As Kings XI get ready to host the Kolkata Knight Riders at Mohali today, you need to keep in mind that Aussie all-rounder John Hastings won’t be playing after being ruled out of the IPL.
Also, we would recommend you to pick the marquee batsmen from both sides.
Remember, the visitors thrive on spinners, so Narine and Chawla will be the key.
Probable 11 that could take to the field
KKR- Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey, Andre Russell, Shakib, Yusuf Pathan, SK Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine, Morne Morkel
KXIP- Shaun Marsh, Murli Vijay, Wriddhiman Saha, David Miller, Glenn Maxwell/Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Manan Vohra, Sandeep Sharma, Kyle Abbott, Mohit Sharma, Pradeep Sahu
Players who cannot be ignored for this round
Gautam Gambhir- The KKR skipper has been leading from the front and this is no time to ignore him.
Robin Uthappa- He will open the batting, plus his wicket-keeping too will help you gain fantasy points.
Andre Russell- He has been a star for the men in purple with his all-round abilities.
Murli Vijay- Not many favor him in T20s, but he certainly has the ability to prove his critics wrong.
Shaun Marsh- It’s not often that the Aussie opener goes without scoring for long. A big one is around the corner.
TFG PUNDIT XI: Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa (c), Manish Pandey, Andre Russell(vc), Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, Shaun Marsh, Murli Vijay, David Miller, Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma
