Andre Russell (10.5 credits)
The T20 superstar needs no introduction. When in the zone, in today’s day and age, there is no more destructive batsman than Andre Russell. He managed to score 222 runs in 9 innings with 3 50s even on sluggish pitches in the recently concluded CPL.
While his fitness problems might prevent him from bowling, KKR ‘s inclusion of Eoin Morgan makes their middle order much more flexible, and this season Andre Russell is likely to get more balls to play, and whenever Andre Russel has got time in the middle, he was able to score massive runs.
Quinton de Kock (9.5 credits)
Quinton de Kock was the only Mumbai Indians batsman who seemed to hit the ball cleanly in the first match. Out of just 20 balls, he scored a quickfire 33 and timed the ball very well. He is a batsman who can make full use of the powerplay and will enjoy the pace of the bowlers of the Kolkata Knight Riders. Quinton de Kock being a keeper is an extra bonus .
Shubman Gill (8.5 credits)
A shining young talent, this is undoubtedly going to be Gill’s career-defining season. He was highly talked about by coach Brendon McCullum and, according to him, Shubman Gill will not only bat right through the season in the top order, but will also play a leadership role in the squad.
With 296 runs in 14 innings, Shubman Gill had an excellent season last year. Gill could really flourish this season with a calm head over his shoulders, an exceptional temperament, and a good & solid technique. He’s a must pick in your Dream11 team.selection of a must.
