Mayank Markande

The skilled leg-spinner from Punjab, Mayank Markande was one of the major surprises of IPL 2018 as he performed very well in the tournament. In the last season, he picked up 15 wickets from 14 matches at an average of 24.53 and an economy rate of 8.36. His best figure was 23/4.

The previous year has been quite great for the 21-year-old as he did fairly well wherever he performed. He also made his T20I debut against Australia lately. With Mumbai team lacking any world-class spinner in their team, Markande is going to be their front line spinner for the tournament. MI has high hopes from him this season.

Jasprit Bumrah

Undoubtedly, Jasprit Bumrah is now one of the best bowlers at world cricket in all formats. He has been in superb form lately. His capability to pick wickets and bowl Yorkers makes him a very deadly bowler in T20. He not merely picks wickets but also makes it tough for batsmen to score runs. The 25-year-old will certainly be a spearhead of MI’s fast bowling attack this season.

IPL had been a cutting-edge tournament for Bumrah’s career as he got a chance to play international cricket after accomplishing well in IPL. Until now, Bumrah has played 61 matches in IPL and has taken 63 wickets at an average of 28.16 and an economy rate of 7.81. His best figure is 7/3.

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma is debatably among the best-limited overs batsmen right now and will be Mumbai Indians’ most significant batting player in IPL 2019. He has been a steady performer in IPL since its beginning.

But, the last couple of IPL seasons have not been sufficiently good for The Hitman as he underperformed by his expectations and his low-quality show with the bat was one of the primary reasons of Mumbai’s letdown this past year. Hence, he will certainly wish to make a mark in this season, IPL 2019. In his IPL career, Rohit has scored 4493 runs from 168 innings at an average of 31.87 and a strike of 131.03. His highest at the IPL is 109.

Rohit has been a brilliant captain for the MI as they have won all the three IPL titles under his captaincy. So if the team wishes to win the IPL fantasy cricket 2019, in that case, Rohit has to rise up and lead the team from the front side.

Krunal Pandya

Krunal is somebody who is equally good in the three departments of cricket. His power to score quick runs and to pick wickets without offering too many runs makes him a perfect T20 all-rounder.

Until now, he has made 39 appearances in IPL for MI. He has scored 708 runs at an average of 29.5 and a very good strike rate of 153.91 with 86 being his highest score. While bowling, he has taken 28 wickets from 37 innings at an average of 28.32 and an amazing economy rate of 7.12. His best figure is 14/3. Krunal Pandya is going to be one of MI’s most significant players in IPL fantasy cricket 2019.

He was their prominent run scorer last season when he notched up 498 runs in 16 games. He will have to lead by example once more if the team think of achieving their targets this IPL 2019.

Even though they had been beaten by Sunrisers Hyderabad convincingly in Qualifier 2 as they had left the tournament, they had announced to the globe that they must not be taken casually.

Andre Russell

Andre Russell, the West Indies player, is heading to be one of the main players for Kolkata team again this IPL fantasy cricket league season. He scored 316 runs in 14 innings in IPL 2018 and he is going to score more in IPL 2019.

Russell will likely be an important player who will choose many games Kolkata Knight Riders win this year. The fans will certainly look forward to his aggressive batting, successful bowling and sharp fielding when he steps on the cricket field.

Sunil Narine

Sunil Narine, the Jamaican player of Indian origin, has been an essential figure for KKR ever since he joined the team in 2012. He was an important player when they won their titles in 2012 & 2014 and is going to dominate with both bat and ball this season as well.

Narine is generally an opener of KKR. He plays strongly in the powerplays and piles up a few quick runs so that the middle order does not come under any pressure afterwards. He has scored 357 runs in 16 innings during last season.

Narine is additionally quite effective when it comes to his bowling. He picks wickets at frequent intervals and generally finishes his quota of 4 overs in an exceedingly effective and efficient manner.

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.

(Also read – IPL Fantasy League Team Overview – Kings XI Punjab)

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.
