KXIP vs MI Dream11 Key Players best picks: Red-hot KL Rahul a no-brainer, Mayank and Kishan could erupt, Pollard and Pooran can be game-changers

KXIP vs MI Dream11 Key Players: Mumbai Indians' inconsistent start to the season came as a no-surprise, after all, the four-time champions are known for hitting their top-level only at a later stage in the competition. The reigning champions lost twice already in the first three games, but the last one, especially, should have hurt the team more. For Rohit Sharma's team were close winning the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, levelling the match, and forcing a super-over, despite Kohli's men putting a daunting 201 on board. That said, Ishaan Kishan's superb 99 runs innings was a blessing. He is likely to hold onto his place in the playing 11. Punjab, on the other hand, are also in the same position, losing twice in the first three games.

Big Picks:

Rohit Sharma: Mumbai Indians' captain is due a big innings. And you can bet the Indian international to play a key role here, for he is too big a talent to fail in successive innings. Sharma is too good a player to miss out either as captain or vice-captain in KXIP vs MI Dream11 Match Prediction.

KL Rahul: It's incredible to see Rahul donning the captaincy armband with so much finesse, that he is playing, or seems so, with freedom, making some incredible shots, and making game-changing decisions. It doesn't matter whether, Punjab opts to bat first or field, Rahul should be in your Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.

Hardik Pandya: Hasn't been anywhere near the level we all know he can consistently touch in every game. We all know how good he can be, and the fact that he is an elite all-rounder, selecting him, if he clicks, can really fetch a good amount of points in KXIP vs MI Today Match Prediction match.

Jasprit Bumrah: There are not many bowlers who can bowl as effectively as Bumrah and throw in his clutch game into the fold and you get an incredibly super player. He is a no-brainer in any Dream11 fantasy football match.

Mayank Agarwal: He has been there at the top level for some time now, but his recent innings in IPL shows that he might be hitting his peak. The 29-tear-old Indian batsman erupted for an incredible 106 runs off just 50 balls in the last match, with 82 of those runs coming in boundaries.

Glenn Maxwell: Could do with a little contribution here following some average outings with both bat and ball in the IPL this season. But he can be super commanding and should not be ignored at all.

Smart Picks:

  • Ishaan Kishan: Came in as a substitute for the injured Tiwary, but he was anything but a stooge as he played a superb innings, hitting all the bowlers all around the park. He can be a game-changer.
  • Kieron Pollard: Scored his 1st IPL 50 in more than two years, but that's not a good reflection of his true impact on this team, as most of the times, he bats at the lower order, as a pinch-hitter.
