Preview for KKR vs KXIP MyTeam11 Contest:
This fixture could prove to be very important in order to determine which team will end up in the 4th place this year. Kolkata Knight Riders managed an excellent victory against heavyweights Delhi Capitals. Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine played fantastic knocks and a fifer from Varun Chakravarthy led them to their sixth win of the season.
Kings XI Punjab are on a fantastic run. For much of the tournament, they were rooted to the bottom of the table but they have now won their last four games. Against Sunrisers, they managed to defend their comparatively low total brilliantly.
Injuries and unavailability:
Andre Russell missed the last game because of injury and it seems unlikely that he’ll feature in this match either. Having been injured while taking a run, in the match against Delhi Capitals, Mayank Agarwal was rested in the previous game and he might miss this match as well.
