Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad– Top Fantasy Picks 

Johnny Bairstow: The destructive opener of SRH will be vital if they want to defeat KKR. Upfront, Bairstow will be looking to take advantage of the fielding restrictions and give his side a flying start. 

David Warner: Whenever Warner scores runs SRH more often than not is on the winning side. The consistent skipper of SRH needs to fire in a significant match. 

Rashid Khan: You just can’t look beyond Rashid Khan when SRH takes the field. The champion spinner is the most important player for his side as his 4 overs will be like gold dust for his side against KKR. 

Shubman Gill: In the last few matches, Gill hasn’t been able to get going and give his side a terrific start. However, Gill has shown this season that he is well capable of executing big shots and will be keen to unleash them against SRH. 

Eoin Morgan: After a horror last match, their new skipper Eoin Morgan needs to inspire his side. In the middle order, Morgan has the game to change the course of the match in a matter of few overs. 

Andre Russell: The big all-rounder of KKR has had a disappointing tournament thus far. If Russell can find his form against SRH his side will certainly become favourites to clinch the match.
