IPL Fantasy Cricket: DC v CSK Preview


Injury-hit Delhi Capitals will look to continue their good form as they take on Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. This match #34 will be played in Sharjah on Saturday night. The Capitals have 12 points from eight matches with six wins. Chennai have six points from eight matches and are sixth in the standings.

Delhi have done well to cope up with the injury setbacks. However, the injury to Rishabh Pant has set their plans back a touch. CSK have recovered from a poor first-half and are looking a lot more balanced now.

Delhi Capitals Preview

Shreyas Iyer has been the constant scorer for Delhi this season and will be a key selection for your side. Shikhar Dhawan will be the key player, though, as he continues to make his form count. Keep an eye on Marcus Stoinis whose all-round skills are a huge bonus.

Delhi’s pace attack – Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje are a huge positive for any fantasy side. Ravi Ashwin has been miserly and will be keen to prove a point to his former employers. On that note, Axar Patel’s frugal returns make him a strong asset.

Chennai Super Kings Preview

Chennai found their team balance in the last match and are looking stronger now. Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson are crucial for the side. Ravindra Jadeja’s batting could be crucial and his striking could be utilised a bit more.

Karn Sharma and Piyush Chawla have been excelling in the middle overs controlling the play and that could be a bonus facet for selections. Shardul Thakur has been expensive but his wicket-taking skills make him a good pick.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Marcus Stoinis continues to be very strong for the Delhi Capitals. He has been striking at nearly 200 and has also taken six wickets for the Capitals side.

Sam Curran has a lot to offer to the Super Kings and has been excellent with both bat and ball. He is striking at 190.38 and has taken nine wickets which warrant a place in your fantasy team.

Kagiso Rabada has 18 wickets in the IPL this season and needs one more to reach 50 IPL wickets. He has played 26 games so far for his 49 wickets. Prolific!
