Kings XI Punjab vs Rajasthan Royals: Fantasy XI guide
Kings XI Punjab will be hoping to return to winning ways when they host Rajasthan Royals tonight. Currently placed on 4th spot, KXIP will have have a chance to overtake KKR. For Royals, this is a must-win game if they have to keep their playoff chances alive. So whom should you pick in your Fantasy XI for tonight's crucial tie?
We have selected 5 batsmen for today's fixture. Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi will be our three Rajasthan Royals batsmen. Samson and Rahane are Rajasthan's in-form batsmen and should be safe bets. 'Universe Boss' Chris Gayle and Karun Nair will be the two Kings XI batsmen. KL Rahul will be the man behind the stumps.
There is plenty of all-round talent on display tonight and we have opted to select big hitting Krishnappa Gowtham as one of our all-rounders. Gowtham can not only bowl an economical spell but of late he has made the headlines for his big hitting at the death. Kings XI Punjab's Marcus Stoinis will be the second all-rounder
A three-man bowler line-up will complete this XI. Mujeeb Ur Rahman has been a revelation for Kings XI Punjab. He along with the impressive Ankit Rajpoot will be the two bowlers from Punjab's side. Jofra Archer has lived up to the reputation he had built in the Big Bash League and has continued his form since return from his injury.
When you have a player like Chris Gayle in your XI, it is always wise to make him the captain. The Jamaican is enjoying a purple patch and should score some big runs tonight. Sanju Samson, who is on song, will be our vice captain.
