Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top Picks: 

Rishab Pant: Excellent form with the bat, wicket-keeping and also, i feel, extra responsibility of being a captain will help him as a batsman. Big season coming up for Pant, the batsman. Also, good numbers against CSK and at Wankhede. 

Pant at Wankhede: 

Innings 
Runs125
Average 62.5

Pant vs CSK: 

Innings 6
Runs222
Average 44.4
HS79

Pant: The Wicketkeeper is also a very underrated pick for fantasy players, he had the the most dismissals as a WK in 2019 (24). Lots of Bonus points. 

Captaincy suitability: Small leagues, Mini GL’s & Grand leagues. 

Faf: Top scorer for CSK last season, not facing Rabada (who has troubled him) & Nortje would be a relief. Also, has good numbers against DC and also decent numbers at Wankhede. 

Recent scores of: 43, 58, DNP, 39, 33 against DC. 

Captaincy suitability: Small & Grand leagues 

Stoinis: Decent form with the bat and because Rabada & Nortje are unavailable and their backups are not of the same quality, he is likely to bowl as well. Might even bowl at the death, if Tom Curran doesn’t start. 

Stoinis was the only player in IPL 2020 to have scored 300 runs with 10+ wickets 

Captaincy suitability: Small leagues & grand leagues. 

Preference: Batting first or even bowling first (value at death) depending on the overall combination 

Dhawan: In decent touch with the bat and no major wicket taking threat in the current CSK lineup. Good numbers against them as well. 

Dhawan in last 5 innings vs CSK: 

MatRunsAvgSRHS50s/100s
522456141101*1/1

Captaincy suitability: Small leagues & grand leagues. 

Shardul Thakur: Again, in excellent form with the bowl, was the leading wicket taker in the last T20I series and offers a lot of fantasy value in the first innings bowling at the death. 

Thakur in IPL since 2018: 

Innings Wickets SR
Bowling first2617.2 
Bowling second825.8

His knuckle ball is doing wonders for him and since IPL 2019, he is picking a wicket on every 9th Knuckle ball. 

Captaincy suitability: Mini GL & GL, and in SL’s bowling first. 

Grand league captaincy picks! 

Shaw & Uthappa: Both had a very poor IPL 2020, and since then, both of them have scored big runs in domestic cricket. Shaw, in particular, has been in sublime form. 

Shaw in Vijay Hazare: Average of 165, SR of 138 

Uthappa in Vijay Hazare: Average of 75.4, SR of 132
