The IPL 2019 has reached its halfway stage.
This is one of the biggest clashes of this season as both the teams would look to snatch a win to consolidate their lead.
Here we decode the ideal Fantasy XI.
Starting with the wicket-keeping department, it is a no brainer as to who would don the big gloves.
It would be none other than the big man, MS Dhoni himself.
Known for his profound work behind the stumps, Dhoni has been in sensational form with the bat, scoring runs at an unbelievable average of 107.00.
There is no way Dinesh Karthik could match him.
The batting line-up starts with young opener Shubman Gill, who scored a fine 39-ball 65 in the last game. He has wealth of talent.
He would be supported by his team-mate Nitish, who has been playing exceptionally well this season.
The line-up continues with CSK's Ambati Rayudu, who shined in the last game, scoring a 47-ball 57, while Faf du Plessis would support him.
The all-round attack starts with the big Jamaican Andre Russell.
He needs no introduction and is certainly the first name in this XI. However, his troubled wrist is something to watch out for.
On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja is CSK's trump card. Having claimed 2/20 in the previous game, he can also come in handy with the bat when needed the most.
As for the bowlers, the attack would start with KKR pacer Prasidh Krishna, who seems to be improving with each passing game.
He would be supported by CSK's Deepak Chahar, who too has been in similar form.
For spin attack, it should consist of CSK's Imran Tahir, who has been lethal.
Finally, KKR's Kuldeep Yadav makes the list, owing to his unpredictability.
We have gone ahead with different names this time around.
We believe owing to his consistency, Gill has the best chance of making an impact as a batsman tomorrow, therefore taking up the role of the captain of this XI.
As for his deputy, Imran Tahir's talent of churning out wickets on any track makes him the hot favorite for the role.
