Lions XI boast a better head-to-head record over Bulls XI in the Pondicherry T20 cricket tournament, winning two of the three meetings between the two sides so far.

Given their impressive start to the campaign with a five-wicket win against Sharks XI and advantage in head-to-head, Lions XI will start as favourites against Bulls XI on Thursday.

BUL vs LIO Dream11 team tips for Pondicherry T20 2022

Top Tip: Best batter 

Lions XI’s Akash Pugazhendi will be the batter to watch out for. The 18-year-old hit a 42-ball 72 in his last outing at an impressive strike rate of 153.2. Akash, who has amassed 115 fantasy points, will be a worthy fantasy pick at 8.5 credits.

Top Tip: Best bowler

In the bowling department, Shishir HR of Lions XI could be the standout pick. With 60 fantasy points so far, Shishir grabbed two wickets against Tuskers XI in the opening game. Priced at 8.5 credits, the left-arm spinner is likely to return to the playing XI for the BUL vs LIO match in Pondicherry T20 2022 and will be a great fantasy pick for this upcoming fixture.

Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

As far as all-rounders are concerned, Bulls XI’s V Marimuthu A will be the overwhelming choice. The 29-year-old has already scored 77 runs and scalped a wicket in the two games this season. Marimuthu already has 113 fantasy points to his name and will be looking to rake in more. The all-rounder could prove to be a match-winner against Lions XI and is available for 9.5 credits.

For the wicket-keeper spot, Bulls XI’s Siddharth Naidu will be the preferred choice over Lions XI glovesman Naveen Kaarthikeyan. Naidu scored 69 runs in two games and will look to prove his mettle behind the stumps against Lions XI. At 8.0 credits, 22-year-old Siddharth Naidu is a valuable addition to any fantasy team.

BUL: Jay Pandey, V Marimuthu (captain), Gautham Srinivas, Surendiran P, Siddarth Naidu (wicket-keeper), Bhupendra Chauhan, Abhilash Kulkarni, Ashwath Sridhar, Pooviasaran Manogaran, Vengadeshwaran N, Sathya Kumar
