Jos Buttler (10.5 credits)
Much had been expected of Jos Buttler to play Kings XI Punjab. But he came out of the quarantine and clearly looked rusty and was dismissed rather cheaply. He also has a high credit requirement. Jos Buttler is a gun player in spite of all these factors. It is almost difficult to stop him once he gets into hitting form. Besides that, he has had incredible numbers since he started opening. This selection is based on what he is capable of, not his recent form. Jos Buttler is a player you should include in your team.
Sanju Samson (9.5 credits)
If there’s one batsman who set the IPL on fire, it’s Sanju Samson. He improved his score against Kings XI Punjab scoring 85 out of 42 balls, after a scintillating 74 out of 32 balls against Chennai Super Kings. Although Sanju Samson often had that one brilliant innings at the beginning of the season, this is the first time ever he scored consecutive half centuries in the IPL. He looks like he’s in a good mind space and has been beautifully hitting the ball. However, at Sharjah, which is a comparatively smaller ground, he has scored all his runs and will be eager to prove his worth even in the larger Dubai International Stadium.
Shubman Gill (8.5 credits)
Shubman Gill should perhaps be one of the first names in your Dream11 team. In the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he looked extremely good, scored a calm and composed 70* to help Kolkata Knight Riders chase down Sunrisers Hyderabad‘s total on a tricky pitch. He’s easily one of the world’s most talented cricketers. He has a good temperament and with the excellent performance from the last match giving him confidence, expects him to perform well again. An additional bonus is his credit requirement of just 8.5.
