David Warner (10.5 credits)
In the first match, David Warner was dismissed in a very unfortunate way being run out at the non-striker’s end after scoring only 6 runs. But the one boundary he smoked through on the off side showed that he was in good form. Kolkata Knight Riders is also a side David Warner that has traditionally performed well against also scoring 829 runs in 21 innings at an average of 43.63 and 147.77 strike rate. David Warner will certainly be raring to go in this match after the disappointment in the last match.
Andre Russell (10.5 credits)
In Kolkata Knight Riders’s first match, Andre Russell, the T20 giant did not really set the game on fire against Mumbai Indians with scoring just 11 runs. But having Andre Russell in your Dream11 team is always sensible because he can get into form in any match and he is unstoppable once he does it.
According to David Hussey, they are exploring options to make Andre Russell bat higher up the order. The Caribbean giant could turn out to be a goldmine of points if he does come up with the order, combined with the fact that he looks to be in good bowling rhythm too.
Jonny Bairstow (9.5 credits)
Jonny Bairstow is the man who led the charge for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their first match, he seems to be in great form. He cleanly struck the ball and hit 61 out of just 43 balls and if it hadn’t been for an unwanted attempt to hit Chahal in his last over, Jonny Bairstow would probably have taken Sunrisers Hyderabad home. Last season, he had excellent performances against Kolkata Knight Riders with 119 runs in 2 innings, including an 80* and with the bonus of his wicket-keeping abilities, you must pick Jonny Bairstow in your Dream11 team.
