Chennai Super Kings are all set to take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the biggest game this season. The two teams have reached the pinnacle of the Indian Premier League 2021 and now find themselves just a step away from winning the biggest T20 tournament in the world. As these two great teams clash with each other on the field, fans have a great chance of winning some fantasy points. Here are 3 players to avoid in your fantasy teams for CSK vs KKR final match: 

1. Eoin Morgan

The KKR skipper has been totally out of form in this tournament so far. He hasn’t been quite good with the bat and has struggled right through this year with the bat. The slowness of the surfaces in the UAE has also not helped his cause. Despite being a great leader of this unit, it has been difficult for him to add more value to the side with his bat. He is coming into this game with a duck on his back as well. On top of that, it should also be noted that he has 129 runs in 16 matches this season. Apart from this, the position in which he bats doesn’t really allow him to get bigger scores which don’t let him add more fantasy points to his name. 

2. Dinesh Karthik

The KKR wicketkeeper batter has been one of those batters who has struggled to get runs, especially because he has batted deep in the innings when batting has been generally difficult. In the last game, he got a duck as well along with Morgan. His contribution has been vital for the team’s cause, the magnitude of which performances haven’t been anything to write home about. MS Dhoni is there in this contest and might be seen with his blade on the field in this big game. He is coming into this game after a match-winning cameo against Delhi in Qualifier 1 which makes him a better choice as of now in place of Dinesh Karthik. 

3. Ambati Rayudu

Ambati Rayudu in the last two seasons has done that job for which he had initially been famous while playing for Mumbai Indians. His role is basically of a floater, who can bat at several different positions in the batting line-up and has the ability to play different roles, depending on the situation of the innings. Now what this does is limits his chances of scoring anything significant which can help fans get as many fantasy points as they want. It is better to go with someone who is a bit more assured of his specific batting position.
