CSK vs MI Team Wicket-Keeper
Quinton de Kock (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Quinton has scored four half-centuries in the last five games and has been playing with a brilliant strike-rate. He is a genuine match-winner and is in wonderful form as well.

He is the 4th highest scorer of the tournament whereas Watto has been the 2nd best batsman of the side and has been scoring at an average of 31.67. Both of them have been the main batsmen of the side throughout the tournament.
Rohit Sharma (Price 10) and Suryakumar Yadav (Price 9) will be our batsmen from the Mumbai Indians. Rohit is struggling to find his rhythm at the moment and has just scored a couple of half-centuries in the tournament. He is still a world-class player though, whereas Surya has not fired in the last couple of games but has looked good in the tournament overall. Both of them are brilliant players.
CSK vs MI Team All-Rounders
Krunal Pandya (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounder from the Mumbai Indians. Pandya is picked over Pollard as Polly doesn’t bowl much and his batting is also not confirmed whereas Pandya will bowl his full quota of overs and has picked five wickets in the tournament.
Sam Curran (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from the Chennai Super Kings. Curran has been the best bowler of the side and has picked ten wickets in the tournament. He now opens the batting as well and is the most important player of the CSK side.
CSK vs MI Team Bowlers
Deepak Chahar (Price 8.5) will be our bowler from the Chennai Super Kings. Chahar is bowling really well at the moment and his 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.
Jasprit Bumrah (Price 9), Trent Boult (Price 8.5), and Rahul Chahar (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Mumbai Indians.
