IPL 2021 has started on a great note. There have already been quite a few games that have gone down the wire. All the teams have played at least one game each. Batsmen and bowlers have left their stamp on the IPL. Mumbai, Chennai and, Ahmedabad have hosted all the 22 completed games till now. The caravan shifts to Delhi with CSK vs SRH game today. Mumbai has witnessed high-scoring matches while Chennai has produced low-scoring thrillers. It will be interesting to see how the wicket in Delhi fares.
Challenge for teams:
IPL 2021 has done away with the concept of home and away. All teams are required to play in neutral venues. This has negated the curated strength of the squad to a certain extent. Despite all odds, few players have put in striking performances. Few such players must have gone unsold in the fantasy auctions earlier. It is time you make a note of such key players and include them in your StumpsandBails fantasy team.
IPL 2021: CSK vs SRH preview
CSK began the tournament on a slightly slippery note. They posted a good total against DC but failed to defend that. CSK came back strongly in the 2nd game and blew away PK. They picked up crucial wickets in the powerplay to dent PK’s innings.
CSK 2.0 in IPL 2021:
CSK put a dominant performance in the game against RR. They comfortably won against them and stormed to the 2nd spot in the points table. CSK boast of having the best Net Run Rate among teams currently. Their experienced outfit has mastered the conditions at Mumbai smartly.
CSK are one of the most balanced teams in the IPL. They are on a roll and even a spirited KKR fightback couldn’t stop them from winning. CSK demolished RCB in their last game at the Wankhede. They are the table toppers and look unstoppable.
SRH’s unfamiliar struggles:
Sunrisers Hyderabad have played all their games at the Chepauk, Chennai. They lost their first 3 games from a position where they could have won the match. SRH’s infamous middle order again proved to be their Achilles heel. They literally seem to have no answers to the batting collapses. SRH finally won against PK and won comfortably. The return of Kane Williamson has strengthened the squad. He almost took them to victory against DC but faltered at the last step. SRH have been let down by some questionable tactics. They will look to put all of this away when they reach Delhi to take on CSK.
IPL 2021: Players to have in your StumpsandBails Fantasy Team
Deepak Chahar has blown hot and cold this IPL season. He has been on top of his game every alternate match. He picked up four wicket hauls in match 2 and match 4. Chahar has been below par in the other 3 games. If numbers hold value then tonight might again be the game where Chahar flexes his muscles. His powerplay bowling is crucial to CSK. Chahar can single handedly wreck the opposition with his new ball spell. He can be a great addition to your fantasy team.
Jagadeesha Suchith was SRH’s enforcer in the last game. It was Suchith’s debut game in orange colours. He almost won the game for SRH with his big hits. Suchith is a gun fielder and an economical bowler too. He is a prime asset. SRH should have ideally played him in all the games but he has finally got his due. Suchith will be keen to build on this momentum and will want to deliver a match winning performance. He must be included in your StumpsandBails fantasy team.
