Chennai Super Kings - Indian T20 League 2020 Fantasy Guide

by MyTeam11 Fantasy Sports App developer

Chennai Super Kings are the second most successful side in Indian T20 League, winning the trophy 3 times (2010, 2011, & 2018). The world’s most successful captain MS Dhoni is the only captain who captained a single franchise in all seasons. Chennai will lock horns against defending champions Mumbai Indians on September 19 in the tournament opener. For the new season, they have included some quality players and their side looks quite better but they also lost their top performers Raina and Harbhajan who took their name due to personal reasons. 

In today’s fantasy section, we break Chennai Super Kings on a fantasy table. How we decode fantasy cricket league on Indian fantasy app and play fantasy cricket & win cash daily.

Opening 

Players available - Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Murali Vijay 

Our picks: Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson 

Chennai had no more confusion on the opening slot as Dhoni would definitely give a nod over Rayudu and Watson who had good numbers in the last two seasons. Watson is a big asset for the Chennai but the performance matters a lot. He is the top-scorer for Chennai since 2018 with 953 runs at an average of 30.74. If someone underperforms here, we might see Faf as the opener in the second half of the tournament. Murali Vijay is also a big option for Chennai in the opening slot. 

Middle-order 

Players available – Kedar Jadhav, Faf du Plessis, MS Dhoni, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Narayan Jagadeesan

 Our picks: Faf du Plessis, Kedar Jadhav

The middle-order might scare Dhoni in the tournament after Raina’s unavailability. Faf needs to play the sheet anchor at number three to carry the innings forward. He has a good experience of T20 and has guided Chennai home in may crunch situations. Faf has scored 558 runs in the last two seasons at an average of 34.88. Kedar Jadhav is also useful and he can also take inspiration from his form for Chennai. Will Dhoni promote himself up in the order? The captain can take this call as the middle-order is not looking good without Raina. 

Finishing slot 

Players available - MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo

Our picks: MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo 

Chennai Super Kings has the biggest finisher of the limited-overs cricket but how Dhoni score in the tournament after the retirement will be a big question. He hasn’t been the part of any competitive cricket after the World Cup 2019 but in yellow colors, the captain is a threat to the opposition. Jadeja performed high at down-order and he can accelerate the innings in death-overs. Along with Dhoni, Jadeja would be a big finisher for Chennai this season. Dwayne Bravo has rescued Chennai with his blistering performances and Chennai can relax when he is in his top form. 

Spinners 

Players available - Mitchell Santner, R Sai Kishore, Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla

Our picks: Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla 

UAE is a paradise for the spinners and the team would try different options after the tournament progresses. Imran Tahir and Piyush Chawla are the two most possible picks for Chennai in these conditions. Jadeja also provides the bowling option along with batting and his performance would be a key factor for Chennai. The spin department is pretty effective compared to other teams. They also have Mithell Santner and Sai Kishore in backup who can also play a vital role later in the tournament. 

Pacers 

Players available - Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Sam Curran, Josh Hazlewood, Lungi Ngidi, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson 

Our picks: Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Dwayne Bravo

The Indian pace-attack has been so consistent for Chennai but somehow, this is not the best part of Chennai. They have some quality fast-bowlers in the backup but picking 4 overseas players is creating big trouble for Dhoni. Bravo has been excellent in death-overs but due to the injury, his bowling is not as good as we saw in the last couple of years. They got Hazlewood and Sam Curran from the auction but they might be seen later in the tournament. Lungi Ngidi has been outstanding with the new ball and in death-overs. Ngidi will be seen after a few matches in place of any overseas player. 

Fantasy Picks 

Scoring player: Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni 

Differential player: Deepak Chahar, Kedar Jadhav

Budget player: Piyush Chawla, Sam Curran
