Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals play each other twice in three days and these two fixtures could determine the playoff fate for both these franchises.
While Kings XI have a little more leeway with respect to ‘winning every game’, RR need to jump up the table desperately, as they languish at the bottom at the moment.
Let’s get to business now!
IPL Fantasy League(Fantasy Tips for KXIP vs RR)
Now, I don’t have any player in my squad from this game.
These two franchise play against each other twice in three games and thus I will have to get in a few of their players in order to cash in on this ‘favourable’ schedule.
Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mujeeb ur Rehman, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson and Jofra Archer are the players worth picking for these two fixtures
Now, you need to understand that these transfers will have to be made for two games and thus you’ll need to shell out a few transfers here.
Now, Indore is a flat track with small boundaries, whereas Jaipur is a flat track on most days but with longer boundaries.
KL Rahul will be the first player that I get in for this game, as he has seemed in sublime touch and should get you at least 100 points after the end of these two games.
Jos Buttler is useful only if he opens the batting, but I fear that with D’arcy Short in, Buttler could be moved to the number 6 spot yet again.
Chris Gayle has been in scintillating form this season and the small ground should aid him. Now, this is the transfer that would make or break these two games, and you just have to get the big man in because if he fires, and you don’t have him in your team, you better find a good place to sit alone and cry.
Now, how do we tackle these Rajasthan players?
The safest option out of all the RR players would be Jofra Archer, who is sure to give us at least 4 overs at the death before we have to transfer him out.
Ben Stokes hasn’t delivered until now but he could come good after a string of failures, and if you feel he will, get him in only if RR bat first.
Thus, I get in Jofra if RR bowl first, and Stokes if RR bat first.
For the uncapped player, I’ll get in one from Krishnappa Gowtham and Ankit Rajpoot, depending on my team combination.
Rahul Tripathi could come off well provided he opens the batting, which I don’t think will happen today. I cannot give you my exact team as of now because I can’t edit my team on the IPL Fantasy League website.

Fandromeda(Fantasy Tips for KXIP vs RR)
Transfer out: Ambati Rayudu, Lungi Ngidi, Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Rohit Sharma
Transfer in: Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Jofra Archer, Sanju Samson, Andrew Tye/Mujeeb
Now, I don’t have any player from this game in my side.
Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Jofra Archer and Sanju Samson would be the 4 players that I would get into my side for this game.
Sanju Samson has been in good form this year and could go big during these two games. Get him in!
For the final transfer, get in one from Tye and Mujeeb depending on what KXIP do first. If they bowl first, get in Tye, else get in Mujeeb.
Batting Powerplayer- KL Rahul
Bowling Powerplayer- Andrew Tye/Jofra Archer(whoever bowls first)
