SECTION 2: Predicted XI’s: 

MI: 

Rohit (C) (RHB) 

QDK* (WK) (LHB)

Suryakumar (RHB) 

Kishan (LHB)

Pollard* (RHB, RAM)

Krunal (LHB, LAO) 

Adam Milne* (RAF) 

Rahul Chahar (RALB) 

Boult* (LAM) 

Bumrah (RAF) 

*Rohit confirmed to play this game and Hardik is also fit & available, but a final call be taken before the game. 

KKR: 

Gill (RHB) 

Venkatesh Iyer (LHB, RAM)

Rana (LHB) 

Tripathi (RHB)

Morgan* (LHB) (C) 

Russell* (RHB, RAM)

Krishna (RAF)

Varun (RALB)

*Iyer will continue to open, Russell surprisingly, came at 3 in the last game when it was almost over and couldn’t face a single delivery. But don’t expect him to bat at 3 unless KKR are 100-0. 

Remember we discussed about Venkatesh Iyer in our first preview this season? (KKR vs MI) Already did his job in the first game.

Section 7: Finding the fantasy value: 

Andre Russell (bowling first): Was our captain in the last game and will again be our captain if he bowls first. The last time he faced MI in IPL 2021, he got 5 wickets in just 2 overs that he bowled at the death. Of course, not everyday is a Sunday but you can expect a wicket or two and then 20-25 runs later on. His record with the bat against MI is not his best, especially, while chasing. 

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both. 

Rohit Sharma (batting first): Rohit should be back in this game and is full of confidence after a terrific red ball series in England. Will be facing his favourite side in the IPL & has no major wicket taking threat in the current KKR lineup. (Varun in the PP can be a possible threat, but so far Rohit has not been dismissed against him) 

Rohit Sharma vs KKR: (His most runs & highest average against any IPL team) 

(Also the most runs by any batsman against an opposition)

Recent vs KKR: 43(32), 35(36), 80(54), 55(48), 12(9), 36(31) 

Batting first, the average further increases to 55

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both. 

Suryakumar Yadav (batting first): Even though he failed in the last game, he is still a top captaincy choice the kind of form he is in. Has done well against his former side & should definitely be in your fantasy XI. 

Suryakumar Yadav vs KKR: (His highest average & SR against any IPL side)

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both. 

Bumrah & Boult: The MI bowling duo loves the conditions at Abu Dhabi and has done exceptionally well last season. Both have started well in IPL 2021, and just like last game, both will be my top captaincy choices once again. 

Bumrah & Boult at Abu Dhabi:

Captaincy suitability: Small & grand leagues both.
