In the first game of the doubleheader tonight, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Delhi Capitals. The match will be held in Abu Dhabi. Ahead of this game, we give you a list of players who can perform well in the Dream11 fantasy league.
The lone warrior who gives consistent performances in the KKR batting lineup. You simply cannot trust any other KKR batsman but you can pick Morgan blindly.
He played only two games this season and has already become the frontline bowler for KKR. He will be a player to watch out for in this game as well.
Dhawan has scored two back to back centuries in his last two games and three consecutive half-centuries in the games before that. Go for him without any second thoughts.
The leading wicket-taker of this tournament. Rabada can assure you at least one wicket in every match. That stupendous form makes us pick him in our Dream11 fantasy teams.
Iyer has been playing anchoring innings in every game. Once he settles in the crease, he has the ability to switch the gears according to the situation. Go for him.
Gill is doing pretty well but his strike-rate is a big concern for KKR. If he plays big in this game with a strike rate of more than 100, then you will get many points for sure.
As the pitch in Abu Dhabi has slowed down drastically, we expect Ashwin to do well in this game. He will play a crucial role in the middle-overs.
A good all-rounder choice for this game. Given his big-hitting abilities and handy bowling skills, Stoinis will be a good package for any Dream11 fantasy team.
Chakravarthy has now become the leading spinner for KKR. He is also doing pretty well this season. Given the fact that pitch is pretty slow, he will be a good buy.
Tripathi showed his batting abilities in one match. He is a big striker of the ball and all he needs to do is to stay in the crease and anchor the innings for a while.
Here are the probable playing XI of both the teams:
Kolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell/Tom Banton, Pat Cummins/Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Daniel Sams/Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Tushar Deshpande/Harshal Patel
