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.

Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top Picks: 

Rohit Sharma: Looked very good in the last game before he unfortunately got run out. Will be playing against his favourite side, KKR. 

Rohit Sharma vs KKR: (His most runs & highest average against any IPL team) 

(Also the most runs by any batsman against an opposition)

Innings 26
Runs939
Average 47
SR133
506
1001

Does even better against them in first innings: 

Rohit vs KKR:  (innings wise) 

Innings Runs Average 50/100
1045857.253/1
17481403/0

Rohit’s last 5 innings vs KKR: 35, 80, 55*, 12, 36 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Suryakumar Yadav: Excellent form with the bat, looked very good in the opening game and good numbers against his former side. 

Suryakumar Yadav vs KKR: (His best average against any IPL side) 

Innings 6
Runs224
Average 44.8
SR149
HS59
501

Captaincy suitability:Small & grand leagues both.

Shubman Gill: Looked very good before he got out to Rashid in the last game. He has struggled against Boult recently, but with Rana playing aggressively at the other end, he can take his time. 

Coming after a very good knock of 75*(36) in the practice game and also his highest IPL score of 76 came against MI. 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.

Jasprit Bumrah: In the last two games at Chepauk, 16 wickets fell in 16-20 overs phase and nobody is better than Bumrah in that period. Also got a couple of wickets in the opening game and has 12 wickets against KKR. 

Captaincy suitability:Grand leagues. 

Dinesh Karthik: KKR has a never ending obsession with a R-L combination every time which makes KKR’s games the most unpredictable in fantasy. If the KKR top order fails (with Rana & Tripathi in the top 3, will happen regularly) DK will get enough deliveries to face and he is in some exceptional form right now. 

DK in practice games: 42*(19), 92(62)

DK vs SRH: 22*(9) 

Also, he’ll be facing Bumrah at the death who he has absolutely bossed. 

DK vs Bumrah: 

Balls26
Runs50
Outs0

All of these factors, makes DK one of my top picks again. 

Captaincy suitability:Grand leagues. 

Rana & Tripathi’s consistent inconsistency: 

Both Rana & Tripathi are not known for their consistency and have been very hot & cold in IPL. 

Rana’s scores as opener: 68, 81, 0, 87, 0, 80

(Also averages only 21 against MI) 

You cannot drop Rana in small leagues after his last knock, but should definitely drop at least one between Tripathi & Rana in your grand league combinations.
