Suggested Selections for Fantasy Cricket Team
David Warner would be a powerful pick for your team as he has performed quite well over the past couple of months and the venue is his favourite one as well. Jos Buttler can be picked for the wicket keeping and he looks quite in form with his batting. Ben Stokes, the all rounder, is a good option to go with as well as Vijay Shankar who made a decent 40 off 24 in the last game. If Kane Williamson is fit to play then he can be picked as the Captain. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has a good record playing against RR and can be fruitful.
