CSK vs KXIP Fantasy Tips
Chennai Super Kings:
Chennai is coming off a loss from their previous match against Mumbai Indians. Chasing a competitive target of 171, Super Kings were never really in the hunt as they lost top 3 batsmen cheaply which meant Jadhav and Dhoni had to rebuild but the latter in particular never looked settled tonight. Once the partnership was broken, there wasn’t much that Jadhav (58) could do and the game petered out to a rather dull finish. They have more problems to face as Dwyane Bravo has pulled hamstring injury, they have already lost Ngidi and Willey. Santner is looking probable prospect for Bravo replacement.
Probable XI: Shane Watson, MS Dhoni (c &wk), Suresh Raina, RavindraJadeja, KedarJadhav, AmbatiRayudu, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Mohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, M Santner
Kings XI Punjab
Kings XI Punjab moves to second on the points table – courtesy three wins in four matches. Wins like these will lift the morale of the team. In the absence of Gayle, Ashwin experimented a lot, something which he’s never afraid to do, and ended up on the winning side against Delhi. Sam Curran opened the innings and played some eye-pleasing strokes but got out, but his role with the ball was amazing. He turned the match on its head he took 4 wickets for just 11 runs (including a hat trick). All the bowlers responded well under pressure situation. Ashwin will play a huge role in this pitch as he has played for years at this pitch. Along with him, Mujeeb will have a crucial role in this match, also they might bring Andrew Tye in place of HardusViljoen.
Probable XI: RavichandranAshwin (c), MayankAgarwal, Mandeep Singh, David Miller, Mohammed Shami, Lokesh Rahul (wk), MuruganAshwin, Sarfaraz Khan, HardusViljoen/Andrew Tye, Sam Curran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
