MS Dhoni will be delighted with how things have worked out so far for his team as the Chennai based franchise sit merrily at the second position in the table.

Busting the Dilemma

Choosing the captain !

After reading those three names above, every fantasy player would certainly be confused of choosing the right one and here we assist you by providing the scenarios :

The safe bet

If you cant afford to take a risk in this game and want to play safely, Virat Kohli will always be your perfect fit. The aggressive captain chips in a handy knock every game and will make sure you earn at least a decent score from him.

Valuable all-rounder choice 

Shane Watson could be a better choice for those who wish to travel away from the normal path and want to score more than those mentioned in the above category. Watson is not new to Chinnaswamy and his contribution in both batting and fielding could tempt few to choose him as captain over Virat Kohli.

Destructive batsman gamble 

AB de Villiers says hi to those who wish to take a further risk by not selecting the aforementioned players and want to proceed in an unique path. ABD’S scores this season - 44,57,20,1,90 shows why he is also one of the contenders for the captain choice. Once MR.360 gets going it’s going to be one hell of a job to stop him.
