Match Prediction & Tips
Match Prediction: Dehli Capitals to win at 8/11*
The Dehli Capitals performed really well last year and have bought well in the auction. They are our team to watch this year and we are expecting big things from them.
They are the favourites for this match and after winning both the head to head matches last year will be looking to get off to a winning start.
- Pick 1: Sam Curran over 0.5 wickets 4/5
Currans record reads 23 matches, 23 wickets. He’s a player who has improved over the last 12 months and will be up against his brother who has just signed for Dehli.
- Pick 2: Ngidi top CSK bowler 3/1
Ngidi could be an important player for CSK this year. He has an excellent record of taking wickets in the IPL and when he is on it he’s an excellent wicket taker.
Dream 11 Selections
Captain: Rishabh PantThe new captain will have a point to prove. His recent T20 form is excellent and he’s our selection for the Dream 11 captains role.
Vice Captain: Marcus StoinisStonis is a phenomenal IPL player. We are expecting him to bat further up the order for the Capitals again this year, more as a batsman who bowls a little, rather than a bowler who bats a little. Dream 11 players to watch:
- Sam Curran
- Robin Uthappa
- du Plessis
- Kagiso Rabada
- Chris Woakes
