Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals are coming into this contest on the back of victories in their last games. The KKR, after being comprehensively beaten in their first game against Mumbai Indians, showed their true potential against SRH as they comfortably completed a tricky chase, with their batting and bowling both clicking together.

The Royals, on the other hand, have had a roller-coaster ride in the first two games and will be pleased to have come out as the winning side in both the games. Against CSK, they were in a position of comfort for most of the time, while they pulled off an absolute heist against KXIP winning in a dramatic fashion and will bring that momentum into this game. This game has a lot of superstars and in-form players involved.

Here are 3 players you should surely have in your Dream11 team for RR vs KKR game

1. Shubman Gill (8.5 credits)

Shubman Gill should perhaps be one of the first names in your team. He looked extremely good in the last game against SRH where he scored a calm and composed 70* to help KKR chase down SRH’s total on a tricky pitch. He is easily one of the most talented cricketers going around. He has a solid temperament and with the brilliant performance from the last game giving him confidence, expect him to play well again. His credit requirement of just 8.5 is an added bonus.

2. Sanju Samson (9.5 credits)

If there is one batsman who has lit up the IPL, it is Sanju Samson. After a scintillating 74 off 32 balls against CSK, he bettered his performance against KXIP scoring 85 off 42 balls. While Samson has always had that one brilliant innings at the start of the season, this is the first time ever Samson scored consecutive half centuries in the IPL. He looks to be in a good mind space and has been hitting the ball beautifully. However, he has scored all his runs at Sharjah which is a relatively smaller ground and will be eager to prove his merit even in the larger Dubai International stadium.

3. Jos Buttler (10.5 credits)

Much was expected of Jos Buttler against KXIP. But he was coming out of quarantine and looked evidently rusty being dismissed very cheaply. He also has a high credit requirement. In spite of all these factors, Buttler is a gun player. Once he gets into hitting form, it is almost impossible to stop him. Add to that ever since he started opening, he has had phenomenal numbers. This selection is not based on his recent form but what he is capable of. Buttler is a player you should take a bet on.
