Rohit Sharma has to be in the team, can play big innings and gives you swift start. Ideal for C/VC

Surya Kumar Yadav plays at two down and has potential to anchor innings and strike some big blows, watch out for him.

Hardik Pandya has been out of team after his injury, he will be looking to comeback to team, Will bowl some useful overs as well. Ideal for both the leagues. Keep him as C/VC.

Krunal Pandya  will play the same role of his brother, coming down the order and chipping in with some overs.Keep him in Grand league

Pollard seems to be in good form with the bat, played some match winning innings in the recently concluded CPL, watch out for him.

Chennai Super Kings Team Analysis:

Shane Watson played heroic innings at their last outing, have to see how he performs keeping in mind his fitness. pick him in grand league

Murali Vijay is likely to open innings as Raina pulls out of tournament. pick vijay in grand leagues.

Du Plessis one of key player for the team who bats well and controls the innings.pick him in both the leagues.

Amabti Rayudu is the player whom you can trust,will play slow but handy player who can bat through out innings and plays some power strikes

Bravo and Jadeja are must have in the team will bat and bowl lower the order and they have 7-8 over between them so don’t miss out on these players.

Dhoni is key in the team but he plays down the order and his counter part De kock plays up the order so donot pick him playing XI

Deepak Chahar has recovered from COVID 19, but his inclusion in to team is doubtful, nevertheless good player who can chip in with some wickets.

Chawla and Tahir with harbhajan out of IPL, both of them will play in playing XI, chawla can bat too, so don’t hesitate to pick them up.

Curran, Shardul and Hazlewood out of these three two will play along side Chahar in support, all these lads are talented. They had proven themselves at international stage. pick them in grand leagues.

Players to look out: Dhoni, Tahir, Duplessis, Chahar

Our take: With absence of experienced Raina, Chennai has lost invaluable player and this might be an added advantage to Mumbai and their all round strength will be tough for Chennai. Chennai will really bat their skin out to defeat Mumbai.
