Captain: Faf Du Plessis
We saw what he did last game, so no doubt picking him as your fantasy captain. He is the leading run-scorer for his team and 2nd in the Orange cap standing.
Vice-Captain: Ambati Rayudu
Whenever he is in the game, he never fails to deliver. Before Rayudu went out due to injury, he scored a match-winning knock against their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians and registered first win for the CSK. Also, he his handy against spinners, which makes him more dependable against someone like Sunil Narine if openers fail to deliver.
