Here is our KXIP Predicted XI vs KKR:
KL Rahul (c & wk): KL Rahul has been brilliant this season and he will be happy with his team’s performance in the past four games.
Mayank Agarwal: Mayank Agarwal had to miss out the last game due to injury but he may return against KKR.
Chris Gayle: Chris Gayle has not been his thunderous best, but his presence has given much-needed balance and energy to KXIP.
Nicholas Pooran: Nicholas Pooran’s contribution of 32 made the difference against SRH. He is a match-winner for KXIP.
Glenn Maxwell: Glenn Maxwell has been backed by KL Rahul so far, and there is no reason why he will be dropped against KKR.
Deepak Hooda: Deepak Hooda has not been consistent but he can certainly do the damage in death overs.
Murugan Ashwin: M Ashwin can contain runs in the middle over and hence he could still be a part of the KXIP team.
Chris Jordan: Chris Jordan was the match-winner for KXIP against SRH and he needs to do more of the same as the tournament reaches the business end.
Mohammed Shami: Mohammed Shami has been lethal with the new ball but needs to improve in death overs.
Ravi Bishnoi: Ravi Bishnoi has been a great addition to KXIP line-up as he always breaks partnerships. He is key in every game.
Arshdeep Singh: Arshdeep Singh has showcased in the past two games why he should have been picked in early games for KXIP.
KXIP Predicted XI vs KKR: KL Rahul (c & wk), Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, Murugan Ashwin, Chris Jordan, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh
