Nothing is going fine for Kings XI Punjab these days! At one point, they were at the top and were looking to enter into playoffs early but previous losses are forcing them to stay at the edge. On the other hand, it’s a clear equation for MI as well as the current IPL champions need to win both of their clashes to increase their chances of playing the playoffs. Let’s check out our fantasy XI for the game:
What is Fantasy Cricket?
Fantasy Cricket is an online multiplayer game where users have to make their virtual team of 11 players including both the sides. For example, if Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore are playing tonight, so the 11 players would be selected combined from both the sides. Here are some of the points that we generally keep in mind while selecting our XI:
- A user cannot pick more than 7 players from one team
- In general terms, a player you chose to be your captain receives 2 times the points
- And a player you chose your vice-captain receives 1.5 times the points
- You can select only 1 wicket-keeper, 3-5 batsmen, 1-3 all-rounders, 3-5 bowlers
- In most of the cases, you can use only 100 credits (credits will always be mentioned in front of the players)
Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab
KL Rahul is our choice for wicket-keeper because of his remarkable performance so far in the IPL 2018. We could have gone for Ishan Kishan as well but the possibility of KL Rahul scoring big is very high. Rahul has been the show-stopper for KXIP to date and his fireworks are really important in this game too if Punjab want to enter the playoffs.
KL Rahul (10.5 cr)
We have gone with some super stars in the list! Chris Gayle, Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis and JP Duminy are in our list. All of them can anytime fire and change the scenario of the match. So, if Gayle storm occurs tomorrow then you are going to win for sure. Lewis and Yadav also are impressing in every match whereas Duminy can bat sensibly in the middle-order.
Chris Gayle (vc) (10 cr), Evin Lewis (9 cr), Suryakumar Yadav (9 cr), JP Duminy (8.5 cr)
Pandya brothers are there in our all-rounders list! They have shown their capability in the past and are very much capable of pulling things up in this major encounter. Both Hardik & Krunal are MI’s stars who have helped their team on numerous occasions.
Hardik Pandya (c) (9.5 cr), Krunal Pandya (9 cr)
Without any doubt, we have gone for Jasprit Bumrah, Andrew Tye and Mohit Sharma as our pace bowlers. The lone spinner we have opted is Mayank Markande because Mujeeb Zadran may not get a game because of his injured hand. So, taking risk won’t be a good option. These 4 bowlers combined have taken so many wickets so far and another super duper performance from here can lead you to victory.
Jasprit Bumrah (9 cr), Andrew Tye (9 cr), Mayank Markande (8.5 cr), Mohit Sharma (8 cr)
Our captain is Hardik Pandya and vice-captain is Chris Gayle
So, would you take all these 11 players in your fantasy XI or making any changes?
