CSK vs DC Dream11 Key Players best picks: No-nonsense Rabada a safe-bet, Stoinis and Curran could be real value

CSK vs DC Dream11 Key Players: It doesn't matter which teams bat first, for both teams have real batting firepower to make the life a hell for the bowlers. Despite the top three batsmen combining for only 12 runs, Delhi still managed to put a decent total in their opening game against KingsXI Punjab. Delhi's powers have significantly improved this season, or it seems from the first game, as they look more balanced, and a well-oiled team in the bowling department as well.
Chennai dropped the last game by 16 runs against the Rajasthan Royals, but that margin is not the real reflection of how the game panned out. The three-time IPL champions were always playing the catch-up game while chasing Royals' mammoth 216 total.


Big Picks:

Faf du Plessis: Showed his elite class. A player like him is a rare breed, who knows all about shifting gears at the right time. He kept Chennai in hunt, to some extent. The South African scored 72 runs off just 37 balls, which had 7 massive sixes.
IPL Record:
Matches: 73
Batting: 1983 Runs
High-Score: 96
Strike Rate: 128.51


Marcus Stoinis: Erupted for 53 runs in just 21 balls in the opening game and bowled a clutch last over of the 2nd innings, clinching two wickets, and forced the super over. Stoinis offers real value due to his two-way skills.
IPL Record:
Matches: 30
Batting: 526 Runs
High-Score: 53
Strike Rate: 136.82
Bowling: 17


Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Although he should have gone for the kill quite early in his innings in the last match, his three massive sixes in the last over showed that Dhoni can send the ball out of the park still. The former Indian captain can erupt with something special and can't be overlooked in CSK vs DC Today Match Prediction match.
IPL Record:
Matches: 192
Batting: 4451 Runs
High-Score: 84*
Bowling: NA


Rishabh Pant: Although Dhoni's qualities can't be questioned, Pant offers perhaps a better value as a wicket-keeper due to the simple fact that he bats up the order, and Dhoni holds himself back for the death overs. Pant scored 31 runs in the opening game.
IPL Record:
Matches: 55
Batting: 1098Runs
High-Score: 128*
Bowling: NA


Shane Watson: Gave Chennai fast start and the team could have been in a better position had Murali Vijay scored at a better strike rate. Watson hit four sixes en route to his 33 runs winnings.
IPL Record:
Matches: 136
Batting: 3602 Runs
High-Score: 117*
Bowling: 92 Wickets


Kagiso Rabada: Arguably one of the best bowlers in the world across three formats. He laid the marker down with a superb performance in the last match. He was super clutch in the super over, picking up two wickets.
IPL Record:
Matches: 19
Wickets: 33
Best: 4/21


Smart Picks:

  • Sam Curran: He was the best bowler in game-2 for Chennai. His figures of 3-33 look even better, considering Royals piled up 216 runs. Curran is also very handy with the bat. His promotion in the last match shows that the management also trusts him with the bat.
  • Ravindra Jadeja: Didn't have the best of the game with the bowl, and couldn't affect the game with the bat as well, but we all know he is one of the best players in the shortest format of the game.
  • Shikhar Dhawan: The left-handed southpaw needs no introduction at all. He has been at the top level for quite some time now.
