Fantasy Cricket Expert Tips:
The pitch is going to offer an ample amount of turn and it will assist the batters as well. Players like KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill would enjoy batting here and in the bowling department, a lot depends on spinners.
KKR Squad: Eoin Morgan (Captain), Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, G S Mann, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Rahul Tripathi, Varun Chakravarthy, Pawan Negi, Tim Seifert, Shakib al Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Vaibhav Arora, Karun Nair, Harbhajan Singh, Ben Cutting, Venkatesh Iyer
Kolkata does have a solid squad but at the moment, they are toiling hard to find the right line-up. Thus, we might see a couple of changes both in the batting order as well as the selection. The team might open with Rahul Tripathi and push Nitish Rana a spot below, also, Sunil Narine might take the front seat. They will have to find a way to sneak Lockie Ferguson into the line-up.

PBKS vs KKR Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain
KL Rahul is the overwhelming favourite for the captaincy in the fantasy team. He began the tournament well but had a couple of glitches before finding his form at the right moment in the last match. Against Mumbai Indians, he played a sensible knock to take his team home while chasing a tiny total. He had a half-century there.

Nitish Rana, despite his poor outings in the last couple of matches, is the must-have pick from Kolkata Knight Riders. Once again, a lot depends on his form and the way he bats at the top to give his team a good start. He is their leading run-scorer with 186 runs to his name.
Shubman Gill has an excellent record against PBKS. In his last three matches, he has three half-centuries and averages close to 90. He has a strike rate close to 133. Gill has been struggling throughout the tournament to convert his starts and This could be his day.

With no doubts, Andre Russell and Pat Cummins are more of mandatory picks in this line-up. They both can contribute from both fronts and most importantly, the team depends a lot on them today.
Dinesh Karthik is yet another player with a good record against PBKS. In fact, a couple of matches ago, he smashed a half-century against the same team and helped his team to win the contest.
