batsmen: Hanuma Vihari and Ricky Bhui are great options to have in the side considering their form and abilities while the likes of Manzoor Dar and Shubham Khajuria could also be worthwhile options. Ashwin Hebbar has also looked good in patches and could slot in for either of two Andhra batsmen.
All-rounders: Karn Sharma is a must have in the side with the leggie bound to pick a few wickets against an inexperienced Jammu batting unit. Parvez Rasool and Irfan Pathan are also great options for the fantasy side as well with both of them in good form.
Bowlers: Bandaru Ayyappa's death bowling in the previous match was spot on and should be picked along with Waseem Raza and KV Sasikanth. Ismail also had a great match against Kerala and could slot in for Sasikanth.
Captain: Hanuma Vihari is one of the most consistent players in the domestic circuit and should be backed to score heavily on Monday while the likes of Rasool and Karn Sharma are also possible options for captain:
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Srikar Bharat (WK), Hanuma Vihari, Ricky Bhui, Shubham Khajuria, Manzoor Dar, Karn Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Parvez Rasool, K Sasikanth, Bandaru Ayyappa and Waseem Raza. Captain: Hanuma Vihari
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Srikar Bharat (WK), Hanuma Vihari, Ashwin Hebbar, Jatin Wadhwan, Manzoor Dar, Karn Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Parvez Rasool, Waseem Raza, Bandaru Ayyappa and SK Ismail. Captain: Parvez Rasool
