Smart Picks for Chepauk vs Kovai Match
After failing in the first two matches, Sai Sudharsan has responded in fine fashion by scoring 56* and 27 in his last two outings. Given his ability to anchor the innings, he will remain a key batter in the middle order for Kovai.
Balu Surya has picked a wicket in all three games this season, including best figures of 3 for 14 against Dindigul last week. He also gave bonus fantasy points for being economical in the last match against Trichy.
With scores of 37, 46, 64, and 15 in this edition, J Suresh Kumar has become a hot pick in fantasy leagues. He has also been adding points through his glove work.
Uthirasamy Sasidev has been getting all the runs for Chepauk this season. In three innings he has scored 138 runs at 46.
N Jagadeesan is yet to fire in this edition. That said, he has a wealth of experience playing at the domestic level and it is only a matter of time before he starts turning things around with both bat and gloves.
Similarly, Rajagopal Sathish too has been a veteran in the Tamil Nadu circuit. His all-round ability makes him a dark horse in online fantasy cricket.
Both teams will be meeting for the first time in the tournament. Chepauk finally managed to register a win after losing their first two matches. On the other hand, Kovai too dropped their first two games, but have won the last two.
