Fantasy league picks
Enjoy the Fantasy Cricket alongside this cracker of a match. These are some picks which we think might make a difference.
Although, Andre Russell has been good with the bat in the previous iterations of IPL, he has been awfully quiet this season. But his masterful batting is known to everyone and he is a great option for a bowler in the death overs.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Mayank Agarwal has scored 281 runs in 6 matches for Punjab and is one of the best powerplay batsmen of this season. Rahul Tripathi is a powerpacked batsman with match-winning capabilities. He can play the role of an opener as well as a finisher quite well.
Punjab will place a lot of faith in Nicholas Pooran after he smashed a 37-ball 77 in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He boasts a SR of 178 in this IPL season.
Sarfraz Khan is a pillar for Punjab and he is expected to stay strong down the order. Right now, he is crumbling which is a bad sign for Punjab.
Shivam Mavi has taken 3 wickets at an economy rate of 7.66 in powerplays. Ravi Bishnoi came up huge against Sunrisers Hyderabad picking up 3 wickets for 29 runs.
Predictions, My XI, and Probable XI
My XI- Mayank Agarwal (Captain), Rahul Tripathi (Vice-Captain), KL Rahul (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Shubman Gill, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Shivam Mavi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ravi Bishnoi, Pat Cummins.
Chris Gayle could finally make his maiden appearance in IPL 2020. Maxwell may be left out.
Probable XI (KXIP)- Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (C), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Prabhsimran Singh/Sarfraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Arshdeep Singh/M Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Sheldon Cottrell, Mohammad Shami
Probable XI (KKR)- Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik (C, wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy
