Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

Gaikwad & Faf (chasing): Both Faf & Gaikwad will be very popular choices in small leagues. And if chasing, will be great captaincy choices once again: 

Gaikwad vs KKR: 

Innings 3
Runs176
Average 58.67
501
HS64

Gaikwad at Dubai: 

Innings 7
Runs325
Average 65
SR130
504
HS88*

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Moeen Ali: His fantasy value has definitely decreased after Uthappa’s promotion at 3, but still adds a lot of value with his allround abilities against a LHB dominated side. Although, did not bowl a single delivery in the last CSK-KKR game, but you can expect him to bowl few overs today. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Sunil Narine: Either he does everything, or does nothing, which we discussed in the last game as well. Because CSK’s majority batsmen struggle against him (except Rutu & Moeen), especially, the lower middle order of Rayudu, Dhoni & Jadeja (all 3 has a SR of below 100 against him), KKR has used him at the back end of the innings. He bowled the 20th over in the last CSK-KKR game where he picked two wickets & also bowled the 19th over last season against them. 

Because KKR are using him wisely & adds a bit of batting value as well, could be a good captaincy choice in this game. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Other choices: 

Thakur & Bravo (bowling first): Mini GL & GL. 

Jadeja (batting first): Mini GL & GL.
