- Shane Watson: He is long due for a good inning off the bat. Expect him to go big on a ground with short boundaries. He usually has some tricks up his sleeve with his bowling too.
- AB de Villiers: If he plays today’s match, expect him to go all guns blazing on KXIP bowlers.
- Kedar Jadhav: He is getting better and better every day. With the form he is in, it would be tough to keep him out of your fantasy team.
- David Miller: He has been in great touch recently in South Africa’s domestic league. However, he is a weak player of spin and that could go against him.
- Axar Patel: An uncanny customer with the ball and hard hitter with the bat. Great to have him on your team.
