It doesn’t get bigger than this in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Mumbai Indians will be squaring off with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and it is unarguably one of the biggest games of this season.
Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai were off to a disappointing start against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their season opener. They lost the game by 8 wickets.
This is Chennai’s 3rd game in IPL 2023 and they will be hoping to continue their winning run. After a flip-up against Gujarat Titans (GT), the MS Dhoni led side bounced back in a strong fashion against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
In this article, we take a look at 5 must-have fantasy picks for today’s MI vs CSK game in IPL 2023:
1. Ruturaj Gaikwad (Chennai Super Kings)
Gaikwad’s inclusion in your fantasy team is a no-brainer. He is in red-hot form and is scoring runs for fun. He is presently the leading run-getter in IPL 2023 and has scored two back-to-back half-centuries in the first 2 games for CSK.
In 2 games so far, the Pune based batter has scored 149 runs in IPL 2023.
2. Tilak Verma (Mumbai Indians)
After impressing one and all in IPL 2022, Tilak Verma is grabbing the limelight in IPL 2023 as well. When MI were in a precarious situation in their previous game against RCB, Verma bailed them out of it through a mature knock of 84* runs in just 46 balls.
Last year against CSK, Tilak Verma had scored 34* runs and is a must-have player in your fantasy team.
3. Jofra Archer (Mumbai Indians)
Mumbai Indians’ quick bowler Jofra Archer is one of the fastest bowlers of modern-day cricket. His ability to extract bounce from any surface makes him one of the deadliest bowlers presently.
He needs to be on your fantasy team if you dream about making it big tonight.
4. Surya Kumar Yadav (Mumbai Indians)
Form is temporary, but class is permanent! This statement holds true for the number 1 T20I batter in the world presently, Surya Kumar Yadav. He might be going through a barren run but he has the ability to churn out some special and magical knocks.
Yadav needs just one big innings before he can roar back into his legendary form again.
5. Moeen Ali (Chennai Super Kings)
All-rounders should always be in your fantasy team. They fetch the maximum number of points and Moeen Ali is just one of them. Ali is a very flexible batter and can also bowl some quality off-spin.
In the previous game against Lucknow, Chennai Super Kings’ Moeen Ali wreaked havoc with the ball and took 4 wickets. He had also scored 19 runs in just 13 balls.
