MAD vs VKV Dream11 Prediction


Two of the leading batsmen are available to pick as wicket-keepers, with Arun Karthik in top form for the Madurai Panthers and Suresh Lokeshwar – a half-centurion when these teams last met – back up the order for the Kanchi Veerans now. Irrespective of cost, both are in good form and should be picked.


Baba Aparajith’s unbeaten half-century last time out led the Kanchi Veerans to victory and into this tie. He is their top run scorer so far. Sanjay Yadav has batted well so far too, while Sarath Raj is up the order with Karthik for the Madurai Panthers. Captain Shijit Chandran is another option for the Panthers.


Rajagopal Sathish has scored runs at an excellent strike rate and taken wickets with a good economy rate. His all-round form has been central to VB Kanchi Veerans’ success. Jagatheesan Kousik is the Madurai Panthers top-performing all-rounder, meanwhile. In order to save credits, the fact P Sugendhran came into the team last time out and batted right up the order for the Kanchi Veerans, could make him worth picking up at 7.5 credits – that frees just enough credits for the rest of the team.


That still does not leave many credits for the bowlers, particularly with Kiran Akash and Rahil Shah both priced at nine credits apiece. There is some better value to be found, however – NS Harish is just eight credits and worth picking up for that reason.


Rajagopal Sathish is worth picking up for his runs and wickets, but he is lower down the batting order than the likes of Aparajith and Lokeshwar. Arun Karthik has been in good, consistent batting form for the Madurai Panthers, meanwhile. If Sathish gets the chance to bat and bowl, he will score big points and is worth picking as captain. A vice-captain pick of any of those three batsmen should be worthwhile too.
