Fantasy league picks
Despite the heroics of KL Rahul in almost every match, Punjab are at the bottom of the points table. Losing their last match against CSK by 10 wickets would have hurt them hard.
Mayank Agarwal is in a good form and along with KL Rahul, they make for a great pair. In 5 matches, Mayank has scored 272 runs. He can prove to be a great economical pick for today's match.
Captain and Vice-Captain
David Warner holds a great record against Kings XI Punjab in the IPL. He has scored a total of 819 runs against them with a 50 in each of the last 8 innings against them. KL Rahul is the leading run scorer this IPL amassing more than 300 runs in just 5 matches.
Manish Pandey is definitely a match-winner. He is good with the bat and with his agility and sharp reflexes, he can save lot of runs on the field.
