Tips and tricks for ProSportsLeague XI

Nitish Rana has been firing with both bat and ball for KKR
  • In KKR, you should have your eyes set on Nitish Rana. He has been the standout player for KKR. Dinesh Karthik has been fetching consistent runs. Andre Russell has been the heartbeat of this KKR side and Tom Curran showcased what he can offer.
  • Chris Gayle marked his grand entry by scoring the 1st century in this T20 premier league season. KL Rahul can also batter the opponent with his sheer power. The captain R Ashwin and Mujeeb Zadran have been bowling exceptionally well. Do keep an eye on Barinder Sran who has bowled with raw pace and he is slowly becoming a menace.
Players to avoid 

Chris Lynn hasn’t clicked this season and you should avoid him. Avoid Aaron Finch as well as he is batting extremely down the order. The Aussie batsman might also get replaced.

Head-to-Head record

Matches played – 22, KKR won – 14, RR won – 7, No result – 1

Prediction
 
We are going with a KKR win in this one. Even though Chris Gayle has taken the game away from the opposition a couple of times this season, this KKR side is just too good at home. Winning the toss will play the important role like always.
