Phase wise numbers at Chennai: (last two seasons)

Overs Average wicketsOthers
1-61.9 1.3-1.4

So, at Chennai, you can expect more wickets with the new ball than any other venue and interestingly, the lowest at the death among all the current venues. 

You already know how to use that in your fantasy team. 

Best bowling type at the venue: Off-spin (Thanks to Bhajji)

SECTION 2: Predicted XI’s: 


Kohli (C) (RHB) 

Devdutt Padikkal (LHB) 

Maxwell* (RHB) 

ABD (WK)* (RHB) 

Rajat Patidar/Sachin Baby (RHB/LHB) 

Sundar (LHB, RAO) 

Dan Christian* (RHB, RAM)

Shahbaz Ahmed (LAO, LHB)

Kyle Jamieson* (RAM, RHB) 

Chahal (RALB) 

Saini (RAF)/Siraj (RAM)

*As per the current overseas combination and the conditions at Chepauk, two should play among Shahbaz, Siraj & Saini. 


Rohit (C) (RHB) 

QDK (WK) (LHB)/Lynn (Kishan opens, if QDK misses due to quarantine)

Suryakumar (RHB) 

Kishan (LHB) 

Hardik (RHB, RAM) 

Pollard (RHB, RAM)

Krunal (LHB, LAO) 


Rahul Chahar (RALB) 

Boult (LAM) 

Bumrah (RAF) 

*Doubts on QDK’s availability. While all other South African players are currently in quarantine and will not be available for the first game for their respective sides, there are reports that QDK had a bubble to bubble transfer through a charter plane. But so far, I haven’t seen him anywhere with the team. 

*If QDK misses, Lynn can open. Or MI can open with Kishan (more likely to happen) and play Tiwary or Neesham in the MO. 

*MI have the luxury to go with just the 3 overseas and play an extra Indian spinner as Hardik is bowling fit.

Section 7: Player performance at the venue: 

MI & RCB batsmen at Chepauk: 


MI & RCB bowlers at Chepauk: 


Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top Picks: 

Virat Kohli: Quite an obvious choice, and he’s a top pick not just because of his reputation and current form but also because: 

He is back opening the innings, and if you’re a Virat fan who is waiting for since forever for his next ton, you’ll be happy to know Virat’s all IPL centuries have come while opening the innings 

Virat Kohli in IPL, since 2016: 

Bat Position InningsRunsAverage SR50/100
No 32693542.51288/0
No 435125.51060/0

Virat has the second highest average for any opener in IPL. (KL at first)

No specific threat against a particular opposition bowler who has troubled him in this format. Trent Boult who has dismissed him 3 times in 2019 ODI’s giving away just 7 runs is yet to dismiss him in T20’s. 

Virat against Boult in IPL + T20I’s: 


No slow leggies or slow spinners in the opposition to trouble Virat: 

Virat has recently struggled against spin, especially, leg-spin, but not every leg-spinner troubles Virat. He averages well against spinners who bowl above 90 kmph and struggles against the ones who bowl under 90 kmph and gives a lot of flight. 

Chahar, Krunal and Chawla all come under the first category. 

(Chahar has dismissed him once in 8 deliveries, but that is a very low sample size)

Virat Kohli vs spinners in T20’s since 2016: 

Virat KohliInnings Average 
90-100 kmph7985.9
<90 kmph9245.8

Also, decent record at the venue and above factors makes Virat a good choice for your fantasy captaincy, and even better if he chases. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Suryakumar Yadav:Excellent form with the bat, very high on confidence after his performance for India and an exceptional player of spin. (which is extremely important at a venue like Chepauk) Also, has done well against RCB recently. Scores of 0, 79*(43), 38(24), 29(23). More importantly, except Chahal, has never been dismissed by any other current RCB bowler. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small leagues and grand leagues. 

Rohit Sharma:Good form with the bat, and no particular opposition bowler to have troubled Rohit in the past. Good numbers batting first against RCB, so you can prefer him as one of your captaincy options batting first. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Chahal: Always a reliable bowler when he plays for RCB, conditions favourable for spin and good numbers against MI too, in both the innings. 

Chahal vs MI: 

Innings 13
Wickets 19
Average 21.8

Captaincy Suitability: Small leagues, Mini GL & GL. 

Bumrah: Even though he’ll be playing white ball cricket after a long time, he is one of the very best in this format. And he loves playing against RCB. 

Bumrah vs RCB: (His most wickets against any IPL team) 

Innings 15
Wickets 19 

Captaincy suitability: Small leagues (bowling first), Mini GL & GL. 

ABD: Would have been listed right at the top if he was playing regular cricket. Has great numbers against MI and offers a allround value with his keeping too, but has been out of quarantine on 7th and has  not played any competitive game after last IPL. 

AB vs MI: (His most runs against any IPL team) 

Innings 22
Average 45.4

In last 5 innings vs Mumbai, he has 3 fifties and averages 72 

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL, GL and if you want to consider in SL, then prefer batting first.
