In the 8th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Chennai Super Kings will face Punjab Kings on Friday. A lot of fantasy points can be found in this match to be held on the batting friendly pitch of Wankhede Stadium. Yes, for this you have to choose the right players. Let us try to know which players can get more points in fantasy games under the current circumstances of Mumbai.
Two wicketkeepers can choose
The captains of both teams are wicketkeepers. Fantasy XI has the option of picking 3 wicketkeepers. Lokesh Rahul should definitely be selected. Rahul scored 90+ in the last four innings of T20 at Wankhede. Apart from him, Nicholas Pooran who has been batting at number 4 from Punjab can also be selected. Dhoni comes down quite a bit in the batting order. His selection will only work when the Chennai innings falter or Dhoni comes up in the batting order.
Raina and Gayle can do amazing in batting
The top order of both teams is strong. You can select one of Chennai’s Faf Duplessis and Rituraj Gaikwad. At the same time, a Punjab opener will already join your team as a wicketkeeper (Lokesh Rahul). Deepak Hooda and Chris Gayle have batted well in the last match. So they can be given space.
Two foreign all-rounders can work
The Punjab team looks weak on the all-rounder’s front. At the same time, the team of Chennai is in good condition. Two all-rounders can be included in the team. Moin Ali and Sam Karan may be good choices.
Shami and Arshadeep will be seen in bowling
Fast bowlers have taken 34 wickets in the three matches so far held at Wankhede this season. So fast bowlers should be more in your fantasy XI too. From Punjab, Mohammed Shami and Arshadeep Singh can be chosen. Both are wicket-takers. At the same time, Dwayne Bravo can be included in the team from Chennai team.
Pitch and Condition Report
So far 6 innings have been played in Wankhede this season. A score above 180 runs has been scored 4 times. The Delhi-Rajasthan match was low scoring. If there is no grass on the pitch, then a big score can be made. An initial two-three over swing can be found in both innings.
Captain and vice captain
It might be better to make Lokesh Rahul and Suresh Raina captains and vice-captains.
