IPL 2021: PBKS vs KKR 

Section 1: Venue: 

Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad 

Ahmedabad is a very interesting venue, it has both black & red soil surfaces. In short, black soil surface holds and protects the wicket and helps in more bounce & swing (with the new ball). And because the wicket doesn’t break, the batsmen can trust the pace & bounce and can score freely resulting in high scores. 

While red soil surface (which is commonly seen in India) assits the spinners as it cannot the hold wicket for long and starts deteriorating, allowing the spinners to have more uneven bounce & turn. 

So which surface is used today will have a major role in selecting your fantasy team. 

Dew will be an important factor here as well.

Section 8: Finding the fantasy value: 

KL Rahul (chasing): Safest choice in small leagues, especially, while chasing. No particular threat in the opposition lineup but has struggled at this venue in the T20I series. 

Of course, we all remember those “Rahul at Narendra Modi memes”. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Russell (bowling first): Russell is KKR’s specialist death overs bowler who usually bowls the 18th and 20th over for them, so a wicket there and 20-25 runs later on will be enough for small leagues. 

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Gayle (chasing): Gayle scored runs in the last game but looked very uncomfortable at the start. Could be risky going with him as captain in small leagues, but you definitely have to keep him in your side. Has great numbers against KKR, and all his good knocks have come while chasing against them. 

Gayle vs KKR:

Captaincy suitability: Both small & grand leagues. 

Shubman Gill: Badly struggled with his timing in the last game but has good numbers against Punjab and change in venue might bring change in fortunes for him. 

Gill vs PBKS: Only dismissed once against Shami (total 92 balls, 109 runs) 

Gill vs PBKS: (His most runs, highest average & most fifties against any side)
