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)

IPL 2021: 

MI vs RCB:  MI 159-9, RCB: 160-8 

(Only two wickets to spinners)

SECTION 2: Predicted XI’s: 

KKR: 

Gill (RHB) 

Rana (LHB) 

Tripathi (RHB)

Morgan* (LHB) (C) 

DK (RHB, WK)

Russell* (RHB, RAM) 

Narine* (RAO, LHB)/Shakib (LAO, LHB)

Pat Cummins* (RAF, RHB) 

Mavi (RAF)/Harbhajan (RAO)

Krishna (RAF)

Varun (RALB)

*Narine & Tripathi’s place under threat, now with better quality options available (Shakib & Iyer)

*If there’s any venue Harbhajan can play, this is it. Has done exceptionally well here for CSK. In that case, KKR can play Shakib in place of Narine. 

SRH: 

Warner* (LHB) (C) 

Saha (RHB) (WK)

Pandey (RHB) 

Williamson*(RHB) 

Shankar (RHB, RAM) 

Samad (RHB, RALB) 

Nabi (RAO, RHB)/Mujeeb (RAO/RHB, RAO)

Rashid* (RALB, RAM) 

Bhuvi (RAM) 

Natarajan (LAM) 

Sandeep (RAM) 

*SRH’s 4th overseas will again be the most difficult choice for SRH. And at a venue like Chennai, SRH might play Nabi or even Mujeeb in place of Bairstow. 

*If Bairstow plays, then Saha out and Garg or Abhishek in.

Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top Picks: 

David Warner: A default captaincy choice in small leagues. Most reliable batsmen in IPL and absolutely loves playing against KKR.

Does even better while batting first vs KKR: 

Warner vs KKR: 

Innings Average 
Batting first54 
Batting second34 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both. 

Shubman Gill: Good form with the bat, exceptional player of spin and good recent scores against SRH. 

Gill vs SRH in the last two innings as an opener: 36(37), 70*(62)

Also scored 75*(36) in the practice game.

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Andre Russell: Even though his worst batting numbers are against SRH & he is yet to score a 50 against them, he’ll still be my top pick in this game in small leagues due to his overall all-round value and his numbers at Chennai.

Russell in his last two innings at Chepauk: 50* & 88* (his highest IPL score)

Also, did well in the practice games 22*(6), 17(7) 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Dinesh Karthik: Again, just like Russell, his worst batting numbers have come against SRH. But he’ll be playing at his home ground (so is Vijay Shankar who scored 95* in the practice game) and is in exceptional form with the bat. Also scored 42 & 92 in the practice games.

Captaincy suitability: Grand leagues only. (In that case, drop KKR top order in that team)
