NRK vs CSG Dream11 team tips for TNPL 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
Chepauk Super Gillies captain Kaushik Gandhi will be the batter to watch out for in the first qualifier of TNPL 2022. The 32-year-old has been a consistent performer for CSG with the bat at the top of the order, scoring 185 runs in seven matches at an average of 26.42. Gandhi has accumulated 324 fantasy points and will be a worthy fantasy pick at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, one must pick in-form CSG bowler R Sai Kishore in their fantasy cricket team. The left-arm spinner has claimed seven wickets in just four matches at an impressive economy of 5.66. At just 8.5 credits, Kishore is a smart pick as he will look to add more points to his fantasy tally of 374 points.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among the all-rounders, Nellai Royal Kings’ Sanjay Yadav is a must-have fantasy pick for TNPL 2022 Qualifier 1. The 27-year-old is currently the leading run-scorer in TNPL 2022, amassing 376 runs in seven matches at a staggering average of 125.33 and at a strike rate of 188. Having already accrued 772 fantasy points, Sanjay Yadav can be a worthwhile investment at a steep price of 10.5 credits.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Chepauk Super Gillies’ Narayan Jagadeesan should be the preferred choice over Ajitesh G of Nellai Royal Kings. Jagadeesan, who has already amassed 299 fantasy points, has been selected by over 90 per cent fantasy players. Jagadeesan can be a valuable addition to any fantasy team at 9.5 credits.
