IPL Fantasy, DD vs CSK- Best XI to pick for today's match

5.00K   //    18 May 2018, 14:51 IST

RCB kept their hopes of qualifying alive with a much-needed win over Sunrisers Hyderabad yesterday. RCB posted their tournament high score of 218 before managing to restrict SRH to 204 in their 20 overs. SRH were very much in the chase till the last over but Siraj conceded only 5 runs picking up the crucial wicket of Williamson (81) to seal the victory.

Earlier, RCB had posted a mammoth total of 218 thanks largely to AB De Villiers (69) and Moeen Ali (65) with good cameos from Grandhomme and Sarfaraz in the end. RCB now have to win against RR in their final match to have a great chance of making it to the playoffs. RR have been struck with a major blow as both Buttler and Stokes will not be available for their final match vs RCB.

CSK will be playing DD at Pune today after a good break. They are already assured of a place in the top two unless they lose the next two matches by huge margins. DD, meanwhile, are out of the tournament and will be playing for pride. CSK and DD are unlikely to make any changes to their playing eleven from their last games.

Here’s our suggestion for the playing XI in today’s games (5 core players who are a must have for today’s game are marked as “CP”).

Today’s Best Eleven for DD vs CSK

1.     Ambati Rayudu-CP

2.     Shane Watson-CP

3.     Shreyas Iyer-CP

4.     Rishabh Pant-CP

5.     Prithvi Shaw


6.     MS Dhoni

7.     Suresh Raina

8.     Amit Mishra

9.     Trent Boult

10.  Dwayne Bravo-CP

11.  Deepak Chahar


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 in place of those who are not core players.

1.     Shardul Thakur

2.     Glenn Maxwell

3.     Harbhajan Singh

4.     Ravindra Jadeja

5.     Sandeep Lamichhane



 Captain Options

1.     Ambati Rayudu – He has been in terrific form and scored an unbeaten 100 in the last match against SRH. A lot of people have benefited by having him as captain this season in their fantasy sides.


2.     Rishabh Pant – He is third in the list of most runs scored in IPL 2018 and he has got them quickly. He has the highest strike rate among the batsman who have scored 300 or more in the IPL. With CSK’s bowling problems well known, there is a possibility of another big innings from him today.
