Prashant Chopra, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Ankit Bawne, Ravi Thakur, Rishi Dhawan, Azim Kazi, Naushad Shaikh, Mayank Dagar, Vaibhav Arora, Pradeep Dadhe.
Captain: Ruturaj Gaikwad
Ruturaj Gaikwad had a sensational end to the IPL 2020 season where he showed his temperament by scoring three consecutive half-centuries. He is in red-hot form and a prime candidate for the captain of the Dream11 team.
Vice-captain: Rishi Dhawan
HIM skipper scored 128 runs and picked up 7 wickets last season from 7 games. He will be looking to lead from the front this time around too and is a great choice for vice-captain of the Dream11 team.
MAH vs HIM Dream11 Team for Small League:
Prashant Chopra, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Ankit Bawne, Abhimanyu Rana, Rishi Dhawan, Azim Kazi, Naushad Shaikh, Mayank Dagar, Vaibhav Arora, Pradeep Dadhe.
Captain: Rahul Tripathi
Tripathi didn’t have the greatest of seasons last time around, but with IPL experience under his belt, he will certainly be more confident and itching to make an impact with the bat. Thus, he is a good choice to be the captain of the Dream11 team.
Vice-captain: Prashant Chopra
With 234 runs from 7 games, Prashant Chopra was the highest run-scorer for Maharashtra last season. He will be keen to continue from where he had left off.
MAH vs HIM Dream11 Team for Mega League:
Prashant Chopra, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Kedar Jadhav, Abhimanyu Rana, Rishi Dhawan, Azim Kazi, Naushad Shaikh, Mayank Dagar, Vaibhav Arora, Pradeep Dadhe.
Captain: Kedar Jadhav
Kedar Jadhav had an appalling IPL 2020 season, but he managed to turn it around by being the highest run-scorer for Maharastra in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this year, with 193 runs from five matches. Thus he is a good gamble to take as the captain of the Dream11 Team.
Vice-captain: Azim Kazi
Kazi is quite an underrated all-rounder, who had performed extremely well last season, scoring 127 runs and picking up 13 wickets from just 6 games. Thus, he is a good bet for the vice-captain of the Dream11 team.
