Power Pick for Grand Leagues
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is our power pick player for today’s match between SRH and RR.
His last 9 IPL matches stats – 12 wickets, 21.85 avg., 172 S/R, 1 four-wicket haul.
(Pick him only in Grand Leagues)
Shakib Al Hasan is a risky choice to pick because if Kane Williamson plays the match, Shakib will most likely have to sit out.
Thus, it’s better not to pick both of them for the small leagues.
