Fantasy Picks for the CSK vs SRH Match
Captain: A Rahane
A Rahane looks solid with his technical sound. His ability to middle the ball has got even more grace with the divine touch he has at present.
Vice Captain : A Markram
Markram is yet another batter who is making wonders with the bat. Whenever he walks in to bat he is able to make healthy contributions for his team off late.
Batsmen : Ruturaj, Brooks, Tripathi, Rahane
Ruturaj has not done well in the last two games but his potential is too high. With the home ground advantage he can be back to his way.
Tripathi plays spin really well. And this could be a very important aspect to play against CSK in Chennai.
Brooks, the first century maker of this edition of IPL can make use of the batting aspects of the Chepauk stadium.
Wicketkeepers: D Conway
One can’t deny that Conway is the man with the golden bat at present in this tournament. The way he was able to put up the runs on board speaks a lot about his ability.
All rounders : Jadeja, Markram, Jansen, Moeen Ali
Two gems of CSk are Jadeja and Moeen. Both take the responsibility with both the bat and the ball.
Jansen’s pace and pinch hitting with the bat makes him an effective contestant for our side.
Bowlers : Markande, M Theekshana
By knowing the nature of this pitch, it is unfair to leave the top two spinners from both the teams. They make a huge difference with their ability on this wicket.
Winning Dream11 Team
Ruturaj Gaikwad, despite the two failures in the last two games, will be the key factor for CSK at the home venue. Everybody is aware of what difference he can make if he gets going.
The spinners will play a big role in the Chepauk, making Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja serious threats to the opposition.
