DDD vs CSG Dream11 Prediction
Chepauk Super Gillies have changed their wicket-keepers around, whereas Dindigul have stuck consistently with the supremely in-form Narayan Jagadeesan. He would have been the best pick, regardless of the Gillies’ situation.
Hari Nishanth has been an excellent partner with Jagadeesan and will be key again in this game alongside him. For the Gillies, Hari Gopinath has been their top man with the bat. Uthirasamy Sasidev has hit some decent form of late, meanwhile, and is good value too at 8.5 credits.
Vijay Shankar made exactly the impression expected of him in the Gillies final group game and, though he comes at a cost, he is one of the key players in this fixture. The same can be said of Ravichandran Ashwin for Dindigul. Murugan Ashwin and S Harish Kumar are both options for Chepauk too, with the latter in particularly good form. Picking all four is expensive, and leaves no space for Ramalingam Rohit, however. If you want to save some credits, Rohit for Murugan Ashwin might be the swap you need. Alternatively, Shankar has only played once and did not get a score with the bat – at ten credits, perhaps is lack of match fitness could be a reason to look elsewhere.
If you have swapped Rohit in for Murugan Ashwin, there is enough for one 8.5-credit bowler and two at eight credits. M Siddharth and Jagatheesan Kaushik are in the latter category and represent good value. R Alexander is 8.5 credits, meanwhile, as is M Mohammed for the Dragons. If you have managed to keep more in reserve, the leading bowlers – at nine credits apiece – are G Periyaswamy and M Silambarasan.
With plenty of all-rounders and in-form batsmen to choose from, there is lots of choice when it comes to captain and vice-captain. S Harish Kumar has impressed with bat and ball more consistently than the two Ashwins, perhaps. Narayan Jagadeesan has been the tournament’s leading batsmen, meanwhile, and is hard to look past if you want a good bet on a big score. As he fell short last time out, however, perhaps vice-captain is a slightly safer bet.
