What are MI vs KKR Fantasy Tips?

  • All of Rohit, Kishan and Suryakumar have an excellent head-to-head record against KKR. We suggest you make each C/VC in different GL teams. A POTM is pending For SKY. And most likely it is coming in this match.
  • A 160-180 scoring match is expected here.
  • Nehal Wadhera and Nitish Rana are your Out-of-the-box picks.
  • Skipping Narine as a Captain might give you a healthy advantage over others as Narine’s performance against Mumbai and at Wankhede is the worst of his career. However, he is in great touch and showing consistency.
  • In most of the matches won by KKR against MI, Russell has been brilliant. If you are making a team favouring KKR, make Russell C/VC.
