CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Kolkata on October 29, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Chennai vs Kolkata on October 29 For Chennai Super Kings, there’s nothing, but pride to play for in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League. The team, captained by MS Dhoni, became the first team to be eliminated from the T20 extravaganza. However, they can take heart from the fact that they beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli, by eight wickets in Dubai after a strong all-round show. The Yellow Army will next be facing the Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday, October 29 in Dubai itself. In their previous meeting, CSK faltered in the run-chase and lost at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. As far as KKR are concerned, they need a win to get back in the top four. Eoin Morgan and Co would be going into the game on the back of an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Kings XI Punjab. Best economical pick – Varun Chakravarthy is the most valuable player for Kolkata Knight Riders. He showed what wonders he can do against DC. The mystery spinner ruined DC’s middle-order, picking five wickets while giving only 20 runs in four overs. He is the game-changer and difference-maker for the franchise. Top captains & vice captains – Sunil Narine has had his travails with the ball in hand. However, the West Indies tweaker made his comeback and is currently a part of KKR’s plans. With the bat, the left-hander notched a half-century against the Capitals and he is in a good rhythm. Last time around against CSK, he was introduced into the attack after the 10th over and he helped his team win the game from a stage of hopelessness. Sam Curran has been a shining light for the Super Kings in the tournament. The southpaw has performed efficiently with both bat and ball. In the last game, the left-arm pacer picked up three wickets and restricted RCB to a below-par score. Curran has 173 runs at an average and strike-rate of 21.62 and 136.22 respectively. He is also their leading wicket-taker with 13 wickets to his name. Smart pick – While Gaikwad took his time to settle, Faf du Plessis at the other end attacked the RCB bowlers. The right-hander gave CSK a quick start in the run-chase scoring 25 off 13 balls with two fours and two maximums. The protean batsman has been CSK’s highest scorer this season scoring 401 runs with 4 half-centuries. Cautious Pick – Prasidh Krishna proved to be expensive in the last match, conceding 19 runs in his two overs. Overall, in six matches in the IPL 2020, he has picked up four wickets. My XI – Sunil Narine (Captain), Sam Curran (Vice-Captain), Faf du Plessis, Varun Chakravarthy, Deepak Chahar, Pat Cummins, Shubhman Gill, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Bangalore on October 28, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Bangalore on October 28 It was after the defeat against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Super Over earlier in the tournament that the Mumbai Indians have really come into their zone. After that heartbreaking loss, MI went on to register five consecutive wins before the Super Over bug bit them again. The game went into the second Super Over against the Kings XI Punjab but MI couldn’t get over the line. They bounced back after that loss wins a win against theCSKbut lost their last against Rajasthan Royals courtesy aStokesspecial. MI’s opponents for this game, RCB, also do not have the winning momentum on their side. The team lost their last game against CSK by 8 wickets. At this stage, both MI and RCB have got 7 wins from 11 games. Thus, these two are essentially fighting it out for a spot in the top two. Both of them will be eager to get over the line and give themselves a second chance in the playoffs. Hence, this should be a highly competitive battle. Best economical pick – Devdutt Padikkal has been one of the brightest young talents in IPL 2020, having displayed his hunger for quick run-scoring. For all his promise, Devdutt Padikkal could only score 22 off 21 balls. The left-hander also mustered a half-century in the last encounter against Mumbai Indians. Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli failed in the first three games, but then he found his mojo and is currently RCB’s leading run-scorer in the ongoing edition. In 11 matches, the Challengers’ skipper has 415 runs at an average and strike-rate of 59.28 and 125 respectively. That he is averaging nearly 60 after his initial failures show the class he possesses. If Kohli finds his feet against MI, then the bowlers could be chasing leather. Suryakumar Yadav would be out there to prove a point after missing out from India’s tour of Australia. The right-hander has been in riveting form, batting at number three. The Mumbai-born batsman has played at a strike-rate of nearly 150, showing how much fluent he has been in the event. In 10 games, he has 283 runs at an average of 31.44 with a top score of an unbeaten 79. Smart pick – Quinton de Kock, the wicketkeeper-batsman, was out after scoring just six runs. He will look to play big knock against RCB to take revenge for their defeat. Overall, the wicketkeeper-batsman has scored 374 runs in 11 matches at the healthy strike rate of 143.29 Cautious Pick – Aaron Finch has only one fifty in IPL 2020 and has remained highly inconsistent this year. Against the Chennai Super Kings, Aaron Finch looked quite good, striking three boundaries; however, he top-edged one off Sam Curran. My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Suryakumar Yadav (Vice-Captain), Quinton de kock, Devdut Padikkal, W Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Chris Morris, AB de Viliers, Kieron Pollard, Ishan Kishan
