Top Picks for GT vs SRH Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Rahul Tripathi has remained not-out in 3 out of 7 matches for SRH. Against KKR, he made 71 runs off just 37 deliveries and helped the team win the match by 7 wickets after chasing a target of 176 runs in just 17.5 overs. He has made 212 runs in 7 matches at an average of 53 and a strike rate of 175.20.
David Miller was involved in a 50-runs partnership along with Hardik Pandya for the third wicket against KKR in the last match. Just before this game, he went berserk against the bowling lineup of defending champions CSK and scored 94 runs off just 51 deliveries. Miller might have attained the form for which he is known and that might be alarming for other teams.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Hardik Pandya has been going through a purple patch and has emerged as one of the best all-rounders in this edition of the league. With the bat, he has scored 295 runs at an average of 73.75 and a strike rate of 136.57 including 3 half-centuries. He has also picked 4 wickets at an average of 35.
Aiden Markram has scored 2 half-centuries in 7 matches. He has been dismissed for less than 20 runs only once and has become the backbone of SRH’s batting lineup. He has made 190 runs at a strike rate of 150.79.
Top Picks – Bowlers
T Natarajan has taken 15 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 14.53, an economy of 8.07, and a strike rate of 10.8. He is one of the most lethal bowlers when it comes to death overs and is a must-have in your fantasy team.
Rashid Khan has picked 8 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 22.75, an economy of 6.50, and a strike rate of 21. He has also contributed with the bat for GT. He is one of the bowlers whom you should never leave out of your fantasy team.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Nicholas Pooran has scored over 30 runs thrice in the tournament and is an important member of SRH’s middle-order.

GT vs SRH Risky Captaincy Choices:
Abhishek Sharma is the leading run-scorer for SRH in the tournament. He has made 220 runs in 7 matches at an average of 31.42 and a strike rate of 125.71. He has scored over 30 runs in 2 out of the last 3 innings, however, has not been able to convert the same into a half-century. Abhishek has been providing the right kind of start to SRH and that is why he should be on your fantasy team. But, he is definitely a risky choice when it comes to picking the captain of your team.
Wriddhiman Saha made his debut for GT against Chennai Super Kings and could make only 11 runs off 18 deliveries. In the next match, Saha made 25 runs off 25 deliveries and added 75 runs for the second wicket.
Player you should avoid:
Shashank Singh has not been able to pick a wicket and has not been able to score runs as well. You can avoid him in your fantasy team for this match.
