CSK vs RR Must Picks for Dream11 Cricket

Ruturaj Gaikwad – The CSK skipper could be a vital cog in the wheel for CSK while batting at the top of the order. Considering his form in the current season so far, Gaikwad should be one of the must-picks while picking the fantasy team for CSK vs RR game.

Sanju Samson – The Rajasthan Royals captain played a crucial knock of 86 runs in the last game against Delhi Capitals; however, it went in vain as RR couldn’t chase down the target. Sanju is also one of the must-pick candidates while making a fantasy team for this game.

CSK vs RR Risky Captaincy Choices

MS Dhoni – The former CSK skipper and the legendary wicketkeeper-batter has shown some amazing quick cameos with the bat in the tournament. But he comes to bat lower down the order so picking him as a captain of the fantasy team could be a very risky move.

Yashasvi Jaiswal – The young RR opener has scored a century and a half-century with the bat in the tournament so far. But there’s a lack of consistency in Jaiswal’s batting; so, he might not be the right choice for the captaincy of the fantasy team.
