    CHE vs MUM MPL Fantasy Cricket Tips

    Captain Choices

    Faf du Plessis: One of the few positives for Chennai this season has been Faf du Plessis’ batting as the South African is a scoring at an average of 46 and a strike-rate of 141. With 375 runs he is the leading run-scorer for them and has enough experience to score against the world-class Mumbai bowling attack. He made an unbeaten 58 in the opener against MI. The team batting first should look for a score of 170+ in CSK vs MI Today Match Prediction. So players like Plessis could come in handy in Dream11 teams.

    Kieron Pollard: Mumbai Indians need to find a way to give more batting time to Pollard as he deserves that more than anyone. Just have a look at what he has done so far, 208 runs in 104 balls he has faced so far with a strike-rate of over 200. He has already been a gamechanger for them on a couple of occasions and can do it more often if he gets the time.

    Vice-Captain Choices

    Sam Curran: The English all-rounder is the joint leader along with Deepak Chahar with 10 wickets for CSK. Apart from that, his strike-rate of 151 is the second-best for them after Ravindra Jadeja. That shows that Curran has done well as an all-rounder and that’s why CSK promoted him to open, a move that hasn’t worked so far, but has all the potential to work.

    Quinton de Kock: It takes a lot to be the highest run-scorer for a team like Mumbai that is packed with hard-hitting batsmen and de Kock has done it in style with 322 runs at a brilliant strike-rate of 146. He also has 4 fifties to his name which is twice as much as anyone else in the team.

    X-Factors – Differential Picks

    Ravindra Jadeja: It has been a complete role reversal for Ravindra Jadeja this season as with the ball he has been mediocre with only 4 wickets in this season so far and leaking runs at over 9 but he has made up for that with his blitzkrieg with the bat. Jadeja has score 194 runs at a strike-rate of 164. He has been providing the quick finishes his captain was expected to provide.

    Jasprit Bumrah: Bumrah is hot in pursuit of the current Purple Cap holder, Kagiso Rabada – 21 wickets, with 15 wickets of his own in one less game. Bumrah was a bit stiff when the tournament started but has picked up his game as the tournament has progressed. He is one of the best bowlers across all formats in the world and we need you to trust him.
