Team News- Bengaluru Bulls
The Bulls have seen skipper Rohit Kumar have a season with oscillating fortunes but he came up with a strong 13-point performance to lead the side to victory while Pawan Sehrawat and Mohit Sehrawat picked up 8 and 5 points respectively. Banty had a bad game and could make way for Sumit Singh.
Mahender Singh in the left cover and Saurabh Nandal in the right corner did very well while Amit Sheoran blanked although he's likely to retain his place.
Predicted Starting 7: Rohit Kumar (C), Pawan Sehrawat, Mohit Sehrawat, Mahender Singh, Amit Sheoran, Banty/ Sumit Singh, and Saurabh Nandal.
Team News- Gujarat Fortune Giants
Sachin Tanwar's injury has left Gujarat lacking raiding might and the trio of Rohit Gulia, More GB and Abolfazl Maghsoudlou got 4 raid points apiece and are likely to retain their place.
In defense, Sumit is likely to replace Pankaj in the left corner while the rest of the defense, especially the star cover combination of Sunil Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal could be backed to do well.
Predicted Starting 7: Sunil Kumar (C), Parvesh Bhainswal, More GB, Rohit Gulia, Ruturaj Koravi, Sumit and Abolfazl Maghsoudlou
Dream 11 Fantasy Tips
Raiders: Pawan Sehrawat, Rohit Kumar and Abolfazl Maghsoudlou should be the only raiding options who should be considered with Pawan being a must-have while Rohit will suffice only if one does not want to invest too high on credits in terms of the defenders.
All-Rounders: Rohit Gulia and More GB will be the preferred all-rounder picks and can deliver huge hauls while Mohit Sehrawat, at 11.5 credits, is a budget-saving pick.
Defenders: Sunil Kumar, Amit Sheoran, Mahender Singh and Parvesh Bhainswal are the main defensive options while players like Saurabh Nandal, Sumit and Ruturaj Koravi are good cut-price options. With these many options, a minimum of 3 defenders is a must.
