CSK vs BLR Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 10 October

CSK vs BLR Dream11 Prediction: One of the traditional rivalries in IPL is set to make your Saturday evening even more action-packed as southern derby will take center-stage in Dubai. Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns in the second game of the day. There would be many sub-plots in a rivalry like this but none bigger than Virat Kohli Vs MS Dhoni. We will preview CSK vs BLR Dream11 contest.

Chennai Super Kings are not in a happy place at the moment and if they are to continue their play-offs records this year as well, a tough few weeks ahead for the whole group. In the last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, bowlers did well to restrict KKR to a total of 167 runs. Dwayne Bravo picked up 3 scalps while Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur and Karn Sharma contributed with a couple each. In the chase, CSK looked in complete control when Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu were betting together at the score of 99 for 1. But a couple of wickets in quick time and mounting required rate conceptualized a panic in CSK camp from which they never recovered. In the end, CSK fell short by 10 runs to hand KKR an easy game.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are also coming into this match after a poor performance against Delhi Capitals. Bowling first, RCB bowlers failed to execute their plans right from the beginning. Powerful Delhi batting piled on runs against a helpless bowling attack at times. Mohammed Siraj picked up two wickets but DC registered a total of 196 runs on the board. Chasing a mountain, RCB suffered a top order collapse and lost 3 wickets on the score of 43 runs. Only captain Virat Kohli resisted for a while with his 43 to delay the inevitable. Delhi Capitals won the match by 59 runs.

In head-to-head comparisons, Chennai Super Kings have been dominant against Royal Challengers Bangalore with 16 wins. On the other end, RCB managed to prevail on only 8 occasions in total 25 matches played between them. CSK have been equally impressive in recent history as well with 4 wins out of last 5 matches against RCB. They will be meeting for the first time in UAE.

Pitch and Conditions

Pitches at Dubai have been batting-friendly so far and same conditions are expected today as well. Teams batting first have been more successful as surface is getting slower in the second half of the match. But dew has also helped the conditions to tilt towards the batting side as we saw during CSK’s chase against KXIP here last weekend.

CSK vs BLR Dream11 Team Prediction

Let’s take a look at the squad news and CSK Vs BLR Dream11 predictions for today’s encounter.

Chennai Super Kings Team News

  • Some changes are expected today in CSK playing XI as they are yet to find their best combination.
  • Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis have found their grooves as a pair in last couple of outings and they will be looking to continue the same today.
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad is expected to replace struggling Kedar Jadhav in the middle order. Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni will have to take responsibility if anything goes wrong at the top.
  • Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja are their all-rounders but both are not getting enough time in the middle with bat to make a significant impact. The bowling department has done well and there are no changes expected today.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News

  • If Chris Morris is fit, he will come in the place of Isuru Udana today. Otherwise no major changes are expected as RCB have done well so far.
  • Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal have provided decent starts and both are well backed up in the middle order by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
  • Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar will keep their places and if Chris Morris comes, RCB lower middle order will become even stronger.
  • Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj will be their Indian fast-bowlers while Yuzvendra Chahal will be the lead spinner in our CSK vs BLR Dream11 prediction.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Virat Kohli has come good after a lean start to the season in first couple of matches. After playing an innings of 72* in the chase against RR, he followed it up with another good knock of 43 runs in the last match. He is the most reliable option for the captaincy in today’s match.
  • AB de Villiers has timed everything so far from the meat of the willow. He already has a couple of good scores under his belt this year and both came at this very ground. If he is there at the 16th over mark, he can wreak some real havoc on this CSK bowling lineup.
  • Faf du Plessis has carried CSK batting lineup on his shoulders this year. He is at the second position in the race for orange cap this year just after KL Rahul. He has scored 299 runs at an average of 74.75 and promises a consistent points scoring pattern.

For Grand Leagues

  • Chris Morris will be an excellent pick if he plays today. As per reports, he is likely to feature in today’s playing XI for RCB. Although he is coming back after a long break but he offers an immense value in both the departments. A perfect differential for the grand leagues.
  • Shane Watson has found his mojo finally this year. He is coming on the back of a couple scores in this week. After slamming 83* against KXIP, he again hit a fifty in the last match against KKR. Given that he is an opener, he can maximize your total if he comes good.
  • Sam Curran is a perfect two-dimensional cricketer for any of your fantasy leagues. He bowls in powerplay and at the death for CSK, that gives him plenty of opportunities to pick up wickets. Also he has played cameos with the bat whenever he got opportunities. He is a perfect material for your grand leagues teams.

Who will hit most sixes today?
