The Knight Riders will be delighted to get back home to play the Kings XI Punjab. The conditions at the Eden Gardens will bring the spinners into play from both sides.
While the hosts might not tinker with their squad, the tourists will be tempted to make some changes.
Also, remember, there is no Shaun Marsh for the remainder of the IPL.
Probable 11 that could take to the field
KKR- Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, SK Yadav, Andre Russell, Shakib, Chris Lynn/Morne Morkel, Yusuf Pathan, Piyush Chawla, Umesh Yadav, Sunil Narine, Rajgopal Satish
KXIP- Shaun Marsh, Murli Vijay, Wriddhiman Saha, David Miller, Glenn Maxwell, Axar Patel, Manan Vohra, Sandeep Sharma, Mitch Johnson, Mohit Sharma, Pradeep Sahu
Players who cannot be ignored
Andre Russell- The Jamaican all-rounder was sensational with both bat and ball against RCB. Surely, you can’t leave him out.
Yusuf Pathan- He showed his worth for KKR and his ability to win games singlehandedly.
Robin Uthappa- Points up for grabs in the wicket-keeping section. Also, KXIP keepers are not reliable.
Mohit Sharma- He won’t intimidate the batsmen, but certainly has the ability to pick wickets at regular intervals.
Murali Vijay- The new Punjab skipper might continue his decent run with the willow given the responsibility.
TFG PUNDIT XI: Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa(VC), Andre Russell(C), Yusuf Pathan, Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, Mohit Sharma, Murli Vijay, David Miller, Mohit Sharma, Manish Pandey
