With both teams in the top half of the Indian Premier League table, Kolkata Knight Riders [KKR] and Rising Pune Supergiant [RPS] will face off in a highly-anticipated contest at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday.
Here, we look at three players who you should look at picking in your fantasy team for this encounter, including our pick for your Power Player.
SUNIL NARINE [1,000,000]
Although Sunil Narine’s bowling [six wickets in 10 matches] hasn’t been up to the mark that is expected from him, he has somewhat made up for it with some impressive performances with the bat at the top of the order.
With the ability to fetch you points with both bat and ball, the West Indian should always be a part of your plans in Fantasy IPL when the Knight Riders are in action.
ROBIN UTHAPPA [900,000]
Robin Uthappa has been in magnificent form this season, having scored 384 runs at an average of 42.66 and a strike-rate of 170.66.
The 31-year-old, in fact, comes into this game on the back of three successive half-centuries and has four 50+ scores in the last five matches.
He is likely to get you some points with his wicket-keeping as well.
BEN STOKES [1,100,000]
After his incredible hundred in the match against Gujarat Lions, how could you possibly leave Ben Stokes out of your team?
The England all-rounder has been the Man of the Match in three out of the five Pune wins that he has played in this season.
While being bought for hefty prices at the IPL auction hasn’t gone too well for some cricketers in the past, Stokes looks to be an exception.
