Today’s match will be a clash of the giants- Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab. Both the teams have a lot of potential to show and honestly, we can’t even pick a favourite from the two. The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most highly anticipated annual sporting events. Especially in a country where cricket is not just a sport but a religion, IPL has become a window to the crazy obsession this country has with cricket.

Match Preview

Both the teams playing one another hold a position in the top 4 and this match will certainly be one you can’t forget. Chennai may have won their first three matches, but the yellow brigade looked helpless in their last game and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will certainly try to bounce back against Punjab at home.

Dhoni made a change in his team against Mumbai and is likely to revert back to their original playing eleven, which was fruitful for Chennai in the first three games.

On the other hand, Punjab have also performed decently so far having won three of their four affairs. The skipper Ravichandran Ashwin is aware that Chennai is an extremely difficult team to beat at home. Ashwin didn't include opener and self-proclaimed 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle in the last game against Delhi Capitals as the opener was said to have been stiff. Looking at Chennai's average bowling attack, Gayle could be the perfect man to open the innings for KXIP.

Classic Fantasy Top 3 picks

The home team, Chennai Super Kings, has been on a roll in this tournament, barring the last match against Mumbai Indians. For your fantasy team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is obviously going to be a great pick. Captain cool and explosive batsman has a lot of potential under his belt and adept at manipulating the game in his favour. His experience of many years in the international cricketing scene has given him this ability and now, he seems to be channeling it in the IPL.

From the visiting contenders’ team- Kings XI Punjab, you should opt for self proclaimed “Universe Boss” Chris Gayle who has been one of IPL’s top players since the beginning. True that his performance is something of a hit or a miss, the unpredictability is what makes him a great pick. KXIP’s bowling side seems to be amiss this season, however, it would be wise to pick skipper Ravichandran Ashwin.

Daily Fantasy Top 6 picks

Both the teams playing today have some of the top players from the national and international cricketing scene. From the home team, opt for Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Deepak Chahar and Imran Tahir. There’s no explaining Captain Cool’s batting prowess and at the same time, the bowlers have been performing consistently as well. Both the bowlers are at the top of their game and have been taking several wickets in each match. These three players should give your team an edge over the competitors.

The visiting team, KXIP, however has a lot of batting fire power and you should definitely opt for two of their batsmen, namely- Chris Gayle, and Lokesh Rahul, both of whom have led their team to victory on more than one count. They have performed well over the past few games and we expect big things from them this time too. From the bowling side, pick captain of the team, Ravichandran Ashwin, who is a leading wicket taker.

We hope that the above mentioned players give you an edge over the competition when it comes to the IPL Fantasy League, 2019. Each of the players are rather promising in terms of their performance and we are eagerly looking forward to the outcome of the match.
