Best Performers – KOL vs PBKS    

(KOL) – Rahul Tripathi is a must-pick for your fantasy teams. He is highly underrated, as his numbers prove how effective he has been. He is the leading run-scorer for Knight Riders in this IPL with 315 runs in 10 innings.

(PBKS) – Aiden Markram is a fine replacement for Dawid Malan for the second leg of the IPL. He has done quite well in his first 3 matches by scoring 95 runs in 3 matches at an average of 47.5. Moreover, Markram is handy with the ball as well.

(KOL) – Sunil Narine was the player of the match in the last match against Delhi Capitals for his all-around display. He picked up 2 wickets at an economy of 4.5 and later scored a quickfire 21 runs from just 10 deliveries.

(KOL) – Venkatesh Iyer has been one of the finds of the season. The KKR all-rounder has scored 126 runs, while he also has picked up 2 wickets.
