Captain Pick for JS vs KT Dream11 Team
Option 1: R Gurbaz
R Gurbaz has made 83 runs in 2 games so far and has been very consistent. But most important has been his scoring rate. He scored 53 runs in just 22 balls in the first game and then blasted another 30 runs from only 18 balls in the second game. Considering his form and his ability to score quickly in the Powerplay, he is a very important player in this match.
Option 2: K Mendis
Kusal Mendis scored 2 very critical knocks in the 2 innings he has batted so far. In the first game, he hammered 30 runs in a very quick time to boost the run-rate and in the second game he looked very promising in his innings of 34 runs from 26 balls but the rain stoppage prevented him from making a big score. So in this game, expect him to make a big score.
Option 1: A Fernando
A Fernando started the tournament with a brilliant 92 run knock from 63 balls. He clobbered 5 fours and 7 sixes in this innings and looked unstoppable. Keeping in mind his brilliant batting in the last game, A Fernando can be expected to make another big score in this game as he should carry his form in this game as well.
Option 2: D Olivier
On a pitch where bowlers were reduced to a pulp, D Olivier impressed with his wicket-taking abilities and was the stand-out bowler. He bowled 4 overs, gave away 44 runs, and picked 4 wickets. Expect him to pick more wickets in this game.
Top 5 Players For JS vs KT Dream11 Team Prediction:
