KAR vs PUN dream11 team prediction tips

Some big names missed out in the first game from respective sides but quality players cant be kept out of action. Let’s take a look at some of the important players from both the sides in KAR vs PUN dream11 prediction

Devdutt Padikkal: The southpaw had a destructive season last time around and even went on to have one of the most successful IPL debuts by an Indian player ever. He missed out in the previous game to score big but his team will need him in this game against a quality bowling attack like Punjab.

Krishnappa Gowtham: He is a valuable asset to a fantasy player. He is a 3 dimensional player and can contribute with both bat and ball. He picked 2 wickets in the first game against JK. He is a six hitter down the order as well. He can be a solid pick.

Simran Singh: He opens the batting and it was clear from the last game that his role is to bat through the innings which means, he would get runs more often than not.

Siddharth Kaul: He bowled well in the first game and took 2 wickets including the most important wicket of Rinku Singh. He can be a handy pick as well.

Other picks: Sandeep Sharma, Mandeep Singh, Karun Nair and Prasidh Krishna are all quality picks.

Today KAR vs PUN match score: Team batting first will be looking to score around 160

Today match pitch report: The wicket will be on the drier side and run scoring will be difficult.
