Kane Williamson’s side are on an even bigger five-match winning streak after they had lost their first couple of matches. Their wins have been emphatic: two eight-wicket wins, two seven-wicket wins and a nine-wicket win.

Here, we bring you the best fantasy cricket tips for this exciting contest:

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

After some early low-scoring matches, the Wankhede has produced four high-scoring thrillers. And now with teams winning batting first, the effect of dew seems to have decreased. Two top bowling sides in GT and SRH, though, may give a tight low-scoring contest.

Gujarat Titans

Skipper Hardik Pandya spoke of giving a long rope to the likes of Saha while also having some words of motivation for Gill whose form has dipped after a rocking start to the season. GT are expected to field the same eleven as in their last match.

GT predicted XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya (c), Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Shami

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The lower middle-order – Shashank Singh and Jagadeesha Suchith – haven’t been tested yet with the bat with the top five winning them the games. Since Washington Sundar is unlikely to be fit for this game, SRH are expected to stick to their winning combination.

SRH predicted XI: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan

Fantasy cricket tips: GT fast bowlers are going to use the short ball ploy, so the likes of Abhishek and Williamson will be susceptible while the Wankhede will offer assistance to Bhuvneshwar and Jansen so the GT openers will be vulnerable.

With two top bowling teams, making a batsman as your fantasy captain is risky, while Hardik Pandya sustained a groin injury in the last game and is unlikely to bowl overs. You can pick Umran Malik if SRH bowls first and can make Natarajan your captain.

Based on the above fantasy cricket tips, here is the best XI for the GT-SRH match on Dream XI:

Wicket-keeper: Nicholas Pooran

Batsman: Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi

All-rounder: Hardik Pandya

Bowler: Rashid Khan(VC), Umran Malik, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, T Natarajan (C)
