Mumbai and Chennai will square off against each other in what will be a clash of bottom-placed teams. While Chennai are placed at the ninth position with eight points, Mumbai are the wooden spoon holder with four points. Although Mumbai are eliminated, they would love to take a win home while CSK will be desperate for a win looking at their slim chances for qualification. Thus, it is expected to be an interesting battle between two teams who have failed to impress this season.
From the Chennai Super Kings’ camp, there are a few players who are certain to do well. Both openers Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have got some good runs in their last few games and thus become an automatic pick for the fantasy team. Moeen Ali has also chipped in either with bat or ball. Ambati Rayudu and Shivam Dube can also be picked considering their ability to aggregate some quick runs. From the bowling department, veteran Dwayne Bravo and youngster Maheesh Theekshana can be picked.
From the Mumbai Indians’ camp, Ishan Kishan returning among runs is a good sign and the southpaw is expected to carry his good run against CSK as well. Rohit Sharma has got starts but is desperate for a big inning. So, these two can be added to the fantasy team for some extra points. Tim David also finds a place considering his ability to go big at the end. From MI’s bowling, Jasprit Bumrah and Kumar Kartikeya seem the only bankable options on current form.
