IPL 2018,KKR v RR: Fantasy picks

This match is going to be crucial not only for KKR and RR but also for the other teams that rely on Net Run Rate and the results of the other teams. A loss here will push one of the teams backwards, and the other team will sit pretty on the table. With RCB winning by a big margin yesterday, the tournament is still wide open. Here are my picks for today.

Safe Pick

Jos Buttler
Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 198

The main reason why Rajasthan is winning right now. After being promoted as the opener, the England superstar has scored five consecutive fifties.

Hot pick

Sunil Narine
Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 185

He powered KKR to a thumping win against Punjab the other night. KKR will need similar knocks from the Windies all-rounder to keep them in the hunt.

Tricky Pick

D’Arcy Short
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 6

The Australian’s lacklustre form in IPL continued even in the last match. He consistently struggled against the deliveries that came back in.

The darkhorse

Ben Stokes
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 55

The England all-rounder provided a great bowling display against Mumbai Indians that brought Rajasthan back into the game.
