Sujit Nayak has been brilliant in all departments so far. He began with a 21-ball 50 and followed it with 27-ball 29 in the next game. In both the matches, Sujit claimed two wickets apiece. He could be crucial for the Bandra Blasters to succeed in this tournament.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Sujit Nayak has been the top performer for the Bandra franchise in this tournament. Shivam Dube had a very ordinary game but ended up fetching 33 points. Shreyas Iyer turned out to be decent with the ball taking two wickets.
Other captain/vice-captain options – Raunaq Sharma, Siddharth Chitnis, Aditya Dhumal, Nikhil Patil, Eknath Kerkar.
Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:
Keeper – Hardik Tamore
Batsmen – Shreyas Iyer, Prasad Pawar, Raunaq Sharma, Siddharth Chitnis
All-Rounders – Aditya Dhumal, Shivam Dube (VC), Sujit Nayak (C)
Bowlers – Nikhil Date, Siddharth Raut, Vijay Gohil
Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – Eknath Kerkar
Batsmen – Shreyas Iyer (VC), Siddhesh Lad, Raunaq Sharma, Siddharth Chitnis
All-Rounders – Aditya Dhumal, Shivam Dube (C)
Bowlers – Nikhil Date, Siddharth Raut, Saksham Jha, Shivam Malhotra
This match includes Shreyas Iyer and Shivam Dube who come at 11 credits and the likes of Sujit Nayak and Siddhesh Lad at 10 credits. Iyer’s batting form is a concern but he might be bowling a few overs like in the last match. Lad can be excluded given his batting position. Both Sujit and Shivam are crucial as the duo make an impact with both bat and ball.
NaMo Bandra Blasters are expected to bring an end to their losing spree and open their points tally.
