Fantasy Cricket Tips For IPL 2022: The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 extravaganza is here. It had already been given its first major news when, two days out from the tournament opener between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders, MS Dhoni stepped down as CSK’s captain handing over the reins to all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, an in-form cricketer who’s been with the franchise since 2012.
KKR, too, have a new captain this season. After they didn’t buy back Eoin Morgan, the man who led them to the final last season, the two-time champions roped in Shreyas Iyer, the former Delhi Capitals skipper, for 12.25 crore and named him their new point man. Both the teams also have retained or bought back some of their players from last season while most of the squad is fresh.
Fantasy cricket tips for IPL 2022:
Deepak Chahar is ruled out for more than half of the tournament with a quadriceps injury, and all-rounder Moeen Ali will miss the first game against KKR having arrived only on the morning of March 24 and will need to undergo a mandatory three-day quarantine. Dwaine Pretorius is also a late arrival from South Africa.
KKR will not have the services of Aaron Finch, the replacement opener for Alex Hales, until 6th April as he’s leading Australia in white-ball games in Pakistan. Pat Cummins is also unavailable as he’s currently playing the third Test in Lahore.
Fantasy Cricket Tips For IPL 2022: Expected playing XIs
CSK: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (C), Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Chris Jordan/Maheesh Theekshana, Adam Milne
KKR: Venkatesh Iyer, Sam Billings, Shreyas Iyer (C), Nitish Rana, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Shivam Mavi, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Runs and more runs are predicted at the Wankhede, especially at the start of the tournament. Pacers generally fare much better than spinners at this venue.
Fantasy cricket tips for IPL 2022: Jadeja and Russell are the safest options for captaincy in your fantasy eleven as both are expected to get promotions in the batting order and bowl a minimum of 2 overs, probably even more. Another solid safe captaincy alternative is all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer who is terrific form.
MS Dhoni is unlikely to get many balls to face, which makes Sheldon Jackson or Sam Billings the preferred options in your fantasy eleven. Chakravarthy has a strong match-up against CSK batters, the mystery spinner could have an impact with the ball in this game. Rana and Sunil Narine can be seen bowling to left-hander Conway.
CSK-KKR best XI on Dream XI:
Wicket-keeper: Sam Billings
Batsmen: Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Ruturaj Gaikwad
All-rounder: Andre Russell (C), Ravindra Jadeja, Venkatesh Iyer (vc), Sunil Narine
Bowlers: Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, Tim Southee
