IPL 2018, Qualifier 1, CSK v SRH: Fantasy tips

When: Qualifier 1 – May 22nd, 7 PM IST
Where: Wankhede, Mumbai
Conditions: Weather is clear, a High scoring game is on the cards.

Chennai Super Kings will try to stick to the same team that played most of the games. Dhoni doesn’t love to change too many things to the side, so expect the same XI that won most of the matches.

From the last match, Shane Watson might come in for Faf du Plessis, other than that there might not be more changes to the team.

For Hyderabad, Yusuf Pathan will come back to the team and Williamson might not bring Hales in, but stick with Carlos Brathwaite to add an option for bowling.

PROBABLE XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Carlos Brathwaite, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma

PROBABLE XI: Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Sam Billings/Faf du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi, Shardul Thakur

IPL 2018, RR v CSK: Fantasy picks

Rajasthan is just a match away from being eliminated from the tournament, whereas, Chennai is one match away from qualifying to the playoffs. In a way, it is an important match for both the teams. Buttler as the opener has given new hopes to Rajasthan. His brutal power hitting mixed with classic cricketing shots are impressive to watch, but other than Buttler, nobody has even provided starts to the team. If Rajasthan needs to win today, they need to perform as a unit.
Chennai, the team that bats deep had troubles with death bowling in the past, but the inclusion of Ngidi and Willey has balanced the side well.

Here are the fantasy picks for today’s match:

Safe Pick

Ambati Rayudu: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 73

He is a regular name now in the fantasy cricket. Now, this shows his consistency and the way he has led the team from the front with his scores.

Hot Pick

Jos Buttler: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 163

The change in batting spot is doing wonders for Buttler. Four fifties in four matches now, and he has got only better. Can someone from CSK stop him?

Tricky Pick

Ben Stokes: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 49

The England all-rounder’s lack of form is one of the biggest reasons why Royals are pushed into this position. With a slight outside chance to make it to playoffs, Royals will expect Stokes to perform.

The darkhorse

Lungi Ngidi: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 44

Ngidi wasn’t given many opportunities in this tournament so far. When the opportunity came his way, he grabbed them, and he came on top with his impressive bowling.
