KXIP v MI : Players to watch out for

The crickingduels fantasy cricket will suggest you to avoid picking these three players in your team.

1. Barinder Sran: The pacer was taken for runs in the last match and might be replaced by Mohit Sharma. Still, Mohit Sharma is not the ideal bowling option as well. Indore will offer spin so make sure you have spinners in your team.

2. Aaron Finch: The Australian cricketer hasn’t performed well in this IPL and in order to strengthen the middle-order Ashwin might bring Miller back into the team.

3. Ishan Kishan: KL Rahul is the better option here compared to Kishan. Also, in the last two matches, he hasn’t found his timing right.

Three players to watch out for:

1. Rohit Sharma: a Few days back, Rohit Sharma smashed joint fastest ton against Sri Lanka in this very venue. Can he repeat again to take Mumbai well past the line?

2. Hardik Pandya: Though he failed to take his team over the line twice now, from the fantasy point of view, he is consistent with both bat and ball.

3. Ankit Rajpoot: The pacer was the man of the match in both the matches he played. His consistent yorkers and his pace variation will play a vital role at Indore.
