On the Sunday 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 Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Pune. While SRH has already qualified for the IPL 2018 playoffs, CSK needs to win at least one of the remaining three games in order to qualify for the playoffs and if they manage to win at least two games they will reach the playoffs at one of the two oppositions. The last time these two locked horns with each other, CSK thrashed the opposition by a handsome margin. Currently, both are standing at the top of the table and there is no doubt about the fact that both the teams do have proven match-winners in their respective squads who can single-handedly take the game away from any opposition. Let us have a look at the Players to watch out for fantasy sites for CSK vs SRH.
1) MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni has found his 10-year old form. He is striking the ball cleanly than ever and is also appearing physically fitter than ever. In the late stages for Chennai, he has been critical and he is hitting the ball very hard. So far in the 2018 season, Dhoni has scored 393 runs in the 11 matches with an impressive strike rate of 164. He has hit 28 sixes so far to go along 20 fours. This is the highest number of sixes MSD has smacked in a single season.
2) Suresh Raina
In the last game against RR, coming in to bat at No. 3 in the third over, Suresh Raina looked in the affirmative from the word go. He played his shots and did not let the early wicket have any effect on the team. Raina scored his 34th IPL half-century, 52 (35), with the help of six fours and a six. In the season so far he has amassed 313 runs in 10 games at a strike rate of 136. He has now become the only batsman in the history of IPL to score more than 300 runs in all the season of IPL.
3) Shikhar Dhawan
Opening the innings alongside Hales, ‘Man of the Match’ Shikhar Dhawan played an innings full of responsibility. His nuances saw him shifting gears between the remaining batsmen patient, nudging the ball for a single/double and dominating the opposition bowlers. He ended up scoring his 30th IPL half-century 92 (50) with the help of nine fours and four sixes. In the season so far he has amassed 298 runs in 10 games at a strike rate of 138.
4) Rashid Khan
Afghani leg-spinner Rashid Khan started off the IPL in a quiet fashion. In the game against DD, from picking up wickets of two crucial batsmen to bowling at a spectacular economy rate, Rashid Khan delivered another game-changing performance. He finished the game with the bowling figures of 4-0-23-2. In the season so far he has picked 13 scalps in 11 games.
