CSK vs RCB Match 1 Fantasy Team

The Carnival Of IPL starts from 23rd March 2019. The First Game is scheduled between RCB and CSK.  Both the teams are lead by two legendary captains in Virat Kohli and MSD. However, being the first game a lot of people are confused about what the right combination should be for the first game. Apps Like Dream 11 have changed the meaning of fantasy cricket for Indians.  So, what should be the right combination for today’s game?

It Is the first game choosing the right combination could be tricky but we will do the best to help you. The right prediction for today should be:

Pitch Report:  The pitch supports spinners more than the fast bowlers. Therefore, the spinners should benefit more from this pitch.

Batsman: Both CSK and RCB are a very decent team and might be considered title contenders but the irony is that both the teams have weak bowling line ups. Therefore expect a lot of runs. A top heavy squad could prove beneficial. Our suggestion would be to induct 5 batsmen.

Our Suggestions:

  1. Virat Kohli ©: Probably the safest choice to be the captain. He is certain to make runs and not choosing him would be criminal.

  2. AB De Villiers: The same as Virat Kohli, not choosing him= Criminal.

  3. Shane Watson:  Has come out of great form from PSL.  Might even bowl 1 or two overs. Certain to open and the last time he played in the IPL, he won the game single-handedly.

  4. Ambati Rayudu: Most Probable opening partner of Shane Watson. Also was in great form while opening last season and found a new version of his game.

  5. S Heitmeyer: Our Wild card Inclusion. There have been a few doubts that whether he would play or not but in case he plays a quickfire 20-30 can be expected from him which would be great to achieve from your 5th batsman.

Wicket Keeper: When a wicketkeeping legend MS Dhoni is present in one of the two teams who does you choose as your wicket keeper? Any Doubts? Well Yes. The answer is clear. Chose Parthiv Patel as your Wicketkeeper. Why?


  1. He will open if he plays.

  2. Dhoni Will come as number 5 or number 6 and being a batting wicket don't expect him to get more than 5 overs to play unless and until CSK suffer a batting collapse.

This is a pure gamble but this is one worth taking for sure.

All Rounders: RCB is known for its tricky decision and Marcus stoinis has not joined the team yet. Therefore its not clear whether RCB will play Moeen Ali Or Colin De Grandhomme. Therefore we will go for two all rounders:

  1. Ravindra Jadeja: A Sure short selection in the team also might get some purchase and hence a few wickets.

  2. Shivam Dube: A comparatively unknown identity but anyone who saw him in the domestic circuit must be aware of his big hitting abilities. Therefore can be chosen as another wild card.

Bowlers: The most difficult selection. Our Choices:

  1. Imran Tahir

  2. Deepak Chahar

  3. Y Chahal
