Andre Russell (10 credits)
Andre Russell, as shocking as it might sound, is better removed than included from your Dream11 squad. This year, he has looked extraordinarily rusty and has so far been able to make no critical contributions. He will be desperate to up the ante with more than half of the IPL gone, but it has not succeeded for him so far. He was still decent with the ball with 6 wickets in 8 games, but his battle with the bat is evident from his number of 83 runs in 8 matches.
Nitish Rana (9 credits)
While otherwise a promising contender, Nitish Rana has so far not been able to get into the rhythm. His form has been fluctuating with 155 runs at a dismal average of 19.37 in 8 games, and he has misfired barring the odd game. Also, there are better choices for selecting from a vast pool of KKR match-winners.
Vijay Shankar (8 credits)
It seems to be an interesting choice given his credit requirement of just eight Shankar. However, his success has not justified his credit rating as much as he would have liked, with 12 runs and a single wicket in 3 games. He can’t get much of a chance with the bat because of the excellent form of the batsmen batting above him. It would be better not to include Shankar.
