Pitch Report:

Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

This is one of the most batting-friendly wickets of India. You can expect scores in the vicinity of 200. Bowlers generally get no support on this ground. In the last match pace bowlers were getting some movement and even bowlers using slower ones and cutters also got a lot of success but most probably a fresh wicket will be used so the pitch should be batting friendly.

Last 4 Matches at this ground: 

India: 240/3, WI: 173/6

CSK: 188/7, DC: 190/3

Punjab Kings: 221/6, RR: 217/7 (Pace: 12., Spin:1)

Fantasy Tips:

  1. Try to cover all the main batsmen of both teams.
  2. Sometimes spinners bowling in the 2nd inning take a good amount of wickets due to run score pressure so you should try them in the GL.

 

CSK Team Preview:

They are one of the most successful sides of IPL history however they struggled badly in the last season. Lack of power hitters and injury hampered their team in the last season. Their team has done some smart buys in this season however they are still missing power hitters in the top order. Lack of match practice will be another concern for the team as many players were not active on the cricket field in the last 2-3 months. They have lost the last match in a one-sided manner however they are expected to go with the same playing11.

Expected 4 Overseas Players: Moeen Ali, Faf Duplessis, Sam Curran, and DJ Bravo

Probable11 of the team:

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad(RHB)
  • Faf Du Plessis(RHB)
  • Moeen Ali(LHB+RAO)
  • Suresh Raina(LHB+RAO)
  • Ambati Rayudu(RHB)
  • MS Dhoni (C and WK)(RHB)
  • Ravindra Jadeja, (LHB+LAO)
  • Sam Curran, (LHB+LAM)
  • Shardul Thakur,(RHB+RAM)
  • Dwayne Bravo, (RHB+RAM)
  • Deepak Chahar, (RHB+RAM)

Death Overs: DJ Bravo and Shardul Thakur

Opening Overs: Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran

Live Fantasy Helper:

  • Moeen Ali should bowl against C Gayle and N Pooran.
  • Deepak Chahar will most probably bowl 3 overs in the initial 6 overs.

Chances of Bowling of Suresh Raina is less as they already have specialist off-spinner, Moeen Ali.
