Fantasy League Picks
Varun Chakravarthy continues to impress with his spin bowling and is proving to be a good economical, wicket-taking option in the KKR squad. In 12 matches, he has scalped 15 wickets at an economy rate of 7.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Ben Stokes has shown why he is one of the best all-rounders in the world. In 7 matches he has scored 267 runs at strike rate of 141 and has scalped 2 wickets. In RR's last two matches against Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab, he scored match-winning scores of 107 and 50 respectively. Nitish Rana was seen struggling but it seems that he is back to his hard-hitting ways. He has 352 runs 13 matches at a strike rate of 139.
KKR's captain Eoin Morgan has scored 350 runs in 13 matches with a strike rate of 131. He can score big runs if he promotes himself up the batting order.
Steve Smith has been inconsistent throughout this season of IPL. He scored his highest of 69 in RR's opening match against CSK and since then, it has been a rocky road for him.
Varun Chakravarthy and Pat Cummins are KKR's two of the best bowlers and the team will expect them to dismantle the RR batting line-up. Jofra Archer is fourth in the race for the purple cap with 19 wickets in 13 matches at an economy rate of 6.69.
