KXIP vs SRH Dream11 Key Players
Match day 4 of the Dream11 IPL will see KL Rahul's Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) lock horns with Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Dubai International Stadium. The Kings will be devastated after missing out on a chance to collect maximum points against the Delhi Capitals as they failed to score a run with three balls remaining. The game rolled onto the super over and it were the Delhi Capitals that emerged as the winners. Meanwhile, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will be pleased after securing a 10-run win versus the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The red army will be looking to build onto recently found momentum, while, Punjab are eager to cross the line this time around with no further complications. With that being said, let's take a look at KXIP vs SRH Dream11 Key Players who could have a major impact in the game.
KL Rahul did get off to a start against the Delhi Capitals but failed to capitalize by going on further. The KXIP captain scored 21 of 19 deliveries but has scored 614 runs from the last 15 appearances for his side, which includes six fifties and a hundred. Rahul will be eager to get his campaign up and running against his former franchise later tonight.
Highest Score: 100*
It's next to impossible to leave Virat Kohli out out any team. The RCB skipper didn't have a bright start with the bat as he managed to score 14 runs versus SRH but is expected to bounce back with a bang. Kohli has scored 478 runs from the last 15 appearances with two fifties and a hundred to his name.
Highest Score: 113
The clear cut standout with the bat for KXIP in the first game as he scored 89 of 60 balls against DC. Agarwal single handedly guided his side to the finish line from an extremely difficult situation at one stage, but failed in the final few moments for not being able to get the win. Nevertheless, the Karnataka based batsman did display his sheer talent and quality with the bat while opening the innings in place of Chris Gayle.
Highest Score: 89
AB de Villiers
Mr 360 once again showcased his class against SRH in spite of being on a break from cricket for quite a while. Ab de Villiers struck a quick-fire 51 of just 30 deliveries and added yet another another accolade to his illustrious IPL career. The former South African skipper is a genuine match winner and can once again pose a threat here.
Highest Score: 133*
Mohammad Shami is as rhythmic as ever and is expected to spearhead the bowling attack for the Kings. Shami was instrumental against the Delhi Capitals as he scalped three wickets for just 18 runs from his four over spell. The RCB batsmen will be wary of the threat Shami poses and might have to see off his spell in order to prevent damage.
Best Figures: 3/18
The Player of the Match versus the Sunrisers and rightly so. Yuzvendra Chahal came in when SRH were cruising at one stage and got the all important wicket of Jonny Bairstow. The big wicket of Bairstow led to a major collapse as Chahal ended the game with bowling figures of three for 18 and played a pivotal role in RCB's impressive win.
Best Figures: 4/25
Ravi Bishnoi: The 19-year-old started off his IPL career in a very mature manner and displayed no sense of nervousness in the match against Delhi. Bishnoi picked up the big wicket of Rishabh Pant and even made life difficult for him by bowling according to his preferred field setting. Bishnoi gave away just 22 runs in the process and there are definitely signs of more to come from his end.
Devdutt Padikkal: Another impressive debut, but this time from the RCB camp. Paddikal opened the innings with Aaron Finch and started his innings off in fearless manner. He ended up scoring 56 runs from 42 deliveries and will be more towards the confident side of things heading into his second game.
