The 17th match of the 15th season of IPL will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad today. This match will be played at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai from 3:30 PM. Four-time IPL winner Chennai and Sunrisers, who have won the title once, are currently included in the teams of the bottom. In such a situation, both the teams will try their best for the first win today. Before the start of this big match let us know which players can be included in the Fantasy XI team to win maximum points.
In today’s match, it can be beneficial to have Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Nicholas Pooran as part of your fantasy team as wicketkeepers. In the first two matches, Mahi’s bat has been seen in full color this time. In the last match, the entire team of Chennai was dealt cheaply in front of the huge target and Dhoni too could only score 23 runs. But in front of Sunrisers, Dhoni has scored 540 runs from 17 innings with the help of 38 fours and 32 sixes. His average during this period has been 67.50. Even today Mahi’s helicopter can fly against Sunrisers.
Talk about Nicholas Pooran, on the basis of his ability to play long shots, he has been associated with Hyderabad. His career strike rate in T20 is 142.04. If Sunrisers want to make a comeback in the tournament, then Pooran will have to break his fast for not scoring runs.
The inclusion of batsmen Ritura
Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tripathi and Kane Williamson as batsmen in today’s fantasy team can fetch bumper points. Rituraj has scored 120 runs in 2 matches against Sunrisers at a strike rate of 146. Despite his poor performance this season, skipper Ravindra Jadeja has expressed confidence in him to make a comeback. In such a situation, the bat of the season can rule today. Uthappa, who hit 50 at a strike rate of 185 against Lucknow at the beginning of the season, is reminiscent of his early days. Even today, he can create a ruckus in the top order.
Rahul Tripathi has a strike rate of 139 against Chennai. His highest score against this team is 81 runs. Rahul has indicated a return to form by scoring 44 runs in 30 balls against Lucknow. Today, he will be desperate to cross the team’s path by playing a responsible innings. Kane Williamson has so far scored 338 runs in 10 matches against Chennai at a strike rate of 142. Today Williamson will try his best to win the team while playing the captaincy innings.
Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja can rain points as all-rounders today. Moeen has scored runs at a strike rate of 140 against Sunrisers. If Moeen has to bat consistently in the top order for Chennai, then today he will have to prove his worth.
Sir Jadeja may not have performed well in the beginning of the season but he is walking in a good frame of mind. He has said that there is no extra pressure on him regarding the captaincy. Today he will leave no stone unturned to register his first win of 3 seasons under his captaincy.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik and Chris Jordan can fill your bag with fantasy points by taking wickets in today’s match. Swing’s Sultan Bhuvneshwar has bowled against Rajasthan and Lucknow by holding a superb mark. In today’s match, Bhuvi can make a big difference with his bowling. Umran, who is bowling with a speed of more than 150, can wreak havoc on Chennai’s batsmen today.
Chris Jordan, who took the wickets of all-rounders like Shahrukh Khan and Odeon Smith for just 23 runs against Punjab, can still turn the game around.
Picking Hardik Pandya as the captain and Chris Jordan as the vice-captain can fetch a lot of points.
