Sanju Samson – Rajasthan Royals skipper has so far scored 229 runs in 6 innings and is in brilliant form till now with the bat. He is a safe pick for multiplier choice as well.
Chris Morris – The highest-paid player ever in the IPL auction – Morris is certainly living up to the expectations. He had a slow start but is picking up and has scalped 11 wickets so far in IPL 2021 – highest by a Rajasthan Royals bowler. He has also impressed with the bat and Morris will certainly be a top pick for the fantasy lovers.
Kane Williamson – The newly-appointed SRH skipper has scored 108 runs in 3 innings and remained not-out in all three innings thus far and is in excellent form with the bat. Williamson is a safe customer and can be a good option for fantasy lovers.
Rashid Khan – The leg-spinner from Afghanistan is arguably the best T20 bowler across the globe at present. Although he is not in the best of rhythm but Rashid is a deadly customer at any point of the game.
Jonny Bairstow – The English opener is in gorgeous form with the bat and has been explosive as an opener. He has scored 216 runs in 6 games till now. He is one of the top picks for captaincy choice.
