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.
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.
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.
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.
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),
