As Mumbai Indians take on the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede stadium, it is important to pick the form players for this round of fantasy cricket.
Given the nature of the wicket, bowlers could be in for some hammering. That said, the regular wicket-takers need to be drafted into your teams.
Also, don’t expect too many team changes from both sides.
Probable 11 that could take to the field
MI- Ambati Rayudu, Rohit Sharma, Jos Butler, Parthiv Patel, Harbhajan Singh, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McCleneghan, Krunal Pandya, Tim Southee
KKR- Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, SK Yadav, Andre Russell, Shakib, Yusuf Pathan, Piyush Chawla, Umesh Yadav, Rajgopal Satish, Sunil Narine, Morne Morkel
Players who cannot be ignored
Rohit Sharma- The MI skipper has blown hot and cold, but playing in front of his home crowd means it can be dangerous proposition to ignore him.
Gautam Gambhir- The southpaw has led by example with the willow at the top. Might not go hell for leather but can certainly keep up with the pace.
Robin Uthappa- He has been simply outstanding in this IPL. Points almost there for the taking with both bat & gloves.
Mitch McCleneghan- The Kiwi paceman has been the strike bowler for MI with the new and old ball. Deserves a place in all dream teams.
Piyush Chawla- He might not be playing for India, but the leggie still has plenty of tricks up his sleeve.
TFG PUNDIT XI: Ambati Rayudu, Rohit Sharma(VC), Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McCleneghan, Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa(C), SK Yadav, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine
