Top Picks for Bangalore vs Hyderabad MyTeam11 Match:
Virat Kohli is a right-handed batter from Bangalore. The former captain of Bangalore is the all-time highest run-scorer of Indian T20 League. Recently, his performance with the bat has been mediocre. However, one cannot count Kohli out of a match and that is why he should be your top pick for the next match.
Dinesh Karthik is a right-hand batter and wicket keeper for Bangalore. The former Kolkata captain has been a valuable addition for the Bangalore franchise this year. In the last few years, Karthik delivered back-to-back jaw-dropping performances. Surely, his ability to hit the white bowl out of the park will come in handy for Bangalore’s next match.
Faf du Plessis is a right-handed batsman playing for Bangalore. Plessis is in tremendous form this season. So far, he has hit 250 runs with the highest score of 96 runs. His presence in the field has been crucial for the team as he elevates the standard of fielding on the ground.
T Natarajan is a Hyderabad-based left-handed batsman and left-arm medium-fast bowler. He has 12 wickets in this competition so far, and he has the potential to be much more productive here.
Kane Williamson is from Hyderabad and bats right-handed. So far, he’s scored over 120 runs in this tournament. He’ll also be a safe bet for this match.
