SHA vs TIG Dream11 prediction

The upcoming clash between these teams certainly comes across as a battle of equals since there is very little from a team combination point of view to separate the two sides. However, TIG are likely to have an edge over SHA on account of a better position in the standings as well as the memories of their win over Sharks during the last encounter between the teams.

SHA vs TIG Dream11 team tips for Pondicherry T20

Top tip: Best batsman

TIG opener Arjun Shetty is the batsman to watch out for in this contest. He scored a fantastic 58-ball 64 while opening the innings and set up a five-wicket win for his team when these two sides last met. Fantasy owners will definitely want to have him in their ranks. 

Top tip: Best bowler

Siva Kumar S was the trump card with the ball for TIG in their previous match against SHA. He finished with figures of 4/17 to break the back of the opposition and will be the bowler to watch out for in the return encounter.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicketkeeper

Andrew Subikshan can prove to be a game-changer with his all-round abilities for TIG. He has consistently notched scores in excess of 25 and has also been picking up crucial wickets.

SHA wicket-keeper Anand Subramaniam is a fine pick in the gloveman category. He is an attacking batsman capable of batting at high strike rates and is pretty effective behind the stumps as well.
