So we are here with the two teams that now stand a chance to make it to the finals of the Indian T20 League 2019. While we already have Mumbai as the first finalists, the winner of the Qualifier 2 between Chennai and Delhi will decide who Mumbai meets at the Rajiv Gandhi international stadium.
Chennai are a very experienced team when it comes to playoffs, while Delhi, who are new to this pressure, are playing all guns blazing under the coaching and mentorship of Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly. Here is all you need to know for both the teams before picking your Fantain and Dream11 teams for the Chennai vs Delhi game to be played in Vizag.
Team News –
With the Vizag pitch assisting spinners, Chennai will enjoy an upper hand in this game. The middle order will have to step up to ease the pressure off MS Dhoni and Faf du Plessis.
Likely playing XI – Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir
Delhi too are unlikely to make any changes and will field the same winning combination from the eliminator game. Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant came good with the bat while Keemo Paul and Trent Boult were impressive with the ball.
Likely playing XI – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (wk), Colin Munro/Colin Ingram, Sherfane Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Trent Boult, Ishant Sharma
Wicket-keeper – Rishabh Pant
Batsmen – Prithvi Shaw, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Faf du Plessis
All-Rounders – Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja
Bowlers – Imran Tahir, Ishant Sharma, Deepak Chahar
Captain and vice-captain options
Rishabh Pant was in a monstrous form last game, before giving away his wicket in his usual manner. But during his innings, he made sure that the game slipped from Hyderabad’s hands. Pant can be your captain for this game.
Ravindra Jadeja is a big match player who has the experience of playing in several high octane clashes which will be crucial when he bats and bowls in this game. Not to forget, the slow pitch will also assist him. As a vice-captain, he can get you crucial points in your Fantain game.
This is our Fantain Fantasy XI but you’re the real expert.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Head to Head/ Small Leagues:
WicketKeeper – Rishabh Pant
Batsmen – Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis (VC), Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw
All-Rounders – Ravindra Jadeja
Bowlers – Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra
Fantasy Tip – Because the Vizag pitch is slow, Imran Tahir, Dhoni’s go-to wicket-taker this season, is likely to strike a couple of times again with the ball. The South African veteran has used his experience to the fullest in the tournament.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Grand/ Mega Leagues:
WicketKeeper – MS Dhoni
Batsmen – Suresh Raina (C), Shane Watson, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw (VC)
All-Rounders – Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Axar Patel
Bowlers – Harbhajan Singh, Ishant Sharma, Keemo Paul
Fantasy Tip – MS Dhoni has been one of the most consistent batsmen for Chennai throughout the league stage, amassing a total of 368 runs at an average of 12. He came good in the Qualifier 1 against Mumbai too, but in a losing cause. Dhoni is likely to do well on the Vizag pitch which in nature bears resemblance to the Chepauk pitch. Go for Dhoni for your Fantain captain.
