CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on September 19, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips Mumbai vs Chennai on September 19 After nearly six months of uncertainty, IPL action comes our way as the Chennai Super Kings take on defending champions Mumbai Indians in the 2020 season opener on Saturday. It is fitting that MI and CSK face each other in the curtain-raiser, especially after the thrill-a-minute ride they had in the IPL 2019 final. Both of them are the most successful teams in the competition, with as many as seven IPL trophies between them. However, things haven't been ideal heading into this edition. Apart from the now-common sight of having no crowds in a bio-bubble, the teams had to work hard to get back to their best despite facing a few glitches on the way. In perhaps the greatest rivalry in the IPL, Mumbai Indians have the upper hand with 18 wins, compared to CSK's 12. With a very well-balanced squad, the Mumbai Indians are slight favourites heading into this game. However, you can never write off MS Dhoni and co, especially at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium where spin is expected to play a massive part. Best economical pick – In the absence of Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu is expected to play the anchor role by batting at either No. 3 or No. 4. In both positions, he can be expected to notch up healthy scores regularly. Rayudu had a poor IPL last time around, but with all the players coming back from a very long break and two T20 World Cups on the horizon, he will be keen on giving the selectors something to think about. Top captains & vice captains – De Kock is on the back of an excellent IPL 2019, and has proven to be a revelation in the powerplay for MI. The southpaw can be expected to continue from where he left off last year, and is certain to bag a decent amount of fantasy points in the IPL opener. Kieron Pollard seemed to be in ominous form in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League, where he took the Trinbago Knight Riders to the title undefeated. Pollard has won many a game for MI over the past few years in the IPL, and his ability to take on the spinners coupled with the unmatched all-round value that he brings to the side make him an excellent prospect. Smart pick – Rohit Sharma has been in record-breaking form in all three formats for the country over the past year, although he hasn't quite had the same impact on the IPL. Irrespective of that, Rohit is almost certain to register huge fantasy points in IPL. Cautious Pick – Ruturaj Gaikwad will not be available for selection for the team's opening game, the IPL 2020 tournament opener against Mumbai Indians on September 19. Gaikwad is yet to clear the two mandatory Covid-19 tests put in place by the IPL for him to re-join the squad. My XI – Quinton De Kock (Captain), Kieron Pollard (Vice-Captain), Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya

CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Australia on September 13, CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips England vs Australia on September 13 The Aussies were in fine form in the first ODI where Josh Hazlewood turned up a virtuoso performance with the new ball. With Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh also finding form with the bat, the Australians look well-equipped ahead of this game. The visitors have received a massive boost after Steve Smith was cleared to play the second ODI. Despite Smith's arrival, Australia have their hands full against Morgan and co, who will be itching to preserve their unbeaten record in home series this summer. With the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Mark Wood slowly getting back to their best, England will be hoping for a series-leveling win on Sunday. Both teams look evenly matched on paper, although one might fancy an England win given the superior balance in their squad. With the series on the line, one can expect both teams to come out firing on all cylinders in what should be a thrilling encounter. Best economical pick – Josh Hazlewood picked up 9 wickets in 5 ODIs this year including an excellent 3-wicket haul in the last game. Top captains & vice captains – Aaron Finch scored only 16 runs in the 1st ODI before being dismissed by Mark Wood, and with his team already 1-0 up in the 3-match series, he will have the freedom to play his natural game right from the outset. FInch is one of the best limited-overs batsmen in the world and he looked in good touch in the T20Is, registering scores of 46, 40 and 39. Finch is primed to score big soon, and he will be key to Australia's hopes in the 2nd ODI. Joe Root hasn't had a great run post the resumption of international cricket, but he has showed signs of finding form in the domestic circuit recently. He registered a couple of fifties for Yorkshire ahead of this ODI series, but scored only 1 run before being dismissed by Hazlewood in the 7th over in the 1st ODI. With England's backs up against the wall in this game, they will turn to their Test captain to produce the goods for the side. Root is a quality player, and can't be counted out on the basis of one failure. Smart pick – Glenn Maxwell played a brilliant knock in the last game where he scored 77 off 59 balls and can chip in with the ball too. Cautious Pick – After suffering a blow to the head while batting in the lead-up to the 1st ODI, Steve Smith was ruled out of the game as a precautionary measure. However, the former Australian captain has since passed his concussion tests. But Australia might not take a chance to play him in the second ODI as the team played the first match did well. My XI – Aaron Finch (Captain), Joe Root (Vice-Captain), Glenn Maxwell, Josh Hazlewood, David Warner, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, Sam Billings, Jason Roy

Critical Updates
  • Ishant Sharma
    Playing XI : Definitely
     
    Analysis : The Indian Test spearhead is expected to pip the other two to the role given his success in IPL 2019, which means that DC's first-choice XI this year might consist of only three overseas players.
  • Kagiso Rabada
    Playing XI : Definitely
     
    Analysis : Kagiso Rabada was arguably Delhi Capital's best player in the IPL last season, and again all eyes will be on him this season as well. Rabada picked up 25 wickets from just 12 games at a brilliant average of 14.72 and an amazing strike rate of 11 in the 2019 edition of the IPL. If he continues his fine form from last season, there is a good chance that Delhi Capitals could make it to the IPL playoffs and possibly beyond.

    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : Ruturaj Gaikwad will not be available for selection for the team's opening game, the IPL 2020 tournament opener against Mumbai Indians on September 19. Gaikwad is yet to clear the two mandatory Covid-19 tests put in place by the IPL for him to re-join the squad.
  • Sean Abbott
    Playing XI : May be
     
    Analysis : Australian bowling all-rounder Sean Abbott picked up 20 wickets in the last Big Bash and comes into this series in good form. He is pretty useful with the bat as well and can do well lower down the order.
