IPL: Making Shikhar Dhawan the captain can be beneficial


The start of the IPL’s 15th season has been fantastic. The eighth match of the league will be played today at 7:30 p.m. between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings. Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host this match. Mayank Agarwal will be captaining the team ahead of Shreyas Iyer. On one hand, KKR will take the field today after losing their previous match to RCB.

On the other hand, there is the Punjab team, which won their first match against RCB. Let’s see who can be included in the Fantasy XI team for this intriguing match.

Bhanuka Rajapakse and Sheldon Jackson in the fantasy team as wicketkeepers for the match could be advantageous. Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s 43 runs at a strike rate of 196 in 22 balls in the last match demonstrated that he could be Punjab’s top order throughout the season. In this innings, there were definitely two fours, but he hit four sixes with his bat.

Bhanuka’s ability to hit for six runs makes him a strong candidate for the Fantasy-11 team. Although KKR wicketkeeper Sheldon Jackson’s bat has been silent thus far, he has the ability to make a strong comeback. Jackson has more than 5000 runs in first-class cricket. This season, he has wowed everyone with his stumpings and catching while keeping for KKR.


In Fantasy 11, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Mayank Agarwal can be selected as batsmen. Gabbar is no longer a member of Team India, but his bat is still blazing in the IPL. He scored 43 runs at a strike rate of around 150 in the first match of the season, demonstrating that he still has a hunger for runs. Shreyas, who had won the first match for Kolkata by going undefeated, sat a little hastily in the second match. In such a circumstance, he will not throw his wicket today. While playing for Team India, he recently won the Man of the Tournament award.

Mayank, who was captaining the IPL for the first time, hit two fours and two sixes in the first match against RCB while bowling at a strike rate of 133. Mayank, who has amassed over 400 runs in the last two seasons, is expected to bat aggressively today.
