Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: RR
Steve Smith has been in great form. He has scored 119 runs at a strike rate of over 160. He will be a good captain option for your fantasy team.
Jofra Archer, we all know, is lethal with his bowling but he also showed how destructive he can be with his batting. He has scored 6 sixes in the 11 balls he has faced in this IPL.
Sanju Samson, the wicket-keeper from Kerala is in ominous touch. He is the six hitting machine this year with most sixes, 16, to his name.
Jos Buttler missed out in his first game. He will be looking to make up for it in this game.
Fantasy Captain/Vice Captain Options: KKR
Andre Russell, the big West Indian all-rounder hasn’t had enough chances to bat yet in the season. He will be eagerly waiting for his opportunity and when it comes, he will surely unleash his power.
Pat Cummins was back to his best against SRH where he conceded only 19 runs in his quota of 4 overs and picked up the important wicket of Jonny Bairstow.
Eoin Morgan, the England Captain looked in good nick in the last game scoring a fluent 42 in 29 balls to take KKR home. He will play a massive role for KKR in the middle order.
Shubhman Gill, the talented young batsman showed why he is the most talked about youngster in Indian Cricket. He played a fine innings of 70 without taking any risks. He could be a valuable pick.
