5 Must-Have Players in the Squad

BLR vs CSK Team Wicket-Keeper
AB de Villiers (Price 10) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. AB is a T20 superstar and he has been absolutely brilliant for his side this season. He has scored 285 runs at an average of 57 this season and he just cannot be dropped from the team.
BLR vs CSK Team Batsmen
Virat Kohli (Price 10.5) and Devdutt Padikkal (Price 9) will be our batsmen from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kohli has been in a brilliant touch and his passion towards the side is un-matchable. He has scored 365 runs at an average of 60.83 whereas Padikkal has played some decent innings in the tournament with three half-centuries under his belt as well. Both of them are really important batsmen of this side.
Faf du Plessis (Price 10) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (Price 8) will be our batsmen from the Chennai Super Kings. The batting of CSK has struggled in the tournament but Faf has been their best batsman by far. He has scored 376 runs at an average of 41.78 and is in the list of top-5 highest run-scorers whereas Gaikwad is a young talent and was brilliant in the last Vijay Hazare trophy as an opener, he will only get better. Both of them are good players.
BLR vs CSK Team All-Rounders
Chris Morris (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounder from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Morris has been on fire this season and has picked 9 wickets in just 5 games in the tournament so far. He can again be the game-changer for the side.
Sam Curran (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounder from the Chennai Super Kings. Curran has emerged as the best player of the side this season. He has picked ten wickets this season and has been really good in his batting as well. Sam is the un-droppable option from Chennai.
BLR vs CSK Team Bowlers
Yuzvendra Chahal (Price 9), Mohammad Siraj (Price 8), and Isuru Udana (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chahal is the best bowler of the side and has picked 15 wickets in the tournament so far whereas Siraj broke many records in the last game and bowled a dream spell. Udana, on the other hand, is a death-overs bowler and has picked seven wickets in the tournament. All three of them are going to play an important role in this game as well.
Deepak Chahar (Price 8.5) will be our bowler from the Chennai Super Kings. Chahar’s powerplay bowling is one of the best in the tournament. He has picked 10 wickets till now and is bowling with a great economy as well.
