KKR vs PBKS Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain

Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal looked in fine touch in the 1st game of the tournament. The duo added 71 runs for the 1st wicket in 7 overs. Agarwal was the first to go and he made 32 runs while Dhawan managed to score 43.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa did well in the first contest and he took the game closer there. When Agarwal got out, he didn’t take much time and went for big shots right from the start to score 43 from just 22.

Liam Livingstone needs no introduction. The England all-rounder chipped in to score 19 runs from just 10 deliveries in the last contest. He couldn’t do much with the ball but is certainly a top pick here.

Venkatesh Iyer holds the key in the KKR line-up. He is yet to perform big in this tournament and got out cheaply in the first two contests. However, a lot depends on his attacking ability here and is a must-have pick along with Rahane, who is currently the leading run-scorer for KKR after the couple of matches.

Umesh Yadav has been an impact bowler for the team in the first two contests. He bought KKR back into the game in the last match where he gave away just 16 runs from his four overs and ended with a couple of wickets.
