Fantasy Board – Wicketkeepers:

Snell Patel:

Part of Saurashtra’s First Class and List A teams, Snell Patel started the tournament with a match-winning 81-run knock. Considering the 28-year-old bats in the top order and keeps wickets, you have no reason not to have him in your XI. 

Performances in this tournament: 81(50), 1(3)

Tarang Gohel:

Like Patel, Tarang Gohel also bats in the top order, keeps wickets, and already has an 80+ score to his name in the tournament. So it wouldn’t be wise to leave him out of your XI. 

Performances in this tournament: 28(26), 84(60), 14(15)

Chirag Sisodiya:

Chirag Sisodiya, Snell Patel’s opening partner at Halar Heroes, performed in the first game and was dismissed for a single-digit score in the second game. The 28-year-old managed only 56 runs at an average of 14 runs per wicket in the previous edition of SPL.

Performances in this tournament: 71(49), 3(7)


Fantasy Board – Batters:

Bhagyaraj Chudasama:

Bhagyaraj Chudasama is a middle-order batter. The right-hander was promoted to bat at No.3 in one of the games, but the move didn’t work. Chudasama has a 30+ score to his name and looks a safe pick here.

Performances in this tournament: 7(15), 30(23), 2(2)

Siddhant Rana:

Lower middle-order batter Siddhant Rana has only 6 runs in 3 games. Despite that, his selection % is very high. There’s no previous record available for him, and with no real performances of note, we don’t see why he should warrant a place in your XI. 

Performances in this tournament: 2(4), 1(2), 3(5)

Navneet Vora:

Navneet Vora is a bowler who is miscategorised in the batting section. The off-spinner has picked up a wicket in both games so far. There aren’t many good batting picks in this game, so having an extra bowler won’t be a bad choice.

Performances in this tournament: 1/31 (4), 1/22 (3)


Fantasy Board – Allrounders:

Chirag Jani:

Jani is Saurashtra’s best all-rounder in all 3 formats of the game, and he bowls at the death, making him an easy 2X option in this fixture. 

Performances in this tournament: 37(22) & 1/18 (4), 21(20) & 1/27 (4), 20(23) & 1/21 (4)

Parth Chauhan:

Parth Chauhan is an emerging pace-bowling all-rounder who bats in the lower middle order. It is important to note that the 26-year-old bowled only one over in his first game and didn’t bowl at all in the second. However, his selection % is very high and leaving him out is not worth entertaining. 

Performances in this tournament: 9(7) & 1/10 (1), 11(15) & 1/21 (4)

Rishi Patel:

Rishi Patel is also a middle-order batter who bowls right-arm medium pace. Patel has scored 46 runs at run a ball and picked up 1 wicket in 8 overs across 3 games. No previous performance record is available for the 20-year-old, and leaving him out can work wonders as the high selection % is primarily due to recency bias.

Performances in this tournament: 22(22) & 0/37 (3), 1(3) & 0/6 (1), 23(20) & 1/21 (4)


Fantasy Board – Bowlers:

Dharmendrasinh Jadeja:

Saurashtra’s spin bowling star in all three formats of the game, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, has an economy rate of just 4 in 2 games and already has a 3-wicket haul to his name. Jadeja is also handy with the bat, as indicated by his 16-ball 21 in the first game. C/VC Alert! 

Performances in this tournament: DNB & 3/18 (4), 21(16) & 0/14 (4)

Sunil Yadav:

The leg spinner has three wickets in two games. Yadav also managed a 30+ score in the last match, showing his ability with the bat. If he’s defending a target, the 30-year-old becomes an excellent C/VC option in mega leagues.

Performances in this tournament: DNB & 2/35 (4), 31(27) & 1/27 (4)

Devang Karamta and Sonu Batham are other options in play today. Sonu Batham is a right-arm medium pacer who operates mainly in the middle overs, while Devang Karamta is a left-arm pacer who bowls at the death. The left-arm angle and death bowling make Karamta a better option between the two.


Predicted Playing XI:

Sorath Lions: Tarang Gohel(wk), Chirag Pathak, Siddhant Rana, Chirag Jani(c), Rishi Patel, Bhagyaraj Chudasama, Jay Chauhan, Divyaraj Chauhan, Sattyajeetsinh Gohil, Devang Karamta, Sonu Batham

Halar Heroes: Chirag Sisodiya, Snell Patel(wk), Kishan Parmar, Arpit Vasavada(c), Kunal Karamchandani, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja, Sunil Yadav, Parth Chauhan, Hitendra Jadeja, Pranav Nandha, Navneet Vora
