Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders – Fantasy Tips
Talking about the PrizePicks fantasy tips, after his brilliant all-round show in the last match you should include Ravindra Jadeja in your side. Also since the match is in Mumbai pick batsmen who time the ball well such as Shubman Gill, Moeen Ali. You can avoid picking the great MS Dhoni as he hardly gives himself overs to bat nowadays and you can pick Dinesh Karthik as the only keeper.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings – Top Fantasy Picks
Shubman Gill: The KKR opener has got starts in the tournament but hasn’t been able to kick on and score a biggie. Tonight might just be that match as Gill will be keen to score big on the batting-friendly Wankhede pitch.
Andre Russell: The KKR all-rounder will be glad that the Chennai leg is over and he will be batting in Mumbai. Russell has the power to dominate any bowling attack on his day plus the pitch will suit his style of play more. Hence he becomes an automatic pick in your fantasy team.
Ravindra Jadeja: With 4 catches and 2 wickets in the last match, Ravindra Jadeja was at his absolute best. It is important to pick Jadeja as he contributes in every department which will help you fetch a lot of fantasy points.
Moeen Ali: Much like Jadeja Moeen Ali too contributes in all 3 departments and it is a luxury to have a quality all-rounder in your fantasy team.
