Below is a pick I am selecting prior to the game, but keep folowing my twitter handle for the #IPL8 picks Please follow my on twitter @rahulm3 for live in-play tips with the HASHTAG #INPLAYMAGIC

Chennai Super Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders
D Smith Under 33.5 runs @ 1.53 (Bet365) – 4 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
M Pandey Under 26.5 runs @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 2.5 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)

Dwayne Bravo 38 & Over Performance Points @ 1.83 (Bet365) – 3 points

If there ever was a player to be the perfect one for T20 cricket, its Dwayne Bravo. He can bat, can bowl, can field, can catch and can dance a bit as well for entertaining the crowds

Bravo has been a consistent performer throughout his time in the IPL; and I won’t be surprised if he continues to do that. Last time around he didn’t get a good run in as the opposition had collapsed, but against a tougher team tonight in the Kolkata Knight Riders, I expect him to play a pivotal role in their victory.

In his last few matches, below are his performance points:

v DD: 10 points (1 catch)
v RCB: 45 points (5 runs, 1 wicket, 2 catches)
v RR : 92 points (62 runs, 1 wicket, 1 catch)
v MI : 63 points (13 runs, 2 wickets, 1 catch)
v SRH: 40 points (2 wickets)
v DD : 51 points (1 run, 2 wickets, 1 catch)

I don’t see any reason for Bravo to play poorer than he has in recent games, and I expect him to continue the trend to take at least 1 wicket, 1 catch and score some runs to push it through.
