Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in Delhi on Saturday. CSK and MI are two of the most successful teams in Indian Premier League's history. The defending champions Mumbai Indians have won the IPL trophy a record five times while MS Dhoni-led CSK have bagged the title thrice. Both teams are packed with some of the biggest names in world cricket and known as the El Clasico of IPL, CSK vs MI promises to be a thrilling contest. The likes of Faf du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja, Kieron Pollard and Jasprit Bumrah will be in action on Saturday.
Here is a look at some of the top Fantasy picks from match number 27 of the IPL 2021 between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
Quiton de Kock (Credits 9.5):The South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman found his form in MI's previous fixture as he scored an unbeaten 70 against Rajasthan Royals.
With MS Dhoni not coming up the order to bat, De Kock should be your first-choice wicketkeeper in your fantasy team.
Faf du Plessis (Credits 10):The kind of form Faf du Plessis is in, he is a must have in any fantasy team. The South Africa batsman has scored three back-to-back half-centuries and you can earn a lot of points because apart from scoring big, he has been taking breathtaking in this year's IPL.
Ruturaj Gaikwad (Credits 8.5): The uncapped batsman has repaid the trust shown in him by CSK management. After struggling in the initial stages of the tournament, Gaikwad has found his form and has put on two back-to-back 100-plus partnerships with Faf du Plessis.
For just 8.5 credits, Gaikwad is a steal and if he manages to deliver a performance like he produced against RR, you will get some big points without spending too much.
Jasprit Bumrah (Credits 9):The death overs specialist has been extremely economical in this year's IPL. Bumrah has picked up five wickets but his economy rate so far in the tournament is less than six runs per over.
With short boundaries on offer for the batsmen in Delhi, Bumrah can prove to be a trump card and should feature in your fantasy team.
