AR - Iyer
Bowl - Thakur, Varun, Ferguson

Remaining 3 spots -
1. Bravo/Moeen/Jadeja (Any 1 or 2)
2. Uthappa/Rana/Tripathi/Narine (Any 1 or 2)

GL Picks - Rayudu, Karthik, Chahar, Hazelwood, Mavi, Shakib

Predictions (May or May Not Work)

1. Any one opener from both sides to do well and the other to only give a start but not carry on.
2. One of Rayudu or Uthappa to do well for CSK.
3. Bravo is a big game player and has appeared in most T20 Finals than any other player in today's game, and can do well.
4. Moeen could play a crucial role with both bat and ball.
5. One of Rana or Tripathi to do well for KKR.
6. Shardul, Varun and Lockie safest picks from the bowling section. Try Chahar, Hazlewood and Mavi in some GL teams.
7. Narine to atleast get one wicket, and can be promoted to bat at No.5 as well.
8. Dhoni to get more points than Karthik in the keeping section.
9. Jadeja and Shakib are quality experienced all rounders from both sides and can be worthy tries in GL.
10. KKR could win the game through all round performance. CSK could win the game through their top order batting form. (Keep in mind while making 7-4 combinations in GL)
