Starting with the wicket-keeper, it is a tough call between KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant.

However, judging by the current form, Rahul gets the nod in this XI.

It is owing to his consistency that we have selected him ahead of Pant for tomorrow's match.

Batsmen

Chris Gayle, Shikhar Dhawan form a deadly batting pair

The batting order starts with two deadly openers in the form of Chris Gayle and Shikhar Dhawan.

Both did fairly well in their previous matches and are likely to continue in the same vein.

Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw would support them. A big knock is expected from Shaw, while KXIP's Sarfaraz Khan can be deadly in the middle order.

All-rounders

Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel the ideal all-rounders

Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel the ideal all-rounders

As for the all-round department, it is all set to consist of the pair of Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel.

The KXIP skipper has the chances to extract maximum points, given he has been in deadly form with the ball.

Axar is a handy all-rounder. He did a decent job with the ball in the previous game, claiming 1/17.

Bowlers

Mohammad Shami, Kagiso Rabada to dominate the bowling attack

The bowling attack is set to start with the pace pair of Mohammed Shami and Kagiso Rabada, who can be lethal on any track.

Having dominated in the entire tournament, so far, make them a no-brainer.

Meanwhile, among the spinners, DC's Amit Mishra can spin the yarn on a sluggish Kotla track, along with KXIP's Murugan Ashwin, who too has been influential this term.

Leaders

Rahul the skipper, Rabada his deputy

KL Rahul gets the nod as the captain. Judging by his top form with the bat, fans are sure to earn extra points if they pick him as the leader.

The vice-captain is a difficult choice, but we feel Rabada is the ideal man to take up the role for his fine bowling performance.

He is likely to deliver once again at Kotla.
