Playing Fantasy 11? A guide for MI vs CSK encounter
Many fans across the world are glued to the Indian Premier League Fantasy XI platforms. While some enter Fantasy XI websites for fun, others play it to win season long exciting prizes. So who should be in your team for the April 7 encounter between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings? Here is our combined playing XI to help you pick the best combination.
Rohit is the best choice for the captaincy role
To pick maximum points, one should select a skipper who can score runs and play atop and that's why we would pick Rohit Sharma as the skipper. Murali Vijay and Evin Lewis could go ahead as the likely opening pair. The duo would be interesting to watch alongside Duminy in the middle-order. Suresh Raina is a solid option who would bat at number 3.
Dhoni as the keeper, Pollard & Pandya as all-rounders
Dhoni is our go-to keeper, given his skills behind the stumps. He could come and score handy runs too in the lower middle-order. When it comes to picking the all-rounders, we would go with Pollard and Pandya. Pollard's big hitting exploits and decent bowling skills could fetch you points. Pandya's hard-hitting skills and bowling prompted us to select him as the vice-captain.
Bhajji, Bumrah and Cummins ideal bowlers
Now as the rule states one should have at least three bowlers and here they are. Harbhajan Singh picks wickets and can be economical. Jasprit Bumrah is a must with his excellence especially at the death. From the rest of the pool, we have selected pacer Pat Cummins. The reason being that Cummins bowls fast and he has been in top form this year.
