CSK vs BLR Dream11: Two teams who have had their share of wins and losses over the years with the kind of cricket they have played and the camaraderie their skippers share. Two icons of Indian cricket MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli go head to head and they are also 1 and 2 in the table and that would be the icing on the cake where these two teams go head with them trying to top the table. Both the teams are hot right now however with the kind of form that has been shown by Virat and his team, you would say that on a flat deck, they would be the favored team. It is the game that will be the quintessential clash of the titans here

CSK vs BLR Playing 11.
CSK Probable XI
CSK Playing 11 (likely)
Faf du Plessis
The team here has been known for their backing of players for a longer term and the faith was repaid last time around by Rituraj Gaekwad and Deepak Chahar who both performed brilliantly in the last game and got them over the line in a tricky game against KKR
FAF du Plessis – He has been the most consistent player for this team for a while and is averaging a staggering 82 right now in the tournament at a strike rate of 145 with 167 runs. He is the mainstay of their batting.
Deepak CHahar – He is causing problems with the new ball and with the RCB top order, he will be the one weapon who they will be hoping to unleash and be the game changer here in this tournament.
BLR Playing 11 (likely)
AB de Villiers
This is a very top heavy team but where they have clicked most is the bowling at the death with Siraj and Harshal being real finds in the tough situations. You would expect them to be at the forefront of their death bowling once again
G Maxwell – He has scored the most runs for his franchise and is right now the most bankable player here. He has scored at an average of over 58 and scored 176 runs. He goes hard at the ball and strikes at 150. The Strike rate can go higher and higher once he is set.
Devdutt Padikal – he showed in the last game how he is the one to watch out for in the coming weeks and months and years. He got his maiden 100 in the last game and showed why he is such a class act. Expect him to be there at the forefront of everything.
It’s an even game but Bangalore are likely to edge this one as they look more comfortable on the flat batting pitch at Wankhade.. This could be their statement year. CSK vs BLR Dream11 today match prediction
