Mumbai Indians will face Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday
This 34th match of the Pitch Report tournament will be played on the ground of Abu Dhabi. The pitch of this ground is always considered beneficial for fast bowlers. In the last match played between KKR and RCB, 6 wickets came in the account of fast bowlers. This ground has been very lucky for KKR. In IPL 13, the team won five out of 8 matches in Abu Dhabi.
Wicketkeepers Ishan Kishan of Mumbai Indians can be included in this match as wicketkeeper. Ishaan has shown a very good game recently and he has also been selected in Team India for the T20 World Cup. Ishaan can get more points.
Batsman Fantasy :- KKR captain ON Morgan and Shubman Gill as batsman for 11. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians can bet on Quinton de Kock and Surya Kumar Yadav. These four players play an important role in their respective teams. In the last match, de Kock played a quick innings of 38 runs. Although Surya Kumar Yadav’s bat looked calm, but if the previous innings is removed, then his current form has also been very good.
For Kolkata, Shubman Gill played an attractive innings of 48 runs in the last match and Captain Morgan could not even get a chance to bat. These four players can get better points in the batting line-up.
As all-rounders, Kieron Pollard of Mumbai and Andre Russell of KKR can be given a place in Fantasy-11 in this match. Pollard can play the role of a game changer with both the ball and the bat, while Russell’s magic was seen in the last match as well. Against RCB, Russell took three wickets giving only 9 runs. Andre Russell can prove to be very important on the wicket of Abu Dhabi.
Chahar will be the key player
