CV vs RNR Grand League Team

Team 01

Pick more top-order batters

Both sides have a plethora of power-hitters in Shahzad, Gayle, Rahim, Hales, and Ronchi. With the Dhaka pitch expected to be a belter, picking more top-order batsmen will be prudent for your Dream11 team.

Team 02

Punt on the all-rounders

All-rounders are a vital part of any T20 side, purely because of their ability to change the match with both bat and ball.

Hence, making the likes of Sikander Raza, Ashraful, Ravi Bopara as captain/vice-captain could be a masterstroke, as far as your Dream11 Grand League team is concerned.

Team 03 & 04

Both sides boast of a formidable line-up that can beat any team on a given day. Hence, pick the maximum number of players from the team that you think will win tomorrow.
