Suggested Selections for Fantasy Cricket Team
Batsmen: David Warner has had a wonderful run so far with the SRH with a smashing 85 off 53 balls against KKR and is a sure shot point earner for your fantasy team as well. AB de Villiers with his 70 from 41 balls against Mumbai Indians would be a power pick for your team.
