Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will lock horns at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in match 32 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). KKR will be looking to win this one and enhance their chances of qualifying for the playoffs. They would want to forget their previous outing against RCB and will look to start fresh.
MI, on the other hand, have had their campaign on high as of now. They have ticked the boxes of all 3 departments on the field and have players who have performed as a collective unit. It’ll be exciting to see how KKR will look to execute their plans this time around and at the same time, it will be interesting to see how MI will fare in the conditions they are already familiar with.
For you to excel in the fantasy cricket, here are the 3 players whom you can give a miss in your Dream11 team for KKR vs MI game:
1. James Pattinson (8.5 credits)
James Pattinson has had a decent IPL this season after being considered to fill in the huge boots of Lasith Malinga. He has picked up 9 wickets in 7 matches and has fared well thus far. He has been economical on a few occasions but has been targetted by the opposition teams some times. Considering these factors you can give him a miss.
2. Nitish Rana (9 credits)
Nitish Rana hasn’t been up to the mark this season. He could just manage 150 runs in 7 matches and had few forgettable outings as well. He has struggled against spinners as well as seamers and couldn’t replicate his past performances from previous seasons. With poor performances back to back, you can avoid picking Nitish Rana.
3. Hardik Pandya (9 credits)
Hardik Pandya hasn’t matched the expectations so far in this season. He could score only 135 runs in 7 outings with the bat whereas he is yet to bowl due to fitness concerns. With the bowlers MI possess, definitely, Rohit Sharma wouldn’t be considering him to have a go with the ball. With the bat, Hardik has got chances only when there has been a collapse. Considering all the firepower from both the teams combined, you can have a look at the other options from both the teams instead of Hardik.
