IPL 2023: Top 3 Vice-Captain Picks For CSK vs KKR Game

KKR vs CSK IPL 2023

One of the most underrated rivalries of all time, the match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has a tremendous history and legacy. The two teams have met in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 and IPL 2012 finals and have a lot of good contests to their name.

As the two teams lock horns with each other in this game of IPL 2023 at the Eden Gardens, they are literally on the opposite sides of the spectrum.

While MS Dhoni’s CSK are in the 3rd position in the points table, KKR are struggling in the 8th position. A win for KKR in this game would help them draw some much-needed confidence.

In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for the KKR vs CSK game in IPL 2023:

1. Devon Conway (Chennai Super Kings)

Kiwi southpaw Devon Conway is ruling the roost in IPL 2023. He scored his 3rd fifty in IPL 2023 in the previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and could well be the knight in shining armour for CSK in this game.

In 6 games so far in this edition of the lucrative IPL, Conway has scored 258 runs at a blistering average of 51.60.

2. Varun Chakravarthy (Kolkata Knight Riders)

A senior pro in Kolkata Knight Riders now, mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy could be a vital force for Nitish Rana and co. He has dismissed MS Dhoni on 3 occasions in just 16 balls in the IPL and Nitish Rana could make Chakravarthy bowl when the talismanic skipper is on the crease.

When KKR and RCB locked horns with each other at Eden Gardens in this season, Varun Chakravarthy wreaked havoc and bagged 4 wickets. He most certainly should be the vice-captain of your fantasy team for this KKR vs CSK game.

3. Andre Russell (Kolkata Knight Riders)

The late fireworks from the Big Man Andre Russell in KKR’s previous game against Delhi Capitals (DC) proves the fact that a big knock is just on the cards from the willow of Russell. He is bowling as well and picked up 3 wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Because of his all-round abilities with the bat and with the ball, Andre Russell can be a good vice-captain in your fantasy team. He can fetch a lot of points and can be the deciding factor in your team during this KKR vs CSK game.
