RCB vs CSK IPL 2019 Fantasy tips and suggestions
Wicket-keeper: There are four options available for this MS Dhoni and Jagadeesan from CSK and Parthiv Patel and Klaasen from RCB. Here MS Dhoni is the most favorable choice as he is captain of CSK. Dhoni is in good form and could play a crucial captain for Chennai in this match. Parthiv had not played matches in recent time and most probably will be selected from RCB side. However, as per fantasy league team selection, Dhoni is the best choice.
Batsmen: From Banglore’s side, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are top choices. Kohli is in destructive form while de Villiers performed well in different T-20 series all over the world. AB de Villiers is retired from international cricket but still very dangerous for his opponents. RCB could include Hetmyer in their team. Hetmyer gave a glimpse of his talent to the Indian crowd in the ODI series against India. You can select either two or all these three players in your team.
From Chennai’s side, Shane Watson and Suresh Raina are top choices. Murli Vijay is also a good choice. Watson is very destructive for any bowling lineup while Raina is arguably one of the best players ever in IPL history. He performed well in almost all IPL tournaments. You can select either two between these three players.
All-rounders: Marcus Stoinis and Colin de Grandhomme are picks from RCB side. Grandhomme could play crucial innings for RCB after Kohli and de Villiers. Choose any one of them. Bravo, Jadhav, and Jadeja are top choices from CSK side, Jadhav was in good form in Australian series. You can select any two or one player from these three players.
Bowlers: Choose Chahal and Southee from RCB. Southee is top bowler from New Zealand side and could change the game for RCB. Nathan Coulter-Nile can also be selected from Banglore’s side. From CSK, Tahir or Mohit Sharma can be selected. Tahir is not sure for playing 11. However, they have Willey and Harbhajan as a good choice too.
Captain: Virat Kohli is the best pick for this. However, if you want to go with other options than go with either Dhoni or de Villiers.
