Two of the most successful franchises take on each other. The defending champions are the holders of the wooden spoon whereas the hosts are sitting comfortably at the top of the table with a game in hand. Mumbai will play all their cards tonight since a loss will virtually dash their hopes of reaching the playoffs. Chennai will look to continue their winning streak and extend their lead at the top.

The Indian batsmen - prefer Rayudu

Ambati Rayudu leads the batting charts with 283 runs at a strike rate of 159 with 15 sixes. He has been in the form of his life this season opening the batting with Shane Watson for CSK and has been very consistent.

If you have a choice between Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, and Rayudu - pick Rayudu.

Wicketkeeper for the game - Dhoni all the way

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a point to prove this IPL. If you asked anyone at the beginning of the season, no one would choose Dhoni in his fantasy team, especially considering how expensive he is. But, the Indian ex-captain has proved everyone wrong striking at a rate of 166 and has scored more runs than his counterpart Ishan Kishan of Mumbai Indians.

If you have to stick to a strict budget, Kishan is your man since he comes cheap and has been a consistent performer for MI, striking at a rate of 141.

All-rounders for the day - Watson and Krunal

Shane Watson is the third highest scorer, tied second for most wickets and second for the most economic figures for CSK. He opens the batting and often bowls in the powerplay. Dwayne Bravo bats very low down the order and he may not get to bat thus wasting your pick.

Krunal Pandya has outperformed the more famous all-rounders in his team. He has scored much more than Pollard (63 runs) and Hardik(48 runs) with 113 runs at a strike rate of 141.

Uncapped heroes - Deepak Chahar and Surya Kumar Yadav

With a motley of stars to pick for this game, staying within budget is easy if you have high performing consisting uncapped Indians on your team.


Deepak Chahar is the second highest wicket-taker for CSK and is also their most economical bowler with Dhoni preferring to bowl him on the trot for 3 overs or even finish his quota in the first ten.

Yadav has been Mumbai's best and most consistent batsmen. He is Mumbai's leading scorer with an average of 38, partnering Evin Lewis while opening.
