Captaincy picks for KOL vs CHE
Nitish Rana (Kolkata)
Nitish Rana started this season brilliantly with the bat, when he scored 80 and 56 in his first two matches. But in the third match, he didn’t seem to find his rhythm quite well. However, batting at the Wankhede Stadium will bring happy memories for the young southpaw, as he had a good record when he played for Mumbai back in 2017. His batting at the top order will important for Kolkata and he would be upbeat for this opportunity.
Moeen Ali (Chennai)
Moeen Ali is currently playing many roles, and he is doing that more perfectly than he played when he was with Bangalore or even when he played for England in T20I. It seems Dhoni likes giving responsibility to the English spin-bowling all-rounder. He returned with some runs with the bat and three wickets with the ball in the last match.
