FANTASY TIPS:
In Wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, MS Dhoni will be the safe option, you pick anyone of them but Parthiv Patel is the safest option bcause he open the innings and get more chance to score for his team and gain points for you.

MS Dhoni will play at middle batting order but you can try him in grand league as less users pick him due to his batting order.


Make balance team because both the teams are attacking and most promising in the IPL format. But as per trust value, users have more faith in Chennai Super Kings due to their outstanding winning performance in every season of the IPL.
