IPL Final – MI vs CSK – FCN Preview

Fantasy Guide

Top 4 fantasy picks – Mumbai Indians

Quinton de Kock –  If ever there was a time for the South African excitement machine to step up, it’s in tomorrow’s final. De Kock has scored four 50+ scores for Mumbai this season at the top of the order.

Lasith Malinga – The IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker loves the big stage, he’s already shown what he’s capable of against this CSK outfit where he picked up 4/37 in Chennai.

Suryakumar Yadav – Scores of 46* & 71* leading into this year’s IPL final sees Suryakumar Yadav enter the big dance in brilliant form. A relatively-consistent contributor this season, Yadav has saved his very-best for the playoffs.

Hardik Pandya – The man is an absolute freak of nature! He’s been compared to both Gayle and Russell, and rightfully so given his electric performances with the willow throughout IPL 12. Hardik is striking at 193 this season and continues to destroy opposition teams.

Top 4 fantasy picks – Chennai Super Kings

Imran Tahir – The second highest wicket-taker in IPL 12 and the most economical inside the top 5, Tahir is a cagey-customer. A nightmare to score against and deceptively clever, the Proteas veteran will play another vital role for CSK in the final.

MS Dhoni – The ability to finish off games in either a run chase or setting a total is MS Dhoni’s speciality, and his glove-work behind the stumps to the spinners is something to behold. Dhoni is a handful of genuine match-winners playing in tomorrow’s final.

Shane Watson – Having had a rather-forgettable campaign, Shane Watson is someone that can’t be discounted. A century in last year’s IPL final handed CSK their third title, and his half century in the second qualifier has given him some much-needed confidence.

Harbhajan Singh – CSK are going to need wickets to win the final, and that’s where Harbhajan comes into the equation. India’s veteran-spinner has had another successful season in the IPL taking 16 wickets from his 10 matches, pencil him in for a couple more tomorrow as well.
