In the 34the match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 Delhi Capitals (DC) will be facing the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Sharjah on Saturday. The second game on a double-header features a solid DC team, who currently stands at the second position at the points table. While their batsmen have been doing well, it has been their bowling attack and especially the duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje that have led them to the top.
However, they will need the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw to contribute more, especially with the race for the top four spots intensifying with each passing game. On the other hand, CSK has got some much-needed impetus with the change in their batting approach. With the duo of Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson also finding form against SRH, CSK will be bullish about their chances in this fixture. A
The reverse fixture between the two teams in IPL 2020 saw DC beat CSK by a huge margin of 44 runs in Dubai. However, CSK holds the edge in the overall head-to-head scenario with fourteen wins compared to Delhi’s seven. Let us take you all to the Probable Fantasy XI you can create with the following tips:-
With none of the players having much of a practice, MS Dhoni seems to be a better pick as he has been known for making a strong comeback and he will be much more effective on slow pitches this season. However, for DC, Alex Carey will be keeping the wickets as he is known for playing match-winning knocks, but in order to maintain the balance of the IPL Fantasy XI, Dhoni seems the better pick.
Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayduu, and Faf du Plessis have always been the prime contenders for the fantasy cricket. Even, Ajinkya Rahane can also be added in fantasy cricket and that will depend on the balance of the squad. Apart from them, there are some useful batsmen in the line-ups as well, like Prithvi Shaw, and Rituraj Gaikwad (if he plays).
There are some really reliable all-rounders in both the teams but citing the pitch in Sharjah, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, DJ Bravo, and Marcus Stoinis seems to be the perfect fit. Apart from them, the good all-rounder for IPL fantasy cricket is Axar Patel.
Both the teams don’t have decent bowling line-ups but they have managed to do a decent job. Bowlers like Kagiso Rabada, Ancrich Nortje, R Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, and Piyush Chawla become the obvious choices for the IPL Fantasy XI on the sticky track of Sharjah. Apart from them, some crucial bowlers can be like, Karn Sharma and Deepak Chahar.
