Sandeep Sharma has struggled to pick up wickets this season.
Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals will face each other in the 52nd match of IPL 2022 on Saturday. Punjab have blown hot and cold but the win against table-toppers Gujarat in their previous match would have given them a huge boost and they will need a win here to get into a comfortable position in the table. On the other hand, Rajasthan lost their previous match against Kolkata and have stumbled in the last few games. They will be looking to make a turnaround quickly.
Here are 3 players you can avoid in your fantasy teams for the PBKS vs RR game:
1. Karun Nair
Karun Nair has scored 16 runs in the 3 matches he has played so far and has been in and out of the side throughout the season. He is also not getting many balls to face and might be demoted in case the top order provides a good start. His position and form is very vulnerable and reduces his fantasy potential. So it is better to look at other alternatives and ignore him.
2. Sandeep Sharma
He has not had much success this season and has struggled to pick wickets up front. In the 4 matches he has played so far he has picked 2 wickets at an average of 56. With much better alternatives available in the bowlers section, it is better to avoid him for this match.
3. Rishi Dhawan
Rishi Dhawan has picked up 3 wickets in 3 matches at an average of 26. He will be up against a strong batting line-up of Rajasthan and it is unlikely that he might have much of a role to play. He is also the fifth bowling option and there are chances of him not completing his quota of overs, hence ignore him for this match.
