My Dream XI


Quinton de Kock has been a standout amongst the most steady batsmen on the planet of late and he has additionally evoked some noteworthy exhibitions in this current season's IPL settling on his decision a simple pick. He scored 69 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the past match.


Rohit Sharma has been extraordinary in driving the side with his own exhibitions and furthermore gives Indians a great deal of certainty in front of the World Cup in the late spring.

Suryakumar Yadav has completed a not too bad occupation of scoring speedy runs when he's been approached to come in and is an entirely adaptable batsman that is a benefit for the side.

Nitish Rana has been one of the fortifications in a fairly powerless KKR batting lineup barring Andre Russell's extraordinary appearing. He has been fairly steady in his thumps and realizes how to time and pace his innings well showing self-restraint, something that the other batsmen have needed.

Shubman Gill was granted the Man of the Match for his appearing against Kings XI Punjab. Kevin Pietersen considered him the following genius of Indian cricket and it is difficult to differ with that.


Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians have the two best all-rounders in the Indian Premier League this season and apparently, on the planet.

Andre Russell has been a conviction resisting brute with the ball and particularly with the bat. He has without any assistance conveyed KKR for the greater part of the competition and is their absolute best at meeting all requirements for playoffs.

Hardik Pandya has been going head to head with Andre Russell as an overwhelming hitter of the ball. Hardik is likewise a super resource with the ball and has grabbed wickets consistently as well.

Krunal Pandya has bolstered his sibling great and is additionally a tricky all-rounder who is instrumental with both the bat and the ball.


Jasprit Bumrah got two wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the past diversion and furthermore kept the keeps running on a rope in the alarming Super Over that pursued.

Rahul Chahar has worked superbly in halting the break of keeps running in the speedy arrangement. The youthful leg-break bowler approaches his diversion with a specific certainty and he can be the X-factor.

Sandeep Warrier had an amusement changing exhibition with Kolkata Knight Riders against Kings XI Punjab as he rejected the opening batsmen one after another and he will be relied upon to make early advances once more.

Skipper and bad habit chief: Andre Russell and Hardik Pandya

Different alternatives: Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma

Player to look out for: Andre Russell

Kolkata Knight Riders need to win against Mumbai and expectation that some way or another Sunrisers Hyderabad drop focuses all together for the Knight Riders to meet all requirements for the playoffs. Also, it's implied that indeed, the man in the spotlight will be Andre Russell. Russell has conveyed the group on his back for the greater part of the competition and where every other person fizzled, he stood and conveyed alone. It will be to a great extent up to his ruinous batting and deadly bowling for KKR to qualify and they have to supplement Russell well.
