Analysis of the venue, prospective fantasy player picks from both teams, Captain choices and much more

Fantasy players’ focus shifts to Eden Gardens which is set to host a thrilling encounter tonight, featuring the table toppers Chennai Super Kings and a quite inconsistent Kolkata Knight Riders side. Having won 6 out of their 8 games, MS Dhoni’s men find themselves comfortably sitting at the top of the table and 2 wins in the remaining 6 games could take them to the playoffs for a record ninth time in IPL history. The home side have rather been highly unpredictable, winning 4 and losing the other 4 out of the 8 games played so far. KKR are currently placed at the 4th position in the table and a win tonight might see them temporarily move ahead of KXIP, provided they win by a good margin.

Eden Gardens’ report

Out of the 4 games played here so far, 3 have been won by the team batting second.

176 is the average first innings score in those 4 games.

Sunil Narine has picked up 7 wickets and has scored 61 runs in Eden Gardens, this season.

The toss winning captain has chosen to field first in all 4 occasions.

Ideal Players to pick tonight


Ambati Rayudu

Suresh Raina

Chris Lynn

Robin Uthappa

Shubman Gill

Wicket Keeper

MS Dhoni

All Rounders

Shane Watson

Andre Russell

Sunil Narine


Lungi Ngidi

Kuldeep Yadav

Piyush Chawla

Harbhajan Singh

The pitch could well be a batsman’s paradise and the fantasy players could go with more batsmen today and earn some big money by topping your leagues.

Captain/ Power player choices

Shane Watson

Ambati Rayudu (Safe pick)

Chris Lynn

Unique Captain pick

Sunil Narine

The West-Indian all rounder has been quite below par with the bat in his recent outings and this may have some impact in the number of people choosing him as the captain or powerplayer tonight. If you can afford to take some risk, Sunil Narine is your perfect captain pick as CSK lacks top quality bowlers which might aid Narine to return to his batting form.
