Top Fantasy Predictions for CHE vs RAJ: Batters and Wicket-Keepers
Faf du Plessis
With 65 fantasy points in the last match, Faf was back at his best and delivered with the bat.
He has scored 36*, 0, 10, 67*, 34 & 41 in his last 6 T20 matches at Wankhede and thus can be a bankable player as he has given returns in maximum number of matches played here.
Last season, in one of the matches Faf had scored 72 in just 37 balls against Rajasthan and thus will be looking to perform in the same way in this fixture as well.
He has a Fantasy Gully rating of 8.9 which is a good enough number for him to be included in the fantasy team.
Jos Buttler has played 5 matches against Chennai in the Indian T20 league and in these 5 matches he has scored a total of 216 runs at a strike rate of 152 which includes 2 fifties and thus has given an average of 50+ fantasy points against Chennai.
Buttler has so far scored 14 & 40 fantasy points in his 2 matches which is quite decent.
Also, with Ben Stokes out now, Buttler can now be opening which is his natural position and thus you can expect more batting fantasy points from him as he will occupy the crease for a longer time.
As context, as an opener he averages 39 as opposed to batting at other positions wherein his average is 27 in the Indian T20 league.
A Player like him is what Rajasthan exactly needed as he can be a good finisher and can end up scoring quickfire 30 to 40 runs in no time and can end up giving at least 40 fantasy points.
He is in terrific form as in his last 4 T20 matches he has scores of 62, 2, 49* & 56* runs respectively.
Moreover, he has a good record playing at the Wankhede in the Indian T20 league as in his last 6 matches he has scores of 62, 7, 24, 38, 16 & 56 and thus has given fantasy points in every match barring just one.
The reason of him being more successful here is that a ground like Wankhede is very small and tailor made for him to hit sixes at will and Pacers bowl more overs here which is a strong point for David Miller.
Top Fantasy Predictions for CHE vs RAJ: Bowlers
Chetan Sakariya was impressive on his Indian T20 league debut against Punjab as he took 3/31 and ended up with 91 fantasy points which is quite impressive. However, in the next match he was wicketless and thus gave no fantasy points.
He has entered this season of the Indian T20 league on the back of a good performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in which he took 12 wickets in just 5 matches at an impressive economy of under 5 which accounted for an average of 60+ fantasy points per match.
Given that he is not valued that high in terms of credit, he can be accommodated in your fantasy team for a relatively less amount which can eventually help you include other big credit players.
He has given an average of 62 fantasy points in his last 10 T20 games which is a very good number.
Deepak Chahar has taken 2/18, 1/31, 2/33, 2/19 & 2/30 in his 5 matches against Rajasthan in the Indian T20 league and thus has assured at least 50 fantasy points in 4 out of these 5 matches.
He is looking in good rhythm as he is fresh from a 4-wicket haul against Punjab and thus gave 138 fantasy points which was the highest in that match.
Given that Wankhede does offer swing in the early powerplay overs, Deepak Chahar can be an interesting prospect at this venue.
Top Fantasy Predictions for CHE vs RAJ: All-Rounders
With 82 runs and a wicket so far in 2 matches, Moeen Ali has given 102 & 60 fantasy points, respectively.
Given that Moeen Ali is batting at number 3, he has a chance to face many deliveries and spend more time on the crease and thus can give very good returns with the bat.
Talking about his bowling, he did take 1 wicket in the last match which will increase his chances of bowling even more in the 2nd match.
Also, Wankhede has now become a good happy hunting ground for Moeen as in his 5 T20 matches here, he has scored 147 runs and taken 6 wickets and thus has given an average 65+ fantasy points in his 5 matches here which is a staggering number.
With 3 wickets and 38 runs scored in 2 matches, Morris has given 83 & 62 fantasy points respectively so far this season which is very good.
Morris has played 5 times against his former team Chennai in the Indian T20 league and in these matches, he has bowling figures of 1/36, 3/19, 1/47, 3/19 & 1/19 and thus has given guaranteed fantasy points with the ball.
Talking about his batting, he exactly showed that in the last match as he scored 36* in just 18 balls and proved that if he gets enough opportunities, he can be a great prospect with the bat as well and can score them quickly as out of the 36 runs the other night, 24 came just in sixes (4).
