In that game, Nitish Rana and Andre Russell played commendable knocks of 51 runs and 42 runs respectively for KKR. These two teams have played 30 games against each other in the history of IPL, where both teams have managed to win 15 games each.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
Liam Livingstone is clearly the big game-changer for PBKS in the last few games. However, he has been contained and troubled by left-arm spinners. Axar Patel could provide a massive challenge to the big-hitting Englishman.
Probable XI: David Warner, Phil Salt, Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw/Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Aman Khan, Lalit Yadav, Ripal Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma
Punjab Kings (PBKS)
Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar have never managed to get the better of David Warner in IPL, having bowled 36 deliveries each. Kagiso Rabada may have dismissed the left-hander three times, but Warner has scored at a strike-rate of 171 against the fast bowler. Sam Curran, who has conceded only 26 runs in 34 balls, could be used upfront against Warner.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prabhsimran Singh, Jitesh Sharma, Liam Livingstone, Sikandar Raza, Sam Curran, Shahrukh Khan, Rishi Dhawan, Harpreet Brar, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh, Nathan Ellis
Fantasy XI Suggestion 1:
Philip Salt, Jitesh Sharma, Prabhsimran Singh, Shikhar Dhawan, David Warner, Rilee Rossouw, Axar Patel (vc), Michell Marsh (c), Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Arshdeep Singh
Fantasy XI Suggestion 2:
Philip Salt, Jitesh Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan (c), David Warner, Rilee Rossouw, Axar Patel, Michell Marsh, Liam Livingstone (vc), Sam Curran, Arshdeep Singh, Nathan Ellis
