IPL 2018, Final: CSK v SRH fantasy picks

The final showdown is here. The last match of this year’s IPL and two of the best teams will lock horns to lift the trophy. It is not going to be easy after all. CSK has beaten SRH in all their three previous meetings in this year so far and SRH will be hoping to bounce back.

Kane Williamson as a captain took a courageous decision to make changes to his team the other night. His captaincy needs a special mention as well but the night well and truly belonged to Rashid Khan. For CSK, it is wonderful that all their players have won at least one match for the team. Looking at the form of both the teams, CSK is stronger but as said, it is not going to be easy after all.

Safe Pick

Rashid Khan
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 220

No wonders here. Expect more fireworks from him in the all-important finale against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday.

Hot pick

Lungi Ngidi
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 55

The South African pacer has used the conditions well so far. He by far is the best bowler the Chennai Super Kings needed.

Tricky Pick

Shane Watson
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 9

Dhoni’s bowling options are too strong that he didn’t have to use Watson in his recent games. The CSK opener is finding hard to get his timing right as well.

The darkhorse

Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 13

The Indian frontline bowler is taken for a lot in his recent games and for Sunrisers, which is termed as the best bowling team, they need Bhuvneshwar Kumar to bounce back.
