Team News:

Kings XI Punjab:

  • Manoj Tiwary is likely to replace the struggling Yuvraj Singh. Against Mumbai, in the previous game, the southpaw was struggling to put bat to ball.
  • Axar Patel was brought in for the last game after a gap of few games. However, if Mohit Sharma is declared fit, Patel will have to make way for him.
  • Miller has been practicing alot in the nets. There is a chance for him to come in place of stonis.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • Rajasthan are very unlikely to tweak with their playing 11. Buttler’s promotion up the order almost worked for them. RR might use the same ploy to put KXIP on the backfoot.
  • Both their place duo Unadkat & Kulkarni going for plenty of runs. Anureet Singh has a chance to come in anyone’s place.
  • Shreyas Gopal is becoming expensive. Ankit Sharma has a small chance to  come in place of him.

Fantasy pick

Have you lost faith in Stokes as a fantasy selection, considering his price? It wouldn’t be surprising if many fantasy players have, which is why he’s a good pick for this game. With short boundaries all around, Stokes may even be promoted up the batting order. If Stokes bats for a few overs, he should fetch you a healthy return.
