On the last weekend of the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Mumbai Indians (MI) will be hosting Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Sunday for the last time in the 56th game of the league stage in IPL 2019. Both the teams have witnessed contrasting fortunes in this season so far, as MI has already qualified for the playoffs race with 16 points, but KKR is still in the qualifying race with 12 points under their belt.
In their respective last games, KKR registered an easy win against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), even MI registered a close win against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), the game which ended in a super over. On Sunday, MI will be looking forward to registering a win to finish the league stage at the top 2 positions, but KKR has to win the game in order to keep their hopes alive to qualify for the playoffs, however, it will also depend on what happens in the RCB and SRh game.
Let us take you all to the Probable Fantasy XI you can create with the following tips:-
Going by the current form, Quinton de Kock seems to be a better pick and he will be having home advantage as well. However, for KKR, Dinesh Karthik has been really well, but only from last 2-3 game and hence, in order to maintain the balance of the fantasy XI, De Kock seems better pick.
Going by the current batting form of both the teams, Surya Kumar, Evin Lewis, Chris Lynn, and Shubman Gill are one of the prime contenders for the fantasy cricket. Apart from them, there are some useful batsmen in the line-ups as well, like Rohit Sharma, Nitish Rana, and Robin Uthappa.
There are some really reliable all-rounders in both the teams but going by the current form, Hardik Pandya, Andre Russell, and Sunil Narine seems to be the perfect fit. Apart from them, the good all-rounder for IPL fantasy cricket is Krunal Pandya.

Both the teams don’t have decent bowling line-ups but they have managed to do a decent job. Bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, and Sandeep Warrier become the obvious choices for the IPL fantasy XI on the batting track of Mumbai. Apart from them, some crucial bowlers can be like, Piyush Chawla, Harry Gurney, and Lasith Malinga.
