Cricket Fantasy Tips and Picks Dream11 CSK VS RR
Jose Butler is our pick for wicket keeping slot, eventhough Dhoni is the finisher and reliable, Butlers opening slot and form means he can score big in T20 cricket. Suresh Raina and Ambai Rayudu are the other two picks from CSK batting line up. Sanju Samson is in tremondous form and his class will overcome any pitch and bowling attack. The shots he played in the previous match shows that he can find gaps easily and hit boundaries at will. We will choose Steven Smith, he is due for a big score.
Jadeja and Gowtham will be in all rounder slot along with Bravo. Jofra Archer and Imran Tahir will be part of the bowling combination along with Harbhajan singh. The spin bowers will be key in this match, especially Jadeja. If Duplesis is in the final playing XI, we suggest to include him in the fantasy team in place of Goutham.
