GMY vs SS Dream11 prediction
Both Gulbarga Mystics and Shivamogga Strikers will look to bounce back after losing their respective opening fixtures in Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20.
However, going by overall team combination, Gulbarga Mystics will have an edge over Shivamogga Strikers heading into Tuesday’s fixture.
GMY vs SS Dream11 team tips for Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20
Top Tip: Best batter
Shivamogga Strikers’ Krishnamurthy Siddharth will be the batter to watch out for. The 29-year-old scored 21 runs off 15 balls against Mysore Warriors in their opening match on Sunday. Siddharth has accrued 46 fantasy points and will be a smart pick at 8.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, Gulbarga Mystics’ Vidhwath Kaverappa will be a great fantasy pick at 8.5 credits. The right-arm fast bowler picked two wickets in his four overs against Bengaluru Blasters in their previous match. Kaverappa will look to add to his fantasy tally of 54 points against Shivamogga Strikers.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Shivamogga Strikers captain Krishnappa Gowtham is a must-have fantasy pick for this upcoming fixture. The 33-year-old scored 23 runs and picked two wickets in their opening fixture on Sunday. Having already amassed 95 fantasy points, picking Gowtham in any fantasy team is a no-brainer.
Shivamogga Strikers’ Vinay Sagar pips Krishnan Shrijith of Gulbarga Mystics for the wicket-keeper spot. Besides fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Sagar scored 18 runs in their loss against Mysore Warriors. At just 8.5 credits, the Shivamogga Strikers gloveman will be a valuable addition to any fantasy team.
GMY vs SS playing XI (probable)
Gulbarga Mystics playing XI (probable): Codanda Ajit Karthik, Devdutt Padikkal, Manish Pandey (captain), Krishnan Shrijith (wicket-keeper), Bangalore Mohith, Kruthik Krishna, Manoj Bhandage, Ritesh Bhatkal, Pranav Bhatia, Abhilash Shetty, Vidhwath Kaverappa
