Which Rario Player Cards you should pick for KKR vs GT D3 Contest | IPL 2023 — Match 39
Date: 29th April 2023
Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Dependable Trio for D3
Rashid Khan (GT) [Captain]: The best T20 spinner in the world by some distance, Rashid Khan has been outstanding in the IPL 2023. He has been expensive at over 8rpo but has taken 14 wickets from seven innings. He is averaging 16.14 and striking every 12 balls. The leg-spinner is a key player for Gujarat Titans in middle and even at the back end. Rashid remains our best captaincy option for this contest.
Andre Russell (KKR): Kolkata Knight Riders rely on Andre Russell heavily. The all-rounder hasn't had a great tournament but has shown his value on a few occasions. He snared 3 for 22 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and picked 2 for 29 in the most recent game. Russell has also had a couple of 30+ scores. His T20 numbers are terrific and he remains a solid pick on D3.
David Miller (GT): The South African power-hitter hasn't had a great amount of game-time in the season but has still made an impact. Miller has scored 148 runs in six innings at an average of 49 while striking at 146. He was excellent against Mumbai Indians in the previous outing, scoring 46 runs in just 22 balls. Buy a Miller rario card and you could win great rewards.
