PBKS vs CSK – Today’s Dream11 Team Captain And Vice-Captain | Punjab vs CSK

PBKS vs CSK: Punjab Kings were off to a victorious start against a dogged Rajasthan Royals in their season opener. PBKS was led from the very front by their captain as Rahul smoked an astonishing 91 in the first innings to set the drumbeats of the game. CSK, on the contrary, saw their batters belt out a peachy performance only to be refuted glory by a supreme batting unit of Delhi Capitals. These will be our captaincy and vice-captaincy choices for the game between PBKS vs CSK.

Before we delve into the choices, we would like to give you a brief heads-up about the surface that will be for offer at the Wankhede. It will be highly conducive for the batters and will offer a good deal of pace to the bowlers, unlike the Chennai surface where the slow bowlers have made merry, especially in the death overs that sees the ball sticking out in the surface and making life a living hell for the batters.

CSK’s batting line up will be remonetized to their glorious selves as their leader with the bat is back and has shown promise right away. Raina hacked away at the bowlers in the preceding game after he got his eyes set and that is what propelled Chennai’s total to 188.


Punjab Kings will also be elated to see their batters off to a roaring start which featured an early blitzkrieg from Chris Gayle, ensued by a brilliant knock from the captain and an unheralded Deepak Hooda.

This contest will be more of a run-fest as it comprises all the ingredients which are required to formulate a thriller of the highest order as the two best batting sides of the tournament go toe-to-toe on a surface that is tipped overwhelmingly in the batsmen’s favour.

Here is why these will be the best captaincy and vice-captaincy choices for PBKS vs CSK:

Captaincy: Lokesh Rahul

Rahul’s recent international form in T20 cricket will not really inspire hopes even in the bravest of hearts to make him a captain of a fantasy side. However, the grit, consistency and domination which he has shown over the years in IPL, have been nothing short of exceptional and the intimidating form that he has been in ever since IPL 2020 will make it almost compulsive to make him the captain of your fantasy side.


There are countless reasons for choosing this man as the skipper of your side with the one coming to the fore is his variegated arsenal. His wrists move around in an exceptionally slick manner which gives him the leeway to hammer his way out of the park even on deliveries that would merely be a play-out delivery for a batsman.

He also likes to resort to the aerial route and his bravado in taking his front foot out in no time gives him ample time to craft a neat stroke. That is exactly why he is one of the most destructive batters of the tournament and will also be a great captaincy pick. Another reason that he will continue to drive the captaincy choice is because of his neat glovework behind the timbre. His ability to affect a couple of soft dismissals will add to his points tally.

Vice-Captaincy: Ravindra Jadeja

Jadeja mastered a mediocre show in the last game that dampened Chennai’s spirits. However, currently, India’s finest all-rounder is capable of conjuring magical showdowns in all the departments that will see him leading the queue for the vice-captaincy choices.


He is a valuable addition towards the end of the innings, especially with a sloppy batting order of Chennai until now. The freedom that the Wankhede pitch offers to the batsmen will come in extremely handy for this southpaw as he can score a few crucial runs towards the end which mainly comes in through boundaries.

Now he is also an effective spinner and has produced some extraordinary variations over the span of his glittering antiquity in IPL. He has been one of Chennai Super Kings’ mainstays ever since the team stepped in the arcade and will continue to be a driving force for the team with all-around prowess which has been on a decline in the recent days of the Yellow Army.
