IPL Fantasy, KKR Vs CSK- Best XI to pick for today's match

13.76K   //    03 May 2018, 13:26 IST


Delhi Daredevils held their nerve to beat Rajasthan Royals by 4 runs in a rain-interrupted closely fought match yesterday. The start of the match was delayed due to rain and the number of overs were reduced to 18. Prithvi Shaw started off brightly and had a good partnership with Iyer before Pant took over and smashed RR’s bowling to all parts. DD were 196 in 17.1 overs before rain intervened again and RR were set a target of 151 in 12 overs. Buttler finally came good for RR with a brutal knock of 67 from 26 balls but RR’s middle order just couldn’t get them over the line. Yesterday’s win means that DD are still with a chance to make it to the play-offs.

A very good match to look forward to today as the table toppers Chennai Super Kings take on Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens. Russell tonked CSK’s bowlers all around the park the last time these two teams played but Billings helped CSK chase down a huge target. Will Billings be back for the game today? Faf has not looked in great touch in the games he has played. Shardul Thakur is also expected to be back in for CSK to replace Asif who was expensive in the last game. Rana has issues with his back and Jaggi/Rinku could replace him in the XI tonight for KKR.

Today’s Best Eleven for Starpick

1.     Shane Watson (10.9 M- 255.5 Points)- CP

2.     Sunil Narine (9.9 M- 197.5 Points)-CP

3.     Ambati Rayudu (10.6 M- 249.5 Points)- CP

4.     Chris Lynn (9.1 M- 168 Points)

5.     Robin Uthappa (9.1 M- 145.5 Points)

9.     Kuldeep Yadav (8.8 M- 99 Points)

10.  Lungi Ngidi (6.2 M- 12 Points)

11.  Karn Sharma (8.5 M- 47 Points)

Alternate Options

There are alternate options for the players who have not been listed under the Core players in the above eleven. You can consider these players in your team but ensure that you are able to accommodate them in your available budget!

1.     Suresh Raina (10.2 M- 160.5 Points)

2.     Dwayne Bravo (10.2 M -166 Points)

3.     Dinesh Karthik (9.6 M- 182.5 Points)

4.     Piyush Chawla (8.2 M- 79 Points)

5.     Ravindra Jadeja (8.9 M- 99.5 Points)

Captain Options

1.     Shane Watson – One of the most obvious choices in the game involving CSK, he has been in sublime form and was the man of the match in their last game vs DD. He is likely to bowl in the powerplay and has the potential to get you points with the ball as well.

2.     Andre Russell – He was struggling with injury two games back but looks like he is back to full fitness now. He was exceptional in the last game vs CSK and given CSK’s bowling problems at the death, making him as your captain will be a wise choice.
