SRH would still be in recovery mode after what Chris Gayle did to them the last time they took the field. Rashid Khan, the world’s best T20 bowler was piped to outfox the Universe Boss, but all he could do was stand in the middle of pitch and wonder what him him.
Chris Gayle smacked those leg spinners, top spinners and googlies right out of his sight, with utter disdain.
CSK’s Shane Watson replicated what Gayle did a day before him, taking the RR bowlers to the cleaners with some exquisite shot making.
So, while CSK should be on a high from yet another game where one of their superstars delivered, SRH would be reeling from that Gayle storm.
For CSK the biggest challenge would be how to get multiple players of theirs to step up during the game and take the franchise over the line. Whereas, for SRH the biggest challenge would be to put the defeat of the last game behind them and just consider themselves unlucky to have found Chris Gayle on his day.
Let’s get to business now!
IPL Fantasy League(Fantasy Tips for SRH vs CSK)
Transfer out: Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Shahbaz Nadeem
Transfer in: Bhuvi, Rashid Khan, Deepak Chahar
Now, I already have Shikhar Dhawan, Siddharth Kaul and Shane Watson in my side for this game.
We have two of the best death bowlers in the IPL on display tonight, as Dwayne Bravo and Bhuvneshwar would feature today.
I have bene guilty of ignoring Bhuvi through the initial part of the tournament but he has taken 5 wickets in the three games that he has played for SRH and has looked lethal with that knuckle ball of his.
With SRH set to play thrice in 6 games, I would like to bring him in for sure as he could easily help himself to 250 points before you have to transfer him out.
Get him in!
Now, the next spot in contention would be that of either Raina, Bravo or Rashid Khan.
I would rate Rashid higher than the other two at this point as he will feature thrice in 6 games and could help himself to 250 points as well.
Raina and Bravo can be good buys for this game as the duo did look in good touch in the last game.
Bravo though should be brought in only if CSK bowl first, as bowling is his strong suit and he can take full toll of it only by bowling those 4 confirmed overs at the death.
Suresh Raina looked in ominous form in the last game but ultimately succumbed to the leggie Shreyas Gopal.
My final verdict would be that the safe option is Rashid Khan considering the fact that the is guaranteed 12 overs over 3 games before you have to transfer him out.
If you are feeling a little adventurous, get in Bravo if CSK bowl first and Raina if CSK bat first.
For the uncapped player, I’ll get in Deepak Chahar into my side. The other available option is Deepak Hooda, but he hasn’t really come to the party this year and thus Chahar, who is guaranteed to bowl at least 3 overs, is a better option.

Fandromeda(Fantasy Tips for SRH vs CSK)
Transfer out: Chris Morris, Virat Kohli
Transfer in: Suresh Raina, Bhuvi
Now, I already have Shikhar Dhawan, Rashid Khan and Shane Watson in my side for this game.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Suresh Raina would the one’s I’ll be bringing in for this game.
Reasons for getting in Bhuvi are already mentioned in the IPL Fantasy league section. I get in Raina ahead of Bravo, one because my team combination forces me to go in for a batsman and two because Raina looked in ominous touch in the last game.
I won’t be bringing in any other players into my team from this game.
