Kings XI Punjab lock horns with the Kolkata Knight Riders for the 52nd match of the Indian Premier League 2019.

“I would like to think that I am right up there as I have been here for a long time now. It is my 11th season and I believe that I have a good job.”

Aware of the criticism that is going around: Dinesh Karthik

“I understand that cricket is a high-pressure sport and IPL is a high octane tournament. I am aware of the bickering and back-biting but I try to make sure that nothing of this sort happens.”

Fantasy Picks Kolkata Knight Riders:

  • Andre Russell has been the go-to man for KKR. He has amassed 486 runs in 12 matches at a staggering strike rate of 207.69. The Top scorer for the team, Russell also boasts of hitting the most number of sixes in the tournament so far.
  • KKR shuffled their batting order in their last match against MI and it yielded results for them. Shubman Gill who was sent to open smashed 76 runs off 45 balls. He would aim to continue his form.

Fantasy Picks Kings XI Punjab:

  • If it's the muscle power of Russell that has worked wonders for the KKR, it's Gayle who has sent the balls out in the parks for KXIP.
  • KL Rahul is the leading scorer for the KXIP with 520 runs in 12 matches.
