CSK vs MI: Here's your guide to pick Fantasy XI
Table toppers Chennai Super Kings face bottom-placed Mumbai Indians in match number 27 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. The battle in Pune will be a crunch tie despite the gap between both sides. With these franchises having genuine match-winners, one would be pondering on picking the best Fantasy XI. Nothing to worry. We guide you with the best combination.
Rohit Sharma skipper in this 5-man batting line-up
Ambati Rayudu has been in blistering form and his aggression makes him a genuine contender. Along side him is Suresh Raina. The southpaw is one of the most consistent performers. In-form MS Dhoni is our pick as the wicket-keeper. We go with MI skipper Rohit as the leader of the Fantasy XI, this could be his day. Suryakumar Yadav is the final straw.
Watson and Bravo are our star all-rounders
Shane Watson has been of massive help for CSK given his all-round abilities. The veteran is dangerous atop and has 191 runs already. He is our choice as vice-captain. Along with Watson, West Indian Dwayne Bravo comes in next. There is no better finisher at the moment than Bravo. Mumbai Indians' Krunal Pandya fills up the slot as the third all-rounder.
Markande, Bhajji give variety in bowling
Mayank Markande could once again steal the Orange Cap and overtake Trent Boult. His application against the heavy CSK artillery will be crucial. We have also gone with the veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh. The off-spinner's experience would prove crucial and he will be raring to go against his former team. CSK rising pacer Deepak Chahar is our final pick.
