IPL Fantasy Cricket League 2019 – 3 Key Players Kings XI Punjab

For a team that is yet to win an IPL trophy, Kings XI Punjab has never been short of the big names. In spite of that being the case, aside from a couple of playoffs, the team has almost consistently found themselves at the bottom half of the competition. The team is lucky to have the constant support of their loyal fans and the IPL fantasy cricket league fans.

All the IPL fantasy league fans must have noticed that during the last season, IPL 2018, KXIP had a great start. They had won five of their first six matches. But, after that, they started losing their grip and losing the matches. They failed to turn around in the last season.

Let us take a look at players who are the power play for Kings XI Punjab this IPL Fantasy Cricket League 2019:

Chris Gayle

Christopher Henry Gayle, or maybe the Universe Boss as he loves to be addressed as is a hefty weight so far as T20 cricket games are involved. He still bears the record of the majority of runs in an innings in IPL. He began his career with KKR in the inaugural IPL season, and since then he has been playing for RCB and recently he is a part of KXIP. Kings XI Punjab bought Gayle on IPL 2017, and he wreaked mayhem. He scored big runs and really helped the Punjab team win a couple of matches just by himself.

If he can mirror that form in this season too, he will be worth a lot more than he was picked up for. He is a dangerous batsman at the top of the batting line-up. And that is certainly something that the world already is aware of. But joining up with KL Rahul, another impressive opener makes the KXIP top order really lethal. It is evident that Chris Gayle is an errant match winner.

KL Rahul

KL Rahul is Gayle’s partner, a lot more like Gayle, has a very confident and aggressive style of batting. Regardless if Gayle falls flat, Rahul’s batting skills can save the team on any given day. He has proven how well he can score if he opens the batting in IPL 2018.

Rahul is a very important entity for KXIP and they’ll hope that he can make up to their expectations. But, currently Rahul is going through a rather bad patch where runs are keeping a safe distance away from him, but KXIP is hoping that Rahul will get his form back and hit big runs once the IPL 2019 and IPL T20 fantasy games commence. If that occurs, it will as well make a strong case for his addition into the Indian world cup team. So, KXIP has a perfect opening blend who can turn matches at their will once they get started.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman is an Afghani mystery spinner exactly like Rashid Khan, with the same lethal variants. In IPL 2018, he was a find for the Punjab team. He has taken 14 wickets in the 11 matches at an average of 20. He is the fifth best throughout the IPL season 2018.

Rahman can be very challenging to pick for any batsman and most likely has a long career ahead and KXIP succeeded in doing well to invest in such a young spinner from Afghanistan. To be precise, at his international career, he is already number 8 in the ICC ODI bowler’s ratings.

KXIP also have any other players like Andrew Tye and Mandeep Singh who in addition have the potential to change matches separately and make a huge difference.

During the last season of IPL T20 cricket games, Delhi Capitals has finished at the last of the tables. But if you remember the matches, they have given some good performances at last matches. This is a hope for a better future from their end to their fans, who are eagerly waiting to see one IPL trophy in the team’s hand.

Hence, here is a look at five such Delhi Capitals’ players who have the potential of changing their team’s fortunes at IPL fantasy cricket games:

Prithvi Shaw

This young 19-year-old cricketer from Mumbai has been playing for the Delhi team since IPL 2018. He has scored well in the restricted chances he got. Based on his performance, the Delhi team has decided to keep him for this season too.

During the last year’s IPL, he has scored 237 runs in just 3 innings. It has been expected, he is going to open the batting for the Delhi team this year alongside Shikhar Dhawan, another gem for the team. His aggressive style of batting and his sense of cricket is making him very special for the team.

Cricket expert has the opinion that Shaw will only improve in the years to follow. He has the ability to turn matches around for this team and that might turn the points table for them as well as they have a history of lingering at the bottom of it. Taking him in your IPL fantasy cricket team can let you get good points.

Rishabh Pant

Another young batsman of the team who is also the wicketkeeper for the team has proven his worth for the Indian team. He is an aggressive IPL player, playing 38 matches and scoring 1 century and 8 half centuries. Pant can be destructive on his performing days. He is runaway match winner without a second thought.

Trent Boult

The overseas player from New Zealand, Trent Boult has been another marvellous addition for the Delhi based IPL team. He is the essential pacer for the team who can rake up high speeds steadily. His variations are becoming increasingly deadly with each passing day.

Overall, when Boult delivers, his team goes closer to winning the match. Delhi will hope that he can make good delivery during bowling more often than not.

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan has played for Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2008, the inaugural season. After that, he has been bought by other teams. but for this season he is again back on the Delhi squad.

Dhawan is going to fit into the opening slot for Delhi Capitals. The Delhi-based cricketer is one of the successful players in IPL history. He has already scored 4057 runs, playing 143 games. He has also hit 32 half-centuries in his 11-year IPL career.

Colin Munro

The New Zealand cricketer is arguably the best T20 batsmen around the globe at this moment. He is the leading T20 run score. Do we need to say more about this gem? Or you can guess that he has the capability to bring fortune for Delhi Capitals during this IPL season.
