The 44th match of IPL 2020 will feature Chennai Super Kings taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore today October 25, 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai.
Usually seen at the top of the points table, CSK today sit at the opposite side of the spectrum at the bottom with 6 points. RCB on the hand, are third with 14 points. Let's take a look at the Fantasy picks, predictions, and probable XI for this game.
Fantasy League Picks
Two teams packed with talent. These players can win matches and help you win as well in your Fantasy Cricket League.
Washinton Sundar can prove to be a bump in any batsman's path. With 6 wickets to his name, this right-arm off-spinner has an economy rate of 5.60 in 10 matches. He has also scored 70 runs this season at a strike rate of 112.
Captain and Vice-Captain
"Run-machine" Virat Kohli has found his form again after a slow start in this season. He is the 6th highest run-scorer of IPL 2020 so far with 365 runs in 10 matches at a strike rate of 126. If he gets going, he can very well do justice to the "run-machine" tag inferred upon him and score some big runs. Speaking of scoring big, Faf du Plessis has been doing it consistently for CSK. He has scored 376 runs in 11 matches of this season at a strike rate of 138.
AB de Villiers as usual as been impressive. He is one batsman RCB can depend on if the situation gets dicey. He has a strike rate of 190 in 11 matches and holds the capability of hitting the ball in every direction.
Even if Isuru Udana has the ability to take crucial wickets, he does seem to concede a lot of runs. So far in this season, he has 7 wickets in 8 matches at an economy rate of 9.91.
RCB will depend a lot on Yuzvendra Chahal's spin and Chris Morris' fast-medium bowling. Deepak Chahar on the other hand will play a crucial role in breaking RCB's power-packed batting line-up.
