MS Dhoni is one of the best Wicket keepers in the world. He has scored three centuries in IPL and he helped his team to win many games. MS Dhoni is currently playing for Chennai Super Kings and he will lead the team into this match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 26th 2019 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
MS Dhoni is one of the best captains in the Indian Premier League. He was with Chennai Super Kings for 9 years, and then he moved to Rising Pune Supergiant. Now, he is back to his old team after a gap of 2 years. CSK has won IPL titles 5 times till now. MS Dhoni has won 2 league titles with CSK so far (2010-11, 2011-12).
It's not just about his captaincy skills; he also plays a vital role as a wicketkeeper when needed. He also bats well at number 7 or 8 position in most cases. In fact, he has taken over 1000 runs as an opener so far in IPL history! Then what can I say about him as fielder? He has been awarded with prestigious “Golden Glove” thrice in his career so far! Lastly, do not forget that this guy can bowl too! He has taken 6 wickets at an economy of 4 during his entire career in T20 cricket thus far!
You can select MS Dhoni in your Dream11 team on the basis of him being an excellent Wicket keeper with a higher strike rate than other Wicket keepers. He has a high average of 39.46 and an average of 5.43, which is quite good for an Indian player.
MS Dhoni, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu make up the middle order for CSK. Kedar Jadhav and Suresh Raina are at numbers seven and eight respectively. Dwayne Bravo is expected to open alongside Imran Tahir while Ravindra Jadeja will be the first change in bowlers.
SRH has retained Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan and Vijay Shankar but they have released Basil Thampi. Unmukt Chand was bought back by SRH after being released by CSK last year along with Deepak Hooda (now at RCB) before the auction. SRH's bowling attack comprises Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma and Ankit Rajpoot who will likely be fielded as an all rounder if required.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are the defending champions and have been performing very well in this tournament. They have won three games out of six played. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings lost their last game against Delhi Capitals by one run but they will be itching to get back into the winning column.
The Sunrisers start off with a win against Royal Challengers Bangalore and then beat Kolkata Knight Riders before losing to Rajasthan Royals in their last match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been their best bowler so far with 7 wickets at an economy of 6.88 while Rashid Khan has taken 4 wickets for an economy rate of 7.75
David Warner is a good batsman, Jonny Bairstow is a good wicket keeper and Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar and Yusuf Pathan/Mohammad Nabi are all capable of making significant contributions with the bat. Rashid Khan's bowling can be devastating on his day, so do not underestimate him either. The rest of the bowlers are prone to leaking runs but will be able to create chances to win if they get their lines right. Sandeep Sharma was very expensive in his last game but he has been brought in as cover for Bhuvneshwar Kumar who has been ruled out due to injury.
One of the biggest droughts in cricket is the fact that MS Dhoni is not a part of this match. Though both teams have some great players, with or without Dhoni, CSK still have a lot to prove.
The home team has been struggling so far this season as they are standing at 5th position in the points table and it does not look good for them. They would try everything to win this match so that they can get their confidence back before playoffs begin.
This is a very big match for both the teams and you have to make sure that you choose the best player from each team. So, it is recommended that you do your research properly before making any selection in your CSK vs SRH Dream 11.
