Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will be taking on the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in 46th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Both the teams have come from a victory in their previous match and it will be interesting to see who keeps their playoffs race alive. KKR had a brilliant game against DC when they ticked all the three boxes. They are sitting in the 4th spot of the points table with 12 points and a win against KXIP will increase their chances of qualification.
KXIP have pulled off an incredible victory against SRH where they defended 127 runs and won the game by 12 runs. Their bowlers have been brilliant so far and batters too have chipped in with crucial runs, especially their top order. It will be a cracker of a contest as both the teams will be playing with the identical goal to qualify for the playoffs.
Here are the 3 players that you can exclude from your Dream11 Fantasy team for KKR vs KXIP game:
1. Shubman Gill (9.5 credits)
Shubman Gill is a young Indian talent that has a bright future in Indian cricket. He has been praised by all the cricket pundits around the globe. He initially had good outings with the bat but as the tournament progressed, he could not live up to the hype he created. He is still a match winner but with other options available, you can opt them instead of Shubman Gill.
2. Ravi Bishnoi (8.5 credits)
Ravi Bishnoi is another young talent who can make it big in the coming years. He was phenomenal with the ball initially. But as of now it looks like the batsmen have figured out how to play him out and not gift their wicket to him. That is why maybe he has been economical but with not as many wickets he used to pick initially. Hence you can opt to bench him for your Dream11 team.
3. Pat Cummins (8.5 credits)
Pat Cummins is the most expensive player to be bought in this year’s auction of the IPL. He is a bowler who has topped the bowling ranking charts. But with the form KXIP top order is in, it’ll be difficult for Pat to chip in with the wickets early on and halt the momentum of the KXIP’s batters. Hence you can surprise with other picks and miss Pat Cummins for this game at least from your Dream11 team.
