Rajasthan Royals kept their hopes alive of qualifying for the playoffs with a comprehensive win over Kings XI Punjab yesterday. Buttler top-scored for Royals with a brilliant 84 to ensure that RR reached a competitive total and the Kings XI Punjab never got going and lost wickets at regular intervals, even though an unbeaten knock of 95 from KL Rahul ensured that Kings XI got closer to the target and their NRR wasn’t affected much.

KKR face MI in the only game at Kolkata today. MI can leapfrog KKR in the table to the fourth play-off spot with a win over them and KKR will be looking to consolidate their position with a win today. Both teams are likely to go with the same eleven that played their last game.

Here’s our suggestion for the playing XI in today’s games (5 core players who are a must have for today’s game are marked as “CP”).

Today’s Best Eleven for Fantasy for KXIP Vs RR:

1.     Sunil Narine - CP

2.     Suryakumar Yadav - CP


3.     Rohit Sharma

4.     Robin Uthappa

5.     Nitish Rana

6.     Dinesh Karthik – CP

7.     Andre Russell- CP

8.     Krunal Pandya

9.     Hardik Pandya-CP

10.  Jasprit Bumrah

11.  Piyush Chawla

Alternative Options:

There are alternative options for the players who have not been listed under the 'Core Players' in the above eleven. You can consider these players in your team in place of those who are not core players.

1.     Chris Lynn

2.     Kuldeep Yadav

3.     Ishan Kishan

4.     Mitchell McClenaghan

5.     Evin Lewis 

Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik

Captain Options:

1.    Rohit Sharma – He is hitting form at the right time and his record at Eden Gardens is phenomenal. He will be a very good choice as captain for tonight’s game.

2.    Andre Russell – He couldn’t get going with the bat but picked up two important wickets in the last game vs MI. He will again be key for KKR both with the bat and ball and he is due for a big score.
