On the Saturday of the super weekend of the ongoing 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the first match will be played between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Pune. While RCB defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) in their last game, CSK has lost 2 out of their last three matches despite having great momentum in the initial stage of the tournament. The Virat Kohli led team needs to win 5 out of their remaining 6 games in order to reach the playoffs. There is no doubt about the fact that both the teams do have proven match-winners who can single-handedly take the game away from any opposition. Let us have a look at Players to watch out for fantasy sites for CSK vs RCB .
1) Virat Kohli
In the game against KKR, it was like just another of those days when Virat Kohli tried his best in the IPL but received no support from the other end. Coming in to bat at No. 3 in the ninth over, Kohli scored 68* (44) with the help of five fours and three sixes. He played an instrumental role in his team posting a handsome total. His team needs to give apt support to Kohli if RCB wants to qualify for the playoffs. Till now he has scored 349 runs at a decent strike rate of 139 in just eight innings.
2) AB de Villiers
One of the two pillars on which the RCB building standing so far in the IPL is AB De Villiers, the maverick South African batsman has been on and off in this season but has played the major role in the two wins RCB achieved so far. ABD was ruled out owing to viral fever, he missed out in two matches. Now with the critical stage of the tournament coming closer, his presence is a must for RCB.
3) Ambati Rayudu
Ambati Rayudu has been consistent for CSK this year. Rayudu till now has scored 391 runs at an unbelievable strike rate of 154. In just nine innings, he has smacked 33 fours and 20 sixes. In this season, Rayudu has also recorded his highest individual IPL score of 82. Unfortunately, he has been run out in three of the matches. RCB will have to be careful with this man-in-form.
4) MS Dhoni
Playing for Pune in the last season, MS Dhoni has scored 290 runs in 16 matches at an abysmal strike rate of 116. The season was such a failure for him as a batsman and with his hitting capability dwindling, Dhoni show was seemingly over. This year, he has revived and suddenly has turned around the clock. MSD is batting like he was playing in 2006. So far in the season, he has already hit more sixes than he hit in the last whole season. This season his strike rate is above 170.
5) Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina is continuing his bad form since many matches. He is one of the highest scorrer in IPL. Thats why he is named as Mr.IPL. His comeback will be real strong. He is very good hitter of the ball. He is expected to play well in todays encounter with RCB. Dont miss Raina in Fantasy Leagues today.
