Dream11 Fantasy Team
We have gone with the two best wicket-keeper-batsman candidates, De Kock and Ishaan Kishan, both of whom have been in good batting form this season.
Sharma, Raina and Suryakumar Yadav are automatic choices for our batting spots. On the back of his match-winning innings against SRH on 28 April, we have given the 4th spot to Ruturaj Gaikwad who has repaid the faith the CSK selectors put in him.
Jadeja and Curran simply walk into our Dream11 as all-rounders. In a normal year, they would have to fight hard with the likes of Hardik, Krunal and Pollard. But this is not a normal year. Hardik does not bowl at all, while Pollard has been less than impressive with the bat. Krunal does not match up with either Curran or Jadeja in any department.
Bumrah and Boult would be natural choices in any T20 team of the world. For our third bowling spot, we considered several players from both teams and finally settled for R Chahar who is arguably the most improved young Indian bowler of the last year or so. Chahar’s newfound confidence on the back of his selection to play for India is reflected in his wicket-taking exploits this IPL season.
Captain and Vice-captain
For our captaincy, Jadeja has no competition. He is likely to earn Dream11 points in every department of the game, batting, bowling and fielding. For our vice-captaincy, we decided to go with De Kock for the bonus value he offers from behind the stumps.
Our Dream11 prediction is as follows: De Kock (v-c), Ishaan Kishan, Sharma, Raina, Suryakumar Yadav, Gaikwad, Jadeja (c), Curran, Bumrah, Boult, R Chahar.
For our MI vs CSK Dream11, we have gone with the most consistent performers on the field of play, as reflected in the composition of our Dream11, which has 4 CSK and 7 MI players.
