REN vs THU dream11 team prediction tips

In REN vs THU dream11 prediction, lets take a look at the important players from both the sides for fantasy leagues.

Kane Richardson: It is a thumb rule to pick the player who picks cheap wickets in the game. Kane Richardson is one bowler who does that regularly. He picked 2 wickets in the previous game against Sydney Sixers as well. REN will need him to do the job to get their second victory in the season.

Alex Hales: He came on his own in the game against Melbourne Stars and smacked a 29 ball 71 runs including 8 maximums. He is in very good form to leave out of the fantasy teams.

Callum Ferguson: He is the leading run scorer in this season thus far. He has scored 197 runs and has been accumulating runs in a consistent manner. He can easily fetch valuable points and is a must in small leagues.

Daniel Sams: He walks straight into the fantasy teams and the points mentioned for Kane Richardson applies to him as well. In addition to his bowling, he makes some really quick runs.

Other picks: Sam Harper, Peter Hatzoglou, Tanveer Sangha, and Usman Khawaja can all be valuable picks.
