Fantasy Tips of The Day
Every time T Natarajan bowled against Chennai, he bagged a two-for, generating an average of 50 points per game. He has dismissed both Ruturaj Gaikwad and MS Dhoni twice.
Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway have already snapped up bonus points for collectively smashing four fifties and two thirties in this edition. Moreover, when the duo last faced Hyderabad, they stitched an opening partnership of 182.
Shivam Dube accumulated 241 runs at 40 in his last 10 competitive T20s and provided bonus points for hammering 28 boundaries.
Despite going wicketless, Washington Sundar could end up making an impact at Chepauk. Returning to his home ground and that he will bowl into the left-handers is likely to reap rewards for fantasy players.
Abhishek Sharma has collected 163 at 41 against Chennai. Given the spinner-friendly conditions, he could be asked to roll his arm over.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has bagged 11 wickets versus Chennai – of which nine have come bowling second.
Marco Jansen (10 wickets) – Hyderabad’s joint-leading wicket-taker for the season– featured in the Best11 for five consecutive professional T20s.
In his last four games, Tushar Deshpande took as many as nine wickets: three two-fors and a three-for.
In addition to smashing the most runs (424 at 61) against Hyderabad, MS Dhoni has hit the most sixes (25) by a Chennai player.
Spinners took 51% of the wickets in the last three games at the venue.
