PUN vs UP dream11 team prediction tips

In PUN vs UP dream11 prediction, lets take a look at some important players from both the sides who can fetch good points in fantasy leagues.

Suresh Raina: A strong performance is certainly expected from this veteran southpaw. This is his chance to get some match practice before the all important Indian Premier League. He will lead the UP side and this will be his first competitive game in more than 2 years now. He is surely a vital cog in that UP batting line up at the top of the order.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: The seasoned campaigner will be hoping to finish this season injury free. He looked in good rhythm in what little IPL games he played but unfortunately, he withdrew from the season due to an injury. He walks directly into any fantasy team.

Sandeep Sharma: He was the star for SRH in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He was brilliant with the new ball and even bowled some crucial overs at death. He can be a valuable pick as the domestic batters will find difficult to hit him.

Abhishek Sharma: He opened for Punjab in few games in the previous season and turned out to be a hit at the top of the order. He can also bowl some quality SLA in middle overs. He is a solid captaincy option in grand leagues

Other picks: Priyam Garg, Rinku Singh, Gurkeerat Singh and Shivam Mavi can all be massive picks for this round.
