Ground Details

Chennai’s Chepauk stadium has been a tough nut to crack for the batsmen and a paradise for the spinners. Spinners in Chepauk have averaged 25.4 runs per wicket in comparison to 55.9 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. The contrast in these numbers underlines why your bowling attack should comprise of spin bowlers. 

Another pattern established at Chepauk is the cease in the flow of runs in the second half of the innings. The batting average in the last 10 overs has dropped to 16.1 from 38.9 in the first 10 overs. Hence, batsmen at the top-order will have the best batting conditions and should form the fulcrum of your batting resources. 

Suggested Teams

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the 17th match of IPL 2021, between Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians. While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms, we have come up with one team.

Captain Selection

It is hard to look past Shikhar Dhawan as your fantasy captain at the moment. The left-hander is in exquisite form, with scores of 85 and 92 in the first four games. Dhawan has also proved his mettle on the sluggish track of Chepauk, anchoring DC to their run chase of 138 against Mumbai with a knock of 45. Since IPL 2020, Dhawan has amassed 849 runs at an average of 47.2, shaping him as the safest bet to double your fantasy points.

X-Factors

Jonny Bairstow has been the highest run-scorer for SRH this season. Scoring 173 runs at an average of 57.7, Bairstow is the only one who seems to have decoded the Chepauk pitch. He bats at the top, thus getting better batting conditions and has made full use of it with two fifties to his name.

With four wickets in two games, Khaleel Ahmed has the best wickets-per-match ratio for an SRH bowler this season. Scratch that, Khaleel has the best wickets-per-match ratio for SRH ever since the teams were reset in 2018. He has picked 31 wickets in only19 games (wickets-per-match ratio of 1.6). Needless to say, wickets are all that matters for a bowler in fantasy. Moreover, Khaleel takes only 8 credit points. Thus, he is one of the best bargain picks available for this match.

The second-highest wicket-taker in IPL history (164), Amit Mishra is the master of bowling on low and slow tracks. He showcased his wiliness against Mumbai which was his first match of the season. Mishra’s spell of 4 for 24 broke the back of Mumbai’s innings. With a number of right-handers in SRH’s middle order, Mishra can once again spin DC to a victory.
