Poor form alert (LKN) 

  • Avesh Khan has only 2 wickets in the last 4 matches. 


Risk-Reward Alert

  • Ravi Bishnoi has a great record against left-handers and he will be a must-pick for this game, especially when KKR is batting 2nd.

  • Krunal Pandya’s bowling value decreases as there are plenty of left-handers in the KKR batting unit. You can drop him.  

  • Quinton de Kock and Kyle Mayers (if he plays) can wreak havoc as KKR is struggling with their new ball bowling. Varun Chakravarthy is the only threat to the duo. 

  • Yash Thakur and Mohsin Khan will be excellent differential picks, especially when KKR is batting 1st.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Jason Roy, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Shardul Thakur, Sunil Narine, Harshit Rana, Vaibhav Arora, Varun Chakravarthy
