The Knights will play thrice this week. So it is important to have three players in particular from their teams.


Today’s match up between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Delhi Daredevils is expected to fetch decent points from the fantasy perspective. Moreover, it will be quite an emotional time for the Knight Riders’ fans as their former Skipper returns to the Eden Gardens in Daredevils’ colours.

As far as the team formation is concerned, I already have players like Gautam Gambhir, Andre Russell and Sunil narine in my team. I won’t make any other changes except one uncapped substitution in the form of Nitish Rana. I’ll only change my decision if Chris Morris plays. Don’t hesitate to make that one extra substitution if he plays. He can be a big miss if you ignore him. I am not too much in favour of bringing in more players from the Daredevils as they don't play any other match until next week.

They won’t make any changes for this contest most probably. Let’s take a look at their PROBABLE XI:




Andre Russell is going to be my power-player for this clash without any hesitation. His all-round potential promises a lot of points even if he bats down the order. Sunil Narine will fetch high scores if he does well with the bat too. Gautam Gambhir may be in for a special knock considering his emotional connect to this place and the way he tames the spinners.

The Knights will play thrice this week. So it is important to have all the three players from their teams I mentioned.
