IPL 2018: Fantasy Cricket Tips for CSK vs RCB, May 05, 35th IPL Match

Perhaps two of the most popular teams will be facing each other on 5th May at Pune. One is being captained by MS Dhoni, better known as Captain Cool, while the other has debonair Virat Kohli at the helm. It will be a cracker of a match, but make sure you select your fantasy cricket team based on player’s performance.

Here are some tips for the CSK and RCB game that will help your fantasy cricket game:

  • Imagine a fantasy cricket team with MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli as the captain and vice captain. If both players perform well, you will rake in bucket loads of points

  • Dhoni is one the best closers in the short format of the game, so there is no question of ignoring him. He is also a great wicketkeeper and this makes him an asset

  • Shane Watson is going great guns and he will be an invaluable player for your team

  • Don’t disregard Shardul Thakur, who can play when it matters the most. He is a good bowler and has the ability to catch off his bowling

  • Dwayne Bravo and Suresh Raina are other batsmen from CSK that you may want to include in your playing XI

  • Virat Kohli’s boys are not winning matches at IPL 2018. However, there are players who can perform and ensure your fantasy cricket team earns valuable points

  • Moeen Ali, Brendon McCullum, Chris Woakes, and AB de Villiers are players from RCB besides Virat Kohli who can transform the game if they get going

  • It makes great sense to add Brendon McCullum and Manan Vohra as your openers

  • Dwayne Bravo should be your all-rounder

  • This makes it easy to then to include the likes of Kulwant Khejorliya, Mandeep Singh and Jos Buttler
