1. Yashasvi Jaiswal
The youngster was seen slamming Hazlewood huge sixes in the last match, and can be one of the best picks, due to the momentum he has gathered with his ball striking capabilities. In the last match, Jaiswal hit 50 off 21 balls to give the team a terrific start to the team, which helped them to win the match.
2. Chetan Sakariya
Chetan has been mindful of his lengths in the power play as well as death overs. His variations are expected to be finer in this fixture and would look to bag crucial wickets of the top order batsman of the Mumbai Indians team. In 12 matches, Chetan has scalped 12 wickets.
3. Glenn Phillips
Phillips made his debut in the IPL in the last league fixture and looked quite impressive. Phillips has been a consistent run scorer in the T20 format for the past 1 year, and would look to continue the good form. In 125 T20 matches, Glenn has amassed 4012 runs at an average of 33.15.
4. Sanju Samson
The prolific run scorer will look to keep his performances same in this fixture. Sanju has played sensibly, keeping in mind, a relatively inexperienced middle order of the team and has succeeded in his attempts to be the highest run scorer for RR with 480 runs in 12 matches.
