Rahul Tewatia has made 73 runs in 5 matches at an average of 36.50 and a strike rate of 187.17. He grabbed the headlines after hitting sixes off the last 2 deliveries against Punjab Kings. Tewatia is batting in the lower middle-order and hence, might be a risky captaincy choice.

Player you should avoid:
Vijay Shankar has managed to score 19 runs in 3 matches and is one player whom you can avoid in your fantasy team for this match.
