KKR vs MI Dream11 Predictions
Wicketkeeping: South African international Quinton de Kock has been in red-hot form this season, he has scored 393 runs so far this campaign. But, on the other hand, the KKR skipper hit a brilliant 97*, which means he is in good form as well. De Kock will pip Karthik on the basis of consistency in the ongoing season.
Batting: There are good batsmen but the ones who make the cut in our Dream11 are Rohit Sharma, Chris Lynn, Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill.
Bowling: Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga are best wicket takers among the two sides. Along with the obvious pick of Jasprit Bumrah, it is Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga.
All-rounder: The choices for the all-rounders are also pretty straightforward. One just can’t leave out Andre Russell in this form, he is joined by Hardik Pandya in our Dream11.
