Section 7: Player performance at the venue: 

Since DC is playing their first game at Chennai this season, will be discussing their numbers only. Also, MI’s numbers will be misleading due to recency bias. 

DC bowlers at Chepauk: 

Ashwin: (very good in second) 

1st: 18I, 71O, 18W, 23.7 SR 

2nd: 24I, 91.3O, 33W, 16.6 SR 

(In the current lineup, only Ashwin has played at Chepauk) 

DC batsmen at Chepauk (overall)

Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Top picks: 

Suryakumar Yadav: Is in the form of his life right now, and is by far the safest choice in small leagues the way he is batting right now. Has very good numbers at Chepauk too. 

Surya in his last four innings vs DC has two fifties. 

Captaincy suitability: Small leagues & grand leagues both. 

Rohit Sharma: Has got starts in every game but has not converted those starts into a big knock. More of a safe pick for small leagues. 

The last time he faced DC he scored a match winning 68(51) in the IPL finals. 

Bumrah & Boult: There are not many sure shot captaincy picks in the batting section in this game, so better to go with the most reliable options in the bowling section. 

Both Boult & Bumrah have amazing numbers against DC recently, and have absolutely dominated them. 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both. 

Interesting case of Dhawan vs MI: Dhawan either scores big against MI, or he goes very cheaply (or a duck) Nothing in between. 

His last 6 innings vs MI: 15(13), 0(2), 0(2), 69(52), 35(22), 43(36)

So in your GL teams, make him captain in few teams and completely drop him in few. 

Ashwin Anna’s return at Chepauk: Ashwin has just one wicket in IPL 2021 so far, but not to forget, he was playing at Wankhede where spinners usually struggle. Now he is back at his den, Chepauk. 

Ashwin has the most wickets at Chepauk in IPL:
