We are nearing the end of the Indian Premier League (IPL). It’s match no. 49 and for the second time, Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing Chennai Super Kings this season. KKR were outclassed by the resurrecting KXIP in their previous game. Their batting looked like it wasn’t up for the task and they posted a below-par score on the board. The likes of Mandeep Singh and Chris Gayle toyed with their bowling.
KKR will have to come up with a master plan to keep themselves in the race for the playoffs. CSK for the first time will not be a part of the playoffs. It wasn’t their year because in spite of having match-winning youngsters and veterans in their squad, they failed to get a spot in the top 4. Their bowling and batting, both have looked a tad distorted. They’ll be playing to restore their pride and end their campaign on high.
Here are the 3 players whom you can include in your Dream11 team as C or VC for CSK vs KKR game:
1. Sunil Narine (9.5 credits)
Sunil Narine has been a match-winner for KKR over the years. He has started contributing to his team both with the ball and bat. He can get some quick runs early on in the innings or even in the middle. His bowling though has become a bit less effective since his action has changed but it is sufficient enough to choke the flow of runs. Include him Dream11 team and multiply your points.
2. Lockie Ferguson (8.5 credits)
Lockie Ferguson has been brilliant, not just with the ball but also with the bat. He played a brilliant knock which helped his team reach a respectable total in the previous match. Though he has picked only 6 wickets in 4 matches, it’s his economy of 5.93 that has been impressive. Therefore you can opt for him as your multiplier for your Dream11 team.
3. Faf du Plessis (10.5 credits)
Faf du Plessis has been brilliant with the bat for CSK, not just this season but over the years. He has 401 runs to his name this season from 12 matches, which includes 4 fifties with the best score of 87*. It’s well known fact that he’s a brilliant fielder. Hence, he yields you a few points there as well. Therefore, you have many reasons to opt him as C or VC in your Dream11 team.
